Just watched the video review and wow... I'm excited. They actually FIXED everything. Granted it seems at the cost of some visual fidelity BUT the important thing is no frame rate complaints , the weapon upgrade system returns as well as ALL of Ryu's arsenal along with a Mission Mode and Ayane stages. The added gore and removal of the Steel & Bone mechanic is a nice change too. This looks to be the Ninja Gaiden 3 we SHOULD have had the first time. Shame its only on WiiU I'd really like if they released a discounted re-release on the other consoles.
(edit: could a mod attach this to the Razor's Edge forum I meant to do that but forgot. Thanks!)
