Get ready to slice and dice with some classic Team Ninja and Koei Tecmo works that are finally getting bundled together, as the newest Nintendo Direct has revealed that the Ninja Gaiden series is coming to Nintendo Switch collectively as the Ninja Gaiden: Master Edition — which will be released for the hybrid console as well as PS4, Xbox One, and PC this June.
Here’s the new trailer showcasing the classic trilogy in action.
Ninja Gaiden: Master Edition Reveal Trailer
Originally released as an Xbox exclusive in 2004, Ninja Gaiden saw the return of master ninja Ryu Hayabusa for a new generation following his appearance in the original trilogy of Ninja Gaiden games for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Set in the same universe as the Dead or Alive fighting game series, the game was critically acclaimed — and saw a reworked version released called Ninja Gaiden Black in 2005, while Ninja Gaiden Sigma was an enhanced port that was released for the PS3 in 2007. A true sequel called Ninja Gaiden 2 was also released for the Xbox 360 in 2008, which would later get a heavily altered release for the PS3 in Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2. Ninja Gaiden 3 would simultaneously release for both PS3 and Xbox 360 in early 2012, with an updated release called Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge hitting the Wii U later that year.
The updated versions in Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge are the versions that will be ported to current gen consoles and PC.
We previously reported that a Ninja Gaiden Sigma Trilogy was coming to PS4 and Nintendo Switch. Looks like that’s officially confirmed now for both as well as Xbox One and PC.
Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection will be released for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on June 10.
