Unlike the last Ninja Gaiden R18+ classification, which went to the family-friendly Nintendo Wii U, this one goes to Sony. The PlayStation Vita will host our first handheld R18+ game, which has been awarded to Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus — the twice-altered slice ‘n dice action game from Team Ninja.
While the original version of this game intended for Australia — Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 — had gore taken out of it, instead having enemies dissolve into purple mist, the Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus version has added the gore back in. There will be blood, and when you dismember enemies, the members will stay on the ground like they damn well should.
The Ninja Gaiden games are for hardcore, fast-paced action fans. Expect to see Sigma 2 Plus on shelves sometime in the first quarter of the year.
