Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection Announced (VIDEO)
For over 30 years, the Ninja Gaiden franchise has been a fan-favorite in the action hack-and-slash genre, offering players plenty of opportunities to take down all of the baddies in their way. That said, thanks to the first Nintendo Direct in over 500 days, it has now been revealed that a collection of three entries will be launching on Nintendo Switch and other platforms.
During the recent Nintendo Direct, which showed off about 50 minutes of announcements, teases, and more, Koei Tecmo brought a new trailer to reveal Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection. Said collection includes three titles from the franchise: Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Sigma 2, and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge. In addition to the three titles, the classic costumes as well as DLC costumes will be included. Check out the trailer for yourself below:
Unfortunately, not everything from these three Ninja Gaiden titles will be making it into the Master Collection. Online multiplayer will not be available for the Tag Missions in Sigma 2, Razor’s Edge will not include the Clan Battle or Shadows of the World, and Ninja Trials will not feature online multiplayer. However, both Sigma 2 and Razor’s Edge will be available in Traditional Chinese.
Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection will be arriving on June 10th for Nintendo Switch, PC via Steam, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and new-gen consoles via backwards compatibility.
