Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge
Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge Listed By Japanese Retailer For Xbox 360

With Resident Evil: Revelations coming to consoles in May and Castlevania: Mirror of Fate HD a future possibility, it seems that conversions of Nintendo exclusives might be all the rage at the moment, especially if a listing from a Japanese retailer for Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge for Xbox 360 and PS3 is to be believed.

The Wii U exclusive game could be on the cards if the listing in question proves to be accurate, bringing its new features to Ninja Gaiden 3, which originally launched on Xbox 360 and PS3 back in March of last year.

Razor's Edge adds new weapons and additional playable characters to Ninja Gaiden 3, including Ayane, Kasumi and Momiji. The Japanese retail listing has Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge pegged for an April 4th release date, but until an official announcement comes from Tecmo Koei, we'd file this one firmly as a rumour for now.

Rakuten are usually very accurate so I'd take this as being extremely likely!

Yeah, So I bought NG3 Collector's edition last spring, played it. Its passable for a dier hard fan... but truthfully crap. Then saw The WiiU 'exclusive' Raxor's Edge version, bought a Wii U just for that. & now They are bringing it back out on the 360!

I could have save a fortune! Anyone wanna buy a Wii U... me give you good price long time!

I will have to play it on the 360 as the pad layout is hardwired into my subconscious... plus I love cheevos... plus getting the Wii U to speak to the router to get online to get the free DLC is a bane!

Didn't enjoy Gaiden 3 that much compared with 2. Does anyone know if it has any extra features other than playable characters? Really miss chopping limbs off from 2 :-/

Having briefly played the Wii U version, it is better, but by how much? That's down to each individual I guess.

You now have an upgrade system where you use 'points' to unlock new skills... I noticed that the Flying Swallow & Guillotine Throw are back in there as unlockables:) Ninpo is chosen & upgraded like NG2, & some annoying whiny soldier lyrics have been removed. De-limbing is back too:) I will play it again on 360 if it comes out. Defo improvement.

Looking forward to getting my hands on Momiji & Ayane too.

Nintendo to save Platinum Games's franchise. I do look forward Bayonetta 2 lots for Wii U. Now I did bought and played NG 3 Razor's Edge last month and it is much better then crap NG 3 in 2012 with lots of improved and add lots of stuffs so I will get NG 3 RE again for achievements if release it in WESTERN of Earth. :D

But maybe WEST is only for Wii U since publisher by Nintendo and in EAST (Japanese only) will have multiformats since publisher by Tecmo Koei. So maybe we never see this game in WEST for Xbox 360 and PS3 since publisher by Nintendo in WEST for Wii U. :)

Sorry my above comment is mistake: I edit now.

#7 Maybe but I don't think since Nintendo owned Bayonetta 2 now with Platinum Games so Nintendo is to saved Platinum Games's franchise since no one publishers is in interested to publising this game so Nintendo is rescue Franchise anyway. I do look forward Bayonetta 2 lots for Wii U. Now I did bought and played NG 3 Razor's Edge last month and it is much better then crap NG 3 in 2012 with lots of improved and add lots of stuffs so I will get NG 3 RE again for achievements if release it in WESTERN of Earth. :D

Would love to play it. It looks million times better then NG 3.

Because has limb dismemberment.
also has 6 weapons and a lot more Ninpos.

Upgrades including new moves, and health upgrads.

Revamped Difficulty and Areas.

Bosses have health bars

New Playable Chracter

So it's definitely worth checking out. If you liked the original but were disappointed but if you hated it don't bother

If this were to come out on 360, it would have to be budget priced for me to even consider it.

With that said, it'd still be kinda unlikely that I'd pick it up.

Apparently this was actually confirmed as being real in the latest issue of Famitsu (Japanese gaming magazine for those who don't know)

However - like someone pointed out - I doubt we will be seeing this outside of Japan, as Nintendo published this game outside of Japan. Who knows though, maybe we'll get a new port of a port of a port.

This better be true, and be available to more countries than just Japan... I was a buyer of the collector's edition cause I had faith in Hayashi, boy was that faith misplaced, especially when he pulled this and made RE an exclusive for Wii-U, I felt like I spent 100 bucks on a beta...

If this version of the game is released on 360, I'll give it one more shot...

Yep, seems as though this is indeed true, and it seems as though it is not going to be Japan exclusive because that was not mentioned. Source right here on TECMO Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151336327931785.460574.109196331784&type=1

I would be willing to try Ninja Gaiden 3 again if this is true.

Ninja Gaiden 3 was a huge piece of shit and this is coming from a fan who played all the ones before it. I was severely let down and I'm not sure if this or anything in the future will want me to come to the franchise.

@21 That's what she said

I hate games that come out with a 1.1 versions. Seriously. I wish they'd nail it the first time around. Just cause they throw in a bunch of new features doesn't make it a completely new game. Yet they expect a full price. Might pick it up when price drops.
