What Happened to Ninja Gaiden?

Ninja Gaiden is a classic franchise that originated on the NES. It was successfully remastered in the mid-2000s but then faded away. What happened?

Yup; it needs a revamp anyway; combat was good but story was a mess; and for some reason they made Ryu hideous; he was fine in DOA2-3, i'm not sure why they made him look like an older generic plastic man.

Clearly someone has not played Ninja Gaiden. Otherwise this comment wouldn't exist.

Ninja Gaiden on the SNES had such amazing music, and the gameplay was absolutely brutal but perfect. I also remember all the hype surrounding Ninja Gaiden on the original Xbox, and that became one of my biggest reasons for buying one. Ninja Gaiden was the demon/dark souls game that I and so many others grew up playing, and just like those games, there were no excuses for dying because the core mechanics were rock solid.

To use an ancient phrase: "it got woke."

No, seriously. A game intended for action nerds who do energy drinks trough I-Vs and habitually watch ninja movies, someone thought it was a good idea to include enemies including psycho killer mercs, murderous mutants and literal feed on human suffering demons, wage slave security guards who only beg and plead for their lives when cornered. With no option not to kill them.

There was also that lame climbing mechanic...

Not seeing how this constitutes “going woke”

Trying to make you the player regretful for killing a character who doesn't want to die, is obviously an innocent, while giving you no option but to kill them. To sour you against violent games while playing one.

lol “woke”

I guess that just means “me no likey”

"To sour you against violent games while playing one."

...That has almost nothing to do with "being woke".
