How to skip the intro videos in Ninja Gaiden Master Collection on PC

Ninja Gaiden Master Collection includes the three titles that originally came out on consoles only. This is a great way for players to experience the brutally difficult hack n slash series on their PC, or modern consoles. While the collection includes the Sigma versions of these games, it’s still better than nothing. Sadly, the ports of these games have been extremely disappointing on PC. Basic features like changing resolution have to be done using launch commands. If you want to skip the intro videos in Ninja Gaiden Master Collection, here is how you can do that.

Due to the quality of these ports, the collection has a “Mostly Positive” rating on Steam. This is because outside of the technical issues, there’s still a lot of fun to be had with these, and the series has aged well for the most part. KOEI TECMO’s PC ports have been a hit and miss over the past few years, and we covered issues in both Nioh 2 and Atelier Ryza 2.

Skip the intro videos in Ninja Gaiden Master Collection

Since this is a collection, and you have to individually install each title, we will break the guide up for each game. There’s no way to do it in the third entry however, so we will be focusing on the first two titles.

NINJA GAIDEN Σ

To skip the videos in NINJA GAIDEN Σ, follow the steps below.

  • Head over to where the game is installed
    • Open Steam, and navigate to your library
    • Here, find NINJA GAIDEN Σ, and right-click on it
    • Click on Manage, and then Browse local files
NINJA GAIDEN Σ will show up in your Steam library like this

  • Here, navigate to the following folders
databin\movie\
  • Now, delete the ninja_vi.wmv file (or rename it)
  • You can also delete the ninja_gaiden.wmv file, which is the initial story cutscene

That’s all you have to do for NINJA GAIDEN Σ.

NINJA GAIDEN Σ2

For this, we’ll follow similar steps.

  • Head over to where the game is installed
    • Open Steam, and navigate to your library
    • Here, find NINJA GAIDEN Σ2, and right-click on it
    • Click on Manage, and then Browse local files

  • Here, navigate to the following folders

  • Here, delete the ninja_vi.wmv file as well

That’s all you need to do in both games to skip past the intro videos. We hope the state of KOEI TECMO ports can get better in the future, and Nioh 2 is one of the better examples.
