“Ninja Gaiden is one of the most important and monumental titles for the Team Ninja brand, but we haven’t been able to release the series title on current generation platforms, so I am very delighted to be able to release it in this format as a trilogy,” says Yosuke Hayashi, Chief Head of Team Ninja. “If you enjoy challenging action games, we hope you will give it a try.”
Adds Fumihiko Yasuda, Head of Team Ninja, “Ninja Gaiden is the origin of Team Ninja’s action games, and I hope that not only fans of the series, but also fans of the Nioh series will play these games. I hope that the day will come soon when I can provide information about the next game in the Ninja Gaiden series, which I’ve been continuously saying that I want to develop, but until then, please play as the ‘super ninja’ Ryu Hayabusa in the Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection.”
To celebrate the reveal of Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection, Team Ninja will also run a special collaboration with Nioh 2. The development team has created the “Dragon Ninja” skin, which players can use to transform themselves into Ryu Hayabusa, the protagonist of Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection.
Ninjutsu and properly timed strikes are the name of the game as players will have to be quick on their feet to best their foes.
