I'm gonna need an extra dose of Remeron because I probably won't be alive by the time Ninja Gaiden IV sees the light of day.

If they add an easy mode that gets me full achievements I'm in. But honestly, I've never been able to beat these games.

We want a challenging game with blood and highly satisfying combat. Heck just remake Ninja Gaiden Black and I would be happy!

You goin a get a new NG game from an American studio that adds woke and inclusive features. Rachel will be Overweight cause it's brave. An apology will be issued for Ninja Gaiden "black". Will be changed to Ninja Gaiden "All". Don't mind me. Just bored before starting work.

I heard Itagaki is working on something for next gen....

I'm glad to see this. But I am a sentimental sort. I'm the type that likes to see bands get back together. I'd prefer to see him back with TK. I'd like to see Kojima and Team Silent back with Konami(and Konami utilizing their vast stable of IPs). I'd like to see Cliff Bleszinski back with Epic and taking over the dead development of Unreal Tournament. I'd like to see the doctors buy back Bioware from EA, and get Drew back. I'd like to see Sakaguchi and Uematsu back with Square to make FF16 a retro sprite game. There are many others.

I guess I'm just a middle-aged guy pining for the past. /shrugs

Two very different games nioh combat is NOTHING like NG combat dude

I played 150 hours of both, beat ninja gaiden black on master ninja. There's some similarities in how fast combat is paced, and in the control you the player have over the main character. However, there is no jumping, and the vertical game is rather limited as a result. to me the dodge mechanic and bosses were amazing, and that was the main strength of ninja gaiden black, it was knowing when to attack and aggressive enemies, the combos is just icing on the cake.

If there is a Ninja Gaiden 4, I hope they retcon the idea that the NES trilogy are canon "sequels" to the Xbox/PlayStation games. It's stupid and doesn't make sense.

They already did. While the reboot was originally a prequel to the trilogy when it released, that's long been scrapped, hence the reintroduction of Irene in NG2, NG3: Razor's Edge, and Dead or Alive Dimensions. Dimensions also made recons to DOA1-4 as well.

Good. That was a dumb idea by Itagaki.

Some people were telling me the blonde Irene is the same Irene in the NES games but that makes no sense.
