The Ninja Gaiden series has always been a great one, and who has always been there at the helm? None other than video game designer Tomonobu Itagaki. However, now that Itagaki has left developer Team Ninja, fans of the series have been fearing the worst for the series fate. Need not worry though, as Tecmo Koei is expecting Team Ninja to do extremely well with the forthcoming Ninja Gaiden 3.
Tecmo Koei senior managing director Yoshiki Sugiyama recently spoke with website CVG, saying that the company is planning to “nuture” the upcoming-but-not-yet-announced Ninja Gaiden 3.
“Ninja Gaiden is such a beloved and important franchise for us and fans expect such great things from the next instalment that we need to indulge in a little nurturing. If and when we talk about a new Ninja Gaiden, it will be spectacular.”
Ninja Gaiden 3 has not yet been officially announced, but the future of the series has been casually discussed.
