Ninja Gaiden II was said to be the last game of it’s franchise. Tomonobu Itagaki, who owned the franchise, stated that. But the franchise is now out of his hands. So what becomes of that statement? Is there a possibility for a new Ninja Gaiden sequel?
Yosuke Hayashi, the new Team Ninja lead, hinted towards a sequel if there was a high enough demand for it. He says, regardless of what was said before, what the consumers want is what will be made. If the consumers want a new Ninja Gaiden game, there is a possibility that Team Ninja will deliver such a game. Hopefully, the game won’t come out a cruddy, rushed, over milked game.
Hiyashi says that he feels as if him, and the rest of the team, is in the position to be able to say that they want to push the franchise further. To provide entertainment for the action gamers and fans a like. So most likely, there will be a new Ninja Gaiden game to be made. But I don’t think the game will be as good as it’s predecessors. I personally think that’s it for the Ninja Gaiden series, I’m afraid of them over milking the series into something it’s not. But I don’t know, it is Team Ninja, they may be able to make another success as they have before. I have my eyes on other games though, such as God of War III.
