Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 for PS3 to have less gore than 360

Wednesday, 1st July 2009 17:19 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 for PS3 will have less blood and gore than the Xbox 360 version, according to Koei Tecmo.

It’s still rated M, but blood spills don’t linger as long, and beheadings emit a blue glow to conceal most of the stuff pumping out of the hole in the neck.

“Each game has its own concept and with Ninja Gaiden 2, the focus was on extreme violence,” Yosuke Hayashi told GamesRadar. “But with Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, we really questioned whether violence is a necessity for a game, so we decided to move away from that trend. So the violence ‘approach’ is not the way we approached the development of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2.

“Being able to unlock higher levels of gore would be out of kilter with the concept of the game.”

Apples and oranges, ya know.
