Team Ninja dropped first word of these Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 details on the PlayStation blog on Friday, but today we have received official word from Tecmo.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, the enhanced PS3 port of Xbox 360 action/adventure Ninja Gaiden 2, will be out in North America on September 29th, with launches in Japan and Europe to follow thereafter. In addition to the standard $59.99 version, Tecmo will also offer a $70 Collector’s Edition package and a pre-order character costume download exclusively via GameStop. The CE will come with an 80-page book containing the following content:

* A 30-page Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 prologue comic written and designed by Team NINJA. The comic is a printed version of the in-game digital comic.

* Mini-Strategy Guide: A starter guide covering Ryu, Ayane, Momiji, and Rachel’s weapons, ninpos, Story Mode basics, Team Missions and more.

* Art Gallery: A peek at various character concept artwork.

* Commentary from Team NINJA producer Yosuke Hayashi and lead artists.

And finally, Tecmo has outlined the Team Mission co-op mode new to Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2. It’ll allow two players to hook up online and complete over 30 different missions together (solo players will also be able to partner up with a CPU teammate for offline play). You’ll also be able to record your Team Mission experiences with “Ninja Cinema” and share them over PSN.
