Tecmo President: New Team NINJA Targeting The West

Yasuda, the president of Tecmo, announced to Bloomberg Japan today that Team NINJA with it's new leader has been appointed to work on a big budget title game with a new genre, and is expected to be completed next year.

With the absence of Itagaki, the team has taken on a new motto for game development, "New Title, New Genre, New Location, New Leader".

Team NINJA's new game will not follow Tecmo's past game genres like Fighting, Action, or Horror Adventure; instead they will focus on a brand new genre and focus on targeting the western audience, though details can not be disclosed at this time...

Since the names were not correctly translated by Google Translate, the new leaders (there are two of them) of Team NINJA are Jin Hasegawa (Project Manager/CG Team Leader in various Fatal Frame projects) and Yousuke Hayashi (Director for Ninja Gaiden Sigma).

I wouldn't necessarily say that. True the new team might not have the same magic, but Yousuke Hayashi knows what he's doing. He was the director of Ninja Gaiden Sigma on PS3 and is very open to developing on platforms outside the 360. In his own words regarding the early days of the PS3, "it doesn't matter how small of an install base there is. There is STILL an install base." I respect this guy and give him the single credit for bringing Ninja Gaiden to another console and delivering so well. Maybe people disagree with me, but Ninja Gaiden Sigma remains one of my all time fave PS3 games.
