Ninja Gaiden 3 wasn’t terribly well received due to its neutering of the series’ trademark action in favor of shallow button-mashing and a rather inane plot. Thankfully, Team Ninja realized the error of their ways and did a developmental U-Turn by releasing the revamped Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge for Wii U last year, which was well-received by fans. Now it’s been announced the revised edition is also coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 so that players of the original disappointment can have their mental wounds healed.
Announced by Tecmo Koei and releasing on April 2 in North America, this version will include all the enhancements and additions that the Wii U version, those being increased blood and the reintroduction of dismemberment, harder overall difficulty, revamped combat, a new upgrade system, new weapons, and new playable characters, including a chapter focusing on series favorite (for obvious reasons) Ayane.
No price point has been announced for this release of Razor’s Edge, but we’re guessing (and hoping) that it goes for a budget price tag of around $39.99 or so. That’s currently what the Wii U version is going for, anyway.
Have you played Razor’s Edge on the Wii U? If so, were you satisfied with it, and did it alleviate the many issues that infested the original release of Ninja Gaiden 3? Let us know, and stay tuned for more dismemberingly good news here at OnlySP. Be sure to check out our forums as well, bub.
