Team Ninja Announce Dead Or Alive 5

By Ryan Martin, Writer

Team Ninja has announced a new title at their TGS event. The Japanese studio confirmed that Dead or Alive 5 is in development for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, due out next year.

That wasn’t all the studio has to say though. Ninja Gaiden 3 was also on show at the event and the main focus was on the second of the three strokes concept. The first (shown at E3) represents the Katana while the second represents consequence. A trailer was shown detailing Ryu’s resistance to the idea of leaving his own personal objective in favour of doing what he has been assigned.

The development team also revealed that Ninja Gaiden 3 will not use the same dismemberment system we have seen in past titles. The purpose of altering the system is so that players can feel what it is like to “cut someone down”.

The title’s multiplayer component was also spoken about. Team Ninja stated that it won’t involve Ryu which gives players the chance to create their own ninjas. The aim for the multiplayer is to create “a world of ninjas” where players challenge one another in a bid to become world number one. It will support up to eight players.

Sony confirmed earlier today that Ninja Gaiden Sigma will be coming to the PlayStation Vita.
