Calling all Rya Hayabusa fans – The black-clad super-Ninja is coming to a screen near you soon!
Releasing on the PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch, the Master Collection bundles together the three games that marked Team Ninja as major players in the action hack and slash genre. If you have never attempted to complete one of these games, now is the chance.
The Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection includes:
- Ninja Gaiden Sigma
- Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
- Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge
In addition to the base games, they will also include most of the previously released DLC game modes and costumes in one epic collection.
Blending hard-as-nails gameplay with complex, in-depth fighting mechanics more akin to a fighting game than a typical hack-n-slash, you’ll need to master both offensive and defensive tactics to succeed.
“NINJA GAIDEN is one of the most important and monumental titles for the Team NINJA brand, but we haven’t been able to release the series title on current generation platforms, so I am very delighted to be able to release it in this format as a trilogy,” says Yosuke Hayashi, Chief Head of Team NINJA. “If you enjoy challenging action games, we hope you will give it a try.”
Adds Fumihiko Yasuda, Head of Team NINJA: “NINJA GAIDEN is the origin of Team NINJA’s action games, and I hope that not only fans of the series, but also fans of the Nioh series will play these games. I hope that the day will come soon when I can provide information about the next game in the NINJA GAIDEN series, which I’ve been continuously saying that I want to develop, but until then, please play as the ‘super ninja’ Ryu Hayabusa in the NINJA GAIDEN: Master Collection.”
If you read those quotes, you’ll have noticed that Fumihiko Yasuda all but confirmed Ninja Gaiden 4 is coming – very exciting!
In the meantime, you have plenty of time to warm up your thumbs and improve those reaction times, as its worldwide release is due on the 10th June 2021.
“To celebrate the reveal of NINJA GAIDEN: Master Collection, Team NINJA will also run a special collaboration with Nioh 2. The development team have created the “Dragon Ninja” skin, which players can use to transform themselves into Ryu Hayabusa, the protagonist of NINJA GAIDEN: Master Collection. Players who own Nioh 2 – The Complete Edition (PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, and Steam) or Nioh 2 (PS5 and PS4) can download this costume for use in-game starting on February 18th – with further details on this collaboration detailed on the official Nioh 2 website.”
