Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus Slices Onto the Vita Feb. 26th
Team Ninja has just announced Ryu Hayabusa will take his talents on the go when Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus arrives on the PlayStation Vita on Feb. 26.
A port of the PlayStation 3 title Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, itself a remake of the 2008 Xbox 360 title Ninja Gaiden 2, will be making its way to the PlayStation Vita early next year. The latest iteration of the sequel will include new features such as Ninja Race, where players will race enemies while fending them off to earn kill streaks. There will also be Vita-specific touch controls for enabling Hero mode, which will make it, "easier for even new and casual players to use powerful and exhilarating attacks and advance through the game."
Additionally, NGS2+ will include four playable characters, adding three females (Ayane, Rachel, and Momiji), to the fray. Players will be able to instantly swap between Ryu and any of the ladies in the new Tag Missions, while the AI takes over control of the companion character. All of the women in the game will also get new costumes on the Vita, which should entice a few more fans to replay the game yet again.
