As long as he's doing something that allows him to talk mass shit, that's all I need. I don't even care if his game is good, his attitude can sell me on it either way.

Better be an action game with crappy story, awesome gameplay, brutal difficulty and big tits.

What I want: A brand new kickass action IP in the vein of a Ninja Gaiden.

What I expect: An action oriented Natal game.

Either way, I'm so eager to see what hes got for E3. :D

Hopefully whatever he comes up with next is technically impressive and not such a dissapointment as NG2 was.

But for real, Itagaki never ceases to amaze me so whatever he's got up his sleeve is gonna be the crack.

I was wondering what was going on with that lawsuit recently. Good that they got it sorted.
Yeah I bet he got it sorted... he probably seduced the judge's niece and got him to play nice, then sent his ninja to Tecmo to "convince" them of his case. All's well that ends well in the life of a pimp, u know...

This little bit of info is more than enough to keep me happy for Itagaki's status - dude's the reason why I loved Team Ninja games, and made Ninja Gaiden the only action series I'll love, and his interviews are the best bar none - no bullshit, no PC modesty, just nothing but the truth...

Can't wait to see what he's up to, it's been way too long...

Boy, he better impress or there will be a lotta egg. :lol
The man gave us Tecmo Bowl. Single-handedly saved Tecmo from Bankruptcy with Dead or Alive and then created the greatest action game of all time in Ninja Gaiden. Yeah I don't think we have much to worry about :D

I always thought Team Ninja was overrated. Ninja Gaiden on the Xbox is basically the only Itagaki game I have ever liked.

But I'm still kinda interested in his projects, and his quotes.

If I remember correctly, he said he would like to create something different this time around, i.e. not an action game.

Maybe an action RPG?

Didn't he criticize Hideki Kamiya for leaving Capcom bit still making the same sort of game he was making when he was with them? Itagaki's game surely won't be similar to Ninja Gaiden, if that's the case.

Oh boy, he could make a monster of an action-rpg gameplay wise..but there needs to be a good story there to carry a whole rpg (and story is definitely not a strong suit for Itagaki & friends).

If I had to bet on something, it'd be on an action oriented Natal game.
