Prior to the holiday break, Sony announced that 25 retail and digital games would be available for the PlayStation Vita when it launches in North America on February 22. Sony pegged an additional 10 games for release within the system's launch window, one of which is Tecmo Koei's Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus.
Tecmo Koei appears to have other plans, as the publisher today promoted its launch window release to launch date release, announcing a February 22 bow for Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus. The game is an update of the 2007 PlayStation 3 release Ninja Gaiden Sigma, which was itself an enhanced version of the 2004 Xbox title Ninja Gaiden.
The PS Vita version of Ninja Gaiden Sigma will, of course, play heavily to the new handheld's technical features, including the touch screen, gyro sensor, and rear touch pad. Other additions to the PS Vita version include the ability to switch between first- and third-person view and gyro-sensor-facilitated targeting.
