The Ninja Gaiden action series has been around for countless years, but recently it became really quiet despite all tradition. How is the future of the franchise actually going?
Can fans of the traditional action series Ninja Gaiden look forward to a new part again, now that there hasn’t been a new title for years? Developer Team Ninja in the person of Fumihiko Yasuda has now taken up this question.
Yasuda was supported by colleagues from VideoGamesChronicle raised on the subject. The director and producer of the Nioh series doesn’t necessarily give Ninja Gaiden fans high hopes for a new game: “There are really no plans for it at the moment, although I always wanted to make a new offshoot within the series myself. So there is continue to hope! “
At least in the short to medium term, the topic of a new Ninja Gaiden should be off the table, which by the way also applies to the Nioh series. According to Yasuda, the story “came to an end” with Nioh 2: Complete Edition. And further: “The plot has reached a good point where all loose endings have been resolved, so there are currently no plans for a further sequel. Of course, something like this is still possible in the future, but we will only get to that later Think about the timing. “
Last year, Team Ninja said in an interview that they are quite willing to make a new part of the Ryu Hayabusa saga, but this plan has obviously not manifested itself to date. After all: In Hong Kong at least in September an entry for a Ninja Gaiden Trilogy for PS4 and Switch was seen, so old titles could celebrate a corresponding comeback. If this succeeds, maybe there will be a completely new Ninja Gaiden.
