New Ninja Gaiden reportedly in the works from Bayonetta Developer

Koei Tecmo’s Ninja Gaiden franchise has a passionate audience, but it’s been several years since an all-new series entry. It looks like this could change, as a new rumor suggests so Bayonetta developer PlatinumGames is working on a new installment in the series. The rumor was shared by XboxEra co-founder Shpeshal Nick on Twitter. While Shpeshal Nick has quite a track record when it comes to this sort of thing, as with any rumor, readers should take this with a grain of salt until we get some sort of official announcement from Koei Tecmo or PlatinumGames.

Shpeshal Nick’s Tweet can be found below.

So far, reception to the rumor has been a bit mixed! PlatinumGames has shown that it can deliver great action games, just like with the Bayonetta trilogy. Of course, the team has also produced a handful of underwhelming titles, including Babylon’s fall. If Tecmo gives the team the time and resources it needs to develop a high-quality game, Platinum could knock it out of the park. The timing of this rumor is of course surprising, as PlatinumGames seems to have a lot in development right now. On Twitter last week Hideki Kamiya teased that a fourth entry in the Bayonetta franchise is in the works. The studio will also be released next year Granblue Fantasy: Relink.

The original Ninja Gaiden first released in arcades and on the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1988. The game spawned a trilogy on the NES that is still loved by retro enthusiasts. A second trilogy of Ninja Gaiden games began in 2004 to critical acclaim from fans and critics alike. Outside 2021 Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection compilation, the most recent all-new game in the series was 2014’s Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z. Considering how long it’s been, it seems like a safe bet that players will be reacquainted with Ryu Hayabusa in the near future. However, it remains to be seen if that future actually holds PlatinumGames!
