Team Ninja might not be working on a full-fledged new Ninja Gaiden entry right now (even though some at the studio definitely want to), but it’s not like there’s nothing in the future for series fans to look forward to. Koei Tecmo recently announced Ninja Gaiden Master Collection, a compilation of remastered versions of Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razer’s Edge– and based on new information, they’ll be quite the significant upgrades over their original releases.
A Microsoft Store listing for the game (as spotted by VGC) claims that on Xbox One, Ninja Gaiden Master Collection will run at 4K, and boast performance that could exceed 60 frames per second. Obviously, that’s likely referring to the game’s Xbox One X version, and it should mean that players can expect similar (or better) resolution and frame rate on the Xbox Series X via backward compatibility. This has yet to be confirmed by Koei Tecmo, though if it does turn out to be accurate, it’ll be interesting to see how the game fares on a PS4 Pro.
Meanwhile, you’ll also notice that the store listing in question is for a Deluxe Edition, which is something else that Koei Tecmo haven’t officially announced yet. According to the store page, the Deluxe Edition will include a digital art book and soundtrack.
Ninja Gaiden Master Collection is due out on June 10 for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
