Oh yes!!! I thought my favourite series of all time was dead, but it's coming back! Yessssss!!! FUCK YEAH!! Master Ninja 3 here I come!
Ninja Gaiden 3 Officially On The Way From Team Ninja
" I hate to say it, but really all the Sigma games highlighted was oatmealface is a super key element into the series working and that a lot of Team Ninja people don't seem to "get it" if Sigma 2 is any indication of the direction this game will be headed. Other M stinking it up doesn't exactly restore faith in them either. "So...polishing the busted aspects and adding more content onto the existing package somehow made the game worse than the original version of Ninja Gaiden II?
Nice! Ninja Gaiden 1 and 2 are way up on my list, next to Jedi Knight 2 and Arkham Asylum (do not confuse this with my FAVORITE games, they are good games, but Sonic The Hedgehog 2 is still my favorite game). I've secretly been praying for some more Ninja Gaiden. I wonder if they'll put even more crazy weapons in this time!
I share the same sentiment.
" Without Itagaki I don't know. They won't risk too many changes, so they'll probably copy/paste NG2, give it a little polish, new stages and call it a day. "
While I played the hell out of Sigma 2 (couldn't play Ninja Gaiden 2 cause I don't own a 360), I kinda felt the game was toned down after beating Master Ninja Level since it relied way too much on certain moves with invincible frames that kinda removed the unique balanced difficulty that I experienced with Ninja Gaiden: Black. I just hope they put back the formula that Itagaki used during his time of development which is what made the Ninja Gaiden series such a great action title.
Though the new Team Ninja director says that "Ninja Gaiden 3 is a numbered title. We're developing it with the idea of restarting at the beginning, saying 'We'd like to make an action game that's most interesting for the current era.' With this meaning, it's going to be a game that's not bound by the past more than necessary. Of course, we will be valuing the past, but, in a good meaning, we'd like to make it into a game that's not tied down by the past."
I don't know if it will be a day 1 purchase based on my experience with Sigma & Sigma 2. Though I enjoyed both of those games, its just not the same as the thrilling experience of Ninja Gaiden: Black in the original Xbox.
