So it’s been 7 years since Ninja Gaiden 3 and the expanded and updated version Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge came out.
You’re probably wondering if Ninja Gaiden 4 is ever going to be released. It’s sure about time for a new one right?
Well here is everything we know so far.
When will Ninja Gaiden 4 be released?
Will there even be a Ninja Gaiden 4?
It might happen, but at this rate nowhere in the near future.
We doubt that it will be available on the current gen consoles PS4 or Xbox One and if it does get released it will be on the next gen consoles.
Team Ninja, the division at Koei Tecmo (the Japanese game company behind the Ninja Gaiden series), has been really busy with Dead or Alive and Nioh series.
So busy that they’ve released two sequels for the Dead or Alive series since Ninja Gaiden 3 last came out and Nioh 2 is in the works.
To their (little) credit though they have released a spinoff called Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, but this isn’t the true sequel that fans have been wanting for years.
Some fans went so far as to say that they just slapped the Ninja Gaiden name on a terrible Hack and slash zombie game to milk it for whatever they could.
Most would agree that a remaster of the last three games would have been a much better thing for Team Ninja to spend to their time on.
All that said, Lee also commented on the possibility of expanding the Ninja Gaiden series:
Big emphasis on the “maybe” and nothing specific on Ninja Gaiden 4.
Take from that what you will.
Ninja Gaiden 4 rumors
So to date there hasn’t been anything official said let alone a release date announced or trailer shown. But, interestingly enough the European division of the company tweeted on January 2, 2019 a pic of Ryu Hayabusa and said that “2019 is going to be a banger for games! Here at the Koei Tecmo Family we might just have a few surprises for you too!”
Was this is a hint that Ninja Gaiden 4 is coming?
Probably not, on account of the facepalm that followed when asked specifically about Ninja Gaiden 4…
Anyway if something comes up we will be the first to keep you updated so stick around.
