Siliconera:Team Ninja is one of the early third party Wii U developers and when we met with studio head Yosuke Hayashi we asked him we he thought about Nintendo’s new console.
The entire article they treated the game like a full third party game without mentioning that Nintendo published this additional content title.
Yet Hayashi himself goes to say that they are looking into the idea of bringing this content over. and dont forget... MS published NG2, and that came to the PS3 and is now coming to the PSV.
It's still about money, so unless Nintendo invested in this version I expect these new additions to somehow make it over to the other systems. What people often neglect is the technical abilities on the Wii U and how it compares to the other consoles, and that is the GamePad. Some games struggle in splitscreen on existing consoles because it has to do more processing. I imagine the GamePad also uses more processing power in order to do two separate functions at once.
Nintendo is publishing this version, so yes they invested money into it. Just because the developer says they are "looking into ways" doesn't mean it is going to happen. I'm sure the folks over at Bethesda are looking at DLC for Skyrim on the PS3, but guess what, it doesn't look good their either.
Honestly, I believe the developer is saying this so as to not come across as biased. It's not like he can say "Sorry MS and Sony fans that we gave you a crappy version, but you're stuck with that until NG4 comes out."
Ninja Gaiden II ended up being on the PS3 even though it too was published by Microsoft. It just used a different name, Ninja Gaiden Sigma II. Ninja Gaiden 3 was already available on the PS3 and Xbox 360, not sure what's stopping them from adding new content and an update.
Team Ninja can GTFOH!
They ruined Ninja Gaiden, they cant be forgiven for that.
Bring back Tomonobu Itagaki, Fire the damn fools that fired him.
Then, Fire the Idiot that came up with the QTE's, then Fire the A** that allowed that POS Ninja Gaiden 3 to go to print!
Then Fire himself for saying in this article "he didn't want to disappoint NG fans"?????WHAT!!!TOOO LATE!
I soo AGREE!!! Word to you motha! Bring Itagaki back or better yet, somebody please fund Devils Third and make sure it is released. MG Rising in the meanwhile.
They are only removing the QTE's which is great but the game will still be missing on tons of stuff like: dismembering obligeration techniques no advance UT by absorbing orbs only 1 ninpo poor selection of weapons no store no items no lvl up system for the weapons And all of this will be on the Wii U version plus Ayane and the other girls from prior games will be playable too.
Dismemberment is back on razors edge. And the game brings back most, if not all weapons from NG2. Check your facts pal.
Ignore the prior post, I didnt check the last line, and I thought you were reffering to razors edge. My bad. Now I agree with you 100% :)
Everything you just mentioned they're bringing back or fixing with Razor's Edge.
they transformed one of the best hack n slash titles to shit sigh
Sadly it's not going to make the game that much better.
Did he say directly that NG3:RE is coming over to the PS360? No. It was a bullshit PR response you hear all the time that dances around the question with directly saying whether it'll be ported or not so he doesn't piss off any fans. Doesn't help too that Nintendo helped with this game and is publishing it. Yes I know Microsoft published Ninja Gaiden 2, but Microsoft themselves said they don't care about exclusives, Nintendo however does and won't let an exclusive go that easily. And what's great too is now that people "assume" they'll bring NG3RE over to PS360 now, no one will buy the game on Wii U, it'll sell terribly, and then they won't port it at all.
How does Tecmo do it? Other companies make it sound like is impossible. Just reading the article. This is a huge update we are talking about. i don't mind a rerelease
misleading title " We can’t say for sure how it will be coming to the other consoles, but we are thinking of ways to be able to make Ninja Gaiden fans on all consoles happy," This simply means that they will probably provide some more DLC for other consoles as well. No big updates whatsoever. They rather let you buy a new release for Ps3/360 than to give anyone a big patch.
Yep, my vita will have all 3 ninja gaidens eventually.. I dont mind waiting on this one cuz it still needs more work from what the reviews say..
