The Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection brings the renowned action games to PS4 and PS5 via backwards compatibility, allowing fans and newcomers alike to experience the tale of “super ninja” Ryu Hayabusa as he battles deadly fiends causing chaos around the world.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma, originally released in 2007, set the standard of high-speed action for the series – introducing dual-wielding weapons, and a Mission Mode alongside its gripping Story Mode. Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, originally released in 2009, continued Hayabusa’s journey alongside characters Ayane, Rachel, and Momiji, with four difficulty levels testing players’ battle techniques with every heart-stopping fight. The latest entry, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge, originally released in 2012, increased the challenge with powerful new enemies and fiercely violent depictions, as well as bringing Kasumi into the action, making it the series’ most alluring white-knuckle experience to date.
The nostalgic yet timeless action of the three games offers a highly responsive and challenging experience – with battles that require defensive and offensive moves similar to fighting games. Players can enjoy playing as the fan-favourite ninja, Ryu Hayabusa, alongside the additional characters such as Ayane, Rachel, Momiji and Kasumi as they appeared in the original version of the games. Master your favourite characters in intense action-packed battles like only the NINJA GAIDEN series can deliver.
Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection will release on 10th June 2021 for PS4 and PS5. There won’t be a specific PS5 version but it will be playable on PS5 via backwards compatibility.
