Fans of tough-as-nails action games will be happy to hear that Koei Tecmo is hard at work on a remastered package of such titles. That is, the upcoming Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection, which is set to include three updated classics in one package.
Collected within are the following games, as well as at least most of their previously released DLC:
- Ninja Gaiden Sigma
- Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
- Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge
“Ninja Gaiden is one of the most important and monumental titles for the Team Ninja brand, but we haven’t been able to release the series title on current generation platforms, so I am very delighted to be able to release it in this format as a trilogy,” says Team Ninja chief head Yosuke Hayashi in a press release. “If you enjoy challenging action games, we hope you will give it a try.”
Team Ninja head Fumihiko Yasuda added, “Ninja Gaiden is the origin of Team Ninja’s action games, and I hope that not only fans of the series, but also fans of the Nioh series will play these games. I hope that the day will come soon when I can provide information about the next game in the Ninja Gaiden series, which I’ve been continuously saying that I want to develop, but until then, please play as the ‘super ninja’ Ryu Hayabusa in the Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection.”
The Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection is currently in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Steam for PC, and will launch on the 10th of June.
