Tecmo Koei Europe has today launched Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus, the highly anticipated sequel to its hit PlayStation Vita launch title, available at retailers across Europe as well as via the PlayStation Store for digital download now. Faster, bloodier, and more beautiful than ever, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus takes the legendary action game to new heights with new gameplay modes and a star-studded cast headlined by ninja Ryu Hayabusa.
Developed by Team NINJA, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus comes to PlayStation Vita with a host of new features and plenty of blood. In the videogame, Ryu, the iconic ninja of the Ninja Gaiden franchise, returns to the Sigma series to prevent the resurrection of the evil Archfiend by hunting down the Demon Statue stolen by the wicked Black Spider Ninja Clan. Players will battle from Tokyo to New York as Ryu encounters vicious enemies and acquires an extensive assortment of ninja weaponry along the way.
Accompanying Ryu on his quest are fan favourites Momiji, Ayane, Rachel, and Sonia. Ryu will need their support and their specialised weapons to overcome an elite alliance of enemies and bosses including Elizébet, Ruler of Blood, the evil priest Dagra Dai, the Four Greater Fiend Lords, the fearsome Black Dragon, and Ryu’s longtime nemesis Genshin.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus takes everything gamers love about the Ninja Gaiden franchise and packs in new gameplay modes like the frantic Ninja Race and the Tag Mission keep the videogame fresh, the inclusion of Hero mode, which automatically helps players when their health gets low, and an array of deadly weapons such as Ryu’s legendary Dragon Sword, the massive (and bloodthirsty) sword known as Emma’s Fang, the nunchuck-like Vigoorian Flail, Ayane’s Fuma Kodachi short swords and Rachel’s Inferno Hammer. Last but not least, the game features costumes from the PlayStation 3 version of the videogame as well as new outfits including a stunning display of costumes for the female warriors.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus is available for PlayStation Vita from today as both a downloadable title and a retail product. The official launch trailer for Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus follows below and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest releases from Tecmo Koei Europe.
