Dead or Alive has always been something of a fringe series in a genre dominated by two or three series (Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Soul Calibur etc) but it seems like Team Ninja have figured out a way to grab attention with their new fighter: they made it completely insane.
See what we mean? The music is loud, half the stage is on fire, there's tigers leaping everywhere, glitter, afros, and oh my god that guy just got shot out of a giant clown nose! This game is nuts, and so far we absolutely love it. We've got enough hyper-precise, technically sound fighting games (read: Virtua Fighter 5) to last a lifetime. Let's get nuts.
