Fighting games haven't changed enough - Team Ninja

Team Ninja's Yosuke Hayashi says that the recent revival of the fighting genre is great, but things haven't changed much.
"To be completely honest, after Dead or Alive 4 we weren't sure what the future was going to be. We were trying to think of something new, but we weren't getting any ideas of what to do for 5," he told Siliconera candidly.

Team Ninja?
Shhhhhhhhhhhhhh, be quiet.
Let the grown ups talk. Most genres are doing nothing new but they are still, unlike you, relevant in gaming. Dead or Alive has been MIA since what feels like forever.

IMHO the Dead or Alive series is okay for shits and giggles and goggling at jiggly bouncing boobies. Other than that is was a nice little diversion to take break between the main players like Tekkens, Streetfighter, Soul Calibur, Virtua, MvsC, Mortal Kombat, etc...

For me the Dead or Alive was more like Bloody Roar level of fighting or at the very least after all the ones I listed above.

If anything they should be grateful that Capcom brought out SFIV because that is what appears to have given the fighting genre breath again. I wish more genres would make a come back and over take shooters and the lead genre. Shooters are really starting to get stale. They are so over saturated.

What I want as a fighting fan is for MS to wake the f*ck up and have Rare make a new Killer Instinct.

I think team ninja are still relevant. I loved ninja gaiden sigma 2. That game was badass.

And they're right... Go way back to street fighter 1 and compare it to SSFIV and really they haven't changed much.

I don't think they need to change, because, well mortal kombat is all I need to say to support my argument.

honestly, tekken sucks, the gameplay is so stiff and slow, i press the button and it reacts like 2 seconds later, its horrible, and tekken does feel the same since part 1 and its sad.

DOA is a fun game, it has depth aswell, they just need to make counters and throws weaker.

ugggh just played tekken tag 2 and its such a bad game. talk about restricting creative freedom in combos.

And I suppose you know more about creating games than them, psshh, what a joke. The only people that hate Team Ninja are ones that got their ass handed to them in the Ninja Gaiden games.

TBH...I actually wouldn't mind a new bloody roar with a set of both new & returning playable characters.Also thrown tag team modes with upto 3 vs 3,fully destructible & dynamic environments,full character customizations,tons of unlocks to earn more content ect...! buy it in a heart beat!
