Ninja Gaiden 3 is coming to Wii U this holiday season as Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge. And it’s not coming as the same Ninja Gaiden 3 we saw in February. Razor’s Edge will improve upon the original game in “every way,” including “more weapon and Ninpo types, a new character progression system, a redesigned battle system and the return of dismemberment.”
Nintendo provided a detailed list of features for the title:
- Unique Wii U controls – During single-player mode, players can enjoy faster and more fluid action by using the touch screen of the Wii U GamePad controller to select weapons, execute Ninpo, see in-game information and much more.
- New Weapons and Ninpo Types – Exclusive to the Wii U version, the game includes six weapon types and three Ninpo types, allowing for greater game-play variation and deeper strategy.
- Character/Weapon Progression System – Using the Karma points earned during game play, a player can upgrade his weapons and Ninpo and increase the character HP level.
- Faster, More Intense Battles – Improved enemy AI, the return of dismemberment, as well as new enemy types and battle areas have been added for greater variety in battles and increased replay value.
