DOA4 lobby system revealed

Chat, watch fights, swim!

New details of the lobby system featured in Dead or Alive 4 for Xbox 360 have been revealed in the latest issue of Famitsu - and by the sounds of things, it's going to be pretty wacky.

The lobby features ten different areas, including one with a Halloween theme, and a swamp room which you swim around instead of walking.

There will be around 30 avatars to choose from, but rather than DOA fighters these take the form of cute characters including a ninja, ghost, skeleton, fairy, cat, fish, alligator, penguin, butterfly and chicken.

Each lobby can hold a maximum of 20 people, and as well as chatting to your fellow lobbyists you can watch fights currently taking place on a wide screen display.

There are no screenshots yet, sadly, but at least you can check out the ones of the game proper if you haven't already. Dead or Alive 4 is due out by Christmas.
