Nioh director Fumihiko Yasuda reflects on the series’ development and what’s next for the action-packed studio.
The 2nd game bombed, so they're moving on. That's the real story.
Though it sometimes feels like a curse as you play, it is a testament that Nioh 2 successfully grabs and holds your complete attention so close for so long." By October 2020, the game had sold over 1.2 million copies worldwide. It was nominated for Best Action at The Game Awards 2020
That's an old wiki statement. It was confirmed back in May that the game has sold over 1 million units. https://www.playstationlife...
Ab Nice it was a success and that's all that matters. Not every game costs hundreds of millions to make
the team behind Nioh 2 wasnt the same as Nioh 1 ....had some good points here and there but ultimately was bland and difficult for all the wrong reasons (for example not a single item is not left alone without trap by lame enemiy attacks to the point of 1000nd seen boredome) ...shame because they had done a lot of work
How did the game bomb ? I saw favorable reviews. Haven't played it myself since I never finished the first one. Maybe it wasn't to your liking, that doesn't mean it was a failure though.
People usually either refer to reviews or sales when they say a game bombed. But it got good reviews and sold over a million copies, so I would hardly say it bombed lol
nah, sold just as well as the first so it was a commercial success...he mentioned last year in an interview that wanted to do a new IP for the next generation
2 sweet games, now moved on and make a new NG game.
From what I've heard, none of the original staff who made NG1 remain at Team Ninja sadly. Sekiro is basically Nioh + Ninja Gaiden. But yeh, would love a new NG game. Or at least NG Black collection remastered and ported to current consoles.
Nah, the relentless way you fight is very similar. Lots of verticality and super aggressive bosses. Biggest difference is lack of combos in Sekiro.
On to Ninja Gaiden 4 already
And please god don't give Ryu some stupid disease that causes him to wince in pain and go into a painful animation every 30 seconds that even pulls you out of combos. Whoever had that idea for NG3 should be kicked out of video game development forever. And the people that agreed that it was a good idea and allowed it into the game can go with them
damn I still havnt played it im worried lol
They said no Ninja gaiden and no more Nioh. What the blazes were they talking about when they said the fans would say *finally*
Finally Tecmo Bowl Returns in 2021
This would be the game of the generation if it came out.
@Viking "Finally" might be referencing the proposed Ninja Gaiden Trilogy Remaster that was mentioned in another article... "Although Team Ninja denies that a new instalment is in the works, it was recently suggested that a selection of Ninja Gaiden remasters could be planned for 2021." https://www.videogameschron...
I have more hope that the next NG will more like NG2 after nioh. Instead of the trashtastic, toned down shit sequels.
Id rather they move on to other lands and eras. China would be great.
