21 Best Ninja Gaiden Master Collection Mods

What are the best Ninja Gaiden Master Collection mods? That’s as challenging as the game itself. The release of the Master Collection made the series accessible for gamers who haven’t had the chance to try the originals. And it feels great to see newcomers discovering this amazing franchise.

Similar to several vibrant hack-and-slash titles like Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and Devil May Cry 5, Ninja Gaiden is a potent name in the genre. It’s over-the-top incredible with fast-paced gameplay and a badass ninja character. While the release of such a collection has cast a bit of hope for Koei Tecmo to make a proper fourth entry, some fans felt that this compilation lacked something. One such example is the elimination of blood in Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 considering it’s a remastered version of the original Ninja Gaiden 2 released exclusively on the Xbox 360.

Such a move made modders unite to bring various major aspects that made the series a blast to go through, and also introduce new outfits, characters and more. All of which makes the experience much better. Without further ado, Here are some of the best Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection mods.

Alternative Blood for Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2

Ninja Gaiden 2 on the Xbox 360 is undoubtedly one of the most brutal games to ever exist. However, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 censored the blood in exchange for a purple-like colour when executing your enemies.

Dead or Alive’s Tina for Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor’s Edge

Seeing Tina’s outfit mod from Dead or Alive makes us wish for more characters in the DOA universe to make an appearance in future Ninja Gaiden series. Tina Armstrong, Helena Douglas, Hayate and Jann Lee are one of the few that would do great as guest characters in Ninja Gaiden.
