Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus Vita Trailer, Modes & Details

PR stuff….

 

Stunning graphics, new modes, more blood…

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus brings the most intense, action-packed ninja adventure to PS Vita with stunning graphics, new modes, and plenty of blood. In the game, iconic super ninja Ryu Hayabusa 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 while building an awesome arsenal of ninja weaponry. The action lights up the Vita’s OLED screen with upgraded graphics and the game features an all-star cast featuring signature characters from previous installments.

An intuitive control system uses the front and rear touch screens and motion controls of the PS Vita to give players full control and the powerful “Hero” play style automatically engages when the player is low on health.

 

Ninja Race

In the all new “Ninja Race” mode, a slow ninja is a dead ninja as players race through dynamic courses to beat the clock. After choosing a character, level, and costume, players can strategically choose to dash through the course or viciously kill as many enemies as possible to earn boosts and points.

The mode’s Combo Kill counter increases as foes are dispatched in sequence – the higher the counter, the more damage is dealt as long as the gauge stays filled. Three special essences, exclusive to the Ninja Race mode, boost the player’s chance of a successful mission: Green Essence adds time to the clock, White Essence boosts the Combo Kill counter for added damage, and Purple Essence grants Ninja Speed.

Tag Missions

“Tag Missions” provides an exciting new way to combine the complementary strengths of any two characters. Players can switch between team members in real time as they try to complete challenges, with the other team member under AI control.


With each fighter having different strengths and weaknesses, players can strategically tag back and forth when facing different opponents and situations by pressing down on the directional pad.


Weapon upgrades

Ryu Hayabusa’s attacks can be enhanced with powerful weapons including “Emma’s Fang”, a massive sword that can decimate foes with slow but powerful swings. Legendary tales say the fearsome blade grows even stronger when it becomes bloodied. Worn on the hands and feet, “Falcon’s Talons” can quickly cut enemies to pieces with special attacks including the Izuna Drop and the sliding, leg-cutting Thunderous Attack.


Steel-reinforced hardwood “Tonfas”, which can be swung from both hands to brutally crush enemies with their special Heavenly Justice combo, provide another option for mass destruction.

 


More costumes

Last but not least, those who pre-order Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus will receive DLC including unique, limited edition costumes for the female warriors Ayane, Rachel, and Momiji. Ranging from Ayane’s light armor to Rachel’s seductively spiky dress revealing her demon blood, the costumes are designed for both action and style.

  1. Ok the game is great but as a port it could have been cleaner graphically. It has is weird dynamic resolution that gets worse looking when shit gets going. (Edit: camera speed fix is below that helps alot) i think the issues are minor but could be fixed with a patch(hopefully)The game is fun as hell though but thats mostly due to the original design with this sequel being more action focused. Both this and the first for vita are very different. The first is more of an adventure game then action and this is more action then anything. Both great. Scat you should play part 1 first on an easy mode cuz it gets hard but the combat in part one is prep for the combat heavy second game.

    Sigma 1
    gamma1.1 brightness 0.0 contrast 1.1

    Sigma 2
    setting all camera speeds at max fixes framerate issues

    also set screen to: gamma 1.50 brightness -5.00 contrast 1.50

    It will look much better with these settings.

    • Yeah playing Metal Gear Rising made me want to suck at more action games. I’ll try them settings out. I find he controls weird in the first game like there is no 360º control of him. I feel like im controlling him with the DPad instead of analogue. I dunno.

      Looking forward to checking out part two though. Never played it.

  2. So I go in gamestop (dont ask me why) to buy this shi on my lunch break and they try to sell me an opened copy with stickers all over it. I was like WTF. Im not buying an open game at brand new game prices and after an exchange of words walked right out that bitch! lol

    I dont know why I ever go there.I swear its like consistent disappointment. I just ordered it on amazon with overnight shipping for the same fucking price.

    • Damn man, now you’ve got me wanting to buy this and 3 Razor’s Edge on Wii U =P Still got to get through the first one though so I’m good for now. Looks amazing though =/

    • When I saw this game confirmed I was like….

      The 360 version with gore like this release was my fav game that year it was released and I always hoped vita would have this caliber of release. Only action game fans can answer this true call of the Ninja. lol
