Ni-Oh (Oni) Still in Development? Action Done by Team Ninja?


According to the latest Famitsu, Ni-Oh has been changed from an action game to an action-RPG and it seems the action is being developed by none other then Team Ninja.

This game was announced in 2004 under the name “Oni” from Koei before the PS3 even released. The game was supposed to have used a lost script written by Akira Kurosawa (famous Japanese director/writer). It features a samurai with blonde hair looking to find his own identity in war-torn Japan during the 16th century.

The game was going to be based on a movie as well. The movie has been since canceled, however Koei insisted the game is still in development.

    i remember this game announced and me being turned off by the Koei name. But if they are just the publisher…well thats different.

    It’s been confirmed at the TGS but it may not be a PS3 exclusive anymore.
