August 9, 2007 - Eidos is prepping the first of three downloadable content packs for Ninja Gaiden Sigma ready for September 13 in Europe. This initial pack adds a new Survival mode to the list of game options.
Unsurprisingly, Survival mode is a battle-orientated portion of the game that sees you fighting against an endless stream of bad guys. Developer Tecmo and publisher Eidos are planning to release three themed battles within Surival mode over the coming months and each has its own World Ranking leaderboard so you can show off to your mates.
September 13 sees the release of the first themed fight called Weapon Master. Here you're tasked with scrapping through five sections with a limited array of weapons. The aim is to master the unique features of each one and take out as many enemies as possible.
Tecmo is then following up this DLC with a second pack called Speed Master, where your goal is to beat baddies accurately and quickly. Finally, the third download is Rachel Master. This sees you playing as new female fighter Rachel in a bid to become the "World's No. 1 Fiend Hunter".
Eidos has yet to specify when Speed Master and Rachel Master will be made available.
