Ryu Hayabusa is in The Grip of Murder, a terrible curse on his right arm that threatens to destroy him unless he finds a way to escape it. NINJA GAIDEN 3: Razor’s Edge brings the series’ trademark intensity and formidable challenge to Wii U, and has been expansively enhanced to improve upon the original game and satisfy the demands of NINJA GAIDEN fans.
Use all your skill and dexterity to survive a relentless onslaught of powerful opponents, now with improved artificial intelligence to offer an even fiercer challenge. As the battle rages in both new and familiar areas, employ returning techniques to obliterate your enemies, and witness animations that truly convey the heat of combat. Go into battle armed with an expanded arsenal of six weapons and three Ninpo types for Ryu, injecting even more variety and action into combat than ever before.
The female ninja Ayane enters the fray as a playable character, in both additional story mode chapters and the two-player online co-op mode. With her own unique weapons and Ninpo types, Ayane offers a radically different combat experience for players to master. The enthralling single-player action becomes even more fluid and engaging with the Wii U GamePad. Execute powerful Ninpo and quickly switch weapons with the controller’s touch screen, then check the combo chart to pick out the perfect attack combination to overcome your opponent’s defences, all without ever breaking away from the action.
Give yourself a fighting chance against the enemy assault with a new character progression system. Unlock new moves, upgrade weapons and Ninpo, and extend your character’s health points by spending the Karma points earned during gameplay. Join forces with a friend to face the challenge of the co-operative two-player online mode, now featuring Ryu and Ayane as playable characters, or fight for supremacy in intense eight-player online battles.
