218w ago - Zen Studios Managing Director Zsolt Kigyossy has revealed that Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 ZEN Pinball Table is slated to arrive on the PS3 this month, as follows:
ZEN Studios has some exciting news for all you slice-and-dice fans! It's my pleasure to announce that we have partnered with Tecmo as the inspiration for a Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 pinball table, which is the second expansion table for the PSN exclusive ZEN Pinball.
Yes, the most intense action game series of all time will be paired with the fast-paced action, stunning visuals, and true-to-life ball and table physics from ZEN Pinball.
To further whet your appetite as we gear up for launch, the Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 table boasts a record five multiball game modes, a massive amount of killer action-packed missions where players can unleash a ridiculous amount of punishment with lightning-fast weapon combos, ball slicing effects, electricity charged ramps and much more!
Currently, we have a tentative release date scheduled for October 2009, so mark your calendars and plan to spend some quality time slashing your way through the Sky City Tokyo-themed table come this fall.
221w ago - Today Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has shared a Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 interview and walkthrough with Team Ninja's Yosuke Hayashi.
To quote: Team Ninja Producer and Director Yosuke Hayashi should be very familiar to you by now. His series of posts here on the Blog revealed a bunch of new footage, modes and goodies for the PS3's Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2.
Some of those include a nice chuck of Momiji gameplay, Team Missions co-op mode, and Chapter Challenge mode where after you clear Story Mode, you can go back and replay chapters to compete with others around the world.
Since then, you've been asking for Mr. Hayashi to drop some comments on the Blog. But we did ya one better – an almost 10-minute long interview/walkthrough that should answer all your lingering questions on Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 before its release in less than two weeks on September 29.
So until then, summon your Ninpo skill – if Ninja Gaiden history has taught us anything, there's some insanely hard Trophies to be had.
One more thing. A Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 PS3 demo will hit the PlayStation Store next Thursday, September 24!
226w ago - Team Ninja Producer Yosuke Hayashi has unveiled today a Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Chapter Challenge Mode, Ninja Records and more as follows:
This is our first attempt in releasing our game simultaneously in all three regions, but we're confident we can make it happen.
We're excited to see the response and feedback to the all-new Team Missions mode (and everything else we've shared so far), and today I'd like to introduce two additional, new features of the game.
The first reveal is Chapter Challenge Mode. The mode will become available once you clear Story Mode - you can go back to your favorite chapter and replay to compete with fellow ninjas around the world for the highest Karma score.
After clearing the chapter, you will be ranked based on your total Karma score. The highest rank - of course - is "MASTER NINJA" and the lowest is "NINJA DOG". You also have the option to review your gameplay in Ninja Cinema (which is also available in Team Missions) and share your videos online and download videos of other players.
Online rankings are sorted by chapter and difficulty level. It's entirely up to you whether you want to rank in all difficulty levels or master a certain chapter...just be ready for the challenge!
228w ago - Today Kombo.com (linked above) has shared a Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 trailer for PlayStation 3.
Scheduled for an Autumn 2009 release on PS3, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 is an upgraded version of Team Ninja's hack and slash action sequel, with brand-new features added making it more than a direct port.
This is in similar fashion to the original Ninja Gaiden Sigma released on PS3, which included improved graphical detail, new enemies, and dual katanas (Dragon's Claw and Tiger's Fang).
From the video's caption, to quote: Ninja Gaiden is going to take the PS3 by storm. Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 is preparing to massacre PS3 gamers this September. If this new trailer doesn't convince you that this version is awesome, then nothing will.
