Koei Tecmo has announced that the Ninja Gaiden Master Collection is coming to Xbox Game Pass for console and PC.

From June 2nd, you’ll be able to enjoy one of the most iconic tactical hack and slash series there ever was. Honestly, I’ve you’ve never played this series before then you’re in for a treat. Granted the third game isn’t great, especially compared to the first two, but it’s still fun, nonetheless.

To bring you up to speed with this series, here are the details from the Koei Tecmo press release:

NINJA GAIDEN Sigma (originally released in 2007): Vengeance is born. The greater fiend Doku, sent by the Vigoor Empire to obtain the Dark Dragon Blade, decimates Hayabusa village. Young Ryu Hayabusa sets out to avenge his clan and to take back the fallen blade from the evil empire.

NINJA GAIDEN Sigma 2 (originally released in 2009): Hayabusa faces off against the Supreme Ninja Overlord, Genshin, and his Black Spider Ninja Clan in their attempt to steal the Demon Statue that has been protected by his father for generations. Hayabusa ventures around the world on a quest to retrieve the Demon Statue as he cuts down all greater fiends in his path to ultimately destroy the Archfiend.

NINJA GAIDEN 3 Razor’s Edge (originally released in 2012): A mysterious alchemist, the Regent of the Mask, places a deadly curse on Hayabusa, as the Dragon Sword is absorbed into his arm causing great pain and suffering. While he struggles with his curse, the Regent intends to destroy the world within 7 days – meaning Hayabusa must overcome his agonising fate to stop the Regent and save the world.

In my review of the Ninja Gaiden Master Collection, I said: “whether you’re a returning fan or new to this series, the Ninja Gaiden Master Collection offers some of the best hack and slash games out there, even after all these years.
