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.

  1. never played the wii U form of the game but the demo doesn’t(for ps3) disappoint it was heart pumping all out jaw dropping action it felt like it was more then just a demo not only was it fun it also challenged the players on the harder difficulties. Anyway i played the original design of ninja gaiden 3 it was fun but not like its latest edition.(even the demo is better the the full game it’s self the older model for that matter) Here are my thoughts on the selling price of ninja gaiden 3 razor’s edge. If you ask me I say those who bought the previous form of the game should be able to trade their’s in for the new one as fair exchange for buying a game we thought would be good. if i got the bad form of the game and you make a new better one. I’d want my cash back. but If can’t get my money’s worth why not trade i herd a rumour that they my consider trades it my come true but i’ll be outraged if they don’t. Cause if they tryed to scam their loving fans for money i just may sue. Now the DLCS. for publishing the previous form of the game the have much to make up for i believe the dlcs should be free well the costume ones that have been reveled on the web and free (online cards) community online access for multiplayer.they won the hearts of many fans for NG ( ninja gaiden ) and for the previous form of NG3 ( ninja gaiden 3 ) i believe they have alot to make up for so i think my requests i mentioned earlier are the price they should pay at least.
