The Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection PC port looks rough as a dog

Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection collects two of the finest hack-and-slash games ever made, plus Ninja Gaiden 3, and releases tomorrow on Steam. Fans’ delight at the port’s announcement was soon followed by the disappointment that the versions of the first two games being ported were the Sigma versions: later versions that few feel improved upon Ninja Gaiden Black or 2. But it gets worse…

In the run-up to release the game’s Steam page has been updated, and there are some amazing scenes. Fancy changing the resolution? Of course you do, let’s just pop into the options menu and… wait, what?

“To configure the resolution, open the game’s Properties from your Steam Library. By entering ‘720p’, ‘1080p’, or ‘4k’ in the text field of ‘LAUNCH OPTIONS’, you can fix the resolution to the corresponding value. By setting the game to a low resolution, you can reduce the processing load.”

Yep, this is a $50 PC port. It may even be making some of you nostalgic: there was a time when most big-name PC ports from Japanese developers turned up in this kind of state. As we all know, however, a real ninja would recompile the kernel and then the game.
