PlayStation Vita Ninja Gaiden Sigma Due in February
Vita version adds touch controls and new Hero Mode.
PlayStation Vita's early 2012 lineup is slowly filling up. Joining the February 9 release date for Acquire's Sumioni, we have a general time frame of February 2012 for the Vita version of Ninja Gaiden Sigma, officially titled Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus. Weekly Famitsu reveals the time frame and a price of ¥6090 for the game's retail version.
Famitsu also has a full preview of the game, showing a couple of Vita specific features. You'll be able to use the rear touch screen to power up your ninpo moves. The Vita version also adds a new "Hero Mode," which sounds like it should actually be a "ninja dog" mode as you're assisted with auto guard and auto evasion when your life runs low.
With Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus, Vita's post launch lineup now includes:
- 1/19: Wipeout 2048
- 1/26: Tales of Innocence R
- 2/2: Ragnarok Odyssey
- 2/9: Gravity Daze
- 2/9: Sumioni
- 2/16: Gyokugen Dasshutsu Adv Zennin Shiboudes
