Hiiii, Rachel. …say it wrong, and she'll split your head open with an axe the size of Wisconsin. Maybe you should just bow or something.
According to Kotaku , Rachel will be the third playable character in Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 , which means the top-heavy blonde can be fully under your control. Of course, this shouldn't come as any real surprise to fans of the franchise, 'cuz she was playable in the original Sigma , too. But initially, Tecmo wouldn't confirm her as playable and we were only left with the hint that "maybe" they'd include her again. We do know that you'll also be able to play as the purple-haired ninja, Ayane, and we have no problem whatsoever with two females in Sigma 2 . We could make some sort of 2-on-1 joke with Ryu tossed in there somewhere, but we figure that's well beneath us and not worthy of such a classy site. …you know, the same site that often goes out of its way to treat its readers with shameless pics of females every now and then. 'cough' Anyway, we really can't wait for Sigma 2 , which is scheduled to arrive later this year. We're super huge fans of the NG franchise and it can tide us over until God of War III in March (confirmed at Sony's press conference).
Really, the more straight-up action games, the better. That's just how we see things.
