Tecmo has announced a Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2: Special Collector’s Edition for those gamers who pre-order the game at GameStop. The game will be released on September 29th exclusively for PlayStation 3.

Included in the Collector’s Edition package for those who pre-order at GameStop will be an exclusive 80-page Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 book that includes three sections.

One section of the book will include awesome and vibrant artwork from the game including art of the Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 characters. The second section will include a color comic that links to the storyline and cut-scenes in Ninja Gaiden 2. The last section of the book is a strategy guide that will assist players in advancing through the game’s campaign.

While the above book sounds cool, it’s too bad that gamers won’t be getting the extras featured in the Japanese collector’s edition which included a soundtrack CD and the special casing you see above.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 is the sequel to the blockbuster action game by Tecmo’s heralded Team Ninja, now with new playable characters, new enemies, new bosses, new weapons, online play and more built specifically for the PS3 version.

Gamers must guide Ryu Hayabusa on a mission to avenge his clan and prevent the destruction of the human race. Armed with an assortment of ninja weaponry, players must help Ryu skillfully maneuver through a world fraught with peril and danger. Running on an entirely new gameplay engine, Ninja Gaiden 2 evolves the action in the sequel with an auto-generation health system, new enemies and locales, and thrilling combat built upon an extensive assortment of ninja weaponry.

Here is a video where the developers talk about the game and show off extensive gameplay footage of the new characters.
