TGS 2010: Tecmo Reveals Third Ninja Gaiden Title
Tecmo Koei has completed their TGS 2010 conference and for fans of the developer, they got what they wanted.
Well, they got the confirmation of a potentially great new game, only without any specific details. Team Ninja boss Yosuke Hayashi revealed three new titles: Dead or Alive Dimensions for the Nintendo 3DS, Ni-Oh, a samurai action game co-developed with Koei (which may or may not be a PlayStation 3 exclusive) and last but certainly not least, Ninja Gaiden 3. Hayashi said the game could be summed up with only one image, which you see here: it's protagonist Ryu Hayabusa covered in blood, tugging at his face mask and looking into the camera. No idea what this could mean for the franchise in question, but feel free to toss out a few theories. Tecmo did not announce intended platforms for the third Ryu adventure, although one would like to assume it's coming for both the PS3 and Xbox 360. The series is known for debuting on the Xbox platform and then coming to the PS3 at a later date but these days, multiplatform productions are the general rule of thumb.
We'll be all over NG3 whenever they reveal more information. One of the very best action franchises out there, we have all sorts of confidence in Team Ninja.
