After seeing the leaked gameplay videos of NG3, I'm not sure if I like the future of the NG series.

Team Ninja Dog is ruining it.

The title of the press release doesn't seem to match the content.

Title: "Team NINJA in Development of Two New NINJA GAIDEN Games –

Okay. Makes sense.

Content: "TECMO KOEI America also announces today its plans to develop game software for Nintendo’s new console – Wii U™. For the new console, Wii U, TECMO KOEI America and Team NINJA will deliver a new title from the famed NINJA GAIDEN franchise, NINJA GAIDEN 3 Razor’s Edge (*working title)."

... so, they're going to release Ninja Gaiden 3 and another title called Ninja Gaiden 3 Subtitle, and these are two separate games? Errr.
 
But I thought the WiiU would only get ports from years ago.

It's probably like Sigma, but with more content.

If the Wii U game is called Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge, how can it be an entirely separate game from Ninja Gaiden 3 on PS3 and 360?

^^What Stump said, press release is totally incoherent

But Ninja Gaiden and Ninja Gaiden Sigma aren't on the same console, and they certainly weren't announced at the same time on the same console. I mean, if you're trying to tell me that they will release Ninja Gaiden 3 for PS3, 360, and WiiU... and then a few months later they're going to release Ninja Gaiden 3 with extra content for WiiU, that's... well, I don't know what it is, but it's certainly unprecedented.

Do I win a prize for talking about my penis on the Internet???
So Im guessing that demo of throwing shurikens with the Wii U controller will be used here...

So it'll be Ninja Gaiden Sigma 3. Wonder if it has anything to do with the speculated 3DS NG title hinted at last yr and will have some cross-platform elements.

Dunno. We'll probably find out tomorrow at the round table.

Yeah, that's what it seems like. A little ridiculous.

There's only one Ninja Gaiden WiiU

and then there's also

NINJA GAIDEN 3 Razor’s Edge for WiiU

Probably a version of Ninja Gaiden 3 with exclusive Wii U kunai and shuriken-throwing controls! Hence, "razor's edge."

I'm expecting a load of stuff like this in the next few weeks. Very few publishers will want to invest in exclusives on a new hardware that has a very uphill battle ahead of itself. We'll get a lot of "exclusive version that is actually an enhanced port but we'll try not to say it" PR pieces in the next weeks.

Maybe it's just TECMO? They considered Ninja Gaiden and Ninja Gaiden Sigma as two different games (marketing wise).

Okay, so the ambiguous syntax is meant to imply that there is a Ninja Gaiden 3 for PS3 and 360... and separate from that, a Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor's Edge for WiiU?

That makes more sense, but it still begs the question why you would announce a game and in the same press release announce "and if you wait a few months, we'll be releasing a better version with different stuff".

Perhaps Nintendo paid Tecmo to do an exclusive content version in conjunction with the new controller?

Yes. You should edit the title Stumpokapow because it's only going to cause confusion

We have two confirmed, so far.
NG3 and AC.
Likely Darksiders 2. Maybe even BF3 will have exclusive content.

NG3 is probably aiming to release early in 2012 (or at least before the WiiU comes out). As to what this'll do to vanilla NG3 sales... well, this is Tecmo-Koei.
 
Thats how I see it:
Ninja Gaiden 3 from Nintendo Press Conference (multiplatform)
Ninja Gaiden ??? from PR (Wii U exclusive)

All the footage shown during the reel was only of Ninja Gaiden 3 (360/PS3 footage) right?
Can't remember if there was a subtitle or not.

Agree with the grammar context whizzes, the reading of the title is a mistake and there's only one Wii U game.

That said, what I'd love to see is a downloadable HD remake of NG 1-3, with some options and patches (maybe an easier mode that fix some of the evil spawning?) as well as graphics redone ala DKC Returns or Bloodrayne Betrayal.

No mention of the 3DS game that was in the title slate from last year? I don't know if a NG:Dragon Sword 2 could be doable like it was since Book Mode isn't as readily an option with the 3DS's screen and the 2D screen would NOT be the ideal way to see most of this game, but that DS game was a lot of fun and if the 3DS game is anything like it then I'm in.
 
Sounds like it's a spin-off, maybe with another character instead of Ryu? Would they really be working on two separate HD NG games?
