Director of Ninja Gaiden Tomonobu Itagaki has founded a new development team and revealed that it would be an honor work with Xbox, in case Microsoft is interested.
Itagaki today relaunched on his Facebook profile an interview granted to Bloomberg on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the first console of Microsoft .
Remembering the times of Team Ninja’s exclusive relationship, with the new Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden , the Japanese director and designer answered a question about the possibility that – if Xbox Game Studios came forward for an acquisition – Itagaki Games would declare itself available.
«It’s been 20 years since then, and I have established my own company, Itagaki Games, which is neither Tecmo nor Valhalla.
I know Microsoft is still aggressive. If they contacted me, it would be an honor for me. ”
It is true that the Xbox house is particularly active in the branch of acquisitions, although we are talking about much larger realities at the moment.
And it’s true that Xbox Game Studios is looking to expand into Japan to establish a presence in what it believes to be a “creative superpower”.
As for Itagaki, after his experience on the modern series of Ninja Gaiden , he launched into the Devil’s Third experience for Wii U that didn’t end particularly well.
If you want to pre-order Xbox Series X, we recommend that you keep an eye on the dedicated page on Amazon.
