Team Ninja’s Yosuke Hayashi has said in an interview that Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 is running off of a hybrid engine developed for Ninja Gaiden 2 as well as one created for the original Sigma on PS3.
Reasoning? It’s apparently more difficult to port from Xbox 360 onto PS3, he said, thus the creation of the engine.
“In terms of having to have to basically split the memory going from Xbox 360 to PS3, [this] to us was a rather easier thing to do because it wasn’t like taking that one bucket full of memory and then having to have to figure out how to split it so that it goes appropriately into each slot that PS3 is basically providing us,” he told Gamasutra.
“We kind of had a way, or formula, that was already almost figured out by the time we knew that we we’re going to move on to PS3, and it was an easier method for us, because we had both the engines that we had worked on for the previous Sigma as well as Ninja Gaiden 2.
As a result, Hayashi says that a multiplatform engine that covers both the Xbox 360 and PS3 is now available to Team Ninja for future titles.
“It’s not just a port of 2 to PS3. It’s not just something that we’re taking and cutting and pasting,” he added. “We’re trying to incorporate all these different elements that we’ve created so far in the series and put it all into one package.”

Check them out.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 will have online co-op, according to Famitsu.
Team Mission is what it’s called, and you can play through with a real live partner or a CPU controlled ally.
Each mission can be finished in one sitting, and most end with an epic boss battle.
It’s out October 1 in Japan.

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.

Team Ninja wants Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 to be “sleek and sexy,” and not as violent as others in the series.
Producer and director Yosuke Hayashi has told CVG that the team working on the PS3 version is “kind of egoistic” and gets “bored with the same continuous concept”: that’s why it’s shying away from a direct Xbox 360 port.
Hayash doesn’t want it to be namby pamby, but he does want to “start evolving this game.”
More through the link. It’s out later this year.
