Team Ninja's Yosuke Hayashi Talks Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2.

When asked if the release of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 was a "loss of face" like Itagaki had suggested, he simply dodged the question.
"Development began only after we read and heard about fan feedback ... after Ninja Gaiden 2 came out last summer."</blockquote>

Well defused Yosuke!

Yosuke also confirmed that Team Ninja are taking things "very seriously" when it comes to the prospect of DLC. Finally when prompted if the XBOX 360 would get Sigma 2 inspired camera fixes and tweaks, Yosuke confirmed that the ultimate edition is a "Playstation only experience".

Looks like all that success in Japan is paying off for Sony at last.
