Team Ninja gets new head, no new DOA in sight yet

Kotaku reported that Tecmo has announced at a press conference in Tokyo yesterday that Team Ninja has three titles currently in development, with team member Jin Hasegawa apparently taking the place of the de-ninja’ed Tomonobu Itagaki.

One of the upcoming titles is expected to hit in 2009, and is said to be designed specially for Western markets. Whatever the game is, it’s supposedly of a genre new to Team Ninja. Tecmo also showed off the Wii port of Rygar and announced the sequel to DS Nishimura Kyotaro Suspense Shin Tantei Series: Kyoto Atami Zekkai no Kotou – Satsui no Wana (try saying that four times as quickly as you can).

Unfortunately, no sign of any new Dead or Alive game. I’m pretty sure something is sure to be developed and unleashed eventually. Whether it’s gonna feature Final Fantasy characters depends on what happens in the near future.
