- Tecmo's Team Ninja is one crew that has weathered a few storms over the years. There was the resignation of Tomonobu Itagaki
, the subsequent lawsuit, and the Koei Tecmo merger among others.
The team may have lost one of its aces, but it's good to see that they are still walking the path of the ninja. Now under the leadership of Yosuke Hayashi, the team is now going to work on new Ninja Gaiden titles.
Despite having Itagaki's ghost affecting outlook for the game, Hayashi believes that only the leadership has changed with the team, and that future releases would still hold true to the "Team Ninja DNA."
One of the future releases would be Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, carrying huge upgrades from its predecessors and features that we've come to expect from the current generation, such as multiplayer co-op and online features.
Speaking of this console generation, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 currently stands as a PS3-exclusive.
"I am sorry for our Xbox 360 fans, but this one will be PS3 only," Hayashi said. "As much as I would like to take that as sort of a compliment, saying that we should share the wealth with other consoles, I think it's more or less too old by the time Sigma 2 hits the market and enough people have played it already on the Xbox 360."
