Things have been mysteriously quiet about this game as far as North America is concerned. Itagaki promises it will still be released in North and South America, but there are rumors NoA won't be the one to publish it.
However, Valhalla and Itagaki just opened themselves up to media interviews, so maybe there's some news incoming.

Here is Itagaki's comment about the Unseen 64 video I posted above:
I never want to offend Unseen64. 'Cuz I haven't met with them in recent 25 yrs. Perhaps they have some reason to write the article. But idk (Source)
I also noticed that when someone posted the rumor about Xseed, Itagaki neither "Liked" nor commented on it, even tho he has interacted with pretty much every other post on his Facebook wall in the last couple of days.

Early impressions of the game have been pretty scathing, citing poor frame rates, unresponsive controls, and cheap difficulty. Itagaki seems to be taking it in stride, but it wasn't too cool of him to blame the poor reception on lack of player skill.

Well, that's the thing. Ninja Gaiden on Xbox had a positive reception, and its difficulty wasn't blamed on technical issues. Ninja Gaiden II was criticized a bit in that regard, but I think even Itagaki admitted the development was a little rushed.
Shrikeswind: Wait what am I celebrating about the excuse is that I had COVID for basically all of November. Wear your masks kids.

nocturnal YL: Nice to see you here Shrikes, and sorry to hear about you having COVID-19. Speaking of Christmas, the holiday mood seems to be a bit better where I work compared to the last few years.

Shrikeswind: Thread should be up tonight. I need to leave for an interview in a little over an hour and I hadn't even slept last night.

Shrikeswind: Sidebar, I never thought I'd see the day where staying up to ungodly hours was a sign of health. Covid be wild.

nocturnal YL: Remember NinDB Top 25? My list would have been slightly different now, even if I keep the series composition: (24) Ys VIII → (18) Ys Origin; (9) Atelier Totori DX → (8) Atelier Firis DX.

Shrikeswind: Finally finished this year's Christmas thread. Hoo boy has this been a stressful month. Sorry for the delay. And for that matter, sorry for any dead links in the playlists. No time to actually fix it, I need to get to bed.

nocturnal YL: Random trivia time: in Super Mario Galaxy 1, it's possible to swim in lava. The reason is that the overlapping water allows the Ice Flower to make platforms. www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUmJLqo8kWg
