Ninja Gaiden 3 goes Double Agent

May 17, 2009 Written by Dan Massi


Tomonobu Itagaki, who was formerly in charge of Team Ninja, previously stated that Ninja Gaiden II would be the final entry in the series. However, Yosuke Hayashi, the new leader of Team Ninja, has confirmed that the Ninja Gaiden series will continue. Sorry, Itagaki.

When talking with Hayashi, Kikizo asked about the future of the series, in which he replied:

“We will continue to work towards a future for the series. What the gamers are looking for is going to be the next chapter – the future of an outstanding series. We feel that we’re in a position of being able to make that call… That calling is already there – we feel it”.

Hayashi also talked about the next installment being multi-platform:

“We’re going to have to push ourselves to the next level, and we are better off giving both audiences an entirely new game.”

So what would you like to see in the next Ninja Gaiden game? Any issues or complaints you hope the new director fixes with part 3? Let us know in the comment section below!
