Ninja Gaiden director founds Itagaki Games and wants to return to work with Xbox brand
Tomonobu Itagaki, dad Dead or alive and director of Ninja Gaiden’s rebirth, is back. He himself expressed it thus in his personal facebook account, but since facts are worth more than words, his ide a materialized with the creation of his own study
This enthusiasm led him to throw an ode to the xbox, to see if the glove is recovered. Itagaki participated in a special Bloomberg on the xbox birthday, because it has been linked to the brand, with the development of titles such as Dead or Alive 3. In a still unpublished interview that he mentioned for this medium, on the question of working again with Xbox, this has commented that it would be an honor, and to what extent the portal collects Video games, he added the following: “I would start over with questions I asked Seamus Blackley (original Xbox designer) twenty years ago. At the time I asked him, are you sure you beat the PS2? and he said, “Yes.” The Xbox is called Project Midway and I will gain supremacy with it. “
That’s why I trusted him and created Xbox exclusive games for about ten years. It’s been 20 years since, and I started my own company, Itagaki Games, which is neither Tecmo nor Valhalla. I know Microsoft is still aggressive. If you approach me it will be an honor for me “, Itagaki added. Of course, the development of a new title in the Ninja Gaiden saga would be a bombshell for gamers, coupled with the Xbox brand’s relentless search for new partners and studios in its Japanese expansion.
Recall that the 53-year-old Japanese designer has given up Valhalla game studios in 2017, a team he founded after leaving Team Ninja. After developing Devil’s Third’s failure as a director, he leaves his studio and devotes himself to teaching his working techniques to students, but it looks like Tomonobu Itagaki is ready for a new adventure: “For four years I have been teaching work to third year students, but now I want to remake a game and I have just started a business for this purpose.”.
