I really hate dumb statements like these: "japanese games industry is dead in the water" and stuff like that, cuz you know what? Same can be said about western AAA industry, looking at it each year with the same games getting sequels and shooters tells me its pretty stagnant.

When I watched the recent trailer for this game, the absolute last thing to cross my mind was "this is just what the japanese games industry needs".

More like a poor mans deadpool. Watching this trailer made me soo dissapointed and depressed how far Ninja Gaiden has dropped in quality since Itagkaki left. Team Ninja has no idea what they're doing anymore.

There will be a revival but it wont be from this game.

And i find it funny that Infune talks about it being over in the east then hand picks a western dev for his spinoff.
