Microsoft Store can’t stop – they now confirmed a few new details regarding the Ninja Gaiden reboot trilogy.
Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection was announced during February’s Nintendo Direct. According to the Redmond-based company’s store, the three games will run on 4K resolution, and „60+ FPS.” We should think of the PC, Xbox Series, PlayStation 5 platforms here, as the frame rate rules the PlayStation 4 Pro and the Xbox One X out, and the Nintendo Switch isn’t designed for such performance.
A month ago, we already wrote about the collection: „Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja are making Ninja Gaiden’s reboot trilogy’s second versions multiplatform (in the first two games, these are the Sigma games, although the first one’s Sigma was the third variant as it had a Black version as well; in the third game’s case, the subtitle was Razor’s Edge – mostly aimed for PlayStation platforms, with the third one first popping up on the Nintendo Wii U, followed by PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 versions), as the games will head to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC (Steam). 2007’s Ninja Gaiden Sigma, 2009’s Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, and 2012’s Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge will include all DLC on the quarter of platforms.
„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. If you enjoy challenging action games, we hope you will give it a try,” said Team Ninja chief head Yosuke Hayashi in a press release. „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 Ninja Gaiden series, which I’ve been continuously saying that I want to develop, but until then, please play as the ‘super ninja’ Ryu Hayabusa in the Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection,” Team Ninja head Fumihiko Yasuda added.”
Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection will launch on June 10 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series (backwards compatibility, better performance), PC (Steam), PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
