Dead or Alive 3DS shows bouncy new screens, adds 'Dimensions' subtitle

It's very exciting to still be at the stage where it's unclear exactly how good the graphics will be on a new machine. If Dead Or Alive: Dimensions is anything to go by, 'freakin' amazing' is a good starting point. And that's before you take into account the magnificent 3D effect that will make Kasumi's assets even more 'outstanding' than usual. Check out the new screens, as seen on Famitsu:

Above: Kasumi smacks Ayane on the chin while sakura falls all around. Must look great in 3D

Above: Kasumi's hair flows like silk as she smashes her brother Hayate in the ear. Best-rendered leg ever?

Above: Ayane gets her own back - but look at the depth of field effect on that background. Yum

Above: The character models are easily Xbox 1 standard, and the background echoes the Dreamcast original

Above: Special effects are the order of the day. Shame we can't see the screen furniture too

Above: Now that's impressive. Imagine this happening in the palm of your hand. Bring on March!

Above: It wouldn't be a Dead or Alive game without a teasing glimpse of female undergarment. Pantsu!

Above: Why not combine the lot? Great character models, flashy lightning and pants. This game cannot fail

The game has cunningly taken on a 'Dimensions' sub-title to replace '3D'. We're preparing ourselves for a flood of clever puns and acronyms, like we had with DS versions of popular games. Resident Evil: Deadly Silence, anyone? Still, it's great to have a new DOA fighting game on the way. Beach Volleyball is all well and good, but even the girls would rather be fighting. 

So how good do you reckon it looks? These screens are a bit fuzzy, but I reckon it looks at least as good as the PS2 version of DOA2:

Above: In fact, this PS2 shot looks a bit sterile in comparison...

Roll on 3DS, whenever your release date may be...

    why people complaining about graphics as much i just cant wait for the 3D and if it will work rly well. nintendo oviusly totally trying to be the best graphical console or handheld they try to make it FUN or differnt than sony or microsoft like the wii was fun at 1st but changed to xbox 360 just becuase of the amount of bad/kiddy games. ive always loved ds more than psp i still got the origianl bulky one (i horribly regret putting a sticker on the front) specially cant wait to play something like resident evil a horror game in 3D to see if it will make me have a heart attack when a zombie pops out of the screen in 3D as long the 3D works well with the 3DS im defintly getting it

    Neither Tekken nor Metal Gear on the PSP look THIS good. Then again, the PSP's been out for a while. The next-gen PSP, however, will probably looks as good, if not better than this. Still, for a portable (and seeing as it'll be in 3D) the 3DS will be amazing in the graphics department.

    Sigh... Look at MGS: Rising. Now look at the Naked Sample. Look at RE4 on the PS2. Now look at the 3DS screenshots. There you go. It's more powerful than the PSP.

    cant wait for 3ds. add more outfits that doa4 and i will be playing it till doa5 (that will probably come out on the wii2 if nintendo keeps on track)
  • kit07 - September 9, 2010 7:44 p.m.

    DoA is my fav fighting franchise. there i said it
  • Felixthecat - September 9, 2010 6:28 p.m.

    @Fiirestorm LOL PSP. The PSP is a failure, it only has few good games, and unless you haven't noticed, it doesn't do 3D. Also, last game I played on the PSP looked like crap (can't remember what game, it was about 3 years ago). Anyway, YUSS! 3DS is going to be the most amazing handheld EVEEEER!
  • Corsair89 - September 9, 2010 3:13 p.m.

    Finally DoA is moving back to fighting. God, the 3DS is looks better and better every time I see it. Launch can't come quickly enough.

    @everybody who's saying the PSP does this: I own a PSP. I love it. It doesn't do this. This is phenomenal. I'm really looking forward to SSFIVDS now.
  • CH3BURASHKA - September 9, 2010 1:45 p.m.

    Do they mean to say their characters won't be two-dimensional?
  • Lionzest7 - September 9, 2010 1:34 p.m.

    Nice SS. can't wait for the 3DS maybe konami will remake peacewalker for a system that people actually care about
  • Hydrohs - September 9, 2010 1:32 p.m.

    That is pretty impressive. But it needs more AA.
  • SAUGAPRIME - September 9, 2010 1:08 p.m.

    I want a great fighting game to come out!!! When is DEAD or ALIVE 5 coming out for PS3??? Please TECMO set aside your differance's with Team NINJA and make fighting games come back on the market.
  • infernox - September 9, 2010 12:54 p.m.

    its a launch title and probably an alpha build. it can only get better then this.
  • FelNaRj - September 9, 2010 12:40 p.m.

    Arucard04 - 49 minutes 42 seconds ago I'll admit to that. The launch games look as good or better than some of PSP's best after 5 years. But still, not enough to act like "Oh my god, these the palm of your hand??!!! What wizardry!" @Arucard04: You gave yourself an answer rigth there, it´s been more than five years with the PSP, it´s obvious that the new 3ds it´s a more powerful piece of hardware , but i must say i was expecting a lot more.....btw it´s look better that Tekken 6 or Soul Calibur, but not that good... still a must buy for me
  • EnragedTortoise1 - September 9, 2010 12:21 p.m.

    Believeable, but still amazing. Can't wait to see how MGS and Resi look.
  • Arucard04 - September 9, 2010 11:45 a.m.

    you were obviously living under a rock during e3 then the 3ds is way more powerful then the psp
  • Arucard04 - September 9, 2010 11:30 a.m.

    According to the average gaming press, the PSP doesn't exist.
