NINJA GAIDEN 3: Razor's Edge features a number of enhancements and added content to deepen the experience, arriving first on the Wii U version of the game.
Fast-paced and intense challenges are central to the NINJA GAIDEN experience. In each stage you'll need to defeat waves of enemies, making full use of your weapon and Ninpo arsenal in a barrage of combo attacks and deadly Ninja Skills earned as you progress.
Dismemberment has returned, allowing you to disable enemies by cutting off their arms and legs. This allows for new attack strategies, while requiring you to think fast when limbless foes come at you with desperate last-ditch attacks.
First on the Wii U version of this game is a robust character progression system called Ninja Skills, in which you earn Karma Points for defeating enemies. The more devastating your combos and attacks, the more Karma Points you earn.
Karma Points can be spent to learn new Ninja Skills, upgrade your weapons and Ninpo, increase your HP, and even unlock new costumes. You can easily access the Ninja Skills menu from your Wii U GamePad while playing to upgrade on the fly.
A variety of costumes are available for the different playable characters in the game. Unlock costumes by using Karma points earned through gameplay.
