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.
