Team NINJA has today revealed new information for Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus, the highly anticipated sequel to its PlayStation Vita launch title. Faster, bloodier, and more beautiful than ever, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus brings the legendary action franchise to new heights with a deep cast, new costumes and weapons, and the introduction of the Hero play style that will give Ryu Hayabusa an edge in every fight.
The addition of the popular “Hero” play-style first featured in Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus gives every player a chance to play like a hero. With this mode selected, Hayabusa will get temporary advantages when his health runs low, including auto-block, auto-evade, increased damage, and a higher chance to dismember enemies, allowing gamers the chance to turn around a tough situation without interrupting the fast-paced action.
Facing an array of deadly bosses, Hayabusa will employ an arsenal of weapons. The legendary Dragon Sword is his most trusted weapon, providing deadly attacks and combos even at Level 1. The nunchuck-like Vigoorian Flail mercilessly assaults all enemies within reach, the Kusari-gama gives players a far-reaching weapon, and the Eclipse Scythe can slice through surrounding enemies with immense swings. The other playable characters are also well equipped, from Ayane’s Fuma Kodachi short swords to Momiji’s Heavenly Dragon Naginata and Rachel’s Inferno Hammer.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus will feature all the costumes from the PlayStation 3 version of the videogame as well as new outfits when it launches on 1st March 2013, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details from Tecmo Koei Europe.
