Today, Koei Tecmo teased a new game announcement via twitter for December 6, 2018.
We already know about Dead or Alive 6 and Nioh 2, so all fingers are pointing towards a Ninja Gaiden related announcement. If it is Ninja Gaiden, it looks like it will only appear on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC. For the Xbox fans this will really come as a blow especially as Tomonobu Itagaki‘s Ninja Gaiden reboot was strongly associated with the xbox brand.
The announcement may also be related to Toukiden 3 or Samurai Warriors 5. Only time will tell.
Ninja Gaiden began on the Arcades in 1988, followed by the NES version in the USA in 1989. In 2004 Ninja Gaiden was released on the Xbox by Tomonobu Itagaki and Team Ninja to high scores, high sales and above all high difficulty. It was followed by Ninja Gaiden 2 in 2008 and Ninja Gaiden 3 in 2012 then Ninja Gaiden Z in 2014. The last two unfortunately did not sell as well and scored poorly in reviews.
The announcement is due to be made Thursday 6th December, we wait with baited breath.
