There are many recent sources pointing to a new Ninja Gaiden already on the way and could be featured as part of the Xbox Series X catalog.
As you all know, there are less than 48 hours left for Microsoft to host the Xbox Games Showcase, an event dedicated to presenting video games that will get added to the Xbox Series X catalog. It is the reason why during the last hour’s rumors have arisen regarding the presentation of Fable 4, Forza Motorsport 8, and more news from Battletoads. But now more information comes to us pointing out that Ninja Gaiden could be one of the great surprises of the event.
According to a user on Reddit, he has collected clues from different insiders pointing out that a new Ninja Gaiden may already be on the way. The first of the sources published yesterday a gif on Twitter belonging to Ninja Gaiden. What is relevant is that it is a user who in the past has revealed details such as the PS5 development kit and the date of the Nintendo Direct Mini that happened yesterday.
The second of the sources have quoted the aforementioned tweet explaining that “A beloved Ninja Franchise will be joining the Xbox Portfolio if rumors are to be believed. Guess we shall see soon enough.” These join a third source that, while not mentioning Ninja Gaiden, does speak of the return of an acclaimed franchise. In all, there are many signs that point to a possible Ninja Gaiden for Xbox Series X.
As we can see, this information is based only on rumors since nothing related to the Ninja Gaiden saga has been confirmed, however, there are some factors that we can rely on to give it some truth. On the one hand, many years have passed since any game in this franchise was released, while on the other, there are many players who want this saga to return in an improved version.
For the time being, all we can do is wait until some official announcement happens. We remind you that the Xbox Games Showcase will take place this Thursday, July 23, at 9:00 AM PT.
