Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge Coming to PS3 and Xbox 360

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge

Developer Tecmo Koei officially announced Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge will be coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this April. The announcement comes as a shock as Razor’s Edge was originally designed as a Wii U exclusive enhanced port of the original Ninja Gaiden 3, which released last year for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The Wii U version featured new elements unique to the Nintendo console that were designed to utilize the Gamepad controller and give Ninja Gaiden fans a new way to play their favorite series. New characters, weapons and Ninpo attacks were just some of the new features implemented into the Wii U port in addition to the highly desired return of dismemberment in combat.

[adsense250itp]As with many great stories in the modern gaming society, word of Razor’s Edge coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 originally came from a leaked posting on a Japanese retailer’s site listing the game for the consoles with a release date of Apr. 4. Now confirmed by Tecmo Koei, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge is currently set for an Apr. 2 release in North America with Europe close behind on Apr. 5.

One of the most notable and anticipated changes coming to the game is the inclusion of an upgraded co-op feature that allows players to step into the roles of Ryu and Dead or Alive’s Ayane. The purple-haired vixen will be joining the series’ main protagonist Ryu Hayabusa as well as Momiji and Kasumi, who were previously included in the original Ninja Gaiden 3. PS3 and Xbox 360 players will also be receiving new costumes for all four playable characters. Whether or not these will also apply to the Wii U version is still unknown.

Reasoning behind updating an existing title with a Wii U exclusive port only to turn around and re-port that port back onto the original consoles it released for is beyond us but we’re glad that those of us who haven’t yet splurged on a Wii U will still be able to experience Razor’s Edge.
