Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge coming to PS3, Xbox 360

Wii U action game from Team Ninja due out April 2 online and at physical retail for Sony and Microsoft consoles.

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge will not be a Wii U exclusive for much longer. Tecmo Koei announced today that the action game from Team Ninja will be ported to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for release on April 2, 2013. The game will be available at physical retail and via download.

The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions include a host of features and enhancements over Ninja Gaiden 3, which launched last March behind a tepid critical reception. These include additional playable characters, a new gameplay mode, a redesigned battle system, and "expanded online features."

All previous paid downloadable content from Ninja Gaiden 3 will be available in Razor's Edge from the get-go. In addition, players can take part in multiplayer clan battles, which support up to eight players and feature five new stages.

I didn't purchase this game before because the demo felt wrong and ... well, the review purchased. Even if I'm compensated for more luck tan patience, this is gonna be remembered from this devs and we will aproach they're games with caution. A caution that will hurt first day sales.

Cant wait for the release!!!! They really improved the Gameplay and the bonus content from the Orginal NG3! :D

Good news, everyone who hated the Original NG3 can now play the better version with Ayane as a playable character. Will this recognize the save data of the original?

WHOO! YES! Actually, I don't care. The original Ninja Gaiden was, or is one of my favorite games ever made, the revamps over time were pretty good as well, Ninja Gaiden 2 was alright (in a good way), but I found it hard to want to play it for a good while after the time I had initially got it, and then after I beat it, I didn't feel like playing it anymore; I never did get through Sigma 2 because of a lack of interest, and three just doesn't matter to me at all.

Look forward to it, though all the weapons are recycled from NG2, wish they could throw some new ones into the mix.

Oh wow so people like me wasted money on the earlier shitty version, and they expect us to fully pay for another upgraded version which shouldve been the initial release instead!? Smart move Tecmo. Reaaal smart.......  Ain't nobody got cash fo dat

Hey, why you removed the dismemberment in PS3 and 360?
"We wanted you to feel the violence and be shocked, not to see enemies as things you can dispose of, but something that has impact" (Which makes shot of sense in an artistic way)

OMG look! our game does terrible in both critics and sales. Put back the gore! put back the limbs!

This is why I hate TECMO. Not only they don't care about the fans, they also have no respect for their own works.

@Nxss-effa-sim  So don't buy it. I don't get people like you that write about how they aren't interested based on what they seen.

It's just a re-hash of one of the worst games of 2012, it just doesn't worth it

I am glad that I still did not buy yet  Ninja Gaiden 3 before. Now I can buy the full pack in one game at once.

I hope Bayonetta 2 goes multi plat as well. Hell, I hope they make a Vanquish 2 while they are at it.

Isn't Razor's Edge also a gaming laptop?  The name of a book?  a movie?  Also a friggin ACDC album I believe.

@NTM23 NG2 was alright? how dare you? :s if your a fan of hack n slash then you might have to reconsider!

@dovonob Ha ha ha, give a chance you may end up not hating it, but seriously where the hell is Ninja Gaiden Sigma 3, is it ever coming out or is this it's replacement?

@zhaffy I do since I wasn't fooled into buying the crap version. I kinda knew this would happened when the version of Wii U was announced. I already knew ether way we would get the water down version.

@CivilizedPsycho That loser has yet to put out a single game. At least the rest of team ninja is still working. Also without him dumb ass ideas like DOAX do not get made. Please stop worshiping people based on few successes. Everyone in the industry has made one crappy game.

@Oldboy08 As great as that would be, it never will happen, not while Nintendo is the publisher.

MajinSquall

@Oldboy08 doubt it because Nintendo are funding and publishing Bayonetta 2 unlike with NG3:RE which they just published

@Oldboy08 Did you not get the memo? Is published by Nintendo. Is not happening. Nintendo owns the license now. Give up on that dream. Or buy a Wii U.

While a Vanquish 2 sounds great, don't count on Bayonetta 2 going multiplat, if anything, it looks like Platinum is shaping up to become a 2nd party of Nintendo considering that both Bayonetta 2 and The Wonderful 101 are Wii U exclusives.

@Oldboy08 Nobody wanted Bayonetta 2 until Nintendo saved the game.  Why would it go multiplat?  Game would not exist if not for Nintendo.

@Rotondi and perhap's most importantly, Razor Ramon's finishing move.

@NINJASMOKER @dovonob  

What is this rubbish anyway is it just like Ninja Gaiden Black as in just the original game with some added bits? Never had a playstation so never played any of the Sigma versions?

If I'm honest ninja gaiden 3 is quite possibly the most disapointing piece of crap sequel to any game I've ever played. It made me want to cut myself. Wasn't overly impressed with 2 either to be honest but at least it sort of still felt like ninja gaiden 1.

@ExplicitMike @CivilizedPsycho hmmm... what's wrong with DOAX? Just because you don't like it doesn't mean it's dumb ass idea. By the way how come you hate Itagaki so much? You his ex-wife or sth?

Oldboy08
Oldboy08

@ExplicitMike yeah.... Not gonna waste my money on a Wii U. Nintendo region locks its consoles so I will not be buying a Wii U as I move around quite a bit.

@abHS4L88 @Oldboy08 and that's why MGR isn't getting a release on the WiiU.... OK then. Platinum games will never be exclusive to Nintendo.

@AlmaDanny Last time I checked you admitted to kissing his ass. So how is that me insulting you first? You said you were doing that. In reality you started with the insults. Also I had all sorts of discussions with people on here. Including the Wii U. So just because that I am trolling people? If there one person that needs to grow up here is you. If I am trolling anyone is Itagaki and not gamespot users. I really don't care if you don't like me saying things about Itagaki. 

AlmaDanny
AlmaDanny

@ExplicitMike @AlmaDanny Kid you started insulting me for being Itagaki's fan and sounds like the you feel threatened by the capsize of the girls from DOAX. Probably the real reason you hate DOAX Just let it go hon it's just a game. God just realised you are all over the comment section well aren't you a little troll. Now there is no law against trolls so just behave will ya?

ExplicitMike
ExplicitMike

@AlmaDanny Yeah many didn't like that game. It made a lot of people mad. It was a dumb ass idea to me and maybe not you. But why is it that no other fighting game ever bother doing something so stupid. Maybe is because developers also think is a stupid idea. Since we are gonna act childish. Why are you defending him so much? Are you his current girlfriend? You can't be because your cupsize probably isn't about Ds.

@Oldboy08 I can understand that. Just miss out then. No biggie. There are plenty of other games around.

Your opinion, if you're tired of me, ignore my comments, simple as that. It's not like I post much on this site anymore.

Because Konami published that one so it's their say. However Konami is now all of sudden considering bringing it to the Wii U if they see demand, most likely Platinum had something to do with it since Konami hasn't brought a Metal Gear game to a Nintendo home console for a long time.
