Previously Xbox 360 exclusive Ninja Gaiden 2 will be making its way over to the PlayStion 3 this fall, with new and improved features as well as sporting the new moniker of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2.

That’s according to a variety of reports hitting the ‘net today, after Japanese gaming mag Famitsu released the information within its pages, revealing that (Ninja Gaiden remake on the PS3) Ninja Gaiden Sigma developer, Yosuke Hayashi, will be working on the game and will be delivering an ‘upgraded’ version of Ninja Gaiden 2, heading up the Team Ninja development studio to do so.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 will contain new playable character Ayane (from the Dead or Alive series), new boss battles (apparently not possible on the Xbox 360) and new weapons, including spiked hammer, Genma.

Tomonobu Itagaki was famed for his preference for Microsoft’s consoles, supporting both the original Xbox and Xbox 360 with his games at Team Ninja, such as the Dead or Alive series and Ninja Gaiden, but after his departure from the company last year, it seems the studio will become openly multiplatform in the future.
