PS3's Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 enhanced for PS Vita.

Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja have shared the first screenshots of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus, due in Q1 2013 for PlayStation Vita.

The “ultimate” Ninja Gaiden, the game adds the following features:

  • Touch Action: Through the use of PS Vita’s front touch screen and rear touch panel, along with precise six-axis motion controls, players can now immerse themselves even deeper into the ultimate ninja experience.
  • “Hero” play-style: New and casual players can trigger powerful and exhilarating attacks and advance through the game. If selected, this play style activates automatically when the player is low on health.
  • Ninja Race: Players compete with enemies at a breakneck super-high speed to be the first to reach the end goal. Pick up items and cut down those who stand in your way to further enhance your speed and attack power.
  • Tag Mission: Allows players to switch between their two favorite ninjas (including Ayane, Rachel, and Momiji in new costumes) in real-time while defending the AI-controlled partner. Players can choose the character best suited to each situation for a more exciting and personalized action game experience.

    Am I imagining things or did Team Ninja restore NG II’s original gore (360 version). I am certain the PS3 version replaced blood with that purple mist. This looks dangerously close to the OTT gory 360 version =)

    How I’d love to see an original title by Team Ninja developed exclusively for Vita, as it seems they have gotten to grips with the hardware.

      yes you re right i remember not buying the ps3 version because of this
      glad its gonna be uncut for my vita now :D

        Well, it’s my impression, I have no solid proof besides those screenshots. As they’re probably not expecting the port to set the tills alight I guess TN are swallowing the CERO Z pill (NGS2 was D, while NG2 on 360 was Z). I’m cool with that =)

    Looking good.

    It’s nice but it’s still an old game. Nothings still motivated me to get a Vita yet. Even 3DS.

    Note to Team Ninja: If you’re going to brag about new costumes, it might actually be productive to show said new costumes in the screenshots you release.

    These are the vita screenshots, right? Not console or bullshots? If so, they look amazing.

    yay they brought back blood in Sigma 2 Plus Vita :D

    oh my Momiji :D

    funny how i think they could have the Sigma model(artstyle and body wise) for Dead or Alive 5(but it’s an awesome artstyle though)

    i do miss Ayane’s gigantic flower :)

    Momiji and Rachel for Dead or Alive 5+ please!!!
