Team Ninja goes hands-on with breasts to create 'the cutest chicks in videogames'

  • Posted August 15th, 2012 at 18:39 EDT by PSU Staff

In an exclusive interview with PSU, Team Ninja producer Yosuke Hayashi said the development team went "hands-on" with partners and other members of the Japanese studio in order to get the breast physics right for its upcoming brawler Dead Or Alive 5. That’s right; the team put an awful lot of attention on that specific “feature” of the game.

In DOA5, female breasts jiggle and bounce realistically depending in what costume they're wearing. Responding to a question: "what would you say to those people who think that the bikini-clad babes in DOA5 are sexist," Hayashi said that all the team wanted to do was create "the cutest chicks in videogames," and he feels DOA5 achieves that.

DOA5 features an impressive looking roster of female characters, but Team Ninja insists that it's the gameplay that will take centre stage when the game launches in September. DOA5 will be going head-to-head against Tekken Tag Tournament 2, which is also due for release around the same time.

Team Ninja doesn't appear to be too worried though. "DOA5 is a fighting game for this generation," said Hayashi. "Our game engine is built from scratch.”

The DOA series makes its way to the PS3 for the first time in 12 years and launches on Sept. 25 in North America and Japan and Sept. 28 in Europe.
