Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2: Ryu and Momiji co-op video

Set to drop at the end of September for PS3 is Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, Tecmo’s latest. If you’re hot for that, you’ll probably be hot for the limited cooperative action to be included in the game.

We say “limited” because you’ll only do the co-op thing in special missions. Watch in our video below as Ryu is joined by Momiji for an example of this. Because of the crazy-assed dynamic camera of NGS2, poor Momiji is left playing caught up. Seriously: you don’t even see her half the time. Oh, and she dies and has to be revived mid-battle. Of course, dying is nothing new to Ninja Gaiden.

Stick around past the halfway point and you’ll witness an epic battle with an over-the-top co-op magic attack. This all looks great, save for the stupidly long loading time early in the video.
