Team Ninja: Wii U “very easy to develop for”

Team Ninja have expressed that the Wii U is “very easy to develop for”, and that Nintendo are continually responding to developer feedback regarding the hardware.

During an interview with the newly rebranded Nintendo Gamer, Team Ninja head Yosuke Hayashi and Ninja Gaiden 3 lead developer Fumihiko Yasuda have discussed the Wii U.

They state that the console is “very easy to develop for. We’re finding it very similar to develop for Wii U as for Xbox 360 and PS3”.

Hayashi further expanded, “They’ve asked us what we would want from the hardware, and when we give them feedback we can see that they’re definitely listening to it and making changes. The hardware is still constantly changing”.

“The Wii U’s touch control is like the Nintendo DS'”, Yasuda added. “We released a Ninja Gaiden game, Dragon Sword, on DS, so we want to introduce some elements from that into the Wii U version [of Ninja Gaiden 3]”.
