Dead or Alive 5 might come to Wii U in the future
Team Ninja, who are currently working on Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor’s Edge for the Wii U, have said that their upcoming PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game Dead or Alive 5 might come to the Wii U in the future. Speaking to Siliconera, Dead or Alive 5 director Yohei Shimbori says that the company may adopt the same approach it did with Ninja Gaiden 3. That is, releasing it on the current gen consoles, then waiting to see how gamers respond before deciding to do a Wii U version. We’ll have to wait and see how this tactic pans out with Ninja Gaiden 3, which will come out on the Wii U later this year.
Dead or Alive is a peculiar fighting game, in that its main selling point are playable female characters with “bouncy” figures. It’s definitely one of the games that appeals to the more mature audience. Team Ninja is currently working on the Wii U version of Ninja Gaiden 3, which will include lots of improvements and new content compared to the Xbox 360 and PS3 game that was released a few months ago. Dead or Alive 5 is set for release this September, which means a Wii U port could come out in early 2013.
