Ninja Gaiden 3 Not Bound by the Past, Says Team Ninja

At the risk of sounding like an Itagaki fangirl I think the game is going to suck. Why? Because..well Tomonobu Itagaki was the heart of Team Ninja. Without him at the helm I feel that this game is going to go way,w ay downhill. Now that isn't to say I enjoyed all aspects of his last game (his pervertted fixation on booby phsysics and stupid costumes for the girls) but other than that, I found the games to be fun.

So while I *hope* the game will be fun, I doubt it will be.

Mabye they can add a bit of Tenchu like stealth gameplay, you are playing a ninja after all.

Can we get Dead or Alive 6 now? So that we can actually have a balanced fighting game that doesn't require you to be on cocaine to even beat the practice modes?

I'm mean yeah, Ninja Gaiden is cool and all (jiggle physics), but DoA was even more fun, and had even more jiggle physics.

CTU_Loscombe:
Why are you judging it on looks alone though? Surely, if you're a DMC fan, then you will be happy as long as the core gameplay is similar or better.
That's why I said it....It weeds out the "They changed Dante! I hate this already even though Ive not played it" from the "As long as it plays the same"
You also need to remember the game is set BEFORE the first DMC. So that's before he had his girly white hair and typical JRPG style look. Its meant to be more "down to earth" and "human" in character than wholey unbelievable like the rest of them

Right, sorry if I'm curt with you, but I just spent quite a bit of effort on a lengthy and deep reply which I lost to a browser crash, so I'm not in the best of moods.

Basically, you are the one who is making sweeping and completely unfounded statements. "Best in the series"? Don't make me laugh. I can see however, by your use of the "girly" and "typical JRPG" that you didn't care for the style of the previous games. Thus, we are a different type of fan. You are there for the gameplay. I'm there for the complete package, and how it comes together.

Also, I'm hardly a shallow hater judging merely by the trailer, don't lump me in with that crowd. Look at the signs: Ninja Theory (mediocre developer at best), trolling the fanbase for free publicity (or they're saying they were doing that to cover up for a marketing blunder), and the constant stream of BS that is their press releases and interviews.

Also, your arguments show ignorance of the original lore, just like Ninja Theory. Dante has always had white hair. Dante as a more "believable" or "grounded" character is not the Dante we know and love, it is not Dante. Also, there's plenty of depth to him as written by Kamiya if you pay attention to the backstory and fill in some blanks.

Nouw:
Yay! More busty ladies and gory death scenes!
Gotta love Ninja Gaiden! I loved Ninja Gaiden:Dragon Sword and Ninja Gaiden 2!

And please make sure the Xbox360 version is better than the PS3 one, being faithful to the original console y'know.

Wait, if they were faithful to the original console, wouldn't the Wii have the best version?

"As well as the obvious details, like protagonist Ryu Hayabusa about to pull down his mask, Hayashi said that there was something unusual about Ryu's hand and about the blood that he was covered in."

maybe its someone else pulling down his mask and he is dead so its his blood?!?!?!

No, post-2004 Ninja Gaiden games made a debut on the Xbox original.
