It looks like Ninja Gaiden is getting its long-rumoured remaster collection, as hope is also rekindled for a Smash Bros. appearance.

Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity isn’t the only new game reveal today from Koei Tecmo, although the one for Ninja Gaiden Trilogy seems to be unintentional.

As spotted on Reddit, listings for the game, on both PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, turned up on the website of a video game distributor in Hong Kong, before promptly being removed again.

The collection was scheduled for March 2021 and includes Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge. The implication is that they’re remasters, although it didn’t actually say one way or the other.

Since it was an unintentional leak it’s perfectly possible the collection could also be released on other formats, including Xbox and PlayStation 5.

Assuming this isn’t all some massive mistake the game’s likely to be officially announced at the Tokyo Game Show, which starts on 24 September.

After the poor reception to Ninja Gaiden 3 and spin-off Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z there hasn’t been a new entry in the series since 2014.

Developer Team Ninja has hinted at plans for a fourth game though and a remaster collection was heavily rumoured last year, while also being connected to suggestions that Ryu Hayabusa would be added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Given how fondly remembered the original NES games are that’s still perfectly plausible, especially as there are still five more DLC fighters to announce and, given the Hyrule Warriors announcement, Koei Tecmo clearly has a close relationship with Nintendo.
