Last month, we brought you the news about Team Ninja's newest game, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge. Today, we will continue to build on what you know with the announcement of the Smartglass functionality for Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge. When you load up the Smartglass App on your phone or tablet while you are playing the game, Smartglass will allow you to track your progress and your gameplay stats in real-time. Also, if you are having problems clearing a certain part of the game you can check out the Youtube functionality of the App to see how your friends or other Ninjas worldwide completed that part. Once you register and create your Dragon page, you will also be able to track your friends' progress and their gameplay stats as well. Take a look at the screenshots of the App below.
