Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus Cuts Down Difficulty with Hero Mode

Down to size

Tecmo Koei's implementing a beginner option into the wordy Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus. The patronisingly named ‘Hero’ mode will allow ninja newbies to conquer the upcoming PlayStation Vita re-release without needing to break a sweat. Well, unless Ayane is on-screen.

The dainty difficulty will implement automatic blocking when protagonist Ryu is in a pinch. Elsewhere, the handheld upgrade will add touch-screen throwing controls, which sound, well, totally unnecessary if you ask us.

Other additions include Ninja Race – picture Canabalt but with better clothing – and a new Tag Mission mode. The pocketable port is due out on 28th February in Japan. There’s no word on a Western release, but it will almost certainly make its way overseas.

If Itagaki was still there, this wouldn't have been implemented... in the traditional sense, anyway. Ryu would probably be pink instead and all gore would be replaced by rainbows. I guess that's interesting in its own right.
