Ninja Gaiden Razor's Edge to be a Wii U launch game

Tecmo Koei are aiming for launch

Ninja Gaiden: Razor's Edge will be a Wii U launch game. That's the word from publisher Tecmo-Koei who want to show the company's support for Nintendo's new console by releasing Ninja Gaiden on day one when Wii U is released in 2012.

Ninja Gaiden Razor's Edge is the second game that has been confirmed for the Wii U launch. Earlier this year, THQ's Danny Bilson said that THQ were planning on making Darksiders 2 a Wii U launch game and the company also wants to release two more Wii U launch games.

Very little is known about Team Ninja's action game but we do know that Ninja Gaiden: Razor's Edge will use touchscreen controls.

"We're looking forward to merging Ninja Gaiden 3 gameplay and visuals with Dragon Sword touch commands," said Team Ninja localisation manager Peter Garza earlier this year.

What other games would like to join Ninja Gaiden: Razor's Edge and Darksiders 2 on the launch line-up?

    Ninja Gaiden Instant purchase for me! The first two were epic, really enjoyed them. Hopefully we will get a new trailer sometime soon :)

    This is promising to be a very good launch. What with this and Darksiders 2 and probably Pikmin 3 all it needs is a Mario or Metroid game in my opinion.

    I think that one of the other launch games THQ is planning to release is Saints Row: The Third

    Have to be honest I am not a fan of this series but I do know lots of people enjoy these games ( i don't think their rubbish just not my type of game) But this is a welcome addition to the Wii-U launch and will help to sell the sysytem no doubts.
