KOEI Tecmo Recently filed a trademark application for the poorly reviewed Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z.
Wow! I seriously loved the first one. Don't know why it was reviewed poorly, it was fun as hell and the humor was great. I seriously hope they make a sequel in the same style as the first.
Everyone loved the concept, just gameplay wise it fell a bit flat compared to the previous games. I myself never played it but am really excited to hear they are doing another in the spinoff series. I've always had an interest in it, but just never pulled the trigger on actually buying it, might go back and actually play the first one now though.
The gameplay was very fast arcade type action that I felt was just as challenging as the regular Ninja Gaiden series. What made the game great was the fact you played as a villain oit for revenge...from what I remember, it's been a long time. It was such a great concept going through levels trying to get revenge on Ryu. Definitely give it a shot if you ever come across it, I don't remember the reviews for the game but I definitely had a blast when I played it.
Easily the worst Ninja Gaiden game.... Well maybe 3. 3 was pretty bad
Lol Ninja Gaiden 2 was the best
Dang that would be awesome
I had the first on 360, the art style was awesome.
Finally got around to playing this one this year. I understand why it got bashed in the reviews but I still enjoyed it as a whole. The combat combos were solid and the traversal prompts looked sweet.
Me too, but I had fun playing it, with the quirky insane combos and the hackneyed story.. It wasn't meant to be taken seriously, just enjoy whacky beat em up nonsense
Resurrect the worst Ninja Gaiden game ever, WTFF?
The series died when Itagaki left.
They should resurrect the first or second. I would want 3 only for the online and co-op arena mode. Never played Yaiba but always wanted too.
...Filing a trademark application is in no way indicative of a plan to resurrect a franchise. It's simply maintaining your control of said trademark.
