Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge Confirmed for PS3 and Xbox 360

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor

Update: Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu has confirmed that Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge will definitely be released on PS3 and Xbox 360. These versions will contain a new mode called "Ninja Trials," consisting of 25 missions. Brand new costumes are being made, and the game will come with the free DLC that was released for the Wii U which includes Ayane, Momiji and Kasumi as playable characters.

Original Story: After a big overhaul to the original game, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge was released on Wii U as an exclusive title with a number of additions and improvements over the PS3 and Xbox 360 original.

Today, though, a Japanese retailer has posted a listing for Razor's Edge for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, implying the game will be released on those consoles, too. It's been previously hinted at in the past by Team Ninja that they wanted to bring the content of Razor's Edge to those that own the original version on PS3 and Xbox 360, so it doesn't really come as a surprise to see the game make its way over in some form.

The listing puts the PS3 and Xbox 360 version's release date at April 4, with a price of 7,140 yen in Japan.

Here we go again.......

There are no hardcore nor casual gamers, we are all simply just GAMERS

Exclusives have lost credibility on Nintendo platforms of late.

Given how badly the Wii U version has sold, I'm not at all surprised. What I was surprised about was how Dead or Alive: Dimensions never received a port elsewhere.

The sad thing is that the PS3/360 version will drop in price quicker and cheaper than the Wii U version will. I mean look at the price it's going for above at Amazon - £47.15. PS3/360 version will launch cheaper than that.

Yea, they seem to be holding their price at second-hand outlets...

This game barely counted as an exclusive, if at all.

What are the sales numbers and sales-to-consoles-sold ratio?

And the PS360 even gets more stuff! YAY!

PS3 and 360 owners should get this for free as DLC after the horrible job done on the main release.

Also, the Wii U version still has Off-TV play over the other two, and I would buy the Wii U SKU if I ever get the game.

Craaaaapppp.....it's crap like this that hurts Nintendo. Seriously this garbage will NEVER help Nintendo gain a larger fanbase. "Why should we buy a Nintendo system when EVERYTHING comes out on ps360"

This has to stop, SOny got our original 6 FFs but we have yet to get FF7-13 which is BULL. Next thing we know is this will give the Bayonetta 2 boycotters reason to hope for Bayo 2 jumping ship to ps360...frikkin A!!!

It is not wise to speak on subjects you do not know all facts about, nor is it smart to judge a game based on looks alone. PSN: Nintendo_Gamer 3DS: 4296-3029-7422

I wonder whether there are some kind of 'release' clause in exclusive deals these days, like you have to achieve a certain sales figure to retain exclusivity. We'll never know the "small print" I suppose.

Son of a mother ****ing ****... here we go again. *facepalm*

Chance favors the prepared mind.

We're also assuming there was an exclusivity deal in the first place. I would guess that there wasn't for this game since it basically had already came out on 360 and PS3. They probably appreciated the critical support and maybe even sales and saw that people liked it.
