...Wait, sorry, I meant this:――What kind of work do each of the three works look like from Mr. Yasuda's point of view?
Yasuda: I wasn't involved in the first work, but I heard that the development started with the inspiration of "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time " (*). You might think it's a lie, but at first it seems that you're planning a fishing system (laughs). In the end, we focused on actions, but it is such a remnant that search elements such as puzzle solving and jump actions are also included.
* "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time": An action-adventure game released on the Nintendo 64 by Nintendo in 1998.
――I also want to see Ryu Hayabusa fishing (laughs).
Yasuda It may happen someday (laughs).
――By the way, fans often say that you want Ryu Hayabusa to appear in a certain Super Smash Bros. game ...
Yasuda : We are waiting for your invitation (laughs).
That's also what I found weird. I also noticed how they retweeted the Nintendo Life and Famitsu interviews but not the Nintenderos interview.So it looks like we have:
1. Waiting on an invitation.
2. Waiting on an invitation.
3. Waiting on an invitation.
4. No plans at this time.
5. Waiting on an invitation.
It is very strange that 4 out of 5 interviews all say the same thing, as if he’s sticking to a script of some kind, then we have one random interview where he straight up shoots down the idea...only to be followed by another “waiting on an invitation.” Weird.
I still think the weirdest thing is the simple fact that we’ve gotten five interviews over such a short period of time.
The interviews all tie into the Ninja Gaiden collection, right? I assume that these interviews are to help promote that, and people keep bringing up the Smash Bros. question because a character getting into Smash is a pretty big deal (and the interviewers might not be aware that it's already been asked several times by now).I still think the weirdest thing is the simple fact that we’ve gotten five interviews over such a short period of time.
Someone really ought to tell news outlets whether anything has already been said on the matter or not, because this is too confusing.The interviews all tie into the Ninja Gaiden collection, right?

Companies usually tell interviewers what they're not allowed to ask so I find it super sus' that Koei Tecmo are allowing Ryu Hayabusa for Smash Bros questions.The interviews all tie into the Ninja Gaiden collection, right?

If KOEI TECMO told interviewers not to ask about Smash, that would be a sus thing to ask and leak out somehow, so to maintain secrecy it’s better to be allowed to ask anything than have some questions (especially Smash questions) to be off the table, I still personally think the situation is that Team NINJA themselves have no idea if Ryu Hayabusa is coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate or not, because I feel as though if Hayabusa were to come it would most likely be based on his NES counterpart in a similar vein to Simon Belmont and since Team NINJA worked on the reboot and not the original NES trilogy they would most likely not be consulted at all for him and instead be left to Sakurai and the Smash team to work on instead. Some modern stuff like his Izuna Drop and Modern Outfits would be stuff I could see them use but the Modern stuff would be very limited I assumeCompanies usually tell interviewers what they're not allowed to ask so I find it super sus' that Koei Tecmo are allowing Ryu Hayabusa for Smash Bros questions.
I want to see the story revolve around Ryu Hayabusa raising a family with Irene and then he gets called by the JSDF again in order to solve some new issues in his world. Or since the NES games canonically happen after the Modern games, then just do a game about those ones but with modern graphics obviouslySo this newest Famitsu interview discusses the possibility of a Ninja Gaiden 4. It seems that there aren't any plans for it yet, but that they have thrown the idea around and wanna wait and see how Master Collection does. Obviously, a Ninja Gaiden sequel is likely very far away, but it's still exciting to hear it talked about.
What would you guys wanna see from a Ninja Gaiden sequel? It's likely that it would probably be in the same style as the Sigma Trilogy, which sounds great to me. However, it would be really cool if they gave us a reboot in the style of the original trilogy. Have y'all ever played The Messenger? It's an indie sidescroller that takes tons of influence from Ninja Gaiden. Gameplay-wise, it's pretty much exactly what I would want from a Ninja Gaiden sequel. It's tough, but fair. It has a killer soundtrack, diverse movement options, and a surprisingly gripping story (though it's a lot sillier than Ninja Gaiden). It's about $15 on the eShop, and I can't recommend it enough. It's a superb homage.
I also feel that Team Ninja has struck gold with the Nioh series. They really nailed the "soulslike" gameplay style. A Ninja Gaiden sequel in the style of Nioh 2 could be amazing, and would fit the franchise really well in my opinion. People already compare Ninja Gaiden to Dark Souls, so it's a perfect fit.
There's no definitive proof that Ryu Hayabusa has been deconfirmed. We can only definitively say this once the final two fighters have been revealed.At the very least I hope this can become a place where NG fans can come to be excited. Even if our guy didn’t make it this time.
I'm still confident with Ryu Hayabusa being the next fighter in the fighter's pass.
I was wondering if anybody brought up how the Master Collection was revealed for the Switch. Thought that was interesting too.
I don’t think any interview disconfirms a character and I’ve said this multiple times for other characters like Kiryu, and it’s by far the weirdest circumstances that we got 4 or 5 interviews that say “we’re waiting on our invitation” and one that’s very much not that, but I do think I’m a little less optimistic about his chances when it comes to the Nintenderos interview than what I was/am with the other interviews.There's no definitive proof that Ryu Hayabusa has been deconfirmed.

Yes that’s what the reference isIs, "waiting on our invite" basically a reference to the Smash character trailers where the newcomer usually receives an envelope inviting them to join Smash? Sounds oddly specific unless they watch the trailers for all the other character reveals.
What is this from exactly?Well that’s the nail in the coffin unfortunately, sorry my dudes, we’ve come a long way, it’s been fun! Remember even though he’s a no show, we still got our crossover! Ryu Hayabusa will most likely make it next time we should be vocal about it then, but for now let’s move on and welcome the next 2 fighters into Super Smash Bros. Ultimate!View attachment 309405View attachment 309406
Nintenderos interview.What is this from exactly?
1: Some insiders, including Vergeben, heard that Hayabusa was arriving in pass 1, yet he was nowhere to be found
2: The only game in the NG series that got rereleased at the time was an Arcade Archives port for the arcade game, so that probably wasn't enough to justify taking the risk of putting him in Smash (Simon and Richter did at least have rereleases for their games)
3: Koei Tecmo and Nintendo higher-ups, to represent their collaboration, most likely settled with including Byleth, since Three Houses was made using assets provided by KT, so like I've said to TDDolphin they're essentially an unofficial KT character
Why does SEGA get a rep then when Nintendo and SEGA have been close since 2000’s? Hell even Square Enix and Nintendo have been super close all the way back since Super Mario RPG, Mario Sports, Fortune Street, and more, so no personally I don’t think that’s the case at all, but if you think that then that’s your opinion and I respect itSomething I thought of today, we all know that KT is probably the closest 3rd party company to Nintendo currently. But that might be the reason we might not get Ryu or a KT rep, because KT doesn't need a character negotiation to get closer to Nintendo. The past DLC seems be with companies Nintendo wants to be closer with (Square Enix, Microsoft) & franchises they want from companies there already tight with (Persona/Shin Megami Tensei/ Sega & Atlus). With SNK being something of an exception, though SNK have been dedicated on the Wii, Wii U & Switch e shops and seem like an easy company to work with. Nintendo might be using character negotiations to bridge themselves better to companies they want to work with. Isn't it a little peculiar that we know KT & Ubisoft are really close to Nintendo since before Ultimate and yet outside of a few spirits and one assist trophy we've got nothing else new from them? I mean Monolith Soft helped out on development of Breath of the Wild & they didn't get a new rep from XC2 in Ultimate until over 2 years after the base game released.
