Tecmo Koei Splits Team Ninja into Two Separate Dev Groups

Posted on March 26, 2013 AT 12:13pm

Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive developer Team Ninja is splitting into two separate dev groups, Tecmo Koei announced.

According to the Tecmo Koei document, which was translated by Siliconera, Team Ninja is now comprised of Ichigaya Development Group 1—headed by current Team Ninja lead Yosuke Hayashi— and Ichigaya Development Group 2—headed by Fatal Frame producer Keisuke Kikuchi.

There was no mention by Tecmo Koei as to what this split-up would mean for the games Team Ninja develops, or whether as a result of the division new games and new priorities are in the pipeline.
