Ninja Gaiden 2 is 15 hours long, says Itagaki

By Patrick Garratt, Tuesday, 3 June 2008 07:02 GMT

Team Ninja boss Tomonobu Itagaki has told Kikizo that almost-released action slasher Ninja Gaiden 2 contains roughly 15 hours of play time.

“But I think that we’ve got enough in there with enough incentive to make you want to replay at least one more time,” said the developer in what’s an unusually humble interview. Maybe it’s because Ninja Gaiden’s run its course.

“We were able to include everything we wanted, so there would be little reason to go and do a three or a four, except just to keep the franchise alive,” he said. “So I feel like I’m ready to move on with different plans.”
