Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge launch trailer plays down Wii U features

Thursday, 8th November 2012 01:07 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge sports a number of Wii U exclusive features but this trailer is pretty quiet on the topic, preferring instead to remind us of all the reasons we wanted it on the other consoles (to wit: Ryu is awesome).

What’s particularly interesting about Razor’s Edge is that it seems to address a number of concerns which led to Ninja Gaiden 3 receiving a less than enthusiastic response on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 earlier this year. These include improved AI, new enemy types, the return of the Karma Counter, an upgrade system, and the ability to chop up your foes.

The Wii U version also packs in all the DLC, a 1080p upgrade, optional touch controls, exclusive new weapons and one additional playable character – Ayane – who can be used in any chapter through Challenge Mode.

Ninja Gaiden 3: razor’s Edge arrives on Wii U at launch – November 18 in the US and November 30 in Europe.

Thanks, All Games Beta.

    Shouldn’t they release this game on other platforms too just to salvage a bit a pride and fame the series lost due to NG3?

    This game sucked on the PS3, it sucked on the Xbox 360, and now it will suck on the Wii U. Also, @Dragon246, they should, but I’m not sure much can be saved, seeing as how this franchise lost it’s lifeblood when the series creator left Team Ninja.

    The games wasn’t that bad… It is a alright Hack’n'Slash game but its very disappointing as a Ninja Gaiden game.
