Ni-Oh announcement might happen this year

"It takes time to rebuild a game system."


Remember Ni-Oh? It was a PlayStation 3 game Koei Tecmo announced in 2005. It never came out, but was eventually handed off to Team Ninja. It was still “very much in development” as of November 2014. It’s probably not a PlayStation 3 game anymore. But whatever it is now, we might hear about it at some point this year.

“We’ve been working for many years on a game called Ni-Oh,” said Koei Tecmo founder Kou Shibusawa on the latest episode of TVK Yokohama’s Kanagawa Business Up to Date. “It takes time to rebuild a game system, but we’re working to create a new action game. I’ll probably be able to announce details about it sometime this year.”

Thanks, Game-Waza.
