Tecmo Koei has announced that it’s to release Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge on PS3 and Xbox 360.

Previously released as a launch window game for Wii U, the latest addition to the Team Ninja-developed action series will hit Sony’s and Microsoft’s consoles on April 2 in North America and April 5 in Europe. It’ll be available at retail and as a digital download.

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge is an enhanced port of the March 2012 PS3 and Xbox 360 release Ninja Gaiden 3. Trimmed down, polished and improved, it introduced new features including fresh weapons and playable characters. The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will also offer fresh costumes for all four playable characters.

We said in our Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge review for Wii U: “Ninja Gaiden: Razor’s Edge still remains the weakest title in the Ninja Gaiden trilogy, but additions like the Ayane missions and balancing tweaks make the game a decent, gloriously gory action title. Many of the flaws from the original Ninja Gaiden 3 have been addressed, and, at times, you’ll feel the same thrill you would from the first two titles in the series. But the weak story, repeat enemies, and frame-rate issues still hold the bloody title back from the greatness of its prestigious pedigree.”

    Wait, so its a port of a port. Ah man, nothing new? No new weapons(and I mean new original weapons not the ones from NGS2) or extra chapters to make the plot slightly better, or kasumi/momiji chapters? Sad sad news.

    Great idea. But will this cause a divide in the people who bought Ninja Gaiden 3 when it launched.
