Team Ninja boss Tomonobu Itagaki has been leaking words again, talking about everything from the misunderstood Dead or Alive Xtreme 2 to how much he likes Wii.
I think I may have just played the most pointless and gratuitous game in the history of mankind. I say mankind, because, like, only men could make a game where the sole point of it is stooping to pitiful and pathetic levels of digital voyeurism.
Actually, that's unfair. The main point of the game is essentially to buy up a collection of random tat by winning at various activities around the island - that have basically been constructed around their abilities to tease and titillate the lonely and sexually frustrated males out there who are too young to buy real porn. It's an alarming waste of Team Ninja's undoubted talents.
The game kicks off with some throwaway cut-scene nonsense to justify the whole malarkey, and it doesn't get any more convincing. Basically, the superfly Zack manages - via extraterrestrial means - to exhume the sunken tropical island that was the setting for the original, and so begins another two-week vacation for the well-toned girls of the Dead or Alive series.
There's so much pre-rendered content in Dead Or Alive X2 that it's filled up an entire DVD, according to Team Ninja's Tomonobu Itagaki.
Speaking in Famitsu Xbox 360, in an article partially translated by IGN, Itagaki also said that the game was now 80 percent complete, with start and end sequences finalised.
The preview also revealed for the first time that the game will feature multiple hotels, with your choice of character sending you to a particular location based on their personality. Elena, for example, prefers the five-star Gemstone Suite, but there's also the Seabreeze Cottage hotel near the beach and Moonlight Reef, which appeared in Kasumi's Dead Or Alive 4 end sequence.
Team Ninja's vocal boss-man Tomonobu Itagaki has treated the Japanese Famitsu Xbox 360 magazine to a progress update on Dead or Alive Xtreme 2.
In an article partly translated by IGN, Itagaki said the game was about 60 percent complete, with the team currently tying the main Vacation Mode together and adding trick mechanics to the jet-ski sections.
Along with beach volleyball, jet-skiing will form the backbone of DOAX2. Players will begin with a jet-ski and the option to go racing. There'll be five different types of ski, says Itagaki, with specific handling configurations that will determine their relative performance - your choice of DOA girl won't actually affect that.
Microsoft's swung a Dead or Alive Xtreme 2 trailer onto Marketplace.
Team Ninja's Tomonobu Itagaki says he's working very hard on the jet-ski parts of Dead or Alive X2, but other details like the story have yet to be nailed down. The tits are all in place though, obviously.
Tecmo has revealed more details of the sequel to Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball.
This one's simply titled DOA: Xtreme 2, since it won't just be volleyball you're playing - there are all sorts of beach-related activities to choose from.
Why not enter a few Personal Water Craft races, for example, or grab a rubber ring and head on over to the Water Slider. Or you could hit the pool for aquatic tug of war, or the Hopping Game, where you must travel from one side to the other by jumping across floating platforms.
Team Ninja boss Tomonobu Itagaki has revealed that the sequel to Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball will feature a cameraman mode.
Miramax has secured the rights to distribute the new Dead or Alive film and will be bringing the movie to US cinemas next autumn, according to Variety.
Tecmo is working on a sequel to Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball, according to Team Ninja lead Tomonobu Itagaki, which will include several sports besides volleyball and retain its focus on "customisation and collection". Apparently that was the focus last time, too.
