The online retailer Xtralife has just listed a planned collection for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch title Ninja Gaiden Sigma Trilogy, which is going to release on March 2021.
The Ninja Gaiden Sigma Trilogy in question is expected to include Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, and Ninja Gaiden: Razor’s Edge. At the moment no further details are available since we are talking about an indiscretion not yet verified, and in this sense, Koei Tecmo has not released official news on the matter.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma was originally released on PlayStation 3 in 2007 as an expanded version of the original Ninja Gaiden for Xbox. Similarly, Team Ninja later released Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, an updated version of the sequel, for the Sony console in 2009. Ninja Gaiden: Razor’s Edge, on the other hand, was an improved version of the original Ninja Gaiden 3, released for Wii U in 2013.
The third game is remembered for being the first installment of the series not to be directed by Tomonobu Itagaki. Of course, reseller lists don’t always translate to an actual product, and they need to be taken with due precautions. However, with The Game Awards just around the corner, it certainly looks like a good time for Koei Tecmo to announce this collection.
Ninja Gaiden 3 was negatively received by critics and audiences, and there has been no news of this historic series since. Given the recent success of the Nioh series, it cannot be ruled out that Team Ninja wants to revive the feats of the iconic Ryu.
We just have to wait for the next few months to find out if this collection of Ninja Gaiden Trilogy will actually return to our consoles with a new updated version. Tomorrow, in the new The Game Awards we may find out more about it.
