Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus out today in US and March 1st in UK

Tecmo Koei are happy to announce that the once PlayStation 3 exclusive Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 is now available this week in North America and Europe for the PlayStation Vita.

The Plus in the title refers to the new content that is included in the Vita release. A new mode called “Ninja Race” has players tackling a speed course filled with plenty of adversaries. Also included are Tag missions, new costumes, new weapons to decimate your foes with and an intuitive control system that uses the touch screen of the Vita. New players will appreciate the inclusion of “Hero mode”, which automatically helps players when their health gets low.

NINJA GAIDEN SIGMA 2 PLUS takes everything gamers love about the Ninja Gaiden franchise and packs it into a spectacular new handheld adventure for the PlayStation Vita. New modes like the frantic Ninja Race and the single player co-op Tag Mission keep the game fresh, the roster of player characters and enemies is unmatched, and the action lights up the screen with phenomenal visuals that rival anything you’d see on console.
