Rumor: Team Ninja following Itagaki out
According to Mielke, "as many as three dozen or more" Team Ninja staffers are walking out of Tecmo, and serving the company with their own class-action lawsuit regarding unpaid bonuses. On top of that, Tecmo may have broken the law by failing to report the lawsuits to their shareholders.
Tecmo did say that Team Ninja would be intact and working on new games -- they just didn't say who they'd be making those games for. We weren't really expecting another Ninja Gaiden DS game anyway (since the first one bombed in Japan), but now we can really let go of the possibility.
