So yeah, this is pretty cool. The first proper Ninja Gaiden title not to be produced by our old pal Tomonobu Itagaki but instead by Yosuke Hayashi has just seen a bunch of screenshots release, including one that’s clearly set in London. Underground sign plus red bus confirms it.
We doubt the game is exclusively set in London, but we’re pleased that it’ll be one of the stops he’ll likely be making around the globe as he slices up bitches.
Hayashi has previously commented that Ninja Gaiden 3 – the existence of which this site confirmed first back in 2009 – will be totally different from the previous games, and stuff. Clearly he’s getting a bit carried away as it looks pretty much the same to us.
But we’re sure it’ll still be great, especially if Team Ninja is mixing things up with new locations and what have you.
Watch out for more from E3 next week. Here’s our review of NG2.
