Pretty much what you’d expect, really.
Announced this weekend during the 2016 Dead or Alive Festival in Japan, The King of Fighters’ Mai Shiranui will be joining the roster of Dead or Alive 5: Last Round for the PlayStation 4 in September. Nippon ichi!
Koei Tecmo has teamed up with one of my favorite Japanese RPG developers to create a set of Dead or Alive 5: Last Round costumes based on the delightful costume designs from the Atelier series and other Gust games. I’d almost pay $32 for them. Almost.
Of course it is.
Gamers have spent the past several months arguing over whether Dead or Alive’s third bikini-clad vacation simulator deserves a Western release. That’s a lot of time and energy wasted on the worst game in the series.
It’s been nearly two weeks since a single Facebook comment on the official Dead or Alive page sent people into a tizzy over whether Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 wasn’t coming to the West because of “issues happening in video game industry with regard to how to treat female[s].” Now, publisher Koei Tecmo has responded.
It never seemed clear that Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, a brand-new entry in the sexy fantasy spin-off series, would leave Japan. But when publisher Koei Tecmo made one poorly translated comment on Facebook about why it wasn’t happening, the Internet exploded into another heated debate over censorship.

Acknowledging that the Dead or Alive fighting franchise has a sexy image problem, community leaders at the series' go-to forum have added an over-sexualized costume soft-ban to their tournament rules. Reactions from the community-at-large have been overwhelmingly negative.
Breasts swing. They sag. They flop. They can move. Over the years, many games have tried to emulate the way breasts behave. There's even a term for it: "Breast physics."
The official Twitter account for Team Ninja, developers of the recently released Dead or Alive 5: Last Round, is a complete trainwreck right now. In a variety of languages, nearly every tweet is warning players of some bug or glitch currently plaguing the fighting game. Where do we begin?
I fell in love with my favorite fighting game franchise for all the right reasons. It was fast, frantic, flashy and groundbreaking. Now, after nearly 20 years together, it's time for me to face the truth—my favorite fighting game franchise is an exhibitionist, and I'm not okay with it.
If you're playing Dead or Alive 5: Last Round on Xbox One and have been experiencing a steady stream of crashes, you're not alone. Many players are reporting the game's having issues, but some have apparently discovered a temporary fix, while Tecmo Koei works on an official patch.
It used to be so easy to buy video games. But just try wrapping your head around how Tecmo explains the various ways to buy the upcoming Dead or Alive 5 Last Round: Core Fighters:
For their upcoming fighting game, Dead or Alive 5: Last Round, the developers at Tecmo Koei have created a new engine to bring their characters to life.
Other than being made by the same company, survival horror series Fatal Frame and fighting game series Dead or Alive have had little in common—until now that is.
