Time for more fast-paced, high-quality slicing action.
According to Siliconera citing Famitsu, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge will be coming to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. We're not sure when it'll come stateside, but it popped up on a Japanese retailer's database with a release date of April 4.
Razor's Edge was initially announced as a Wii U exclusive (Nintendo even published the title in North America and Europe), but it seems the developers want to reach a bigger audience. Featuring revised enemy AI and fewer quick time events, the game also boasts new playable characters in the appealing forms of Dead or Alive 's Ayane and Kasumi. Just remember that the PS3 and 360 versions will be ports of the Wii U versions, so it'll be interesting to see how they come out. Gonna try it?
Personally, I say we need to see an entirely new Ninja Gaiden effort from Team Ninja and Tecmo. They've been doing these remakes and pseudo-sequels for most of the generation, so if there's one franchise that needs a reboot, I'd say this one qualifies.
