Hey guys I recently have been really into Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge on Wii U. Honestly for a last-gen game that received a slight upgrade (graphically speaking, I know it added dismemberment among other good things ;) it looks great on the Wii U. Especially Ryu, man the detail on him is quite good.
But anyway I've just been looking into other Hack N' Slash games, but it seems that it isn't as established of a genre compared to others. I think the reason for this is that some people think of Hack N' Slash as a negative term for games. To me personally, a 'button masher' is negative, such as "press X to win" or things of that sort. But game series like Dynasty Warriors, the modern Ninja Gaiden, Bayonetta etc. aren't "press X to win", there is definitely strategy involved, though there is a lot of quick movements involving Hacking and Slashing.
That said I ask the people of Gamespot what your favorite Hack N' Slash games are, specifically on Nintendo consoles. It doesn't matter what system it is on I would just like to know any recommendations you have for games I should look into. Also if you know of any games coming to Wii U in the future that may have Hack N' Slash qualities I would love to hear em' even rumors. Such as Devil's Third info :)
