A slide was also reportedly shown during the panel, which shows images from both Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive accompanied by the text: “The future of Team Ninja – Reboot of popular series” in Japanese. Ruliweb reports that Yasuda didn’t give any firm plans but said he will be sharing more “as soon as possible.”
Team Ninja has numerous projects in the works, so it might be a while before we see anything Ninja Gaiden or Dead or Alive surface. Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty launches for Xbox and joins Game Pass in March 2023, while Rise of the Ronin launches exclusively for PS5 in 2024.
Last year saw Team Ninja release the Ninja Gaiden Master Collection, a compilation of previously released Ninja Gaiden titles, including Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge.
