Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge PS3, Xbox 360 additions detailed

New details on weapons, Ninpo, and Ninja Trials.

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 will have new weapons, Ninpo, and Ninja Trials, Tecmo Koei has announced.

Main character Ryu Hayabusa will be able to wield new weapons like the slow but powerful Dual Swords, which can blast back opponents with a shock wave. Or the Lunar Staff, which gains a ball-and-chain on each side when fully upgraded, allowing for additional, Ki-earning combos. Then there’s the Kusari-Gama scythe, which players can bury into the heads of their enemies before “pole vaulting” higher to attack more enemies.

Additional Ninpo abilities include Piercing Void, which creates a vacuum to cut through enemies, and the Cicada Surge, which can “turn the tide of battle” and is even usable while taking damage.

Ayane, Momoji, and Kasumi have new skills, as well.

Ninja Trials, a marathon challenge mode, will offer 100 trials for players to best. They include “grueling battles,” like fighting two Regents of the Mask simultaneously.

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge is due out for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on April 2. View a new set of screenshots at the gallery.
