Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor's Edge's new weapons, Ninpo and Ninja Trials detailed

The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge will include all-new weapons, Ninpo powers and 100 Ninja Trials, additions detailed today by developer Team Ninja and publisher Tecmo Koei.

Ninja Ryu Hayabusa will now be able to equip a pair of "slow but powerful Dual Swords" that deliver a powerful shock wave, a Lunar Staff that features a pair of ball-and-chain extensions and a Kusari-Gama, the sickle-chain weapon featured in previous Ninja Gaiden games. Ryu will also be able to dispatch enemies with new Ninpo, Piercing Void and Cicada Surge.

The female ninja of Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge will appear with new killing tools, including the Phantom Spear technique for Ayane, a naginata for Momiji and Mugen Tenshin attacks for Kasumi. Those new weapons and attacks can be seen in the gallery above.

Tecmo Koei boasts the 100 Ninja Trials — more than any other Ninja Gaiden game to date — included in the PS3 and Xbox 360 re-release of Razor's Edge will "pose a marathon challenge to even battle-hardened veterans."

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge will be released on April 2.
