Team NINJA’s upcoming bundle of Ninja Gaiden games, Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection, will support a much higher resolution and frame rate than the original Xbox and PlayStation versions. This is according to the Microsoft Store, which updated its official listing for Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection today with tags alluding to “4K Ultra HD” and “60 FPS+” support for the Xbox One edition. The latter suggests that each game in the collection (Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge) might run as high as 120 FPS on next-gen consoles.
“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,” a press release reads. “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.”
Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection will be released for Xbox One (playable on Xbox Series X|S via Backward Compatibility), PlayStation 4 (playable on PS5 via Backward Compatibility), Nintendo Switch, and Steam on June 10, 2021. The deluxe version of the game comes with a digital art book and soundtrack that includes visuals, images, and music from the franchise.
