Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3

Once touted as a Wii U exclusive, Tecmo Koei's Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge will slice its way onto both the Xbox and PlayStation as well, the publisher has confirmed.

Razor's Edge is a special edition of the original Ninja Gaiden 3 which graced Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 last March. As well as utilising the Wii U gamepad touch screen for new controls, Razor's Edge added a bunch of new stuff to the game. Among the additions were the Lunar Staff and Dual Katana weapons, new enemies and locations, improved AI, and the return of the Karma Counter from previous games. This allows players to upgrade their weapons, spells and character stats. An all new co-op multiplayer mode was also included.

All of these features will be retained as the game wall-jumps back onto the Xbox and PlayStation again, with the obvious exception of the touchscreen controls. There'll also be even more new material added to the game, in the shape of a new challenge mode called Ninja Trials, which features another 25 missions. The free character downloads from the Wii U are also included on the disc.

So while it's a little confusing to keep track of how this game has ping-ponged from one format to another and back again, it looks like this latest version will be one spectacularly stacked set. It's out for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on 5th March.
