- 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's biggest new feature is making Ayane playable. 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 gameplay experience 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 perhaps 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 just beat the first Ninja Gaiden sigma for the second time, didnīt think this would get ported to the Ps3. I canīt wait.
