A lot of series are getting reboots. Medal of Honor just took a reboot, Prince of Persia had one a while ago, and the latest Castlevania is certainlyâ€¦ different to its predecessors. Now it sounds like Ninja Gaiden is getting the â€œah to hell with it, let’s throw everything out and start againâ€ treatment.
Team Ninja’s Yousuke Hayashi has dropped hints on what people can expect from the next Ninja Gaiden game. Pointing towards a picture of Ryu (after the jump) he highlighted certain elements that contain hints of what the reboot will entail. It’s very vague at the moment, but speculating is always fun – fact!
According to Hayashi, â€œRyu seems to be doing something with [his] right hand. Also, there’s something not normal about this hand. It’s covered in blood, but there’s something unnatural regarding the blood.â€
He went on to say that Team Ninja is developing the game with â€œthe idea of restarting at the beginningâ€ The reason? They point towards a desire to â€œmake the action game that’s most interesting for the current era. With this meaning, it’s going to be a game that’s not bound by the past more than necessary.â€
Any thoughts on the picture of Ryu in light of all the talk of franchise reboots? Let us now in the comments.
