Ninja Gaiden Will Return Eventually, Team Ninja Suggests

Hiding in the shadows.

Ninja Gaiden on the Xbox was an incredible game, made even better by the Ninja Gaiden Black re-release. Ninja Gaiden 2 on the Xbox 360 is not quite as good, but it’s still an accomplished action game. Since then, however, it’s been all downhill for the franchise, with Ninja Gaiden 3 and especially Ninja Gaiden Z disappointing one and all alike with their ill conceived and poor gameplay.

With Team Ninja now shifting to working on the eagerly anticipated Nioh, is this the end of the line for Ninja Gaiden? Apparently not, according to Team Ninja creative director Tom Lee, who told USGamer that the franchise could return at some point in the future.

“Maybe I can say that Nioh is a gateway into the next chapter for Ninja Gaiden. [Ninja Gaiden] is a very important, if not the most important franchise, for us. But at this point I think this franchise needs to be in the shadows for a while until we bring it back. There will be a time, and when the time is right, we will bring it back.” 

I can just hope that Ninja Gaiden 4, or whatever the next entry is called, turns out to be good. Team Ninja seem to be hitting their stride again, however, so I remain hopeful, in spite of how poor the last few entries weren

    Pleas bring this back! My man Itagaki left after NG2, so obviously his presence was supremely missed. I’d love for Phil to get Itagaki and/or Team Ninja to do a sequel. Was the best slasher I ever played period

    Personally I love ninja gaiden 3,

      I’ll repeat this from above, Ninja Gaiden 3 was a let down but Razor’s edge was great. Unfortunately,
      it had the stigma of Ninja Gaiden 3 attached otherwise on it’s own, it
      was solid and held up to the level of Ninja Gaiden 2 even. I think to
      say that the series completely went downhill after NG2 is an
      understatement.

      Razor’s Edge was good and the multiplayer was/is slept on.

    • Arkham Ninja

      Hopefully they employ some of the experience they’ve gotten with NiOh in there. Not saying make a full souls style NG though.

  • Gamaskot

    Ninja Gaiden is one of the few franchises that actually offered a challenge. Content creators have been appealing to casuals for more than a decade and diluting the difficulty so much that it is none existing and removes the fun of a challenge.

    Don’t nerf the skill level. Bring on Path of the Master Ninja.
