  • Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 will contain less gore than Xbox 360 counterpart

    Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 bloodless displayed. Purplse mist instead of gore
    Fans of Ninja Gaiden 2 and PlayStation 3 owners alike will probably be disheartened by this news: Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 for PS3 will contain less gore than it’s Xbox 360 counterpart. But hey there is always more sexy women for you to play as to make up for it, eh.

    It is interesting because even though the game is STILL M-rated, Team Ninja for some reason decided to tone down certain aspects of the gore in the game. That means that less blood squirts out during fights, less blood hits the ground and stays there during fights and beheadings now feature a blue glow to obscure SOME of the inherent gore that happens when you behead someone. Actually it’s greatly obscured, almost to the point where it looks like they are now ghouls instead of people.

  • It all seems a bit bewildering though, cause other aspects of the game remain as violent as they ever were, with only the above changes being made. What could possibly explain this?

    Here is Team Ninja’s response:
    “Each game has its own concept and with Ninja Gaiden 2, the focus was on extreme violence. But with Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, we really questioned whether violence is a necessity for a game, so we decided to move away from that trend. So the violence ‘approach’ is not the way we approached the development of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2. Being able to unlock higher levels of gore would be out of kilter with the concept of the game.”

    And to see what less violence looks like, check out this comparison video.

    Sad, ain’t it. Thankfully if you aren’t all in it for the gore, then you will still find an enjoyable action game underneath.
