Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus Adds Hero Mode For Novice Ninjas

By Spencer . November 29, 2012 . 11:19pm

imageNinja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus has a mode for newbie ninjas. Select the "Hero" difficulty level and Ryu will auto guard when he’s in a pinch. The PlayStation Vita port also has touch screen throwing controls.


Team Ninja added new modes like Ninja Race (left) where you grab items to increase Ryu’s speed. Part of the strategy is chaining enemy kills to increase your attack power. A new tag mission mode lets players get more time with Rachel, Ayane, and Momiji. New character costumes were made for Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus too.

    I hope they ditched the touch screen and gyro gimmicks they had on Sigma 1. Also 30 fps is fine as long as it’s constant.

    • They did a decent job on their very first vita game, albeit a port. obviously I have much higher hopes for the quality of this one, buying it d1.

        Sigma ran like it’s PS3 counterpart with faster loading and no screen tearing. It’s slowdown was in all the exact same places. Sigma 2 ran much better on PS3 so I suspect this game will run better as well because it seems however they’re porting it is copying the exact performance.

        • The latest screens suggest that we’ll get the gory, uncensored Itagaki-approved version =)

            Just saw it, looks great. The only thing you can’t see in the images is if the body parts still disappear or if they fly around. Either way, more blood, bloody stumps and the removal of purple mist is a good thing.

      Who didn’t see this coming?

    • Elvick

      Guess I’ll wait to see if… sorry, *when* there’s a Sigma 3 Plus.

      Anyhoo, Sigma 2 Plus. Haven’t picked up Sigma 2 at all, so I’ll be getting this one assuming they localize it.

    When is someone at siliconera going to ask about the return of blood and gore missing from the ps3 version?

    • Rick R

      Seriously. I’m already sold on the game but I really want to know, none of these pictures show gore or purple mist.

  • Amine Hsu Nekuchan

    Hero is a funny way to spell Ninja Dog.
