Dead or Alive gets even sexier on 3DS with Metroid stage starring a grotesque purple dragon

Dead or Alive has always had us covered on the ‘piledrivers’, ‘silicone implants’ and ‘kicking folk through plate glass windows’ front. But you know what the series has always been missing? Fire-breathing space monstrosities and intergalactic bounty hunters who can compress themselves down into tiny metal balls. Thankfully, the upcoming Dead or Alive: Dimensions on 3DS looks set to rectify this omission with a special Metroid-themed level to get your bikini pummelling on.



While our inner Metroid fanboys are in fits of delight over the video above, we can’t help but think this is just a cheap way to compensate for DoA being a bit… well, rubbish. As much as we love seeing Ridley incinerate buxom Japanese schoolgirls, we’d rather see the series try to get away from its button masher status. Ah well, at least it gave us an excuse to do this…

Oh, and apparently the game still has dudes...


Above: Who knew?

Dead or Alive: Dimensions will launch with Nintendo's new handheld on March 25 in Europe and the US on March 27. Below is an informative video on all things 3DS for your eyes to consume.

    well this just adds more icing on the launch day cake that is the 3ds and me getting DOA Dimensions and i like the older games in the series glad to see it returning to action like DK has recently

    : looks at DOAX Ridely.... I feel ill. As for the level: if all that level interaction is real, I will be a very happy gamer. Now I have to decided if Im going to be as dumb as I was with the DSL and buy it day one or not.

    That is so AWESOME! Is it me, or Ryu's and Kasumi's voice actors are different?

    > If Samus does appear as a fighter in the game, and if she is in her Zero Suit or a bikini (as some have said in the comments), I would think that would compound the complaints fans had with Metroid: Other M's characterization of Samus. Weren't most of the criticisms about her sexuality being exploited more in Other M? I agreed with Brett's evaluation of Samus' whining. and I really didn't like Team Ninja adding high heels to the Zero Suit. Their misogynist views at their fineness. I want old, badass Samus back. I am a bit ashamed at how much Sakamoto/Nintendo seem willing to exploit the sexuality of their franchise.

    Yeah I just realized that it wasn't MC. But can't really be surprised, with just a blank slate and the same armor it can be easy to mistake any spartan for him.

    @Defguru Most of the complaints I saw were that they turned Samus into an over emotional mess when in every other Metroid game, she's calm, collected and tough. There were criticisms of her Zero suit, though, which I didn't get. It may be tight, but it isn't exactly revealing or anything.
  • Defguru7777 - January 20, 2011 5:24 p.m.

    @HumorTumor TECHNICALLY, that's not correct. The Master Chief wasn't in Dead or Alive 4, it was a different Spartan named Nicole-458. @RonnyLive19881 GamesRadar did post an article saying to hold off on believing the "eye-sick" rumors until they got a hold of it. Just saying. If Samus does appear as a fighter in the game, and if she is in her Zero Suit or a bikini (as some have said in the comments), I would think that would compound the complaints fans had with Metroid: Other M's characterization of Samus. Weren't most of the criticisms about her sexuality being exploited more in Other M?

    *sigh* Y'all be lucky. Those of us who DO notice the dudes never get fan service games. At least we'll still have BlazBlue/Bang Shishigami.
  • MoChilla - January 20, 2011 4:50 p.m.

    Team Ninja's plan to finally put Samus in a Bikini has come to fruition.
  • FalconMbuster - January 20, 2011 3:30 p.m.

    I didn't think there were actual DoA fans. Learn somethin' new every day.
  • Japanaman - January 20, 2011 3:15 p.m.

    Metroid stage? Well, that sold me the game right there. Say, since DOA4 had a female Spartan, how about Samus being a playable character? I'd love to see Samus in mulitiple costumes. Armor, Minimum Armor, Zero suit, Spandex, and Bikini.
  • RonnyLive19881 - January 20, 2011 2:55 p.m.

    DOA is only bested by Smash Bros and the VS Capcom games in the fighting world... WTH GR do you guys just love to put negative crap in your in most of your Nintendo articles? *Kids go blind from looking at 3DS*(where is there a blind kid/Proof? Why hasn't there been news stories of Nintendo getting sued by a pissed of Mom?) Did we really need that article(At least the one with 3DS making Asians sick had proof to it)? Yall are starting to remind me of Fox news and (sadly) IGN these days. /rant
  • HumorTumor - January 20, 2011 2:12 p.m.

    So does this mean Samus is unlockable? That would be pretty cool better than the boring shell that is master chief in DOA4
  • codystovall - January 20, 2011 2:07 p.m.

    Doa is not rubbish street fighter and mortal kombat are rubbish.
  • rabidpotatochip - January 20, 2011 1:33 p.m.

    DoA STILL has dudes? Huh... I never noticed it had them before this game.

    Interest in game rising
