Though Ryu Hayabusa and his reckless vendetta against all manner of attached limbs might be contrary to the more ... subtle
approaches employed by a traditional ninja, we don't recall anybody complaining too
vehemently while they were jumping off a wall and decapitating a hundred demonic spider things. According to a recent issue of Japanese mag Famitsu
, PlayStation 3 owners are set to get another taste of Team Ninja's action franchise, in the form of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
Much like the original Sigma
reworked the Xbox's Ninja Gaiden
(to former Team Ninja designer Tomonobu Itagaki's chagrin), Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
appears to be a modified version of the Xbox 360's Ninja Gaiden 2
. Images depict several familiar environments and characters, along with some new shots of Dead or Alive's Ayane
, who may be a playable character.
Expect more details to be formally announced over the next week
, including confirmation on whether this is "a loss of face for everyone involved
." We certainly expect monster faces to get the worst of it.
