At a very, very informal Tecmo
event, held during the Tokyo Game Show on Saturday evening, attendees were introduced to the new faces of post-Itagaki
Team Ninja. Though we'd heard before that Hitoshi Hasegawa had taken over as the head of the Ninja Gaiden
and Dead or Alive
development team, it was our first opportunity to meet the team's new representation. Joining him is Yosuke "Itsygaki
" Hayashi, director of Ninja Gaiden Sigma
and producer of Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword
. Neither of them wear sunglasses indoors.
Tecmo refrained from commenting on the team's upcoming slate of games, candidly stating that it was working on "a shitload of projects." Which either implies a large quantity of games, or a very oddly named RPG.
