Compared to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game, developer Team Ninja insists that Ninja Gaiden: Razor’s Edge for Wii U will be a much better title. The developer now claims that the Wii U version will be the definitive version for followers of the series, and will be the “hardcore fan package.” According to Team Ninja leader Yosuke Hayashi, hardcore aspects that were left out from the other versions will be included in the game for Wii U.
“We left out some of the things the series was well-known for. We did leave some of our fans out.”
“We had this opportunity to put those hardcore aspects back in [Wii U version]. It’s kind of the hardcore fan package of Ninja Gaiden 3.”
I really hope so. I want the game to be as hard and unfair as the old NES titles. That would really make me happy.
I was thinking the same thing. The old NES games were frustratingly, hairpullingly, throw your controller against the wall and smash it into pieces hard.
The sad thing is, I actually did threw my controller at the wall when I was playing it. Good thing was that it didn’t break lol
That’s because it’s made of Nintendium. The only plastic able to survive an air bombing attack!
There actually is a GameBoy in a museum somewhere that survived the Gulf War. There are pictures of it lol. You can still see Tetris on the screen.
Lol, so somebody was playing Tetris during the war? I guess that’s a good way to pass the time!
Its actually in Nintendo World in NYC and you can still see it continue to play tetris lol
Its at the Nintendo World Store in NYC !
Nintendium, haha…I think you may have to claim a new spot on the periodic table, my friend…I also think this material may be closely related to adamantium…
you drop a gameboy the floor breaks, but if you drop a vita, the screen breaks…..seems logic.
Watch those Wii U haters gonna be like I already have the game why would I buy it again.
Because then you can say ….well you have the version that sucks that’s why LOL!
The NES Ninja Gaiden games were masterpieces of difficulty. Insanely difficult, but overall well-made enough for you to know that your deaths are YOUR fault, not the game’s.
Hmmm… i will believe it when I see it. Plus they also need to improve the poor visuals that those who played the game complained about.
Awesome. Tried the first game. Hard as hell.
What Ninja Gaiden 3 had missing:
1. Moves list, and techniques that actually matter
2. More than one weapon, eliminating variety.
3. Ninpo (magic) attacks
4. The famed difficulty and challenge.
All of which defined Ninja Gaiden
What Razors Edge has:
All of the above, thanks to Nintendo pulblishing it and forcing it to be better.
Who said Nintendo only do baby games? ;)
after hearing all of this, i will buy ninja gaiden 3 for the wiiu. loved one and 2 and then…. yeah lol
Same. I loved NG Black, and 2, my brother had them on the 360, and then the ps3 got god awful ports that were just weird, like purple blood (whut) and the audio was just crap.
But this sound like the 1 and 2 that i loved, will probably be a day 1 purchase, depending on whats out
This was an excellent list and makes me extremely hopeful that Nintendo and Team Ninja succeed in this endeavor.
Too, it would be nice to have the combination of the two not immediately be associated w/ Metroid: Other M (which I’m at least okay with, still recognizing that it didn’t succeed in certain areas like controls and Samus’ divisive depiction).
Yeah. Nintendo and Ninja Gaiden and Tecmo have a good history, and Other M was a good experiment, but it serves better as a 2D side scrolling shooter, or a 1st person shooter, although wouldnt mind seeing a third person shooter Metroid. Similar in te way that Dead Space is, but more fluid and fast paced movement
Cool, now which excuses do our troll friends will give?
i’ll believez itz when i see itz
It better be good
i don’t know about this
some added levels maybe
Awesome! Makes me want to buy it.
They improved NG3 by remaking The Ancient Ship of Doom instead. :P
But seriously, I’m glad that Team Ninja and Nintendo are whipping this game into shape. I’ll be glad if they succeed and Razor’s Edge can be counted among the Wii U greats.
This idea of ‘hardcore’ gamers and fans is stupid. If the game is good, people will buy; doesn’t matter if it’s a bloody game or the most non-violent game ever.
Nintendo and third-party companies need to focus on making good games, not who or what crowd it could please. By doing that, you’re just attending to one group of people and limiting your choice to sell more.
In the case of Ninja Gaiden, though, what made the game hardcore wasn’t blood alone. It’s the punishing difficulty that an experienced player can manage to get through and achieve satisfaction from.
I think that has not really been there since the old NES days though :/ But I might be NES damaged so…
I’m definitel looking forward to this game. It’s got lots of blood, fast paced action and ninpo. Leave luck to heaven.
This sounds good but it would really be better if they included some ports of the 2 first games, same with AC series and so on…
Just some ports I don’t care if it’s identical to the original releases…
It’s like movies, I don’t want to see the final movie of a trilogy first when not having seen the first 2 movies…
But anything that boosts Wii U sales is also fine of course :)
The first 2 series has nothing to do with this one so don’t worry about it. You can play this without playing the first 2.
I am a big Ninja Gaiden fan. I have all six games. The three on the ness and the three on the ps3…. three was ok but wanted more. So i will definitely get this one too.
Get n or get OUT!!!!
Just like Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford says that Aliens: Colonial Marines for the Wii U is the DEFINITIVE VERSION of the game, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge for the Wii U is the DEFINITIVE version in the NG series! I’m sure it’s gonna be even better than the original NG3.
Well the original NG3 wasnt good, so, ya know haha this is the REAL NG3
This game sucks, period. Don’t fall for their PR bullshit. Get the originals instead.
Shut up, lame clone.
Fuck the original, Amir. That game has less blood and no decapitation. I prefer the definitive version instead of that half-assed game of Ninja Gaiden 3 on PS3/X360.
Once again, was not fucking talking about Gaiden 3. I’m talking about the first games when the series was reintroduced, IDIOT.
The original Ninja Gaiden 3 sucks. It’s way too easy and has no exploration or challenge.
I never said the original Gaiden 3 you stupid piece of shit.
I think Aeolus is talking about the NES originals if I’m not mistaken
And the first game when the series was revived.
will get it looks awesome…
This seems very promising.
Definitely better looking than my X360 version.
Gonna get this on Wii U. Looks light years better than the PS3/360 versions. I tried NG2 a little, but it was awesome. Hopefully this NG3 really lives up the the mastery of Itagaki’s NG. So sad for PS3 and 360 owners.
cue that this will be ported in 1..2..lol
just like how Sony Defense Force said that TGS and E3 was gonna show MH4 for Vita…lol
I have never heard or seen such a thing said.
From what i played that game was so freaking hard to even beat some of the enemies. I died over 12 times before i even manage to get to the midway point. So this is Hardcore at is best.
And this is where the U controller pro comes into action
You can use either the Wii U Game Pad or the Wii U Pro Controller when playing Razor’s Edge.
Correct. The gamepad does do much, but it does display the movelist, which is very useful in a game like this, when you need to know how to pull of different combos and advanced techniques

Who’s betting that a few months from now, even with this game on the system, trolls will still think there’s no core games on the system?
I bet a gold Mario coin that Asslus and that ass kisser anon would talk shit about the definitive Ninja Gaiden 3 title on the U.
