Team Ninja says Wii U Hardware is "Changing Constantly"

The developer behind the Ninja Gaiden games, Team Ninja, has said that while the hardware for the Wii U is still being finalised, it's very easy to develop for.

"Nintendo asked us what we would want from the hardware. And when we gave them our feedback, we could see that they really listened and made changes," said head of the studio Yosuke Hayashi. "The hardware is currently changing constantly."

The information was revealed as part of an interview with Gamefront (translation of main points from GoNintendo) where both Hayashi and his partner in crime Fumihiko Yasuda said that due to development being very similar to how titles are put together for the Xbox 360 and PS3 that it's been very easy getting games ready for launch.

Both guys also felt that the controller was unique, with Yasuda saying: "The control via a touch screen is like the Nintendo DS, we worked on the NDS with Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword, and we would like to take some elements from it and install them in the U Wii version of Ninja Gaiden 3."

In regards to what games the company was focusing on for the launch of the Wii U, they said that the main focus for the next generation Nintendo console was Ninja Gaiden 3. When pressed about the possibility for a fifth Dead or Alive game they said they were keeping it in mind.
