No, your eyes are not deceiving you. Yes, for free. In the U.S. Nintendo Direct video a couple of days ago, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge producer Yosuke Hayashi revealed that female ninja Momiji would become playable via a patch for the game. He states in the video, “If you can connect to the internet, you will be able to download her for free as part of a patch.” Seeming to almost start wrapping up his segment, he continues on with, “And that’s not all! Kasumi from the Dead of Alive series will also be a playable character in NG3:RE. She will be also available as a free update if you can connect online…”
I like seeing stuff like this. No word yet if they’ll be free forever or for a limited time. Either way, all you need is internet and you’re good to go. No cash required!
This time around, our Cameraman Gesfrid took a shot at playing a game for us. The game: Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge. Earlier this year, Ninja Gaiden 3 was lambasted by critcs and gamers for dumbing down the gameplay too much from its predecessor, creating a rather soulless and easy game. So with Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor’s Edge, Team Ninja is seeking to rectify this issue by bringing back what made the previous Ninja Gaiden’s fun and challenging: brutal difficulty and more weapons to wield. While we can speak for the weapons in this video, we can say something about the difficulty. Gesfrid was only the second person to beat the demo (after recording unfortunately), and it was in the afternoon. Everyone else just quit. Poor souls.
