Rumor: Nioh 2 Producer hints at a new Ninja Gaiden game

It’s been a very long time since we’ve seen or heard of a Ninja Gaiden game, even though it was one of the most popular and influential game franchises of the 2000s. The last entry of the series, Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, wasn’t well-received by many fans, and during the entirety of the last generation, there was an outcry for more Ninja Gaiden games.

However, in an interview with noisy pixel, Nioh 2 producer Fumihiko Yasuda was asked if a new Ninja Gaiden game is in the making, and he replied with:

Ninja Gaiden is an incredibly important franchise to both myself and Team Ninja. I am always looking for any opportunity to revive the series. While we worked on the Nioh series on PS4, the fact that we were unable to release a new Ninja Gaiden title is something that I think about often. With the new consoles now released, I think that this is the perfect time to release a new entry in the series.”

This could mean there’s a chance that a new Ninja Gaiden game will get released sometime in the future for the newer consoles. Speaking of Team Ninja, Nioh 2: The Complete Edition is making its way to the PC on February 5th
