In an brief article posted on IGN, it is disclosed that a number of new job listing have opened at Secret Level for a high profile Sega IP that is in development for both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
The game is apparently supposed to be character based, but the genre is yet undisclosed. I bet we’ll here a lot more about this at E3. Sega has a lot of past franchises and games that they could choose to continue, will be interesting to see which one they ended up choosing.
With the New movie coming out, and the western love of all things blood odds are it will be Shinobi .
It can’t be Streets Of Rage as that never came out till 1991, and a Golde Axe update would be pointless
What ever game it is, I don’t like it the idea of Secret Level handling dvelopment.
SEGA Japan should be doing it In-House , not handing it out.
The likes of Secret Level should be updating Mega Drive games that SEGA Japan never made in House.
A new Shinobi would be nice. The PS2 iterations were good for what they were, but felt rushed. In fact, both Shinobi and Nightshade could have been developed for the Dreamcast, easily (albeit with a slightly scaled down polygon count and deeper more intricate textures). Ninja Gaiden walked all over them, graphically.
They were rushed , from what Shinobi had 9 months of development time, and I think it was the same for Nightshade (which looked even worse) and not the biggest budget, and boy does it show . Though to be fair Shinobi wasn’t that bad.
Ninja Gaiden had a massive budget and over 4 and half years development time. In fact it started out as NA@MI game
