We have a somewhat clearer picture of how Ninja Gaiden III will turn out on Wii U. Based on comments from team Ninja, including some words from Hayashi recently, it sounds like the experience will be very similar to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions. The only major difference seems to be related to controls.
Said Team Ninja head Yosuke Hayashi:
“Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge is still Ninja Gaiden 3, but we plan to utilize the new controller for the Wii U to do new things. You may remember Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword for the Nintendo DS, we’re thinking implementing that kind of action and gameplay in an enhanced way for Wii U using the controller’s touch screen.”
