I guess technically. but no Itagaki...is that really Team Ninja? no. no it isn't.
That has to be pretty insulting to the rest of the team. Itagaki wasn't involved at all in arguably their best game.

You realize this is pretty in line with calling a press conference and giving a notion of what will be announced at the press conference with no specifics.

It's not that bad an idea for something like this where it's a big name company and the press gets invited. Kinda like Apple does it. Kinda like the federal government does as well.

STOP FUCKING ANNOUNCING GAME ANNOUNCEMENTS. JUST ANNOUNCE THE FUCKING GAME.

Seriously, there is no good that comes from announcing game announcements. All it does is get people overly hyped up for something that will, nine times out of ten, not live up to that hype.

Whereas having an interesting looking game just kinda come out of fucking nowhere? THAT gets people excited about your game.

Nintendo are publishing that.
They published it in Japan. Most are saying Tecmo are likely to publish it in the other regions (if at all). Besides once I saw the bit about the Playstation Store I changed my mind.

Did you hit your head or something? 'cause that's the only way you could forget that the game went through two iterations on the Xbox under Itagaki.

but I guess in-battle loading times and a throw-away extra character really push it above the rest of the NG games....oh wait.

Ninja Gaiden Black 2. Please Tecmo, do it.

:lol :lol





EDIT: On second thought, I don't think it's Ninja Gaiden related. Tecom says it's a secret, new title.

Yeah lets forget that Itagaki was behind NG and NGB before Hayashi took it added combat loading screen, framerate issues and an extra character that totally killed the pace and made those sections a bore to play.

NG2 > Sigma IMO of course.

So do I but no Itagaki = I don't care about DOA anymore.
After Sigma that his underling undertook that turned out well, and the disappointment that was NGII I could care less for him. I think his team has made those games enough that they could make the games just as well without him.

Lets forget the better placed save points/shops, the subtle and not-so-subtle alterations to the battle system and camera (shooting arrows in midair etc), more content (playing the burning village scene), new enemies, new weapons and of course the updated graphics.

Itagaki must've liked Hayashi's combat loading screens, since he decided to add them in NG2 himself, along with a few choice classics like recharging health. One hit wonder, there's a reason he had the same game remade twice.

Sigma is way better than NG2. In some ways, it's to be expected-- it's a formula refined three times and NG2 is very rough (and Itagaki was halfway out the door). But it introduces some issues that it simply shouldn't have.

But it's not going to be NG. I have my bets on QT.
