"That was kind of surprising," says director Yohei Shimbori.
The 'Dead or Alive' franchise and developers Team Ninja are known for a few things, but the biggest is, well, large breasts. They're the guys that created Jiggle Physics in games after all. When former director Tomonobu Itagaki left the company, Team Ninja decided to tone down the sexuality of the newest 'Dead or Alive' game.
That didn't last too long though, as fans demanded that things be changed back. "We actually got a lot of feedback from people who were playing it, saying, 'We want bigger breasts," says director Yohei Shimbori. "That was kind of surprising."
So 'Dead or Alive 5' is back to being the sexualized, breasty, bouncy game that fans have come to expect.
