(Updated) According to a Microsoft Store listing, upcoming video game trilogy remaster Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection will run at high-peak rates and top-quality resolutions.
A listing on Microsoft Store recently featured the details of the upcoming popular video game collection in remastered form. Updated: listing is still there with new link. (thanks Reddit!)
The listing states that all three titles: Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Ninja, Gaiden Sigma 2, and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge will run at impressive 60fps and 4K resolution. This could be applicable to PC and PlayStation consoles as well.
The compilation was first announced during the Nintendo Direct presentation last month. A press release then confirmed that it would be available on other platforms as well like PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It would also be playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S via backwards compatibility feature.
Here’s what Team Ninja Chief Head Yosuke Hayashi stated in a press release:
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. If you enjoy challenging action games, we hope you will give it a try.
The NINJA GAIDEN: Master Collection brings the renowned action games to PC and consoles, allowing fans and newcomers alike to experience the tale of “super ninja” Ryu Hayabusa as he battles deadly fiends causing chaos around the world. NINJA GAIDEN Sigma, originally released in 2007, set the standard of high-speed action for the series – introducing dual-wielding weapons, and a Mission Mode alongside its gripping Story Mode. NINJA GAIDEN Sigma 2, originally released in 2009, continued Hayabusa’s journey alongside characters Ayane, Rachel, and Momiji, with four difficulty levels testing player’s battle techniques with every heart-stopping fight. The latest entry, NINJA GAIDEN 3: Razor’s Edge, originally released in 2012, upped the challenge with powerful new enemies and fiercely violent depictions, as well as bringing Kasumi into the action, making it the series’ most alluring white-knuckle experience to date.
