Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge will arrive on Wii U in North America with the launch of the Nintendo system, and today, the firm has announced extra details for the Team Ninja slasher.

Razor’s Edge will launch with new weapons and characters, a redesigned battle system and online multiplayer modes along with extra features and enhancements exclusive to Wii U.

  • Ayane as a playable character: In previous versions of the game, Ayane appeared only briefly in one cut scene. Now players can help her progress through her own exclusive chapters using a special set of weapons and Ninpo attacks.
  • Character-progression system: Using Karma points earned during game play, players can upgrade weapons and Ninpo, learn new moves, increase their HP level and unlock new character costumes.
  • Ryu and Ayane playable in co-op mode: For the first time, players can use Ryu or Ayane to represent themselves in the game’s online co-op mode.
  • Test of Valor battle areas: Each chapter includes a hidden battle area called Test of Valor. Upon finding hidden Crystal Skulls, players will be transported to these areas to face down waves of enemies and classic NINJA GAIDEN boss characters with new moves.
  • Wii U GamePad Functionality: Using the Wii U GamePad, players can easily change weapons or Ninpo attacks, and also quickly reference the button inputs required for various combo attacks without ever stopping the action.
  • Additional Playable Characters: After the launch of the game, additional playable characters will become available as free downloadable content. More information about these characters will be revealed at a later time.
  • More Tenacious Enemies: The Wii U version of the game restores enemies’ ability to fight when severely wounded, requiring players to stay nimble with their battle strategies.

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge will release on November 18.

    Maybe Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge will be the worth NG3 the fans wanted ?!, I am not that big of NG fan due to the weak story, I was interested in NG3, but seeing the scores it felt so lame to me and I skipped it, but this one seems to have fixed alot of issues, so those really interested and getting WiiU may need to check it out.

    @3 Ninja Gaiden is about the gameplay and brutal difficulty that test your skills as a gamer. You want a really good story go comment on Heavy Rain or Beyond Two Souls or something.

    Ninja Gaiden for the Wii U looks badass. I will be getting this day 1 along with Mario and ZombiU

    thanks my wife Step

    the game is insane!
    whose gonna buy this!?
    Tecmo ripped off everyone with their Alpha NG3 on xbox/ps3.
    who would buy the Wii U?

    i would get it but not getting Wii u cuz it’s too expensive and it’s made from child labour.

    i don’t think this game would sell well unless Nintendo TV market it
