Ready for action

Dead or Alive: Dimensions is just ten days away from Europe and two weeks from North America, so publisher Tecmo Koei has released a lengthy video to explain the game's features.

The Japanese video shows off the game's training mode as well as the new Chronicles mode, where players battle through a story based on the four previous Dead or Alive games, combining fighting, story and training in one.

There's also footage from the new figurine posing mode that uses the gyroscope to turn the 3DS into a virtual camera of sorts, with 1,000 figures to collect and combine to create 'exciting dioramas'. Yes, you know what that means.
