View Full Version : Ninja Gaiden 2 Is Coming To PS3

Ninja Gaiden is making the trip to the PlayStation 3 again. It's got the "Sigma" in the middle of the name, but Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 is a port of Ninja Gaiden 2 that promises a number of new features.

First shown in that usual source for Japanese gaming information, Famitsu, Sigma 2 features as perhaps its biggest new element, playable Ayane. While the purple-haired "kunoichi" female ninja from Dead or Alive has always been a major part of the Ninja Gaiden story, she'll be playable in Sigma 2, and promises a completely different play feel from Ryu Hayabusa. The magazine shows Ayane making use of a dual sword, and teaming up with Ryu for what appears to be a combination attack of some form.

Other "big" updates include the presence of new enemies in some stages. The magazine introduces one such enemy, a giant Buddha. It also appears that the Statue of Liberty from the 360 version will be appearing in enemy form.

New weapons are on the way as well. The magazine introduces the new Hasaiga Enma, a massive weapon that appears to be taller than Ryu himself! It's unclear if this is the only new weapon, or if PS3 owners can look forward to more.

A bit more mysterious at present is some supposed PlayStation Network support. The magazine does not indicate what form this will take.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 is being developed by Team Ninja, with production and direction by the original Sigma's Yosuke Hayashi. Japan will get the game some time this fall.

An official site for the title will open up on the 25th, suggesting that this is probably the game Tecmo America has been teasing about for an unveiling on the 24th.

i loved this game on the 360. lol itagaki got canned a while back.

i remember he said a while back that he would only make games only for the 360 since it was the most powerful (at the time)

This is great. I loved the first NG and was the main reason I got the first XB. I was gonna get a 360 for NG2 but now I don't!
