After a quick stop on Nintendo’s new Wii U console, Ryu Hayabusa is jumping back to Sony’s PS Vita platform in Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus, the sequel to the PS Vita launch title Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus.
The latest “upgraded” Ninja Gaiden release gets a graphical upgrade from its predecessor, as well as new controls to take advantage of the PS Vita’s front and rear touchscreens. For example, players will be able to combine the front touchscreen and six-axis to simultaneously launch projectiles while triggering Ninpo attacks.
There are also a couple of new modes outlined below in the game’s official bullet points below.
- Nonstop Carnage: The “Hero” Play Style makes its comeback! Once again, new and casual players can trigger powerful and exhilarating attacks and advance through the game. If selected, this play style activates automatically when the player is low on health.
- Life-or-Death Race: Players compete with enemies at a breakneck super-high speed to be the first to reach the end goal in the all-new “Ninja Race” mode. Pick up items and cut down those who stand in your way to further enhance your speed and attack power.
- More Deadly Female Action: Ayane, Rachel, and Momiji take center stage in newly designed costumes. The unique new “Tag Mission” mode allows players to switch between their two favorite ninjas in real-time while defending the AI-controlled partner. Players can choose the character best suited to each situation for a more exciting and personalized action game experience.
- Versatile Touch Action: Through the use of the PS Vita rear and front touch screens, along with precise six-axis motion controls, players can now immerse themselves even deeper into the ultimate ninja experience.
