Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus, also known as Ninja Gaiden Σ2 Plus, is an updated port of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 for the PlayStation Vita. It was released in Japan on February 28, 2013.

Like the previous Vita port, Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus features the Hero difficulty setting, which allows Ryu to automatically block, dodge, and have access to infinite ninpo when he is low on health.

In addition, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus introduces two new modes, Ninja Race and Turbo. In Ninja Race mode Ryu races toward a goal, grabbing items for a speed boost and chaining kills to increase his attack power. Turbo mode has players going through Chapters at high-speed.


Nina Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus was announced at a private event in Tokyo by Yosuke Hayashi, head of Team Ninja. In a later interview with the official Playstation Blog[1], Hayashi stated that Team Ninja was "looking to add in some really good additional hardcore elements – things that people who really know the game and loved Sigma 2 will get into and enjoy."

The official Japanese website[2] later revealed that the game would feature the Hero difficulty mode from the first PlayStation Vita port along with several new modes.
