Euro Ninja Gaiden demo iffy

Sony unable to clarify.

Unfortunately us Europeans will have to sit and watch from the sidelines as US and Japanese gamers enjoy a demo for Ninja Gaiden Sigma next month.

You see, Sony Europe still has no idea when we can expect PS3 taster or full game here, telling Eurogamer this afternoon that it was still waiting for information.

Meanwhile Famitsu has announced the demo will be released across North America and Japan on 27th April, ahead of the title's scheduled launch in June.

It is rumoured to include a specially created chapter that won't be in the full game, which will give you access to many of the game's weapons early on.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma is the PlayStation 3 version of the popular shuriken-slinging game for Xbox, Ninja Gaiden: Black. Creator Tecmo recently shouted at the Internet insisting that it was much more than a port.

Apparently the whole package has had an overhaul, from graphics and performance, to content and bouncy boobs.

It should prove itself to be an essential purchase when it eventually makes its way to Europe. Mercilessly attack our Ninja Gaiden Xbox review to see why.
