Ninja Gaiden fans will be pleased to know three entries in the series are being bundled in one nice collection.
During the Nintendo Direct presentation today, the Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection was announced for Switch, but it is also coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One. PS5 and Xbox One Series X/S users can play it via backward compatibility.
The collection contains three action-packed entries in the series: Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge. It will also include most of the previously released game modes and DLC costumes.
In the games, you take on the role of super ninja Ryu Hayabusa as he battles fiends causing chaos around the world. You can also enjoy additional characters such as Ayane, Rachel, Momiji, and Kasumi as they appeared in the original version of the games.
“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 Yosuke Hayashi, chief head of Team Ninja. “If you enjoy challenging action games, we hope you will give it a try.”
Adds Fumihiko Yasuda, head of Team Ninja: “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 series, which I’ve been continuously saying that I want to develop, but until then, please play as Ryu Hayabusa in the Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection.”
The collection is slated to release on June 10.
