Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor’s Edge Wii U Screens That Will Make You Buy It

Triverse writes, "Tecmo are a company that has proven they are not scared to reboot their original IP’s and try new things with them. Gamers have proven they will support the cooler stuff (how many Rygar games did we get in the last 15 years?). Here we have the third in the series of newer, 3D, Ninja Gaiden games (originally a scrolling arcade brawler that switched to side scrolling action on home consoles) and boy have Tecmo been working on improving this series (this series debuted on the Xbox awhile back and has continued to impress gamers)."

Lol....I think this game is trying too hard to sell sex.
lilbroRx  +   1119d ago
Just what one would expect from a "typical" American. Anything even remotely erotic or sensual is pornography.

Any game with a woman who has more than an A cup is sexist garbage that is just trying to sell sex. Getting a massage is having sex apparently.

The games must only promote violence and murder to be healthy, respectable and mature.

Any female human form that is not clothed like a nun is selling sex now.

the term 'sex sells' is not referring to the act of intercourse. It means that the erotic nature and sensuality of sex is what sells.

So now you understand, read his post again.

Here in America sex is one of the primary tools used to sell. Many people do not agree with the PC bs that you refer to and we try to stay away from it. However, what you are referring to is foisted upon us without our consent in many cases. Either way, your comment is a bit harsh for a response to such a simple statement.

As far as the game goes, yes, the sexual appeal is one of it's selling points. It may need it, because from what I can tell, it lacks the same magic it's amazing predecessors NGS 1 & 2 have. If i'm wrong please correct me.

"....That Will Make You Buy It"

at first I laughed but some of the screen caps are actually pretty cool. I doubt I'll be buying this game any time soon though :P

I think the OP is just trying to sell this post with sex. There's loads of action screenshots to choose from with blood and gore. But no, "I'll pick the one with ass to get more hea"

@ th3 chr0nic


Ontopic. I've bought several games in my life mainly due to my hunger for a piece of *ss. Nothing to be embarrassed about imo. It's nature doing it's thing.

Nowadays I live with my wife and our 3 kids and I still feel strongly drawn to these games.

Like Jon Lajoye says in his song "I gotta stop listening to my p***s. I would be a genious if I stopped listening to my p***s".

If anyone gets of on CGI and animated women then you need to get out more. Sell the game based on it being a good game nto sexual content when there are movies and websites with real people doing a better job lol.

Not all gamers are fat, ugly no life sods who sit home all day.
DivineAssault  +   1119d ago
Tho i agree with what your saying, some people arent fat ugly w no life on purpose pal.. Try being a bit more humble eh? Would u like it if u were stuck in that situation?

Seeing Ayane's titties realistically bounce around is awesome.

This game is REALLY GREAT. they fixed EVERYTHING from NG3 and turned the game frm a 4/10 to an 8/10 .

The story is still supid , but the gameplay is now awesome due to LOTS of blood , Awesome dismemberment and the new characters and levels and golden scarabs.

I would give this game an 8.5/10 and say it's a must buy launch title , if you have enough money to buy it. If you're young and don't have a lot of money then you're in no rush to buy it. If you have a lot of spare money then buy it and you will love it...
specsmatter  +   1119d ago
Sure they did. Wow im really surprised you said that lol Your fanboyism is the epitome of groupie struck. I have never seen you make one negative comment or agree to skepticism on the part of a wii u game or the wiiu itself and thats saddening.

Ive read re reviews and many gave it one point higher lol so it went from a 5 to a 6 on the wiiu and your boasting about this trash? Your one of the idiots that let devs eat yopur brain and go out and buy whatever Reggie or Iwata tell you to buy. Its very sick and saddening lol

Your the same person that told me all ports look and perform better on the wiiu then on ps3/xbox and i quickly shut you up with reviews of batman stating the opposite.

I love making you eat your words troll!!!!

Must buy launch game? lol hahahaha really

yeah musttttttt buy written all over it!!!! lol
exfatal  +   1119d ago
he might be a fanboy but ur def a hater, u went to personal attack his own opinion. and with a name like specs matter... i can see why ur such a sheep and hop on the Nintendo hate ban wagon. the wii U version was better and more challenging, and for a ninja gaiden game that's important, unlike the ps3/360 versions they went back to how it was suppose to be hard, bloody and fun. So yes he's right in a sense if you're looking for a great challenging game and have money for it, pick it up for sure, but if your tight or already played the ps3 version then it can wait.
AWBrawler  +   1119d ago
dude you just proved him right! according to your own link, NG3 is better on Wii U. 12 points better even
specsmatter  +   1118d ago
wow you guys really told me off lol


Yeah he really proved his point that this "this game is a must buy launch game". The avg ratings and some very low 6's really show this is a must buy. A must buy for fanboy fanatics that buy any crap.
Jadedz  +   1119d ago
A mature, decent looking, Wii U title
Isn't this the type of software the mature crowd (on N4G) want from Nintendo?
Redempteur  +   1119d ago
Yep but we need more games like that.
At least bayonneta 2 is onthe way.
Slapshot82  +   1119d ago
Bayonneta 2 is really THE hardcore title for the Wii U. Ninja Gaiden 3 was stripped of its backbone by Hayashi and even the "better" port on the Wii U can't replace the stripped gameplay engine that he decided that us 'hardcore Ninja Gaiden fans that have supported the team with our money for years' didn't want any more.

If you've not played the previous 3D Ninja Gaiden titles and enjoy NG3 - go pick up the other games. They are much better than this.

Also, if you've got a DS/3DS handy - grab Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Swords too. It's the perfect example of how you should blend a hardcore series with a more mainstream crowd - not Ninja Gaiden 3.
Redempteur  +   1118d ago
Thanks for the advice but i game on everything

NG : dragon sword is a fine game lacking in precision IMO.
It's ok but doesn't match NG2 or NG1 in battle segments
Nevers0ft  +   1119d ago
The game looks fairly pretty but have the problems from the 360 and PS3 versions been addressed? Things such as horrific camera and controls that make you feel like you've got a palsy.

Also... BEWBS!
Roccetarius  +   1119d ago
NG3 was only a demo release. It was indeed garbage compared to the previous games, so they added the things in the Wii U version.
specsmatter  +   1118d ago
Plz stop it game is garbage on all systems this itinerary also recieved 6's, 5's and has an average of a 7.
claud3  +   1119d ago
bull and what a load off crap
wishingW3L  +   1119d ago
nothing amazing about those screens.
MegaLagann  +   1119d ago
So I got Ninja Gaiden 3 at launch purely because i'm a NG fan and for launch hype and consider my impressed. The story is still shit, but if you play a Ninja Gaiden game for the story you're doing it wrong. Combat is amazing, much better than vanilla NG3, feels more like NG2. Steel on Bone acts as a counter move now and works well as that. Red is the colors you'll see the most because my god is this game bloody violent. I love doing obliteration techniques on enemies whom I've already decapitated, it just looks so silly and over the top. Also, the game is ball busting difficult. Almost to the point of being cheap. But it provides a nice challenge for those brave enough. Also, while the story mode is short, there's a lot of replay value going back to levels, grinding for karma to upgrade weapons, ninpo, get new abilities or costumes. Also, you can use Ayane, Momiji or Kasumi in any stage which adds some nice variety. And now for the negatives. THE. SLOWDOWN. I know i'm beating a dead horse here, but my god does this game have an inconsistent frame rate. In some stages like Day 2 the slowdown is almost nonexistent but in Day 8 it felt like I was running in slow motion. The enemy designs aren't the varied, the music for the most part was pretty bland (but I do like the main theme), the level design is pretty basic and some of the areas aren't really interesting (i'm looking at you Day 5, although you're boss is cool) and finally while the online is fun, no one is ever on. So I had my fun with this game, it's not perfect and it won't win any rewards but I don't need it to to have fun. The only thing truly bringing it down is the frame rate, which I hope Team Ninja fixes. I mean if Koei can fix the frame rate in Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper then TN can do it here. But until then I say if you can find the game for forty/thirty dollars try it out. Don't just listen to reviews, play the game and form your own opinion. Oh, and yes I did enjoy making the girl's breasts bounce with the controller, I have no regrets!
CrescentFang  +   1119d ago
I dunno if you know this, but vanila NG3 was ball bustingly difficult on Master Ninja or anything other than Hero or Normal.
It actually seems like I can't judge a game until I've played on higher difficulties to see how different it is. Still vanilla NG3 was a mess. Master Ninja was hard, but more unfair and cheap.
I've been watching NG veterans play Razor's Edge and it looks really fun. First game I will get when I get a Wii U
Skate-AK  +   1119d ago
I had super bad framerate drops that made the game close to unplayable on higher difficulties.
CrescentFang  +   1119d ago
@Skate-AK haha, that's true! Actually uninstalling the game helped it run a little better, but it wasn't too much of an improvement. I spent over 100 hours on NG3, but I never got the Platinum, it was way too hard (plus I needed a good and dedicated partner).
profgerbik  +   1119d ago
Why is every one tripping out over sex with this..? Jesus people have lost touch.. Just two pictures of a girl getting a massage.

I think the intention of this article was to show off how the game looked.

She is showing no cleavage during the massage hell not even her butt crack is actually showing other than the shape of it from a the towel, which you would see with any person.. What the fuck is wrong with you people?

You consider that selling sex? Even her damn ninja outfit is practically almost fully clothed.. I don't get where you see all this sex mongering has come from?

Definitely not this. I think the Wii U eventually getting it's own Porn distributor on their system is by far worse than this game could ever be but sure Ninja Gaiden is the icing on the cake..

I can't believe how much some of you are raging over something so simple, something that isn't even revealing what so ever.

There were definitely more "sexual" pics to pick from for the set but I went with ones that were more "tasteful".
MoveTheGlow  +   1119d ago
So, there's Ayane. Okay...

I fail to see how these screenshots show a complete overhaul of the gameplay in the game responsible for the Call Of Duty-ification of the Ninja Gaiden franchise.

"Gamers have proven they will support the cooler stuff (how many Rygar games did we get in the last 15 years?)"

Wow man, way to twist the knife. The Rygar reboot was half-baked - it was a nice predecessor to something like God of War, but it didn't really get what was awesome about Rygar - the exploration, traveling really high up in a level to visit some god or oracle, the sense of the unknown. So... pardon gamers if they didn't buy it in bulk.

I actually liked the Rygar reboot and was saddened to realize it was not going to be an ongoing series (or at least improved upon on another system). Half baked? Sure but it was still better than it could have turned out, though it had plenty of room for improvement (it didn't, as you mentioned, follow the old storyline that well).
MoveTheGlow  +   1118d ago
I totally agree - if you dug into it, it was nice, but that's it... you had to dig into it, and that premise isn't going to sell a ton.

I feel like the sequel to that game, were it sufficiently funded and given enough time, would have been amazing! But unfortunately, execs who could only see "Rygar did not equal money, therefore no more Rygar" shut that down.
triverse  +   1118d ago
@MoveTheGlow That is the bare bones of the situation for far too many games over the last 15 to 20 years. If it is not a million dollar earner, no more in that series.

It also is a shame that so many gamers have grown lazy and simply will not dig into a game anymore. Instant gratification is to blame for this, I think. Gamers want everything NOW. They don't want to invest in a game if it is not knock your socks off every step of the way.
ninjahunter  +   1119d ago
I wasn't particularly convinced, no offense but if i want sex appeal then there's hentai.

And whats with all these people going on about if its not a real life girl its pathetic or something. People have different opinions on life, some people want to be gangster football players who F beetches and make money, some people just want to have a job that pays the rent and supports their hobbies.

Im just saying that its really imature to judge people by what they like and it makes 'you' seem really insecure. No one cares what gets you off, at the end of the day they just want what does it for them.
Drainage  +   1119d ago
lol @ pictures/graphics selling me a game. This aint the ps3. Show me gameplay and ill buy your game
badvlad  +   1119d ago
it looks like ps2
younghavok  +   1119d ago
I didnt need sex to sell me this game. The gameplay videos I saw online did. The game is hard (if you play on hard, havent tried anything else yet) but addictive and fun. The karma system actually makes you want to play better so that you can upgrade your moves list and weapons. And the extra characters add a fair amount of replay value as does having all the stages open for them to strut their stuff on.

All in all its a good game and the pick up and play nature makes it a perfect compliment to one of the deeper games on the console
