This is the new Gametrailer.com video interview with Team Ninja developer; Adam Syzmanski, explaining the details of Ninja Gaiden Sigma for the PS3.
nice interview. however, after the interview with Itagaki, i have a funny hunch that there's some discord in the House of Team Ninja: almost like one developer wants to stick strictly with one console, while the other developer wants to broaden the franchise to other markets. i'm more for the latter approach, as it will be beneficial to all gamers.
that good at all. Definately more like a port, so I don't care to get it on the XBOX 360. I'd rather not see it come my way in it's present form.
so, you don't want an already great game, with vastly improved graphics, new enemy types and enemy AI, new bosses, a completely new playable character, plus additional moves for the original protagonist to come your way? okay. i think this has more to do with you being a bit upset that the series is finally coming to a non-XBox system, and less to do with it supposing to be a "port".
me myself: i've already beaten it on the original XBox (or rather on the 360 via backwards compatibility). but with the new additions such as new moves, new enemies, new playable characters etc. (including motion-sensing control) i think it'll warrent another purchase, just as long as it's sub-$50.
I haven't played a demo yet, so I could be wrong. But I don't think so.
Improved is as in very little, so it's just not worth buying.
Maybe the next title in the series if there is one, and one that's designed to fully utilize next gen. hardware.
This game sound great!

Its not the sequel!!! For NJ 2 EVERYTHING will be new.At the end of the day, NGS is just Ninja Gaiden Black with better graphics and an extra playable character. At least Ninja Gaiden Black was $20. But I digress. Its still Ninja Gaiden and it will be great (even though its not being made by Itagaki himself - he's now starting on NJ 2 on the 360). Plus, since its the first, you know your already getting a great game.
All your stuff may or maynot be correct... but still, it is a port of the same game but with some different features..
much like mgs 2: substance on the xbox??? didn't that game suck??
some franchises need to stay on one console and under one developer. Nothing in sigma appeals to me.
I'll definitely give this game a shot, especially since the Xbox guys gave it so much angry/joyous praise. I keep hearing "it's awesome..but it's so hard..and i couldn't beat it, but it was so awesome!" etc, heh.
I remember a time in the game I was fighting a sort of guardian samarai warrior on horse back and his magical minnions kept disappearing and re appearing where ever I would move, It was tough as hell to beat but I finally did it. I was proud, lol.
The underwater missions were also very hard but fun also. He has some great moves and the cities were huge for a last gen, title.
Yes, the game is fun, you should buy it and have fun playing it, I just was saying earlier that it only looks a bit dressed up to me, not a true next gen, title, but still fun:))
