The creators of Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive are interested in Nintendo’ latest tech.
Team Ninja has worked with Nintendo in the past, and we even got Ninja Gaiden: Razor’s Edge first on Wii U. Fans of the Japanese developer were really hoping that Dead or Alive 5 would come to Nintendo’s system, but we have what looks to be a confirmation that this isn’t going to happen. On the bright side, the developers have said that they are still interested in the tech. Here’s what Team Ninja’s Yosuke Hayashi had to say about the U:
“Of course, I think there are games that would be good for Wii U. So I think we need to still see what exactly those games they are and how you make a game for Wii U that is perfect for the Wii U. So if we get a chance to make a game like that, well, maybe we can think about it then. But right now we have no plans to port existing games to Wii U.”

With the upcoming release of the Nintendo Wii U, many gamers are wondering if we’ll see Team Ninja’s Dead or Alive 5 on this new system. While no one is completely sure if this game will end up on Nintendo’s new console, we do know that the developers are considering it, and the sales of Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge will be a major factor in their decision. So if you want to see Dead or Alive 5 on Wii U, I’d suggest you consider picking up Ninja Gaiden 3. How many of you readers even want this game? Share your opinion in the comments. -Greg Boe (admin)
We’ve already briefly covered the possibility of the upcoming Dead or Alive 5 coming to Wii U, but today, we’ve gotten more concrete evidence that this version is under consideration. According to Team Ninja’s Yohei Shimbori:
Right now, we’re doing our best to get the game ready for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. After players get their hands on Dead or Alive 5 we want to hear what they think and based on that we’ll see if we should make a Wii U version.
I really enjoyed last year’s Dead or Alive: Dimensions for Nintendo 3DS, and since that game brought Nintendo fans up to speed all the way up to DOA 4, this would be a perfect time to put Dead or Alive 5 on Nintendo Wii U. Either way, this game is worth the purchase when it releases later this year on other current home consoles. Who else wants Dead or Alive 5 on Wii U? -Greg Boe (admin)
At Tokyo Game Show 2011, Dead or Alive 5 was announced for a release later this year on PS3 and Xbox 360. Many fans were disappointed that the female characters, who were sexualized insanely in previous titles (especially the Dead or Alive Xtreme sub-series) are seen wearing more modest outfits this time around. Head of development, Yosuke Hayashi has said that Dead or Alive 5 may actually be coming to the Wii U. This would make sense, because of Ninja Gaiden 3 coming to the new console, another project of Team Ninja. What do you readers think? Share your thoughts in the comments.
