Eidos picks up Ninja Gaiden Sigma

Tomb Raider studio to handle European publishing duties for Tecmo's PS3 slash-'em-up

Tomb Raider powerhouse Eidos is to publish Tecmo's Ninja Gaiden Sigma in Europe, which is currently pencilled in for release sometime this summer.

Sigma is essentially a prettier PS3 update of 2005's excellent Xbox entry Ninja Gaiden Black, expanded with dual-sword combat and the lovely Rachel as a playable character.

"This is a really exciting opportunity for Eidos and Tecmo. Ninja Gaiden is one of the most respected game franchises around and now we have the opportunity to bring Ninja Gaiden Sigma to PS3 consumers throughout Europe," said Jane Cavanagh, Chief Executive, Eidos.
