Wii U

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge Free DLC Will Add More Playable Characters


Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge on Wii U brings back dismemberment and includes more weapons in the base game. This morning, Nintendo shared a new trailer that shows off both of these aspects, with Ryu using multiple weapons to cut things to shreds:



Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge also adds Ayane to the game as a playable character. Ayane has her own chapters, but a separate mode in the game will let you play all chapters using either her or Ryu. She and Ryu can also team up in a new co-op online multiplayer mode.


Team Ninja also made enemies in Razor’s Edge more aggressive, improved AI, and upped the game’s difficulty. There are plans for free DLC as well, and Nintendo announced this morning that these will be in the form of additional playable characters, which will be revealed at some later date.


Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge will be released on November 18th in the U.S., alongside the Wii U.
