The studio said that while it "shares the enthusiasm for the return" of its classic franchises, it currently has no specific details to share regarding the reboots.
Last week, the Korean press reported that Team Ninja was planning to revive two of its classic game series, Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive.
According to Korean sites, including Ruliweb and Inven, during the G-Star panel, the studio head Fumihiko Yasuda gave a talk where he reportedly said the Team Ninja was considering making Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive reboots, although he didn't provide much detail on the revival of the franchises.
In a recent statement to VGC, however, the studio elaborated on Yasuda's comments in English and noted that it currently has no information to share about the future of either of the franchises.
The company's creative director Tom Lee said that the two titles are "synonymous" with "the studio history and reputation" and that "when speaking about the development of [Team Ninja's] past and future projects, both of these important titles cannot be left without mention." However, he noted that currently, the studio has "no details or information to share on either of these franchises."
“Like many of our dedicated fans, we share the enthusiasm for the return of these beloved titles. And we will be sure to provide a proper update (if and) when that day arrives," Lee told VGC.
So apparently, there are no specific plans regarding the revival of the studio's classic franchises at the moment and it remains to be seen whether Team Ninja will release the reboots at all.
