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

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.
