"Paul Gale Network has the info straight from Famitsu with Team Ninja's head designer on the Ninja Gaiden 3 project, Yousuke Hayashi."
Oh! one of my favorite action franchies! Looking forward to this VERY much :D We are in DIRE need of a good action game.. considering we lost a really good franchise to a shitty reboot ='(
...but I just hope Team Ninja isn't going to censor themselfs again like they did with Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2.
right. I liked sigma 2 and would regard it as the complete version if it wasn't for the purple mist maiming that was going on. I know the frame rate suffered big time on the 360 when a lot of body parts were on the ground (bought both versions the day they came out) Hey Team Ninja: how about you build a respectable version on the PS3 for once from the ground up that doesn't come out years later? Develop simultaneously for once, so we don't NEED a sigma version! Most of all, take your time to make a decent story line. QUIT THE CRUMMY VOICE ACTING and character names. ( VOLF, the wereWOLF???? really? that's the best you could come up with?)
I hope they don't censor themselves like they did in Sigma 2 by adding (takes deep breath)..... New characters New modes New weapons New difficulty New costumes New enemies Online co-op AND True 720p graphics across the entire game. (breathing fast because from being out of breath) When you consider that Sigma 1 had a new character and Sigma 2 had 3 new characters the Sigma versions seem to be pretty good to me. At this rate Sigma 3 will include Kasumi and Hayate.
They should focus on making a great story for RYU, and not weigh it down with STUPID talking boobs. The only point ANY of the females from the NG games have had is to see boobs. Im sick of it. I want more NG with only ryu, bad ass weapons and crazy monsters to slice up. If they try to add some convoluted story it will fail. People complain when some games dont have the best story, but also complain when it has none. Certain games NEVER need a story of any kind for reviewers, but the NG series is always crapped on for weak story when it doesnt deserve the criticism. Look at DMC, Bayonetta, GOW, DI. Those games dont get criticized for having horrible or unoriginal stories yet NG does because the gamplay of NG SHITS on those games. The story in most games sucks, so I hope reviewers dont hate on this game for having the same problems that are ignored for other games. I have a feeling that the story of NG 3 might suck because they try too hard. I hope Im wring, but Id love a simple story like NG1 and great gameplay. edit-- I love NG and Itagaki, SO I AM SOOOO EXCITED FOR THIS GAME. mY BIGGEST PROBLEM IS THAT I BET IT WILL BE TOO EASY. Itagaki was the one who wanted to make the series soo hard. NG sigma was easy compared to NG 1, so I hope they at least make the harder modes as challenging as the previous NG games.
Perhaps the site itself should have mentioned those games in the subject but according to the guidelines we're only supposed to put in the subject title what the site's subject title was so I didn't modify anything. I guess then I should have added in the "quotation" section that the website has an update on: Dead or Alive - Dimensions As well as some insight into: Dead or Alive Cronus and Project Progressive Lots of action coming out of Team Ninja!
Cancelled games make me a sad panda.
I believe you can adjust an article's title where appropriate. check the submission guidelines. EDIT: nevermind, the Tutorial section gives rules on posting news, "It is only ok to edit the title if the original title does not make sense when posted on another website." you'd have to interpret that pretty liberally to change the title in this instance.
you could clarify in your description paragraph though. again, from the Tutorial: "Description Write a short summary of the information at the source story. You can either quote a paragraph of the source text or write a short summary yourself."
I'm looking forward to anything Ninja Gaiden. My favorite game of all time is NG2! Took me forever to get the dreaded 1000/1000 achievement! I will keep an open mind, but worried it is Hayashi taking over the series direction. He hasn't really done anything worth speaking about...
yep its my favourite hack and slash of all time.^^
I think "Ninja Gaiden 3" will be the best Ninja Gaiden ever! And the best Ninja game ever! bloody and brutal :D
The best Ninja Gaiden is reserved for... Ninja Gaiden Black !! I'm just saying :)
It might be. At least I hope you're right.
I love the series, both the original and the Sigma versions. I got NG Sigma day one, NG2 on 360, and NG2 Sigma on day one. I hope it's at least on PS3 so I can benefit from the controller I find most comfortable (one man's opinion). I honestly hope it's on both platforms so everyone can enjoy it. And regarding this statement made by Hayashi-san: "He suggested that him and his team will pay respect to the previous entries, but really want any action fan to pick this title up and enjoy it for what it is." PLEASE don't water the gameplay and combo system down. The challenge and forced combat styles are what make the games so damn much fun to play. Play the game as the game wants you to play it, or die. Repeatedly. When I first picked up Sigma 1, I slammed my fists in frustration so much my hands hurt for days. Then I made myself learn the combat system and it was much more rewarding. It's like Demon's Souls; don't make something easy to play, make it harder that forces the player to be a better gamer!
So it's back to having blood? If so, I'm interested again. Maybe NG3 will help forget about that tripe aka NGS2 that released a while back.
"They’re still waiting for the right time to announce what platfrom the game is being developed for." Platform, singular? Not another timed job, if so, just make it multiplat from the get go.
Yeah, I was surprised by that. I thought it was going to be multi-plat.
This game will be sooooo badass!
CAN..NOT..WAIT! The part about Ryu's blood. Damn now I have to bust out the magnifying glass. LOL.
From all that blood showering in the last games. It had to happen sooner or later.
I forgot about this game.
This will not be like sh***y DMC Remake but will be def. different from all other NG series. Look @ the Hand of Ryu, its soaked in Blood-Red..and sumthing strange. There will be a gore factor for sure ......And Yes...Bayonetta will have a competition in combat. I want this Game to be more Bad-Ass like the NGB for Xbox (The Highest Rated Hack & Slash) on Planet. Thats all I wanted from this NG III. All the Best Team Ninja (Missin Itagaki...) but still a proven Studio.
but i hope it's not...
I love NG and 3ds looks sweet, but they better make this game for ps3/360, or else they will fail horribly, in my eyes anyways.
this the most game i wanna play before i die,really
I wouldn't mind it for 3DS but a really big and epic action game I think is still best suited for a big screen. It's like movies. Certain ones you don't NEED to watch at the theaters like comedies, romance, and drama. But you NEED to watch action movies in theaters to appreciate all of the special effects get pumped up from the loud noises and so on. This would be a great 3DS game but I want to enjoy it on the big screen.
some of these comments are funny
Pleeeeeeeease show us a trailer before 2011! Effin' bonkers about this game.
So what's wrong with his hand?? Is the finger he pointing up cut short?? Or is his hand mutated as in getting bigger?? I need this game on PS3 Team Ninja!!!
NG2 was too damn difficult, it was kinda unbalanced imo. Still beat it though
....but also interesting to learn more on Dead or Alive Code Cronus, Project Progressive, and Dead or Alive Dimensions. At least Dimensions is still seeing the light of day!
Here's to Dimensions. Now I wonder if this too will be a 3DS title?
Who thinks which will be better? I mean obviously its probably to early to tell cause we haven't even seen any footage on NG3 yet but based off the developers and there track records which has the potential to be better? Or which are you looking forward to more for that matter? I don't know but I can't wait! Glad to know Ninja Gaiden 3 is working out well for Team Ninja though what a relief!
I think Ninja Gaiden 3. DMC and GoW fans will disagree but I think Ninja Gaiden is the best hack'n'slay franchise that's currently out there.
@Ceekay i agree
I agree. Ninja Gaiden is my favorite. It's harder and the combat system is way deeper. DMC has a better combo system though I guess you can argue DMC has a better combat system but I'm not a fan of it. I like NGs fast pace. And GOW is pretty basic in terms of combat, but GOW is all about story and cutscenes and huge moments.
Probably Ninja Gaiden 3, since DMC is developed by Ninja Theory, and we all know what to expect from them...
Ninja Theory vs. Team Ninja Bad-ass Ryu vs. Dante Antoniades I think Ninja Gaiden 3 as well.
The only way to surprise fans (in a very negative way, control the game with one analog only will be hell, plus the game not going above 30fps and not enough polygons to allow mutilations) is to announce it for 3DS. PS3 wouldn't surprise anybody for Hayashi has made two games for console, and the XBOX has quite the history with the series as well. I hope I am wrong, but it's better to hold back my hype until they announce the platform.
Itagaki isnt involved, so who cares about NG3
give us some DOA proper sequel news
I'm worried because Itagaki and almost all key people that made NGB and NGII (the good NG games) are not in Team Ninja anymore...
Looking forward to the release of this game.
ninja gaiden 3 is sick!
He said something odd about the blood. But all I can manage to see is a heart between his index and middle finger.
Heh, Ninja Gaiden is no longer a 360 exclusive. Just thought I'd come here to remind you people.
What glorious news for action fans!!!
I can't see anything weird about the blood.....
Ninja Gaiden 3 is seriously gonna be bitchin!
It better be on the PS3 or 360. If its on some handheld I'm gonna cry.
