Limb Lopping Returns to Ninja Gaiden on the Wii U

Have you been looking at the Wii U line-up and thinking there aren’t enough titles that let you hack people’s limbs off? Well, you might have a few issues, but at least Tecmo Koei want to indulge you, as Ninja Gaiden Sigma 3: Razor’s Edge brings back the butchery after the PS3/360 versions were criticised for toning down the violence. As well as being a bit rubbish.

Ryu will be getting a host of new weapons in the Wii U version including a heavy staff and a demented new fangled weapon that from what we can tell (it moves very fast) is something sharp and nasty on the end of a chain. Ayane makes an appearance too as an exclusive playable character with her own missions.

Despite the game being a launch title in the states, we won’t be seeing it until January 11th. Looks like we’ll have to settle for Zombi U for our launch day bloodletting. Check out the new trailer for Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge after the break.

What a jip. Well to be honest I'm not that bothered seeing as there was much more wrong with it than just a lack of dismemberment. Still can't believe they ruined one of my favourite game series'.

Oh and that weapon you're describing sounds like the Kusarigama. That's a proper ninja weapon.
