Team Ninja’s Yohei Shimbori, director of Dead or Alive 5, has stated that the company may decide to make a Wii U version of Dead or Alive 5. Shimbori says that the company will listen to consumer feedback once Dead or Alive 5 is released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and then decide whether or not to create a Wii U version.
Are you also working on a Wii U version since Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge will launch alongside the system?
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.
Team Ninja has uploaded some fast and frantic footage of the Dead or Alive 5 demo that comes bundled with Ninja Gaiden 3’s first print run version next week. Team Ninja hasn’t confirmed whether the game is coming to Wii U, but Yosuke Hayashi, the head of the development studio, has hinted that the game could come to Nintendo’s forthcoming system.
We heard earlier this week that Virtua Fighter 5’s Akira would be appearing as a playable character in Dead or Alive 5, but he may not be the only one. Team Ninja developer Yousuke Hayashi has told Famitsu that because the development team have gone to so much trouble to secure Akira in Dead or Alive 5, we should expect to see other characters from the beloved fighting franchise. Dead or Alive 5 is rumoured to be coming to Wii U.
The latest episode of Inside Xbox contains exclusive new footage of Team Ninja’s forthcoming Dead or Alive 5. The game has already been confirmed for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but Team Ninja head Yosuke Hayashi, previously hinted that the team may bring Dead or Alive 5 to the Wii U, when the system launches later this year.
Yosuke Hayashi, current head of the development studio Team Ninja, has hinted that Dead or Alive 5 could come to the Wii U. Team Ninja are currently busy developing Ninja Gaiden 3, but that didn’t stop Hayashi saying that it was possible that Dead or Alive 5 would arrive on the platform. Dead or Alive 5 is scheduled to come out on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 sometime later this year.
“We’re thinking about all sorts of things. Right now, our Wii U development is focused just on Ninja Gaiden, but we’re definitely keeping other platforms in mind for DOA5.”
