Reported at 3AM this morning, the Xbox 360 exclusive Ninja Gaiden 2 is getting a remake made specifically for the rival console PS3. This project is still being made by Team Ninja, but not the original team that made Ninja Gaiden 2. The game is slated to drop this fall under the title “Ninja Gaiden ? 2″. When reached for comment on the remake, Tomonobu Itagaki, former leader of the original team that made NGII, said the following:
All you need to do is play Ninja Gaiden II and then try and play Sigma afterwards and you’ll see why. Despite the fact that it’s on a ‘next-generation’ console there’s no evolution whatsoever. That was made not by me, but one of my sub-ordinates who basically tried to copy the success of Ninja Gaiden.
As you can see with the picture posted above, It shows the proof of this game coming to PS3, on top of that this game will have PSN Support and another playable character, Ryu’s friend from DOA, Ayane. May the PS3 fanboys now jizz their pants!
