Twinfinite Writes: Koei Tecmo's Nioh shares a lot in common with both Ninja Gaiden and Dark Souls. Could the new title be the future for Team Ninja's flagship series?
Ugh. I really miss good Ninja Garden games
Aye, the soil was always fertile and the plants grew fast!
Nioh is just one more of the great franchises made by Koei Tecmo
Ninja Gaiden is a totally different type of game than Nioh. Its a fast-paced, incredibly technical action game. It has its own place and should not mirror the Nioh/Dark Souls/Bloodborne formula. They too have their own place.
But Nioh clearly has Ninja Gaiden combat elements infused into it.
Nioh is the future of Team Ninja.
Need to give this game a go.
Nioh is the Beginning of the Nioh Franchise, the latest amazing Playstation exclusive
Man, this game is just good.
I sure hope not. Ninja Gaiden has its own unique identity
I agree. Nioh is awesome in my book. But Ninja Gaiden in its heyday was outstanding as well. It had it's own mechanics and its own flavor. I hope we one day see another Ninja Gaiden game.
How about Nioh is the future of itself, and Ninja Gaiden may return to form someday. Is there some reason they can't both exist? I sure can't think of one.
Because it's Team Ninja, they're not going to be making yearly COD releases, they don't make those kind of sales. And the good NG games were the days before Youtube was a thing, let alone Twitch for shilling hype.
It's better if we put it this way: Nioh is the start of something fresh for Team Ninja, while Ninja Gaiden is something they can revive at some point after Nioh's success. They can go the From Soft and Naughty Dog's route of alternating titles every two or so years. Anyway, I love Nioh; thank God for that! :)
Exactly, when Nioh needs a break they can reboot Ninja Gaiden, but right it's all about Nioh.
"They can go the From Soft and Naughty Dog's route of alternating titles every two or so years." I think that would be a good approach.
I love the environments of Nioh!
Nioh is stylish and smooth. There is a touch of ninja gaiden in there but I think both are best off being separate. Anyone on the fence about this game just go buy it. Team ninja made an amazing game and if the difficulty is turning you off don't sweat it. The game is very approachable
Hope not , wy not both .
No hope not ,just cause I would love to see more NG made and remain a multiplatform game.
NG4, on all platforms, no other game left to play after that, i'd be done. I'd kill for one on PC.
No, I love Nioh and the souls games but i really miss Ninja Gaiden, one of my first games for my PS3 was Ninja Gaiden Sigma and damn!! we need another one like that and less than 3
Sigma was great, Ninja Gaiden 2 was pretty good, Ninja Gaiden 3 was atrocious. The Ninja Gaiden games were pretty good on Vita as well.
Lol Absolutely not. Two completely different games that both have a place in gaming. The real question is how does Team Ninja restore Ninja Gaiden back to it's origins; NG 1-2/Sigma 1-2. I will say that having a Nioh/Souls type Ninja Gaiden could be extremely interesting though it's heart and core rests in hardcore action, not in stamina bars.
Im i the only one who want Team Ninja a metroid other m-like game? that game wouldv been great if it wasnt tied to a stupid franchise.
Even the blacksmith old man from Ninja Gaiden is in this game so yeah
Ninja Gaiden & Nioh are 2 different entities,though one somewhat resembling the other.
I pray to God not. If NG/Skate 4 never come, I am done with games... Nioh is like the millenial revision of NG, for DS fans that think they're hardcore for beating a supposedly tough game. No action adventure game comes remotely close to holding a candle to the combat system of NG. For those who need convincing.. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Playing Nioh actually made me want another Ninja Gaiden game. I hope they can continue both series.
Hope not. Nioh is Nioh. Ninja Gaiden should remain Ninja Gaiden.
