The most intense, challenging,
action-packed ninja adventure is back and arriving exclusively on the
PLAYSTATION 3 this fall. The latest installment in the critically acclaimed
series, NINJA GAIDEN SIGMA 2, will be launching September 29, 2009 in North

Developed by Tecmo’s own Team NINJA,
the NINJA GAIDEN series follows the adventures of super ninja Ryu Hayabusa
throughout the world. The series has earned high praise and a loyal following
amongst core fans, as well as action gamers alike. Released in July 2007, NINJA
GAIDEN SIGMA was the first in the series to land on the PLAYSTATION 3 system.
From playability, visual presentation, to sound, the game received excellent
scores all around.
NINJA GAIDEN SIGMA 2 takes the
series further with the introduction of an all-new Team Missions online co-op
mode and Chapter Challenge mode, multiple playable characters, large weapon
variety, "Ninja Record" player stat system, a prologue comic with voice-overs
and more. Encapsulating these features into one package makes NINJA GAIDEN SIGMA
2 not only the most challenging and addictive action game, but also the most
definitive version of the series to date.

be available exclusively at GameStop retailers nationwide and Canada. The
Collector’s Edition includes an 80-page book featuring:
