Team Ninja's Yosuke Hayashi is looking back at Ninja Gaiden 2 to decide how to improve Ninja Gaiden 3. Hayshi, the producer of Ninja Gaiden 3, said he was keeping the criticisms Ninja Gaiden 2 received in mind while making the next game in the series. He told Videogamer.com, "That's why it's important for Ninja Gaiden III - we want to have it brand new, and we're going to create a Ninja Gaiden III from full scratch and change the paradigm." For more on what to expect from Ninja Gaiden 3 keep reading.
"The good things we want to improve more and bad things we want to change," Yosuke Hayashi said. "Most of all, basically, for the previous series - Ninja Gaiden II is already outdated, I feel. That's why, as you see, the industry evolution for game creation and game development already has been changed and paradigm shifted." Worried this might mean NG3 will be less gory, less action packed or less over-the-top? I don't think you'll have anything to worry about. While details were sparse he did say Team Ninja would be "focusing more on how to cut people, and the sense of cutting" this time around.
