Updated: Nintendo Australia has confirmed that Razor’s Edge will only be released on the eShop in Australia.
This weekend will finally see the release of Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge on the Wii U in Australia. The games listing on the Wii U eShop has updated with the release date for this Saturday the 11th of May. It also looks like the game may be an eShop only release as stores we’ve spoken too haven’t received any stock of the title yet. It is priced at $79.95 on the eShop.
Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge was the first game in Australia to be rated R18+ all the way back on January 11th. It will be released exactly 5 months after its classification and since then at least 10 other games have been classified R18+ and about half of them have actually been released.
Not only that, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 was announced and released in the time between the Wii U console launch and now. The Vita also got a R18+ rated Ninja Gaiden game. A couple of weeks ago of the Wii U was updated with the ability to filter out R18+ games on its parental controls, thus finally clearing the way for the games release.
Anyone still keen to pick this one up on the eShop this Saturday?
