Team Ninja’s Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden series will reportedly be rebooted in the future.
During a company keynote address at the G-Star Conference in South Korea, Team Ninja president Fumihiko Yasuda mentioned plans to reboot both long-running series following the release of Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty in 2023 and the rise of ronin in 2024.
According to one translation (via Free Step Dodge), the next slide simply says:
“youeam NINJA’s Future – Popular Series Reboot – Screenshots of Gaiden NINJA & Alive or dead”
No information beyond this has been shared, but from the sounds of it these projects are still in the early stages, so don’t expect to see anything anytime soon.
Other than the beach-themed spinoff Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Scarlet, it’s been a while since we’ve seen a proper Dead or Alive game on a Nintendo platform. As for the Ninja Gaiden series, we got the Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection trilogy on Switch last year.
