Why only play Dead or Alive when you can smell it? Tecmo Koei is working hard to make that happen.
Vanessa Arteaga had been playing fighting games since she was a child, long before she became one of the highest-paid women in competitive gaming history—but her tens of thousands in winnings still pale in comparison to the millions that her male peers have made in competitive gaming in the years since.
Arc System Works is collaborating with Dead or Alive 5 Last Round for “collaboration costumes” from BlazBlue: Central Fiction, Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2, and Guilty Gear Xrd Sign. The DLC is slated for a March release in Japan. No word yet about an international release, but perhaps simultaneous.
Meet “VR Sense.” This is a Koei Tecmo’s dedicated VR arcade cabinet. It won’t only have VR headsets, but is equipped to respond to all five senses, including smell and touch.
In DOAX3's recently released VR mode, it appears that if you stick your head underwater while looking at a character, here Marie Rose, her bathing suit vanishes.
After months of build up, the release day for Dead or Alive Xtreme 3's PlayStation VR content has finally come.
After tossing together several successful all-star Dynasty Warriors-type games based on other people’s properties like Dragon Quest Heroes and Hyrule Warriors, Tecmo Koei gives its own famous characters a shot a killing many things at the same time in Musuo Stars.
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.
Because, of course it will. Though, don’t hold your breath just yet for a Western release.
Surprise! The thing absolutely nobody was expecting happened: some Dead or Alive players on PC have modded the latest game so they can play with naked characters. NSFW content ahead.
While it's nice of Team Ninja to bring Dead or Alive to the PC today with Dead or Alive 5: Last Round, you should be aware that it's shipping without some key components.
