Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 for PS3??

Well waddya know, despite being published by Microsoft with the very debatable “Only on Xbox” writing slapped in front of the case, looks like PS3 owners will still be getting their own version of the 360 exclusive title, Ninja Gaiden 2. Seen first in a leaked scan of the latest copy of Famitsu, Yosuke Hayashi (main man behind the first Sigma) will again be the one overseeing the remake (yes, it looks like it won’t be just a simple port).

The best action game out there, now on the PS3

Here’s what’s been confirmed in Neogaf:

– It will be an upgraded version of Ninja Gaiden 2 (not a direct port)
– Set to release in autumn 2009
– The magazine will be reporting new elements in coming issues
– Producer and director: Yosuke Hayashi (From Sigma)
– Development: Team Ninja

New features in the PS3 version:
– New weapon – spiked hammer “Genma”
– New giant boss battles not in the 360 version
– New playable character – female ninja Ayane

Let’s hope this becomes the definitive version since Ninja Gaiden 2 was riddled with bugs and whatnot. Will be interesting though how they’ll go through with the remake since it looks like NG2 was stressing the 360 a lot (slowdowns at sub 720p resolutions.)
