Tomonobu Itagaki, known to many as the creator of the Dead or Alive fighting game series and the rebirth of the Ninja Gaiden series, founded Itagaki Games and is once again ready to play games. This became known from the game designer’s Facebook page.
Itagaki’s last game was The Devil’s Third, which was released exclusively on Wii U in 2015 and did not gain much popularity among players. After that, the 53-year-old developer spent four years teaching.
I’ve been teaching for the last four years, but now I feel like I want to make games again. So I started a new studio.
Itagaki said he is ready to work with Microsoft again. It would be an honor for him.
I know Microsoft is still aggressive and willing to play games. If they contact me, I will be honored to mail it.
Previously, information was circulated on the network that Microsoft wants to acquire a Japanese studio, but so far no specifics have been received.
