TGS: Ninja Theory to announce new title this week

Tuesday, 14 September 2010 20:12 GMT By Johnny Cullen

That sound you can hear is two and two being put together.

Enslaved developer Ninja Theory has said on its newly-made Twitter account that it’s to announce its new game at TGS this week.

Here’s the tweet:

“The new Ninja Theory game will be announced at Tokyo Game Show this week.”

Here’s your maths lesson for the day: Capcom’s announcing four new games during the show, while it’s been heavily rumoured Ninja Theory has been working on Devil May Cry 5.

The firm’s Keiji Inafune has said the sequel will have a “western feel” to it, while Ninja Theory boss Tameem Antoniades was even coy to VG247 about even debunking such a rumour during a Namco event in Barcelona in May.

Most likely, your answer is that we’ll see a Ninja Theory-developed Devil May Cry 5 announced at Tokyo Game Show this week.

Maybe.

Ninja Theory’s latest, Enslaved from Namco Bandai, releases on October 8 for PS3 and 360.

Via PSLS, PushSquare.

    I hope it is made by them. They are one of the few developer who could actually pull it off without problems. Their art-directions are always unique and refreshing and they put a lot of afford in character and storytelling. Hope to see a DMC with a great story and interesting characters who do more than just throw in some one-liners. Hope that if we see a love story we’d actually care about the loved ones.

    Can’t wait for Enslaved.

    @DaMan: Your comment doesn’t make any sense. DMC 2 has nothing to do with Western Developers or Ninja Theory. So … don’t be an idiot.

    #4 5 years ago
  5. DaMan

    I hope this TGS surprises Johnny :P .

    @above that’s how much faith I have in this dev, NT suck balls. either way a NT developed entry is the exact opposite of what fans of the series want. and it is guaranteed to alienate all of them. that’s exactly what happened back then with Dmc2, when they gave the series to another team.

    Ninja Theory will definitely be able to kick some much needed life and westernisms into DMC.

    Unless Capcom Japan limits them.

  7. joshua nash

    foolish question but are ninja theory games good or are they Bad ass-fucking-awesome?

    just want to know cause never played anything they’ve made

    #7 5 years ago
  8. YoungZer0

    @DaMan: I don’t care how much faith you don’t have in NT. It’s the right game, in the right hands. The DMC series was starting to show it’s age. DMC 4 while fun was just like every other DMC title before. It had the same problems, especially the lacy backtracking parts Capcom is known for. I’m glad they choose the right way.

    Also: DMC 2 was not developed by another Team. It was still Capcom. A young team, yes, but still Capcom. DMC 3 and 4 were also developed by other Teams.

    If you don’t know anything there is a solution for you. You already know what i’m going to say, aren’t ya?

    @joshua nash: Just wait a few more weeks and you can play Enslaved. They also made Heavenly Sword. Though the game was rushed, it still looked, played and felt great. It is pretty short though, a good rental if you ask me. The cutscenes are one of the best in the gameindustry, you can literately see the performance of the actors. And they are great actors. :D

  9. The Hindle

    Well if DMC 5 is a NT game expect it have a shit load of cut scenes and platforming and puzzle exploration basically.

    #9 5 years ago
  10. YoungZer0

    Cut scenes aren’t bad. And DMC had Platforming and Puzzles. But they all sucked hard and made the game so much slower.

    #10 5 years ago
  11. DaMan

    @YoungZero like I said, this isn’t what fans want. they will never be able to make the fighting half as good as Capcom, they might as well just drop the Dmc name and start a new series. unless they only outsource the story or cut scenes, this makes as much as sense as calling Dead Rising ‘Resident Evil’.

    aren’t a fan of the series? why don’t you play something that the likes of you prefer? oh, and Dmc2 was in fact made by a completely different team. my point was that they gave it to people who have no idea what the series is all about. parts 3 and 4 were given to someone who could repeat what Kamiya did, at least somewhat.

    why are you even here arguing? you have that abortion called HS, enjoy it.

    #11 5 years ago
  12. Johnny Cullen

    @7 In my book, Ninja Theory are a talented bunch. I liked Heavenly Sword, and Enslaved looks terrific.

    I, for one, won’t complain if they are developing DMC5.

    Yea HS was a bit crap but Enslaved is looking actually pretty good, i think it could be the sleeper hit of the year.

    #14 5 years ago
  15. Erthazus

    I’m affraid they won’t make decent DMC 5. DMC don’t need this beautiful slow paced action like in Enslaved or HS
    + it’s probably going to get rid of some anime elements from it. I’m affraid like Retard said: DMC 2 is coming.
    and i can’t agree more with him on this one.

    #15 5 years ago
  16. DaMan

    see, even this thing agrees.

    #16 5 years ago
  17. YoungZer0

    @DaMan: Fuck the fans, seriously. Fans want more of the same. More of the same is a good formula if you want to make one sequel. If you want to make a series, you’ll have to move on. Sorry, but that’s the truth. And no, DMC2 was made by Capcom. Do some homework and shut up. They failed at DMC2 because they didn’t knew what made the first game so successful.

    NT does. A lot of the Staff from NT are fans from the DMC Series. They won’t fuck it up. I’m so sick and tired of paranoid Ney-Sayers like you and Erthazus. Get some sleep children. It’s always “OMG! They are going to change something, this game is going to suck, i just know it.” Seriously, stfu.

    @Erthazus: No Anime Elements? Fantastic, even more reason why i’d love to play this game.

    #17 5 years ago
  18. DaMan

    nah, fuck you and the likes of yourself, YoungZero ;) and it’s not about doing the same again and again, it’s about the core elements which make Dmc such a fantastic series.. I see you really don’t get it. say, Bayonetta is an evolution of it, and that makes perfect sense, turning it into something totally different however is nothing but silly.

    like I said, my point about the team was that it has been handled by someone who weren’t up to the task, which is exactly what NT are as well.

    go ahead and check the credits for Dmc2, probably even Gamefaqs have them. then name me some lead designer/anything who worked on the original.

    NT make different things, no matter how you look at it. I don’t see what is there to argue about tbh.

    #18 5 years ago
  19. Erthazus

    @17, Do you want or not, but anime style is the right direction for the Devil May Cry series. It Was created by Japanese, it was created with that style in mind and it was created by the Hideki Kamiya. It must have this atmosphere.

    Maybe Capcom failed at DMC 2, but they sure did great with DMC 3 and DMC 4 was cool too, just more of the same but with new character.

    how you know that NT are fans of DMC? How you possibly know that?

    + there is a huge fanbase over this franchise and i don’t want to turn it to the God Of War or Enslaved. It’s too early to judge, but Ninja theory is not made for this franchise. I want to be wrong.

    #19 5 years ago
  20. zoopdeloop

    When a developer-team passes a franchise to another the results most of the times are disappointing.Fans of the series will really have doubts with this one.
    Off course there is a small chance NT “may” deliver…but don’t expect much.

    #20 5 years ago
  21. Erthazus

    @20 I’m a huge Devil May Cry fan and i’m sure not expecting something better with this franchise. Not saying that NT is bad, but they are not up to the task. It’s not their formula.

    If Sony could give GOW 3 to them, i’m sure they could do it. But DMC? I doubt that.

    #21 5 years ago
  22. DaMan

    you really are a clown, dude. HS was their take on GoW.

    @22 and you are a Retard. Learn to read faggot. I said nothing about HS.

    #23 5 years ago
  24. DaMan

    it’s dull living in that village of yours isn’t it? E, say do you have some real people to talk to, like anyone at all?

    you said if Sony gave GoW3 to them, they could do that. but they already did a similar game, and failed in the gameplay aspect. which means they wouldn’t be able to develop a good GoW game.

    #24 5 years ago
  25. Erthazus

    “but they already did a similar game”

    I know that you are fucking retarded, but to think that you are that stupid comparing HS to GoW is beyond something. Please continue Retard, you amaze me with your knowledge…

    “it’s dull living in that village of yours isn’t it? E, say do you have some real people to talk to, like anyone at all?”

    and Clairvoyance. Clearly you are an internet psychologist. You have already crossed all boundaries of your stupidity.

    #25 5 years ago
  26. DaMan

    erm, yeah.. if you can’t see the similarities there’s nothing to discuss. I’m sure there’re quite a few who think the same but, really oh well then.

    ‘clairvoyance’? look, I’ll tell you a secret. this isn’t the way to speak in another tongue, you can’t just plain talk in ukrainian or something and translate that.

    #26 5 years ago
  27. YoungZer0

    @Erthazus: Hm, how do i know something so obvious? Just how could I know this? Maybe, i just did my homework? Hm?

    Also: “It’s too early too judge”, yet you just go ahead and judge. *rolleyes*

    “It’s not there formular.” Hm, let’s check their last games, shall we? Enslaved: action-adventure game. Heavenly Sword: action-adventure game. What was DMC again? Oh, right an action-adventure game. Guess you’re wrong. Again.

    @DaMan: Oh, fuck Bayonetta, this game was so full of shit. Turning it into something else wouldn’t change the fact that it was shit to begin with.

    Motherfucker, who said that NT is going to change the Core-elements from the DMC Series? Who said they are going to make it COMPLETELY different? Who said that, Mr. Nay-Sayer?

    What are the Core-elements from the DMC series? Go ahead, tell me. Is it the combat? NT can do that. Is it the puzzles? NT can do better. Is it the Art-Direction? NT can do that. Is it the flawed Jumping mechanics? NT can do better. Is it the boring story? NT could do better. Is it the ridiculous cut-scenes? NT just get’s the same guy Capcom got for the job and done.

    No problem. No problem at all.

    You’re just paranoid and full of shit. Just like your fellow mate Erthazus.

    “look, I’ll tell you a secret.”

    I have a secret for you too: you are a Retard.
    If you don’t know what that word means (I hope so that you do) than you are more than stupid.

    “if you can’t see the similarities there’s nothing to discuss.”

    you amaze me more in your stupidity. It’s like searching similarities in Half-Life and Portal. Both shooters and have silent characters.. both have shooting.. dU~Uh. buth teh ar similaH!

    @YoungZero, “yet you just go ahead and judge. *rolleyes*”

    There is hope, of course.

    “Hm, let’s check their last games, shall we?”

    Actually you are wrong. Thats just GENRE, not formula. DMC uses fast paced formula, while NT use something different.

    “No problem. No problem at all.”

    We will see about that. Maybe you are right, maybe wrong. But NT never did something like DMC in combat style.

    #29 5 years ago
  30. DaMan

    @YoungZero see, you can keep your opinions to yourself, nobody cares. since every single Dmc fan will tell you that game is easily superior to Dmc4 and probably even the original. both the critical and fans’ reception are facts, you’re truly irrelevant in this case.. even less relevant because you don’t even like Dmc to begin with.

    the core elements would be combat and the emphasis on combos, NT can hardly implement plausible fighting mechanics at all, let alone something like Capcom or Tecmo are doing.

    @E
    heh. whatever, retard. your loss, rofl. oh, and you only need to read some of the reviews (like say, Edge’s one) to see how much in denial you are. one thing though, if so many people call you a tool something’s truly wrong with that idiosyncrasy of yours.

    #30 5 years ago
  31. YoungZer0

    @DaMan. See you should keep your opinion to yourself, because it’s full of shit.

    And you’re wrong. I’m a Fan of the DMC Series. But I’m also a tired DMC Fan. I want the games to be more serious. I want them to change. Bayonetta had everything i always disliked about a DMC game. It was full of Ridiculousness. Sure the combat was awesome, but still too Ridiculous. “A true DMC Fan”, man fuck you. The True DMC Fans i talked to didn’t like this game. For the same reasons. You’re just talking about yourself.

    When i say Ridiculous i don’t mean the awesome fighting-cutscenes. I mean the story and the characters. Also: People always complained that the Fights in the Cutscenes are awesome but you couldn’t do them ingame, so maybe NT can fill that gap.

    “Bla bla, NT can’t do it.” Have you played Enslaved? If you have, send me a copy, if you haven’t shut the fuck up. Who says they are going to make DMC just like their previous games? They know the strengths of the series, they aren’t going to change much about it. What kind of moron are you anyway? Have been playing too much games from epic? Because GeoW 1-3 looks the same? Do you really think that a developer can do only one genre? What about Capcom then? Hm? See the pattern of your stupidity?

    @Erthazus: Maybe they do now? Give the combat more speed and you’re done.

    it is you who are full of shit, YoungZero. the fact of the matter is that your ‘serious’ remark says more about your narrow, undeveloped and/or teenage mind. anyway, like I said you’re irrelevant, I don’t know what imaginery fans you’re talking about. the fans loved it, unless they”re some butt heart pseudo christians or naive angsty boys.. anyway.. your choice, can’t argue with facts though. fanbase loved it, critics loved it. period.

    you are not a fan, since you yourself admitted the pacing of GoW and the combos being what Dmc is centered on is boring to you. logic fail, buddy.

    anyway, like I said no matter how you look at things, NT developed games are different and hence they’re a very bad choice if you want to make a game appealing to the fanbase. look at how the recent Metroid performed, look at Silent Hill 4, etc. I don’t know what you’re still arguing about, you made it clear that you would like something that isn’t aimed at previous games’ fanbase.

    Ugh, the west has 99% never been good at imitating japanese franchises, especially stylish action games like DMC or Bayonetta, their games look good on the surface (God of War saga) but they fall apart after the first playthrough.

    #34 5 years ago
  35. YoungZer0

    Jesus Christ, you’re a real fighter, aren’t ya? Must have been the reason why you survived that abortion.

    Are you seriously say that the Storyline in DMC Games have been Adult? It’s the same Rescue the world Bullshit we come to expect from Japanese developer. If that’s serious for you, oh well, you’re full of shit anyway. Can’t argue here.

    Fanbase loves it, sure. Critics loves it, sure. Will they all love it when the title is just the same thing? Unlikely. Nobody does that.

    Who are “The Fans” you’re talking about anyway? I thought your username was “DaMan”? You didn’t even know that DMC 2 was developed by Capcom themselves. You’re a joke.

    OMG, so something about the series is going on my nerves. I can’t be a fan anymore. Thank you for clarifying that. I never saw it that way.

    Hey, if you criticize DMC 2, you’re not a real DMC fan. That’s your logic. You moron.

    NT can do different. They only produced 3 Games so far. And you’re judging already. You haven’t even played Enslaved, but DAMN their combat is too slow. Have you even seen anything from the game? No you haven’t. NT can do. Will do probably better. End of the Story.

    I don’t understand why you’re even talking. Since you already said you don’t like the game, before it’s announcement.

    Your examples are fantastic. btw. The Metroid Prime Series was completely different. Metroid other M. is different too. Different Teams, different Games. Still successful and loved by fans and newcomers a like. Thanks for mentioning those great examples. See, to be honest i never cared for Metroid before they released Other M. Because i like games with stories. See how that works? You expand your fanbase.

    Also What about Silent Hill 4? The Room was developed by Konami.

    you say I’m stubborn yet reply with that wall of blah blah blah? judging by your progressively moronic comments, I ‘d say you are the victim of that act.

    if we even skip the fact that you’re a hypocritical idiot for calling Dmc ‘not serious’ while totally enjoying GoW and it’s sex minigame alongside it’s distasteful, retarded depiction of violence, it’s still evident that your a dumbass because my point was about your narrow mindedness. Bayonetta has basically a psychedelic, intentionally a bit crazy plot and everything. you, describing such a thing as ;unserious’ and using that as a basis for your distaste is nothing but moronic. or juvenile, choose your pick.

    Dmc 2 was developed by one team, 3 by another. what are you still babbling about? both Re and Sengoku Basara were made by Capcom as well, it weren’t the same guys though. still not convinced?

    so let me get this straight, dumbfuck: you dislke the ‘unserious’ style of it, the (relatively) anime looks, the gameplay centered on what I ‘ve said, the pace.. what are you a fan of? i might as well say i’m a fan of HS since I enjoyed the soundtrack (not really).

    NT failed at implementing even a simple fighting gameplay scheme, they will fail harder at creating something as complex as Dmc. this isn’t a fact yet, but this is a very much plausible assumption.

    I was talking about Another M, dumbass. it performed poorly, Sh4 is another example where the game was changed and the fanbase hated it. it wa salso made by a new team (SH1-3 were done by Team Silent). why don’t you just shut the fuck up, dude? you make yourself look more and more ignorant every time you post.

    Talented, yes? Able to create a DMC game? No. Platinum Games would have been able do it. Team Ninja would have been able to do it. But not Ninja Theory.

    A bitt like getting Criterion to make the next Gran Tourismo. Very talented but a totaly different design philosophy.

    @Retard, DaMan,
    “heh. whatever, retard. your loss, rofl. oh”

    Can you speak a little bit better? Because you sound like a Retard Orc.

    “like say, Edge’s one”

    I really give a fuck about someone’s lame opinion especially from your precious EDGE that likes Halo to Death. No thank you. I platinumed all GOW games and i know what games are similar to them. You sir are stupid and don’t know that. There are a lot of differences between them. A lot.
    HS have just slow paced action like GOW, but this is not GOW. As i said before, go and compare Half-Life to Portal, idiot.

    @YoungZero, ” It was full of Ridiculousness.”

    Actually that game must be that way. It’s the style of it. Not every game must be serious. Japanese people love this style and for them this is serious, not some Call OF Duty where statue of terrorist is in the Red Square (LOL).
    DMC is not Enslaved, HS, GOW. It’s different so is Bayonetta or Vanquish.

    I hope it’s not DMC. Not because I think NT aren’t capable of doing a DMC game justice, but because I think DMC is toss.

    haha. i see the retard thing really got to you. I’m tempted to continue all this until your brain crashes. dude, you don’t even have to post a reply i can already tell what you’re going to say. keep telling that to yourself buddy. it might actually become true one day. I’ve merely used their review as an example, the similarities are obvious to anyone who played these games for more than a day. if you played them for that long and still can’t see a crap, you ‘re evidently retarded like I keep saying. it was an obvious take on GoW formula, with some slight similarities to Dw as well.

    also lol @ your silly fps examples, you ‘re the one comparing Halo to Unreal, clown. you’re the one who said CE was just a Serious Sam clone. you’re one messed up mental kiddo, seek help and get a life man. before it’s too late.
