Sometime during Dead or Alive 5’s development Team Ninja wanted to move away from having over-sexualized female characters, but anyone who has played the game so far will probably realize that that has become something of a moot point. What made them change their minds? Well according to Dead or Alive 5 director Yohei Shimbori, fan feedback.
In an interview with Gamasutra, Shimbori stated that Team Ninja received feedback from Western gamers saying they wanted to keep the “sexiness” turned up. To be a bit more specific he said that “We were getting feedback from the overseas offices to tone down the sexuality—to tone down the sexiness of the game, and of the characters. We actually got a lot of feedback from people who were playing it, saying, ‘We want bigger breasts. Make the characters more like that.’ That was kind of surprising.”
Honestly, if gamers want bigger breasts then let them have their cheesecake. Dead or Alive has always been a series that contains a lot of fan service and anyone picking up the game at this point should know what to expect… a tight fighting game with enjoyable combat and plenty of eye candy.
