We caught up with Team Ninja head Yosuke Hayashi during the Tokyo Game Show for a quick chat about Dead or Alive 5 and Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, the studio's upcoming collaboration with Keiji Inafune's Comcept.

The story is too old to be commented.

well in any game where you are trying to please everyone its just not gonna work out. Look at RE6 capcom is trying to please everyone who like old style RE games or more of RE4 gameplay which is slow

when making the game target your largest audience and make the best game possible and give it a lot of content, that way even if a small percentage of your fanbase isn't happy when they will see how good the game is they will buy it to play it. And because of above average reviews many new fans will pick it up saying its a high quality title

please your core fanbase and everyone else will tag along if the game is good. But if your core fanbase isn't happy than you lost a big chunk of your sales

Can hayashi / team ninja stick with their root, which is making games with crazy difficulties and great gameplay?

I mean look at NG 3. Thats the result for catering casual gamer and right now they fix / change the gameplay like NG 2, add ayane, and release it exclusively for wiiU. Its like they giving a middle finger to all fans who bought NG 3 for ps3/360 -_-

Thank you! I keep saying that but nobody seems to pay attention.

NG3 was an experiment. Having an actual story was nice but nobody liked the gameplay alterations. Team Ninja has now seen that casuals wouldn't buy an NG game anyways so now they'll just look at their fanbase and try to keep them happy like Dynasty Warriors does.

F*** new fans if your current base is keeping you alive and well! Just please that group!
