Eagerly Awaited Koei PS3 Title Still In Development

Illustration for article titled Eagerly Awaited Koei PS3 Title Still In Development

Koei's Ni-Oh is based on an unearthed script from Japanese director Akira Kurosawa (Yojimbo, Seven Samurai, Rashomon ) and has been M.I.A. for a while. Good news, Koei is still hard at work on it.

Ni-Oh traces the journey of a half-Japanese blonde-haired samurai in 16th century Japan. When asked about the game, Koei apologized for the lack of an update about Ni-Oh and said it was working feverishly on the title.

Expect more info about the PS3 game sooner than later. At one time there appears to have been a Ni-Oh movie planned, but that seems to be canceled or on hold.

Wicked. A new blip has appeared on my radar.

Let's just hope it (a) doesn't suck and (b) gets localized faster than Way of the Samurai 3.

And while we're on the subject,

someone localize Way of the Samurai 3.
