Having missed the US and European launches of Xbox 360, Dead or Alive 4 will now apparently also miss out on the Japanese - but only by one week.
Following a visit to Tecmo's Team Ninja studio last week, IGN reports that the game is considered 95 per cent complete and should be out in Japan a week after the 360's December 10th launch date.
That means that the Japanese 360 launch line-up now consists of Ridge Racer 6, Every Party, Perfect Dark Zero, FIFA 06, Tetris Grandmaster and Need for Speed Most Wanted. FromSoft RPG Enchant Arm recently slipped to early next year.
DOA4 is due out in Europe in mid January.
