Sigma 2 Collectors Edition Features 80-Page Book

At this point, just about every last significant release is gonna have a Collectors Edition of some sort...it's almost inevitable this generation.

As revealed by News10, GameStop will exclusively offer a Collectors Edition for the impending Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 (which we have already played, by the way). Rather than a bunch of different items jammed into the package, it will simply feature an 80-page book that will feature:

  • A 30-page Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 prologue comic written and designed by Team NINJA
  • Mini-Strategy Guide: A starter guide covering Ryu, Ayane, Momiji, and Rachel's weapons, ninpos, Story Mode basics, Team Missions and more
  • Art Gallery: A peek at various character concept artwork
  • Commentary from Team NINJA producer Yosuke Hayashi and the team's lead artists

As if that isn't enough, if you pre-order your copy, you will get an exclusive downloadable costume on the PlayStation Network...no word on whether or not it will be a string bikini for Rachel or Ayane. Remember the Venus swimsuit in Dead or Alive: Xtreme Beach Volleyball...? 'cough' Anyway, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 is set to release on September 29, and you can bet it's going to appeal to all the hardcore action fans out there (as the NG titles always do).

You got to love how publishers are now trying to fight off the used games market by adding a load of extras.

I mean seriously think about it...for almost 90% of every single game coming out...there's always an extra so they can capture most of the consumers on release day. I applaud their effort...but it's just sort of not working on me. I like the game itself.

Now if it's for a franchise like Metal Gear or Final Fantasy...I would completely understand why someone would go on first day release not just because of the game but for some extras.

But I hope the best for publishers.

Arnold played it, so I don't know...but I'm willing to bet the "bounce" is still there in full abundance.

...that may be a pun...not sure...

I think it would be fair to say that in some ways the reason for the change is that they hope to sell more copies of the game in Japan. Culturally and aesthetically the over the top violence and gore is probably less desirable, while the more stylized action and boobage are more acceptable.

Funnily enough Americans have a far higher tolerance for violence and gore, and the Xbox360 (which the game was previously on) is the predominant HD game console in America.

Eh, regular SE stuff, doesn't really affect me... considering I would probably buy it even if it included a sort of jack-in-the-box pop out knife when you open the case. It'd still be worth it.

Gamestop Ireland better be included but it depends on the content of the book.
Still couldn't they afford to add soundtrack CD or figurine?!
