DOA: Paradise revealed for PSP

Bikini hijinks due early next year.

Tecmo Koei reckons melons are what you PSP owners want, so Dead or Alive: Paradise is what you'll get.

Out early next year, the handheld game recreates beach volleyball with female Dead or Alive characters clad skimpily in bikinis and tight tops.

There are new islands and "naughty" modes to explore, the publisher told Eurogamer, plus the addition of DOA's casino dealer Rio to the roster.

The marketing line for the game? I'm glad I/you asked: "Paradise in the palm of your hand."

Head over to our Dead or Alive: Paradise gallery for the first screenshots.

Or take a trip down mammary lane with our Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball (Xbox) and Dead or Alive Xtreme 2 (Xbox 360) reviews; the series is as shameless as our puns.
