Watch: Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge Epic Launch Trailer

As the original release was met poorly, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge has a lot of work to do. Not only does it need to make good use of the Wii U’s controller functionality, but has to convince gamers burnt by the 360/PS3 versions to pick up the game again. Luckily, early buzz has been positive and today’s launch trailer does a lot to affirm that this won’t be a simple rehash. The trailer, which is more epic than you’d ever expect a Ninja Gaiden one to be, shows off the plot as well as snippets of gameplay exclusive to the Wii version. The visuals look fantastic and Razor’s Edge could very well prove an early benchmark of the Wii U’s graphical capablities.
