Ninja Gaiden 3 is the third game of Ninja Gaiden.It has a cool name:"忍者龙剑外传" .Ninja Gaiden 3 is different with Ninja Gaiden and Ninja Gaiden 2.In this game,Ninja does not fight with demon but fights with man.This game tells us:we need peace.


First,we can attack twice in 18 frame ordinarily.But it's two slow.We can attack once and junp ,then we can attack twice.So we can finish two attack in 4-5 frame. Second,if you use back jump,please try press "A" quickly,it can help you movie more long. Third,some place,we can walk in the wall(for example in the stage two).There seems to be no useful bug in Ninja Gaiden 3.


I finish 267 frame improvment on basic of TheAxeMan.First thank TheAxeMan's run.
I have done two improvment besides details.
First:Climb.We know if Ninja is on the left od wall, we should press"left+A,right,right,right",then "left+A,right,right,right".Its period is four frame.But if we take advantage of back jumping with "A",we can reduce period.We can press"left+A,right,right+A,left+A,right,right+A",then tts period is three frame.
Second: Manipulates luck.Yes.Ninja Gaiden 3 is a game with much randomness.The coordinate of enemy is different each time.So I can let enemy appear on the place which I want by taking advantage of Manipulates luck even I will waste 1-2 frame,because I can save more frame.
