New Features of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus Unveiled
Team NINJA has revealed some new information on their upcoming addition to the Ninja Gaiden series Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus.
One of the new features is â€œNinja Raceâ€ mode where players are challenged to race against a clock through a course filled with enemies. Players will have to decide whether they want to move strategically to avoid trouble or plow headfirst into the enemies for boosts and points. This mode also includes three special essences that help players complete each course: the green essence adds time to the clock, the white essence boosts the Combo Kill counter to allow a greater damage output, and the purple essence gives a boost to speed.
Another new feature is the inclusion of â€œTag Missions.â€ Tag missions allow players to take along an AI-controlled team member. Every player character has his or her strengths and weaknesses and players can switch between them team members in real time. Players will have to familiarize themselves with the characters they use in order to successfully complete these missions.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus is slated for a March 1, 2013 release; there will also be a pre-order DLC that includes limited edition costumes for female characters.
