Team Ninja head Yosuke Hayashi brings up the fact that Ninja Gaiden fans appear a bit apprehensive of Yaiba, and aren’t fully convinced it’s a game they’ll enjoy. Hayashi then goes on to say that Yaiba is meant to offer a different take on the series, while Team Ninja work on the next game. It seems to be the DmC thing all over again after a low received reception to the last game, the developers change something up and the fans complain online.
While I’m not the biggest Ninja Gaiden fan, I don’t see exactly what the problem with Yaiba, Hell, I didn’t even know that there was a great distain towards Yaiba. Like always it’s just fans overacting over something different.
On top of that here is a small interview from the two men:

Hayashi: As we’ve talked about Yaiba, there have been some Ninja Gaiden fans who have said Yaiba’s not the hardcore action game that they’re looking for. Honestly, they’re a little hesitant about the game.

 

Inafune: Yeah, some people are a little worried.

 

Hayashi: To those people I say this: 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 desert. Every course of the meal would be in the same Ninja Gaiden world, but gamers will experience different kinds of play. That’s how Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z will be different.

Inafune: You just let it out that you’re coming up with the next juice steak. So to the people waiting for that next Ninja Gaiden, it’s coming! And in the meantime, enjoy Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z!
