In the current generation of gaming, Microsoft has made a big push in supporting Backwards Compatibility with it’s XBOX One console, adding new titles you can play often on a weekly basis as well as allowing you to purchase the game through their digital store.
Now KOEI Tecmo and Microsoft have partnered up to release the original Ninja Gaiden 2 for the XBOX 360 onto the XBOX One console. If you have the game already physically you can now stick it in your XBOX One and play it without hassle, or if you have yet to experience the game you can purchase a copy off of it via their digital store. To top it all, the game also boasts XBOX One X Enhanced experience, so if you have the juggernaut X console, you can enjoy it in a far improved state!
Along with the release of the XBOX One Backwards Compatible version of the game, you can also purchase all the DLC that was originally released for the game including costume packs and the Mission Mode.
Mind you this may not have all the extra bells and whistles the Sigma 2 edition received, but it does have the full gore and spectacle that creator Tomonobu Itagaki originally envisioned for the title.
Ninja Gaiden 2 digitally is priced at £24.99/$29.99, so it may be worth waiting on a sale for it, or simply picking up a physical copy cheaper from various retail outlets. The game definitely is a satisfying stylistic action romp, and well recommended in this form – even without the Sixaxis 16 year old girl jiggling and added content of the Sigma 2 edition.
