For those who haven’t played Ninja Gaiden 2 or the Sigma version; Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus 2 follows the same story with the ninja Ryu Hayabusa trying to to prevent the resurrection of the evil Archfiend by hunting down the Demon Statue stolen by the wicked Black Spider Ninja Clan. Players will battle from Tokyo to New York as Ryu encounters vicious enemies while building an awesome arsenal of ninja weaponry.


In the “Ninja Race Mode” Players  select a character, level and costume and do their best to quickly speed through special courses to beat the clock. All while deciding to confront and kill as many enemies as they can to earn extra boost and points.

The mode’s also has a special Combo Kill counter that will  increase as you chain kill more enemies. So the higher the counter, the more damage is dealt as long as the gauge stays filled.  Also to help you out in the Ninja Race mode there will be 3 special Essence boost that will help the player’s chance of a successful mission: the Green Essence adds time to the clock, White Essence boosts the Combo Kill counter for added damage, and Purple Essence grants Ninja Speed.


Then we have the second new mode the, “Tag Missions” which allows you to team up any twotwo characters which can you switch who you control in real time as you try to overcome challenges, with the other team member under AI control.

With each fighter having different strengths and weaknesses, players can strategically tag back and forth when facing different opponents and situations by pressing down on the directional pad.

Also the game will be adding a “Hero” play style which is activated by the rear touch pad and  makes it easier for even new and casual players to use more the powerful attacks and help you get through the game.
