"Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge was designed from the ground up to satisfy core action fans with a redesigned battle system, improved enemy AI, the greatly reduced interactive QTE scenes, and the return of dismemberment. Even with severed arms or legs, enemies will fight on and players will find they have to change attacks on the fly to win brutally tough battles—the challenge level leaves little room for error."
"The Ninja Skills systems lets players use Karma earned in combat to freely purchase weapon and Ninpo upgrades, feats, and costumes. Adding to the variety of gameplay, Kasumi, Ayane, and Momiji all join Hayabusa as playable characters. Ayane will get her own chapters in Story Mode while all three female characters can be played in the new Chapter Challenge mode and Ninja Trials co-op play with multiple costume options."
The online multiplayer in Ninja Gaiden 3 has also been drastically improved in Razor's Edge, as Team Ninja included not just all the previously released DLC, but also plenty of other customizations plus Clan Battle stages and even more Ninja Trials missions.
Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge hits the PS3 and Xbox 360 on April 2, in North America, and April 5, in Europe and the rest of the world.
