As promised a little under a month ago, Tecmo has thrust a demo of Ninja Gaiden Sigma onto the US and Japanese PlayStation 3 Stores.

The demo features the first level of the full game, runs in 1080p resolution and is stocked with new weapons and combos, according to Tecmo, which should give both existing fans and newcomers something to take interest in.

The full game's due out in Europe from Eidos this summer, although the publisher recently admitted that there are no current plans to bring a special-edition version - due out in the US - to the UK.

There's currently no word on when the UK PS3 Store will see the Sigma demo, with Sony unable to clarify last time we asked.

Meanwhile, US PS3 owners can also check out a demo of the frankly wonderful Virtua Tennis 3, or um and aah their way through trailers for Gauntlet II, The Wheelman, John Woo's Stranglehold and The Godfather.

Virtua Tennis 3 is out now on PS3 as well as Xbox 360, although those of you who want multiplayer gaming and have the choice of both consoles might want to opt for the 360 version - both run in heavenly 1080p, but only the latter offers online multiplay.
