Since the departure of Tomonobu Itagaki back in 2008, Team Ninja has attempted to shake its reputation as nothing but a stylish, sex-crazed gore factory. It attempted to give Ninja Gaiden’s Ryu Hayabusa a softer side, for one. Only two months ago, Team Ninja head Yosuke Hayashi said Dead or Alive 5 will rise beyond “sex and violence,” instead pursing “a direction that contains emotional experiences that can move players.”
Now, in an interview with Famitsu, Hayashi has now revealed that Dead or Alive 5‘s voluptuous vixens will feature costume-specific breast physics. Furthermore, each costume will have varying levels of transparency. It sounds like a contradiction to Hayashi’s previous statements … that is, of course, until you realize that “move” is a very ambiguous term.
