“Ninja Gaiden: Razer’s Edge” on Wii U has been touted as the definitive version of “Ninja Gaiden III“, but it seems Team Ninja isn’t finished just yet. Today, during the North American Nintendo Direct broadcast, Nintendo revealed that two new characters are “coming soon” via a free download, one of whom you may recognize from an entirely separate franchise.
Nintendo started the Ninja Gaiden: Razor’s Edge talk by highlighting many of new features the game brings to the table, but things got interesting when they started tling about the game’s characters. Momiji, who’s appeared in previous Ninja Gaiden titles, is the first downloadable character we’ll see, but the second DLC character joining the ranks just so happens to be Kasumi from the the Dead or Alive series.
Much like the current option of playing through the game as either Ayane or Ryu, players will also be able to do so with the two new characters. Unfortunately, Nintendo did not announce a specific release date for the additional content, but you can check out a quick trailer below to see Moiji slay a some baddies.
