Ninja Gaiden is one of the classic franchises out there. The first-ever Ninja Gaiden game was released in October 1988 and with the latest installment, Yaiba Ninja Gaiden Z released back in March 2014. It’s been almost seven years with no news until now.
Team Ninja is a small part of Tecmo Corporation who developed games including Dead or Alive 5 and Ninja Gaiden. Nioh 2 game director, Fumihiko Yasuda, revealed that Team Ninja wants to make another Ninja Gaiden game and will share good news one day.
“The core members of the team that worked on Ninja Gaiden want to make a new game,” said Yasuda. “We are aware that some fans wanted Ninja Gaiden more than Nioh 2. Now we see a lot of ninja games like [Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice] as well, and we see a lot of good inspirations in those games, so we hope to deliver some good news one day.”
The last official Ninja Gaiden (Ninja Gaiden 3) was released in 2012 and since then, we haven’t received any official release in this franchise. Are you excited about a new Ninja Gaiden game? Let us know in the comments!
