Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Confirmed For PS3

If gamers were left wondering whether or not Ninja Gaiden 2 was coming to the PS3, well, wonder no more as it has just been confirmed that the game will indeed make an appearance on the PS3 in the form of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2.

Here's some of the translated text:

- It will be an upgraded version of Ninja Gaiden 2 (not a direct port)
- Set to release in autumn 2009
- The magazine will be reporting new elements in coming issues
- Producer and director: Yosuke Hayashi (From Sigma)
- Development: Team Ninja

New features in the PS3 version:
- New weapon - spiked hammer "Genma"
- New giant boss battles not in the 360 version
- New playable character - female ninja Ayane

This is exciting news indeed as many Ninja Gaiden fans have been craving some more sword slashing action from our friend Ryu. Also, those of you keen enough to bring up the point that the original NG2 was indeed published by Microsoft, this doesn't mean that they have full rights to the game as Team Ninja still owns the rights to the IP.


I hope I can finish this one without destroying one of my controllers out of pure frustration like I did with Sigma.

@TwIsTeD_MiNd: Maybe consider buying a replacement PS3 controller, perhaps one by MadCatz? Cheap, in build and in cost.

Looking forward to adding this to my collection.
