The truth in all of this : I'm happy that this compilation will bring this legendary franchise to new fans and revive the series, I'm sad that for the OG fans we only got this after waiting years and years.
Of course i would have gladly preferred they also include Black / NG2 in this package, but hey at least we got killer backward compatibility on series X to enjoy theses gems, the important point is to let new players discover the games and hoping we got a sequel in the near future.
I bought a PS3 just for Sigma and imported the US version of the game just to have the gore of seing head sliced off and rolling on the floor that was censored in both EU/JAP version of the game, so yeah... I'm pretty elitist with Ninja Gaiden.
It's like the new Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Shodown, hell yeah i'm pissed off that we got close to zero customisation options even with the DLC, the lack of rollback netcode is infuriating, where are the solo modes ? Quest / Kumite ? It's cool we got a graphical overhaul and never before I have hoped VF would come back again, time passes and the more I wait, the more I want in return from one of my two favorites franchises, that being said I'm glad that new players try the game, hoping for more down the line, and in the end it's all that matter.
How many other games are just dead and will never have a second chance? Bloody roar, Syphon Filter, Splinter Cell, Socom, Burnout, Driveclub...
