No More Heroes III gave plenty for hack-and-slash fans to be excited about during yesterday’s Nintendo Direct presentation, but for those looking for something a little more serious and old-school, you’ll be delighted to hear that Ninja Gaiden Master Collection was announced for the Nintendo Switch.

The collection includes remasters of Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Sigma 2, and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge. This marks the first time that those first two installments have been playable on a Nintendo console.

Each game stars the legendary ninja Ryu Hayabusa, as well as some familiar faces from the Dead or Alive series. Players will fight “against a great evil with battle skills that are second to none,” and “wield an arsenal of killer weapons, each offering a playstyle with a different set of lethal skills, along with ruthless ninjutsu to swiftly take down enemies.”
 

 
Ninja Gaiden Master Collection will be slashing its way onto Nintendo Switch on June 10, 2021.

When he's not playing games, Reece is usually reading Punisher comics, delving helplessly into the weirdest depths of anime and manga, or spending time with his cocker spaniel Gracie -- the goodest girl ever!
