1: the original story of this game starts with the story of the demon statue, it was divided into 2 pieces, one was given to the dragon ninjas, the other was given to SHINOBI (Joe musashi, from the Shinobi series). Seeing how this was the original story why not continue it? Mr. Joe musashi could use a series revamp right about now too... That aside I know team ninja might not have a lot of cash to throw around but the shinobi franchise could most likely be picked up cheap. Picture this my friends,Joe musashi and Ryu hayabusa in a coop mode owning black spider ninja with similar yet different moves and combos. Joe's weapon arsenal wouldn't have 9 weapons to choose from like ryu but I'm thinking various kunai attacks, dual wield kunai or double jump kunai spread throw like in his games. Using special agility moves to reach areas to open doors or gates to the next area. Attack plans for bosses or mobs to overcome due to high punishing difficulty. Friendly fire
2: Bosses from ng1, ng2, regiont mask, Shinobi 1,2,&3. Boss alliances like Volf (I think he just liked to fight) or regiont mask. They were characters you got attached to imo, it said in the fiend book or whatever it was called that the fiends fought each other over territories. Picture volf interrupting a fight between Ryu and Vazdah ruler of flame(I think his name is vazdah) and those two fighting while ryu continues his mission, or fight alongside volf for one boss fight. Ryu's bosses become joes, and vice versa. Point being we don't need more fresh characters when there are so many to work with any way.
3: Story should not be over thought, no need to know the personality of a ninja when you know all they would do is train thier whole life to kill, what kind of ice cream does ryu like??? Whoooo effin caaaaaaaaares. Dialog, ryu doesn't need to talk hardly at all, ninjas are supposed to keep quiet for the most part. If you wanna hear what "ninjas" would say then watch Naruto.
4:no multiplayer unless coop. PERIOD.
5: dlc: other characters (shinobi's characters like hotsuma, moritsune, ageha, hibana, kurohagane gamma, the lady ninjas that train under ryu, not sure thier names, final boss from ng1, doku [that would be bad ass], volf would be fun, genshin of course, dagra Dai lol OP, maybe even DOA characters? Or even Joe hayabusa?? Point being all these characters would be a lot of fun and people could play the game the way they want.)
Not all should be in the game but most of them damn it. I am sick of seeing fresh brand new characters that are weaker versions of the old. Look at Naruto for example, the damn show has been around for ten years and people still watch it, for the new characters that appear in filler episodes or the ones that have been around since the launch...... DO THE MATH TEAM NINJA! I got nothing left, if you want to correct my grammer or spell check me or act like were in English class I will not respond to you, if u don't like wat I say stop reading then, if you think anything or everything I wrote doesn't make sense I don't care what you think. If my knowledge of the ninja gaiden series is great enough, phukurself.
