The patch that enables you to play as Momiji is now available for the Wii U version of Ninja Gaiden 3, entitled Razor’s Edge. All you have to do is turn on your system and you will be prompted to download it. According to gamersxtreme, the total amount of time required to download and install the patch is around 6 minutes, so you won’t have to wait too long. Once installed you can select Momiji when in Chapter Challenge or Ninja Trials modes. As her you’ll have access to a unique set of powerful skills.
Momiji originally appeared in Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword on the Nintendo DS. Later on she went to make an appearance in Ninja Gaiden Sigma II and now she’s here, in Razor’s Edge.
According to the Ninja Gaiden Wikia, “along with her older sister Kureha, Momiji was raised to be a Dragon Shrine Maiden. She was tasked with keeping the ancient relics passed down the Hayabusa Village from the ancient Dragon Lineage and carrying out the Shrine Maiden’s rites and rituals to purify the world of malicious evil forces.
Among the relics that the Dragon Shrine Maidens were tasked with is safeguarding the Eye of the Dragon, a jewel said to contain the souls of the ancient Dragons. Unlike Kureha, Momiji was spared the fate of her older sister during the Dark Dragon Blade Incident.
At the time, Momiji was away from the village on an errand only to come back to a ruined village. She was devastated by the loss of the many lives especially her elder sister. Momiji began training under Ryu as a precaution and ended up becoming a skilled kunoichi along with her Shrine Maiden abilites for the sake of the Hayabusa Village. She supports and follows her master whenever he comes around.”
