At Tokyo Game Show, Ninja Gaiden developer Team Ninja promised free downloadable content for the Wii U version of Ninja Gaiden 3. Leading the free DLC offerings will be playable character Momiji, the shrine maiden who first appeared in Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword.
Momiji will be available as a free download in December, Nintendo says. She'll be playable in Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge in the game's Challenge Mode and Ninja Trials mode. First gameplay footage of Momiji slaying scores of enemies while wearing a variety of outfits can be seen in the trailer above.
At least one more playable character and new "Ninja Skills" will be available for free in a future downloadable update, Nintendo and Team Ninja promise.
Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge will be available at the Wii U launch in North America on Nov. 18.
