Firstly, a full-featured demo is in the works for both Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, to be released before the game’s launch.

The full Xbox 360 version of Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge will support SmartGlass functionality for tablets and smartphones, a first for any Team Ninja game.  Fans will be  able to use the second screen provided with this technology to check updated personal records and achievements, and watch strategy videos based on their current in-game location to get help, as well as participating in the game’s community around the world.

Players will be able to boost the abilities of the game’s lead character, Ryu Hayabusa, by discovering Golden Scarabs which are hidden through the game world; these can be used to unlock new Ninpo or weapons.

Team Ninja also revealed new info on the unique fighting moves that Kasumi and Momiji will bring to Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge.

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge Kasumi

Kasumi, first seen in the Dead or Alive series, brings a variety of deadly attacks including her renowned Mugen Tenshin attacks that strike with deadly speed even if delivered from midair.  She can also unleash the slow but powerful Kunai Tempest, which creates a giant pinwheel shuriken, and Rending Wind, which channels her aura into a powerful beam of energy.

Momiji is no slouch, either. She can double-jump in midair with her unique Heavenbreaker to rain down attacks from high overhead, transform dancing leaves into a circle of flames with her Crimson Lotus, and unleash a powerful fireball with her Autumn Flame.
