Ninja Gaiden Sigma comes to Vita in Japan this February

Team Ninja's PlayStation Vita update of Ninja Gaiden Sigma will arrive in Japan this February, according to the latest issue of Famitsu. Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus is augmented with Ninja Gaiden 3's "Hero Mode," which assists players in experiencing the story by giving Ryu auto-block and auto-dodge. Understanding the story remains a challenge left to the player.

If the port is ready for release in Japan by February, there's a good chance it'll end up as a launch or launch window title in the rest of the world. The localization was completed years ago, after all.

According to Famitsu, Sigma Plus will be priced at a challenging ¥6,090 ($79) in Japan. Yes, Japanese game prices are nuts.%Gallery-140482%
