Dead Or Alive Will Be More Respectful To Women From Now On

Dead or Alive has always been known for its "jiggliness," but it seems that might come to an end with Dead or Alive 5.

This policy reversal is championed by the new Team Ninja leader, Yosuke Hayashi.

"The old team was known for making games that just had two primary elements: Sex and violence," Hayashi admitted. "It was very obvious. The new team, we want to take it to a new level -- to a direction that contains emotional experiences that can move players."

"Rather than just having violence for the sake of violence and cheap thrill, we wanted to give meaning to violence: Why does this happen? We want to link emotion to violence." He added "we wanted to make a game that is for mature audiences, that can make adults think."

It is possible to have a strong story in games such Ninja Gaiden, but what about plot-less flesh parades such as Dead or Alive? "We've always had the sex factor in [Dead or Alive]; in the past, the female characters had to have big breasts, they had to have scanty dress," Hayashi conceded. "In DoA 5 especially, we're trying to focus on the real women that surround us; the voice of a female, the mannerisms. We are being realistic about it."

Not everybody just stares like an idiot

Not sure what to think about this,this whole so called sex stuff is BS,what sex?I've seen more of that in a tv commercial and the actual obvious cheap thrills game was that volleyball game

This whole jiggle less crap was never an issue for me as i take my fighting seriously

I happen to use Kasumi and when it was fight time I concentrated on winning,not staring at her ass...i think they underestimate their audience or perhaps he was thinking of japanese dudes when he made those comments...I don't know

There is nothing wrong with wanting more story though as long as they don't get too damn artsy and make it boring like those oscar winning movies

this is bad

this is bad, they now have make the shit out of our fav games. do not let them win. soon, ur fav games will be so shitty u think Dante from DMC is the same vampire from twilight. shit! u guys must show our protest, let us be heard, no more shitty game. give us back DOA that we love so much. download it, dont buy it, download. so they know we protest!

what a joke

What a joke, bouncy boobs and lack of clothing was the only thing keeping the game even in touch with bigger franchises, so if they are talking lesbians in bikini's I'm okay with that... right on feminisim etc... now get ya boobs out for the lads.

Inb4 crying fanboys

I personally don't care. I only buy Dead or Alive games because I enjoy them, not because of the bounciness of the breasts. I'm definitely buying DOA5 after seeing some footage of it, though.

Luckly there is still enough

Luckly there is still enough free porn on the internet to avoid me from buying any DoA games... can save my money for real games worth buying. It's not like they were good fighting games to begin with... all they had going for it were the almost naked women.

fu(k the new team ninja!! i

fu(k the new team ninja!! i wont buy, and i will ask my friend to not to buy either. i will download and burn and distribute it free to all people. they shouldn't try to say bad things about previous staff and DOA games in general. if they want respect, learn respect 1st.
