Tecmo Koei has released the launch trailer for Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus (alternately Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2+, or Ninja Gaiden Σ2+). The trailer gives viewers a sense of the game’s story, along with a lot of gameplay. It also shows off some of the game’s new features, such as “Tag Missions,” in which the player switches between two characters in real time while the other is controlled by AI.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus is a port of the 2009 PlayStation 3 title, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, which is itself a port of 2008’s Ninja Gaiden 2 for the Xbox 360. It includes a number of enhancements, such as “Ninja Race Mode” in which players race through courses as quickly as possible, killing enemies along the way, as well as the previously mentioned Tag Missions. Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus also features a number of control enhancements to take advantage of the PS Vita’s touch screen and rear touch-pad. It also includes “Hero Mode,” akin to an easy difficulty that powers up the player’s character when health is low. Those who pre-ordered the game will be able to download additional costumes for some of the characters.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus launches today in North America, on February 28th in Japan, and on March 1st in Europe for the PS Vita.

So, are any Ninja Gaiden fans out there planning to pick this one up? Or do you already have it? Let us know in the comments.

About Devin Kotani

Devin is a Canadian, and as such, plays hockey (no he doesn’t) and drinks maple syrup (not really) while riding a wild moose (he’s never seen a moose). When he’s not perpetuating cultural stereotypes, he’s playing videogames, which has been, on occasion, very bad for his mental health, problems with which have plagued him for years. Now, at 20, he’s getting his mental health issues under control, and he’s trying to decide what to do with his life. He’s currently debating between journalism and trying his hand at the dramatic arts.
