First ever Dead or Alive 4 shots

The first shots of Dead or Alive 4 for Xbox 360 have just leaked out - and the series' trademark lush visuals are looking better than ever.

The Team Ninja-developed fighter is one of a number of games that the company is currently working on and, intriguingly, Ninja boss Tomonubo Itagaki recently said, "At the very least, we think we can release another two games for Xbox."

That said, Itagaki has revealed that next-gen development is taking up 90% of Team Ninja's time, with Itagaki personally spending "99% of his time" on Dead or Alive 4.

A release date for the Xbox 360 version of Dead or Alive 4 has yet to be announced
