Not trying to get into a debate, but I will just point that you *can* really put a vastly different kind of UI and controls on a same engine. You just need to look at the Unreal Engine 3 for instance which has been used for pretty much any kind of gameplay imaginable with vastly different gameplays and UIs.

That's not to say they wouldn't recycle the DSIII UI if they felt it appropriate, but if they aim for a different kind of game, they'd probably go with a different UI (the Alien RPG UI was nothing like it, and it was the same engine)

So I wouldn't worry about it really.
