4K compatible with Yane and Kasumi can be operated!Super speed ninja act "Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection"
The high -speed ninja action "NINJA GAIDEN: Master Collection" is scheduled to be released for Steam/PlayStation 4/Xbox One/Nintendo Switch by Koei Tecmo Games on June 10.
This time, GAME*SPARK has given the opportunity to play prior to the release, so we will deliver a PC version of the play report.
What is "Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection"?
What do you think of when you say "ninja"?A spy that specializes in stealth?A warrior who fights stylishly with Kunai and shuriken?Is it a thing that handles ninjutsu by kneading a chakra?
The "Ninja Gaiden" series is a work that revives the "Ninja Ryuken Den" series, which ended in 1995, as a 3D action game.It is a popular series that has shipped more than 6.8 million copies to date.
"NINJA GAIDEN: Master Collection" allows you to enjoy three works: Ninja Gaiden σ, Ninja Gaiden σ2, and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge, which are such immortal masterpieces.
Whatever you hide, I played the "Ninja Gaiden" series, including "Ninja Ryuken Den".The only thing I knew in advance was that there was a playable character from the "Dead Oya Live" series in our own collaboration.I still have no idea what kind of game it is, but let's play it for each work and check it out!
"Ninja Gaiden σ"
Come on, it started.A man falls down in the mountains where the autumn leaves are down.First of all, Air Assassin is a bass from the air from behind.And the operation starts so that it flows.There was no time to fascinate the scenery, and enemies reinforced.
The weapons mainly handled by the main character of this work, Ryu Hayabusa, are not Kunai or Shuriken.With his father's "Dragon Sword", he cuts his enemy with Bassabassa.Of course, a ninja shuriken can also be used as a long -range weapon, but it was unlikely to be expected to defeat the enemy.
By the way, after defeating the enemies reinforcements, we will climb the mountains toward the next destination.The road to go is not easy to cut the cliff.But there is a ninja.Cliff climbing is a hand.You can make an acrobatic movement endlessly, such as wall running and wall kicks.
I arrived at the ninja mansion.Here, enemy assassins and various Karakuri are waiting for Ryu Hayabusa.And to go ahead, you have to solve a simple puzzle element.
Finally the top floor of the mansion.It is a boss battle of Omachikane.Standing is Ryu Hayabusa's uncle, Kageichi Murai (CV).Galaxy Manager).I have a voice like a last boss from the beginning.
Here, let's check the system of this work again.The player character has a parameter of "physical strength" and "energy", and when the physical strength reaches 0, the game is over.By consuming energy, you can activate a powerful ninja method.
Many actions are implemented, and you can get a strong attack by obtaining a "secret book" on the way.
Now, let's return to the boss battle.To be honest, it was the first boss and I thought it would be easy to win.However, I felt a bit in the battle so far ...This game has a strong enemy.Before playing this work, I was imagining that I was kicking the enemy of the Koei Tecmo Games development in the "Musou" series and running around the battlefield.But it was actually a little different.To put it simply, is each small fish enemy like a "warlord"?It is very troublesome because it will be a guard and avoids it.In that case, the strength of the boss will not be difficult to imagine.
The hero who shakes the sword, the middle of the autumn mountain, the stage of Chapter 1.I played this work from these two, and I associated with "SEKIRO: Shadows Die TWICE".In a sense, it is easier than "SEKIRO".However, you can enjoy a solid bone action.Is he a bit hard but not disgusting?It's just the right salt plum.
In the story, Chapter 1 ends when the boss is defeated.After this, the story developed rapidly in Chapter 2 and 3.And it still continues.
As the story progresses, the genie hunter "Rachel", which also appears in the "Dead Oya Live" series, can be operated as a player character.In addition to the story mode, you can also play "SURVIVALS", which fights under limited conditions, and "Shinobi Road" where you can play mission scenes divided by level.
"Ninja Gaiden σ2"
By the way, next, I will play "Ninja Gaiden σ2" which was released as a full version in 2009.This work will be released five years later from Ninja Gaiden, but I was very surprised at its evolution.
First of all, the stage that was shocked was to play in Chapter 1.At this time, I thought that the era was set at the medieval at this time because I played only in the early stage of the previous work.However, when you open the lid, the sight spreads in front of you is a flock of skyscrapers.It also fuses with Japanese -style architecture, not just a skyscraper.
The aerial garden on the high floor of the building and the five -storied pagoda that suddenly grows.Is this "Neo Tokyo"?
The story begins with the scene where the heroine and CIA's agent, Sonia, visit in the annual antique shop "Muramasa".She came to Tokyo to know the conspiracy of the revival of the evil god and convey it to Ryu Hayabusa.
However, Sonia is suddenly captured after being attacked.
And Ryu Hayabusa struggles to rescue Sonia in the dark skyscrapers.
There is no exaggeration to say that the battle surface is a legal evolution from the previous work.The effects are more beautiful, the combo is diverse and flashy, and even limb -deficient expressions are added.
With the addition of limb deficiency, it has become possible to stab a new system from "Ninja Gaiden 2" with a dedicated motion to enemies that have missed a part of the limbs.
By the way, if you are going to destroy the enemy for a while, the sound will suddenly resonate.Looking back, there is a huge shadow there.
This is the first boss battle.Hitting and grabbing that makes use of the huge body.When approaching, it is tremendous.In addition, I suspected that this was the first boss, such as removing the pillars of light from the ground and being exposed to mysterious light rays.
However, the market is determined that such a huge guy usually attacks his hands.Combined with the pause while selecting recovery items from this work, I was able to remove it stably.
And after the boss battle, the viewpoint moves to a Buddha statue like Tamon Ten.
Does this always move ...!?As I approached while being nervous, I seemed to be able to get the weapon that the Buddha statue had in my hand.Was good…….
Although it was only in the early stages, this work had a lower impression compared to "Ninja Gaiden σ".Although the strength of the enemy does not change much, it may be because of the fact that this attack motion has been born.
Furthermore, in this work, Ryu Hayabusa and Rachel will continue to play as a playable character.Of course, the costume can also be changed.
In addition to the main mode, "NINJYA RACE", which competes for clearing with your favorite characters, "Tag Missions", which takes tags with computers to challenge the mission, and even the day before the day before this work, you can learn about the day before this work.It boasts a considerable volume, such as being able to watch the movie.
"Ninjaga Den 3: Lazu R's E -Dge"
This work is a version upgrade version of "Ninja Gaiden 3" released in 2012.This time, Hayabusa headed in London, the capital of the UK.A mysterious group was a hostage and armed uprising.
First of all, Hayabusa shows free fall from Big Ben like an Eagle Dive.And just QTE (quick -time event) behind the enemy.I failed because I didn't expect it, and the button notation displayed with the PS4 controller used was different.I'm sorry for the lazy landing ...
The enemy character of this stage dresses in military uniforms and attacks firearms and swords.And strong.It is an impression that it is clearly stronger than "Ninja Gaiden σ2".The frequency of avoidance and guards is high, and if you want to put a long combo, you will be stabbed from the side.If you notice, the HP is just barely.I will catch my pocket to try recovery, but there is no recovery item.
Yes, the recovery item is abolished in this work.As a result, it is no longer possible to push the recovery that has been made so far.So how do you overcome the battle without recovery items?That's where the new system from "NINJA GAIDEN 3" appeared.A pone is a counter technique that occurs when the enemy launches a strong attack.It is also effective for the enemy's troublesome attack and is not prevented.Once it occurs, the next strong attack will always be a pone, so it is possible to defeat the enemy in a chain.
The most nice thing is that your physical strength is restored at the end of the bone.In this work, which has limited means of recovery, I would like to aim if there is a gap.Other recovery means, ninja recovery, but it took time to accumulate energy, so I didn't rely on it.
In this work, QTE occurs at every timing.When avoiding missiles that have flew.When you avoid rubble.And there are a wide variety of things, such as when a special attack is activated.If you fail, you may be over the game, and there are many such scenes, so I learned the button arrangement of the Xbox controller for this ...
Finally, we arrive at the official residence where the hostage will be captured.However, what was waiting there was a mysterious man with a mask.
The battle starts.Of course, the boss of this work is also insanely good.Since the combo is not decided, we will add damage to the gap after the enemy's attack.However, the enemy's original attack power is high.If you hit the enemy and attack, the HP will be erased ...
Since the retry was repeated too much, the system asked me, "Is it okay?It's a kind design.
Hayabusa who defeats it after struggle.However, the masked man, who seemed to have defeated, cursed the right arm of Hayabusa called "Slaughter Bad Hands".It is a terrible curse that gradually rot from his right arm to the whole body and die.And the masked man declared war all over the world.Can Hayabusa solve the curse and save the world?
In addition to Ryu Hayabusa, the playable character of this work, Ayane, autumn leaves, and Kasumi appeared.It can be used in "Chapter Challenge" and "Ninja Trials", and Ayane also has a dedicated story.
You can see precious design drawings, storyboards of stories, and detailed illustrations of weapons and stages as a designer comment and a set.
You can enjoy the world view of "NINJA GAIDEN", which is more than 70 pages, with more than 180 songs recorded.
"Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection" has been played so far."Ninja Gaiden σ" is a high -speed action, but it is a tension that dies as soon as he is careless.As for the latter two works, it is also nice to have a "hero mode" that makes it easier to fight for players who want to concentrate on the story.
"NINJA GAIDEN σ2" would have been a more specialized in battle by cutting the mystery solving element from the previous work.The number of playable characters increases to four people, and you can enjoy the essence of the series.
"Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge" has deepened the immersion in the story with the appearance of QTE.While keeping the action as it is, it is a challenging one, such as abolishing recovery items and adding systems.
Nostalgic and high -speed actions that do not fade are finally revived on the current machine in correspondence with 4K drawing.If you were worried, but if you were not expanding your PC, why not try playing this opportunity?タイトル：【NINJA GAIDEN: マスターコレクション】対応機種：PC（Steam）/Xbox One/PlayStation 4/ニンテンドースイッチ記事におけるプレイ機種：PC発売日：2021年6月10日記事執筆時の著者プレイ時間：4時間価格：通常版 パッケージ版／ダウンロード版：各 4,950円 デラックスエディション版（ダウンロード版専売）：6,050円※4K解像度でのプレイには、PlayStation 4/PlayStation 5/Xbox One X/Xbox Series X/Xbox Series S/Steamで条件を満たした動作環境で、互換性のあるテレビまたはディスプレイが必要となります。NINJA GAIDEN:マスターコレクション 【CEROレーティング「Z」】 (初回生産限定特典(特製リバーシブルジャケット仕様) 同梱)
