Ninja Gaiden Sigma to have downloadable content of 'amazing depth'

Recently, Sony hosted a message board based Q&A session with Yosake Hayashi, the director of Ninja Gaiden: Sigma, where he fielded questions from various readers about the upcoming action title. It's a great read and covers a wide variety of topics from the number of difficulty levels (five) to their support of Home (no -- but look for unique Home support in future products).

The most interesting question though, had to do with downloadable content. When a reader brought up the Hurricane Packs for the original Xbox version, Hayashi responded with, "We'll be making an announcement regarding our plans for downloadable content soon. The content will have some amazing depth for a download!"

No additional information was given but considering their track record with DLC, we should be able to expect something pretty cool from them later this year. Further on in the Q&A session, he also hinted that we may be hearing about the next Team NINJA title sooner than we expected, by saying that "There could be an announcement coming in the very near future ..." but that until then we should enjoy Ninja Gaiden Sigma. Perhaps an E3 announcement about a second Team NINJA PS3 title? We'll find out soon!

3. This is incredible. I'll get to play NGS on my PS3 and NG2 on my Elite. Best of both worlds.

4. I'm getting worried now. My HDD is already pretty full :S...

Oh well, at least Sony isn't forcing me to pay more than the current market price if I wish to upgrade it...

5. Please, please, please announce NG2 on ps3 and xbox 360.

I don't want to play it on my xbox i hate the 360's controller for these types of games :(

6. maybe the depth he's talking about is some experimental VS. mode?

that'd be awesome.

7. @Naaiif

i'd have to disagree with you right there. i played through the original NG with a PS2 controller adapter (it was an experiment) and did not appreciate the stick placement.

the xbox and the xbox 360 have the better controller for twitch based action games such as NG, the stick placement is set more naturally.

not to mention these controllers are better for shooters with the triggers shaped like...well triggers and the rumble overall helping to immerse you with getting hit or shooting a gun.

i laid hands on the 360 controller at E3 2005 and it was immediately the most comfortable controller i have ever used. i went and bought one for my PC as a matter of fact.

now if only i found a 360 that actually worked...

8. i can't wait to see more of their next game as much as this game.

9. When are they ever going to make a completely new Ninja Gaiden?

10. The demo pwns me all the freakin time... should i get it anyways?

11. Ninja Gaiden Sigma is the KING OF ALL GAMES IN 2007!!! Thats right Bigger then Halo 3! This game is a masterpiece and its about time people give it the credit it deserves. I read reviews and they don't give it a perfect score because of the camara angles and I have a hard time understanding that because games like God of War which got an almost perfect review has terrible camara angles and it never gets mentioned. But its always one of the first things people say about Ninja Gaiden. I don't get it. Give them the credit Team Ninja deserves and they'll bring Ninja Gaiden 2 to 360 and PS3!!! Buy Sigma! You won't regret it.

12. pfft... this was on xbox 3 years ago. millions played it already. i bought an xbox just for this (could care less about the other games).

and murdew78 you read EGM's review no doubt. so you know that the game also has screen tearing and unnecessary loading IN game right?

a Halo 3 killer this is not. nothing can stop the juggernaut that is Halo 3. ...well maybe a few red rings of doom lol...
