DEAD OR ALIVE Dimensions retells the saga of the franchise in a never before seen way, as you discover the secrets behind the ongoing power struggle within the Mugen Tenshin ninja clan and the carefully guarded “Torn Sky Blast” fighting technique. The evil DOATEC company, host of the DEAD OR ALIVE tournaments, tries to uncover the secrets for perfecting the creation of a “super fighter”. DEAD OR ALIVE Dimensions will see the return of an array of female characters, renowned for their beauty and classic to the DEAD OR ALIVE series, such as Kasumi, Leifang and Tina Armstrong, along with more recent characters such as Kokoro, Eliot and Hitomi, which are sure to appeal to fans old and new.
In another first, every character in the DEAD OR ALIVE series is available in one game. Through the CHRONICLE mode players will follow certain characters’ journeys to unravel the truth behind each of their stories. With the first four chapters representing the first four DEAD OR ALIVE games, the fifth chapter acts as an epilogue to the epic saga. Using the Touch Screen, players will be able to learn how each of the characters relates to one another and unravel the story behind DEAD OR ALIVE Dimensions. Also new to DEAD OR ALIVE Dimensions is the ability to use unique features of Nintendo 3DS in order to add new depths to the gameplay. In THROWDOWN mode players get to fight against the character of another player encountered via StreetPass for a chance to add character figurines to their arsenal. This virtual opponent is an AI created by the game, based on the battle records of the player.
With the SHOWCASE mode players will be able to marvel at the full range of 3D figurines that can be unlocked whilst completing the game and position them in one of seventeen backgrounds to take pictures.
