Ryu Hayabusa returns for another bloodbath.

Fans of the ultra-violent ninja action-adventure series, Ninja Gaiden, rejoice yet.
Yosuke Hayashi, the current leader of Team Ninja leader has made an official announcement of the latest sequel to the wildly popular (and notoriously difficult) series at Tokyo Game Show today.

Along with the announcement of the new Ninja Gaiden title, fans were surprised to learn that the previously pronounced dead game, Ni-Oh, has also been revived by the team.

Originally developed between KOEI Corporation, Kou Shibusawa Productions, and Kurosawa Productions (purportedly as a motion picture that was subsequently cancelled back in 2005), Ni-Oh is reportedly based on a previously lost script from the iconic Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa. Depicting the story of a blonde-haired samurai in the turbulent times of war-torn 16th century Japan, the game were highly regarded with fever pitch anticipation. Announced in 2995 as a PlayStation 3 exclusive by Tecmo's corporate partner Koei, the title went into development limbo thereafter. With the involvement of Hayashi, Team Ninja is now taking over the earlier developmental work by Koei, working with Koei founder himself, Kou Shibusawa on the project. While no new footage were shown, the imminent release of the title seemed promising.

While there were also no images or footage of the new Ninja Gaiden displayed during the show, a concept image featuring a close-up of a bloodied Ryu Hayabusa were shown.

And that's all we have for now, though it's pretty nifty stuffs to be excited about already, given the newly rejuvenated state of Team Ninja following original founder Tomonobu Itagaki's departure, and their terrific work on Metroid: Other M.
