Ninja Gaiden 3 confirmed

Team Ninja returns to its roots with Ninja Gaiden, Dead or Alive

Team Ninja leader Yosuke Hayashi explained that the last few years were difficult for the developer. After partnering with Nintendo to create Metroid: Other M, however, the team felt confident enough in its new identity to return to two beloved franchises that made the developer what it is.

The first of these is Dead or Alive. The franchise returns to active duty on the Nintendo 3DS with Dead or Alive: Dimensions, a fighting game that includes all the story points between the first game and the five-year-old Dead or Alive 4 -- plus some extra cut scenes to keep the plot consistent. Team Ninja hopes to recapture the hardcore fighting game audience with Dimensions as well as please longtime fans of the franchise.

Next up is Ninja Gaiden 3. The game is so early in development, the developer only showed journalists a piece of concept art. The image, however, defines both the new game's direction and the new identity of Team Ninja (see pic above).

Hayashi said to expect more information on the new Ninja Gaiden early next year.

Lastly, Team Ninja announced a new collaboration with developer Kou Shibusawa on a game called Ni-oh. The title takes Team Ninja away from its ninja themes and into the world of samurai action gameplay. No details on when the game is due out, or for which systems.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
