Ninja Gaiden doesn’t have the “power,” says DMC creator

Devil May Cry creator Hideki Kamiya clearly doesn’t mince his words. He can’t be bothered playing Ninja Gaiden. It doesn’t have the power to interest him.

“I’ve never played Ninja Gaiden, and to be honest, I’m not that interested,” he said in the latest issue of EGM.

“The quality that gets you interested in something is that you feel something for them. Like on TV, or a movie, or a song, or whatever. You just feel something, and you get pulled into it, and then that’s how you pick something up.

“But Ninja Gaiden just didn’t have that power, so that’s why I wasn’t interested in it.”

Japanese developers, eh? Why can’t they all just get along?
