Tecmo Koei senior managing director Yoshiki Sugiyama told CVG in May that the game will be "spectacular".

"Ninja Gaiden is such a beloved and important franchise for us and fans expect such great things from the next instalment that we need to indulge in a little nurturing," he said.

Yosuke Hayashi, head of developer Team Ninja, has said recently that the studio will look at the prospect of making a Ninja Gaiden game on Vita after work on NG3 is complete.
