Tomonobu Itagaki used to be THE guy at Team Ninja, spearheading franchises like Dead or Alive and the reboot of Ninja Gaiden. While Itagaki hasn't been part of Team Ninja for quite some time, he's still more than willing to talk about his time with some of those big-name game franchises.
In an interview with Dextero, Itagaki was asked whether or not he thought Ryu Hayabusa would be a good fit for Smash Bros. Ultimate. Check out his comments on the matter below.
“Super Smash Bros is a very popular game. I think it’s a stage big enough for Ryu Hayabusa to play an active role.”
