We last heard of Ni-Oh! in 2012. The game, based on an Akira Kurosawa script, was announced in 2005. "I heard that it's been stopped, but it's actually very much in development," Tecmo Koei's Yosuke Hayashi told Venture Beat. "We still need a little time before showing it off, but it is starting to come together."
In Japan, everything changes in the spring. And this April 1, Tecmo Koei, from the sound of it, is making some big changes. At least, on paper.

Just because Team Ninja, the developers behind Dead or Alive, are all out of fucks to give about releasing hyper-sexualized games, that doesn't mean they're not updating Dead or Alive 5. The latest update sneaks in, wait for it, a breast jiggling Easter Egg. Shocking!
Dead or Alive 5 is coming to the PS Vita currently known under its working title, Dead or Alive 5 Plus. Above is the logo. Other than that, info is scant. Japanese game site Game Impress Watch wonders what does the "plus" refer to?
Around five years ago (or so), it was a bit of a thing in Japan for game companies to release mousepads, featuring female characters with large breasts for PC users to rest their hands on. So no surprises here with these upcoming Dead or Alive 5 mousepads—nor is it surprising to see them pop up five years later. Not…
Despite feedback from Tecmo's overseas offices to "tone down the sexuality" of Dead or Alive 5's female fighters, the game's developers bravely pressed ahead in the name of fan service.
There's lots of crazy, over-the-top elements in the just-released Dead or Alive 5. Clown cannons, giant elevators of death and tanks blasting away in he background… all these things happen while the brawlers of Team Ninja's latest fighting game are vying for victory. And you can't win all the martial arts matches all…
Here's the latest trailer for Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2. The game is slated for the PS3, the Xbox 360, and Wii U. It'll be out in Japan by the end of this year.
This is a couple minutes of gameplay for Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge, the Wii U launch title that carves through dough-headed stooges like this and still can slice a tomato like this.
And that's really what the Ninja Gaiden series is all about, isn't it?
Mega Man co-creator Keiji Inafune is taking a stab at the Ninja Gaiden series with Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, and by "taking a stab" I mean actively attempting to stab the star of the main Ninja Gaiden series in the throat with a sword.
Earlier this month, a mysterious game called Yaiba was announced by Keiji Inafune. The game is not just an Inafune title. It's a Ninja Gaiden title.
They don't call them "Team Ninja" for nothing. Tecmo's development unit, Team Ninja, is working on a new Ninja Gaiden game: the previously announced Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor's Edge.
