Tecmo Releases Two Games in One Day

It's not horribly often that one video game publisher would release two different titles in one day, but on Tuesday, Tecmo announced today the release of both Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 on PlayStation 3 and Undead Knights on the PSP. The latest installment in the critically acclaimed series, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, has been released in North America, followed by Japan and Europe on October 2nd, 2009. The gut-wrenching, limb amputating, hack-n-slash zombie action game Undead Knights also releases in North America and today, followed later by a digital download release to play on the PSP go.

Dante's inferno... an excellent GoW inspired game. So sad the sequels will never be.

LoveSpuds632d ago (Edited 632d ago )

I recall enjoying it well enough at the time, but it wasn't a patch on God of War 3 which came out around the same time I think.

I own it and fired it up on my PS3 about 6 months ago and time hadn't been particularly kind to it although it still very much nailed the atmosphere and it is a cool as he'll setting and universe.

Inverno632d ago

Dante's Inferno needs the GOW treatment. No cut camera, with a real hellish depiction of the 9 circles and a story as dark and as serious would be amazing.

Yui_Suzumiya632d ago

Still pretty amazing there was a PSP version that was actually pretty good. I remember playing it 10 years ago. I had the PS3 version when it first came out and loved it.

Hellcat2020632d ago

Ahh the memories of playing Heavenly Sword
Such a amazing experience

LoveSpuds632d ago

Yup, I remember being blown away with Heavenly Sword. I remember holding out hope that they would go back and add trophy support as a incentive to go back and replay the game, but I don't think they ever did?

Yui_Suzumiya632d ago

I couldn't beat the final boss though! Spent several days trying but eventually gave up, lol. Still enjoyed it though.

refocusedman632d ago

heavenly sword was such a short, but amazing game. that game should be prime material to be made into a download only remaster.

YoungKingDoran632d ago

I really enjoyed Castlevania, but struggled to get into it again reattempting it a few years back. I still think it does another of things well; story, presentation, level varietily and art style at least. Gameplay maybe has not stood test of time unfortunately which makes it a chore to get through.

They need to make a true sequel to Ninja Gaiden 2, that was the most satisfying combat I've experienced in a hack n slash game.

micdagoat191666d ago

been playing 1&2 on and off since they were released. I usually will play until I get frustrated then take another year off lol. Nver tried 3 or the 4th one even though they are in my backlog.

Domestupidname1666d ago

I tried to go back to Sigma but good god those controls are just insufferable. Couldn't do it.

Very nice, but playing on original console is better - unless, of course, the console's tech is way too old and incompatible with the current tech standards.
The emulators must always be developed, though. It is good as a way to preserve and play old games.

Maybe in 5 years peasants will have access to our nostalgic games lol.

Casepb1948d ago

Backwards compatible PS5 is their only hope.

boing11947d ago

Only hope? Only hope for what? Mainstream console gaming is crushing mainstream PC gaming for several years now. You are extremely out of tune with reality.

mkis0071948d ago (Edited 1948d ago )

Consoles are cheap, would think not being able to buy one would make one a peasant. Personally, I dont understand the mindset; why not own everything if you can?

On top of my gaming pc, having a ps4 and Switch is a must for me. ( also have an X but it has been relegated to uhd player/ red dead 2 machine)

What is an extra couple hundred bucks to someone who loves to play.

ShadowWolf7121948d ago

A gas bill.
A light/water bill.
A car payment.
About a week or two's worth of groceries.
An unexpected expense that they can now cover.

I can go on. That is one hella privileged mindset there, broski. lol

mkis0071947d ago


Sorry I was referring to his use of the word peasant. Obviously meant to troll, but its fun to dissmantle the use of it.

PurpHerbison1947d ago (Edited 1947d ago )

It was a joke.

MoshA1946d ago

Because you can't enjoy the best games due to 30 fps. Thank God for that. If you care about fps more than graphics/combat/story/music then you don't deserve anything but LoL, Apex, WoW etc.

Care to give an example of such nostalgic game that console players would love to have? Because so far all I read about are poor attempts of launching 15 years old console games on PC with a playable framerate.
