Tecmo Koei Unsheathes Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge for PS3

Posted by Sammy Barker

Just not into U

How could you Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge? You could have waited until after Valentine’s Day to end your cosy little exclusivity arrangement with the Wii U. You promised that you were going to kit Ayane out in that skimpy little outfit too. Hang your head in shame, you dirty little cheat.

Of course, Nintendo’s loss is PlayStation’s gain. Tecmo Koei has announced that the enhanced port of last year’s woeful action game is heading to the PS3 on 2nd April in North America and 5th April in Europe. The improved re-release features enhanced AI, fewer quick-time events, brand new characters, and lots more blood. It earned a 7/10 from our sister site, which is three points more than we awarded the original title. We're sure that the increase had absolutely nothing to do with this cut-scene. Nope.

I don't care for any version of this game, but I have a question.

How can Tecmo release this version on other systems when Nintendo helped them tune it up so much?

Because (thakfully) Nintendo didn't/couldn't snatched the IP in the process, like they did with Bayonetta and Monster Hunter. Tecmo is not like Capcom as well.

Well this game its not going to sell much everyone that wanted to play the game already got it really cheap for 12 bucks at amazon so only die hard fans may get it. (Expect it to sell between 40k-70k)

@MaxiM_PL and @ThatOneBlackGuy
Nintendo just gave ideas and offered the gamepad their intention wasn't taking the IP I suppose and they funded Bayonetta something Sony or Microsoft so it wouldn't even exist without Nintendo so please don't be mad. =3

Might as well as do a cross-buy relesae because the Vita could help make the game as true as possible to the Wii U release. I just wish the original NG 3 hadn't been such a disaster. I've heard from friends who've played both versions of NG 3 that eventhough Razor's Edge is a big improvement the game still pales in comparison to NG Sigma 1 and 2.

To be fair, other publishers had a chance to grab Bayonetta 2 and passed. The developers have said it themselves, if it wasn't for Nintendo this game wouldn't be coming out. Gotta give credit where it's due, at least Nintendo is taking a chance on what is a very niche title.
