Other than the boring old master ninja Ryu Hayabusa, players can also control the purple-haired kunoichi Ayane in the Wii U exclusive Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge. Early next week, Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword‘s Momiji will join the fray via free DLC. She won’t be the last playable character added to the game, though. Tecmo Koei revealed on today’s Nintendo Direct broadcast that Dead or Alive‘s beautiful and innocent front woman Kasumi is also on her way to the game via free DLC.
Kasumi made a very brief appearance in Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, though she wasn’t playable. Her inclusion here is something of a surprise, as I was sure Rachel would be the next character revealed for the game. A release date was not given for Kasumi, but she will allegedly be released sometime soon. Let’s hope that Kasumi and all of Razor’s Edge‘s essential enhancements eventually make their way to the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Ninja Gaiden 3.
