Tecmo Finally Masters the Single Entendre with Dead or Alive: Dimensions

Posted by James Newton

3DS fighter gets named

Tecmo's Dead or Alive series has walked a fine line between serious and absurd ever since its first home conversion offered the option to boost the bounce of its female fighters. Plenty of conversation (amongst other things) arose after the game's unveiling at E3 for 3DS, under the then-uninspiring title of Dead or Alive 3D. Now the game has an official title that suits the series to a tee: Dead or Alive: Dimensions.

Get it? Because the game's in three dimensions, and the girls' dimensions are the source of much discussion and interest in the game! Superb naming work from Tecmo and Team Ninja there.

Regrettably there's little else to go on about the title as yet, but we'll have updates for you as we receive them.

What else do you need to know? It's Dead or Alive. It has ninjas and boobs. That's about it.



Sylverstone said:

Nice. More info is slowly coming in.

Ninjas and boobs go hand-in-hand. I'm still surprised if that motion boob jiggle was actually implemented.



LordJumpMad said:

The DOA games are an ok Fighting Game, but it going to take more then Boobies to get me to buy this.

I wonder if there going to add Samus to this, since the X-box 360 got Master Chef in theres.

James, your the Funniest writer here!

@Sakeraf: a-ha! Didn't even catch that the first time. Entendres all around, then! Well done James.
Also: Just bought the issue of EDGE magazine with 3DS on the cover. It's pricey in the states, but damn, it looked too snazzy to pass up. September 29th, where are you....

@irken004 As Bill Clinton once said: I let the boobies decide... I don't really know if he ever said that, but hey, I'm running with it. DOA FTW! <3 Hope they will have the same... Umm, physics as in Island Xtreme.

I bet that inclusion would cook up a storm.

Oh and by the way, the spartan in DoA was infact Nicole-458, not John-117. 8B



ArmoredGoomba said:

I'm not sure nintendo would allow zero suit samus in a dead or alive game with its...advanced physics. Varia suit would be cool to see though.



wanderlustwarrior said:

Hey, even us Dinobot fans didn't expect he'd win. Please tell me you aren't one of those Beast Wars haters though. If not for Beast Wars, there wouldn't even be a Botcon. Plus, Dinobot is a more complete character.

But, that's enough of a derail. More on the subject of DoA:

After what those ******* at Tecmo and Team Ninja did to Samus Aran in Metroid Other M, I'm not giving these guys the time of day. DDD-cup ninjas in 3D or not. You tried to ruin my favorite video game character and I'll NEVER forgive you for that! Don't you EVER mess with my characters ever again!



James said:

Hey MasterGraveHeart, wanted you to be the first to know Team Ninja is developing a Shantae sequel!



ArmoredGoomba said:

@ MasterGraveheart But Metroid Other M is one of the best metroids ever! And considering Sakamoto wrote the story and script. Don't be mad at Team Ninja.



MasterGraveheart said:

@James_Newton: Oh, you are just a bad human being. =P

@ArmoredGoomba: Well, then please direct my anger towards Mr. Sakamoto. Team Ninja, fine job on the gameplay.

...I really hate the Samus depiction in that game. It really was one of the best Metroids... but Samus bending over backwards for Adam just really ticked me off...

Ah well. At least I can buy Virtual Boobies in good concience now. lol



Phobos said:

I hope someone slices the D-cups of them ninjas. That'll teach all you boys.



NassaDane said:

am i the only one who only thinks of the big Burrly Russian guys when they think of this game?



WaveGhoul said:

I hate Dead Or Alive, but I'll definitly give it a rental to check out the 3D boobies.
Super Smash Bros and Street Fighter are the only real fighting franchises that I love. I can't stand Tekken, Virtua Fighter and DOA anymore, and even Soul Calibur.



SavageBlackWolf said:

Nipple pokes to the eyes. ( o ) ( o ) , (In 3D!) I`ve seen it all now.LoL

(Those where supposed to be eyes! It can be taken either way, i guess).



citizenerased said:

I've pondered about an even better title and came up with:

Dead Or Alive: Super Triple D Battle Cup Extreme

(in Japan it would obviously have a longer subtitle)



SilverBaretta said:

Single entendres? Pshaw. Everyone knows the double is where it's at! But anyway, good title, should be a great game.



DjinnFighter said:

Personally, the DOA games are the best fighting games I played (besides Smash). People tend to believe these games are just about boobs. Yes and no lol... but the fights are awesome. DOA4 is easily my favorite Xbox 360 game.

It's awesome to see that the 3DS will receive a real DOA game while PSP received DOA Paradise.



siavm said:

There are dudes in DOA? Oh yeah the fighters do have guys in it. After playing volleyball so long you forget.



IronMan28 said:

Samus on DoA would be awesome.
(I realize it did not say anything about that in the article, but there are people mentioning it and I think it bears repeating).

Can't wait to play this. We're finally getting really good fighting games on a Nintendo portable in America.
Also, Hooray for ta-tas!
