Co-op will be a great addition to this game. I loved Ninja Gaiden on the original Xbox and the updated Sigma on PS3 was excellent but I have to admit that I didn't think Ninja Gaiden 2 was a patch on the original - although I still haven't finished it.

The first Ninja Gaiden got the PS3 treatment and they made it even harder than the 360 game, so I hope they don't do the same with the PS3 version of 2.

Nice to have all the extras, even if it does mean waiting ages.

That would be a great game to play through with a friend. I still haven't played the first Ninja Gaiden yet but now this is coming to the PS3 I might keep an eye out for it.
