Wii U hardware "changing constantly"claims Team Ninja Wii-u-console-front

The Wii U hardware is currently changing "constantly," Ninja Gaiden 3 developer, Team Ninja has claimed.

Speaking in an interview with Nintendo Gamer, Team Ninja's Fumihiko Yasuda and Yosuke Hayashi broke the industry-wide silence on Nintendo's next-gen console, claiming its "very easy to develop for... We're finding it very similar to develop for Wii U as for Xbox 360 and PS3."

"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," said Hayashi. "The hardware is still constantly changing."
Yasuda added: "The Wii U's touch control is like the Nintendo DS's. 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]."

Team Ninja's comments of course back up those of Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono, who claimed earlier this month that the Wii U hardware has 'advanced since E3'.

He said: "What we saw last E3 is not a reflection of everything this console is able to offer. We have been trying the development kits and some of its new characteristics will improve its possibilities. It isn't something like Kinect or similar accessories, it's something different."

Recent reports claimed the Wii U hardware is twice as powerful as the Xbox 360.

One new feature already revealed for the console is NFC technology, which allows users to read and write data wirelessly, in a similar way to how Activision's Skylanders action figures interact with the 'Portal of Power' reading device.


Well hopfully we can see the finished thing at E3 this year. I wanna see what it can do.

Your Thoughts?

I still find it hard to get too excited about things without many concrete details, but I am looking forward to E3 nonetheless. The whole DS-like gameplay isn't too intriguing since we've been doing that for over seven years now, but the other features and hardware should propel the concept to a new level. I like that we probably won't need to many add-ons, since the WiiU tablet controller is fully-featured.

Indeed. Well we might need a mic
Supposedly there's even a microphone built into the controller. These things won't be cheap to replace... Razz
