E3 06: Dead or Alive: Xtreme 2 video

Like it or loathe it, Dead or Alive: Xtreme 2 is headed to Xbox 360, and Tecmo's unabashedly sexy trailer hints at several of the new mini-games that take the series beyond just its beach volleyball origins.

New elements include a water slide game, a tug of war on floating pool platforms and the back-to-back Hip Wrestling game, where your only goal is to grind your opponent off balance and send them off the platform with a splash. Volleyball, hopping and casino games will return as well, since no visit to Zack's Island would be complete without them.

But who are we kidding? The eye candy is the point here and there's plenty of it. Tecmo is proud that the infamous breast physics have evolved to the point where each one moves independently. Watch the video yourself and see - click on that Movies tab above.
