The February 2021 Nintendo Direct revealed Ninja Gaiden Master Collection, which will come to the Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC on June 10, 2021.

The compilation will include the three Ninja Gaiden Σ games, which rebooted the original 1988-1991 NES trilogy. Ninja Gaiden Sigma was a 2007 PlayStation 3 remake of Xbox’s Ninja Gaiden Black. Similarly, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 was a 2009 PS3 enhanced port of the original sequel that appeared on the Xbox 360. Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge was an enhanced version of the third game that was first released on Wii U in 2012. It was also brought over to the PS3 and Xbox 360 in April 2013.

We previously learned about the these Ninja Gaiden ports in September 2020. The Hong Kong-based publisher Game Source Entertainment briefly put up listings for Ninja Gaiden Sigma Trilogy. It said it would come to not only Nintendo Switch, but also PlayStation 4 in March 2021. The listings were removed shortly after, but not before the internet saw them. All DLC will be included in the Ninja Gaiden Master Collection.

This announcement also goes along with the promise made by Fumihiko Yasuda, the current leader of Team Ninja. In his New Year aspirations, Yasuda teased that there would be multiple reveals related to the brand in 2021 after the studio wrapped up development on Nioh 2.

Ninja Gaiden Master Collection will be available on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC on June 10, 2021.
