Team Ninja boss: Bayonetta is dated

Platinum Games’ bum-flashing, gun-toting witch romp Bayonetta is already showing its age in the game design department, according to Team Ninja’s Yosuke Hayashi.
Speaking during a chinwag with Play Magazine (via TSA), Hayashi said that although the sultry actioner packed in some solid ideas, wrinkles are already starting to show their face – and the same goes for Ninja Gaiden II, apparently.
“I think Ninja Gaiden II is already outdated. That’s why we are making Ninja Gaiden III from scratch. Bayonetta has some good stuff but Bayonetta is old, game design wise, already," he commented.
Hayashi-san went on to state how the studio isn’t particularly fussed with the difficulty setting this time around, and is instead more focused on cementing its latest Ninja Gaiden title as the premier “3D action game.”
“Difficulty level is not the main element we are focusing on,” he explained. “The focus we have is that a new Ryu Hayabusa is the main character for Ninja Gaiden III. Also, we are aiming to be the number one 3D action game. If we can do that we are fine not focusing on difficulty level."
"We don’t care. But to prevent misunderstanding, Ninja Gaiden fans will still really love it. That is our responsibility. We make sure the fans of the series are satisfied by our game.”

no sh1t. doesn't help that the main character looks like a bulldyke, either.

Team Ninja has ALWAYS outperformed whatever Capcom/Kamiya (and now Kamiya is solo) could come up with.
Ninja Gaiden has always had more depth than Devil May Cry and Ninja Gaiden 3 will easily top Bayonetta's combat system.

Lol, Bayonetta will still be an all around better game than NG3

I like how he's saying a game that's not even out yet is going to be newer than a game that's been out for over a year now.

He must have only played the PS3 version, cause the "other" version wasn't as bad.

I loved the NG Trilogy for NES but to me the next gen ones were souless and they stripped away Ryu's personality and heart completely. If it's one thing Bayonetta had it was a coherent story and characters with personality and soul. You could tell the creators weren't trying to make a game just to compete and out do other developers, they made a game for the purpose of entertaining potential fans.
