    Publisher: Tecmo Koei | Developer: Team Ninja

    Genre: Fighting | Platform: 3DS

    Summary: Surprisingly, this is the first time Team Ninja’s scrapper will appear on a Nintendo platform and man alive, has it got some serious competition in the form of Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition. Dead Or Alive: Dimensions should bring all of the series’ trademarks to 3DS, and that means fighting that’s faster than the norm, a focus on keeping your opponent in the air while you beat seven bells out of them with combos and, yes, female fighters with unfeasibly large and very bouncy breasts. It’s somewhat unfortunate that Dead Or Alive will forever be associated with Kasumi and her fellow preposterously proportioned pugilists as the fighting itself has, by and large, been consistently top quality during the game’s 15 year history. However, rumours abound that you’ll be able to use the 3DS tilt function to add extra jiggle, so the stigma isn’t going to go away any time soon. Sigh. Dead Or Alive: Dimensions is slated for a 2011 release on 3DS. We suggest it avoids hitting the shops anywhere near the time that SFIV: 3D Edition does.

  • 12% Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage »

    Developer: Omega Force

    Genre: Fighting | Platforms: PS3, XBox 360

    Summary: This brawler from Omega Force, the boys and girls behind the Dynasty Warriors series, draws on the classic manga series, Fist Of The North Star, and puts you in the boots of not just series hero Kenshiro (or Ken to his mates) but also four of his mates (or Ken’s mates to their mates… oh lord, that’s confusing now). ANYWAY. Yes, this is a reasonable, linear beat ‘em up with wave upon wave of enemies to pound and levels punctuated by grueling boss fights. Fans of Fist Of The North Star will no doubt like Ken's Rage. The rest of us... well, not so much.
