It feels like each the Lifeless or Alive and the Ninja Gaiden sequence are on observe to obtain respective reboots.
We have not had a brand new entry in both sequence for quite a few years, however in accordance with a current report from Ruliweb (thanks, VGC), that quickly would possibly change. The report shared that Group Ninja president Fumihiko Yasuda spoke throughout a panel on the G-Star convention in Busan, the place he mentioned he was working to carry followers information as quickly as he may.
Apparently, a slide on the finish of the panel confirmed a pair of pictures displaying Ninja Gaiden and Lifeless or Alive together with the headline “The way forward for Group Ninja – Reboot of fashionable sequence,” in Japanese. Clearly this does not outright affirm model new video games are coming proper across the nook, although it does very strongly counsel that we will count on one thing sooner or later.
Lifeless or Alive’s final entry wasn’t that way back, most lately in 2019 with Lifeless or Alive 6, although that one had the ridiculous downside of charging as much as £74 for only one of its season passes. Which to be clear, contained two characters and a few costumes. Yikes does not even start to explain it.
Ninja Gaiden, then again, hasn’t had a mainline entry since Ninja Gaiden 3 in 2012. A remastered assortment of the three primary titles was launched final yr, however that is about all we have had from the sequence in a couple of decade apart from one spinoff recreation.
Earlier this yr, Yasuda spoke with VGC concerning the Ninja Gaiden sequence, noting that Group Ninja wasn’t towards the thought of outsourcing growth of a brand new recreation to a different studio.
Whereas Group Ninja hasn’t labored on a brand new Lifeless or Alive or Ninja Gaiden recreation in a number of years, it doesn’t suggest the studio hasn’t been busy. Wo Lengthy: Fallen Dynasty is not very distant now, and Rise of the Ronin was introduced in September as a PS5 console unique.
