Why doesn't NT just focus on making art games?

Good point...Nariko is kinda ninja-y


More Samurai than Ninja. I find it odd that they've only made 1 Asian style game with a name like Ninja Theory not counting Kung Fu Chaos of course which nobody remembers anyway.


Enslaved is asian style kinda. It's based off of Journey to the West.

Having the main character essentially be the monkey king...that's a pretty big connection lol.

Do you consider Johnny Mnemonic to be "asian" simply because there are Japanese people in it?

Asians make turtle soup and drink turtle blood.

I said essentially. I don't know if he was actually a kind because I didn't give a damn about the story, I just fawned over the environments. He had a tail. Dressed like Sun WuKong, had the crown, and an extendable staff and was extremely powerful. Close enough.

I heard Heavenly Sword 2 was canceled because NT wanted to publish it for Xbox to get more money, and as Sony exclusive it pissed sony off.

First of all, I didn't say Enslaved was "asian" we were discussing the asian connection. You quoted it yourself, I figure you probably should've read it instead of having a kneejerk reaction.

Second of all, what the hell is Johnny Mnemonic?

Didn't have a tail and the crown is what "Enslaved" him but I suppose so. So Ninja Theory makes a game about a Samurai, a Chinese thug, and and a British thug.

They should have called themselves "Punk Theory" instead. lol
