Here’s What The Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection Digital Deluxe Edition Will Include

Ninjas, at the ready, because Koei Tecmo has revealed the Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection’s Digital Deluxe Edition.

Included comes a 70-page digital artbook and a soundtrack with an astonishing over-180 song list. This will come at an extra $5 for a total $44.99 cost. However, those who decide to purchase the three-game collection on Xbox can get a 10% discount for pre-ordering.

From the screenshots, we know that there will be a breakdown of each character’s concept art and 3D render, including Ayane and the main man Ryu Hayabusa. In addition, each game’s soundtrack is separated into different playlists, making the music easy to access.

If you decide to pre-order either the standard or Digital Deluxe versions of the game on PS4, you’ll get a special theme and five Ninja Gaiden avatars to spruce up your profile. The avatars include Ryu, Ayane, Rachel, Momiji, and Kasumi, five mainstays of the  Ninja Gaiden series and the fighting game franchise Dead or Alive. There will also be bonuses for the Nintendo Switch and Steam for pre-ordering too, but Koei Tecmo will reveal that information over the coming weeks on its official Twitter account.

Regardless of the pre-order bonuses and special editions, the Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection includes all three mainline entries in the 3D era: Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge. If you have a PS4 Pro, PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox One X, or PC (which hits the requirements), all three titles will be running at a buttery smooth 60 frames per second in 4K resolution. 

Furthermore, this new release will include all of the DLC costumes of each title, so you can venture into the hack-and-slasher in whatever garment you please.

If you’re a big fan of these games, there are some factors to keep in mind. This collection will not include the online multiplayer for the tag missions in Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 or the ninja trials in Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge. The “Shadow of the world” and “Clan battles modes ” are also not available in the final game in the trilogy for this collection.

As the game was revealed during a Nintendo Direct, there’s been some speculation on whether or not Ryu Hayabusa will make it to the crossover fighter Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The director and producer of the first game Tomonobu Itagaki gave two enthusiastic thumbs up to an interviewer when asked if he’d like to see Ryu become a character for the game. 

While you wait for the Master Collection, you can play as Ryu in the tough-as-nails Nioh 2 as a skin.
