Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z won’t be released until March 4, 2014, but don’t think that the Ninja Gaiden franchise will just be resting on its laurels after that.
In a recent discussion between Comcept’s Keiji Inafune and head of Team Ninja Yosuke Hayashi, the topic of concern about the quality of Yaiba came up. Specifically, fans were worried that the upcoming title may interfere with the next true entry in the Ninja Gaiden franchise.
Hayashi quickly put those concerns to rest by stating: “Team Ninja is thinking of the next Ninja Gaiden. For example, if the games were food, the Ninja Gaiden series would be a rich meaty entree and Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z would be dessert.”
So there you go, Ninja Gaiden 4 is officially in development.
