A fifth Dead or Alive
is in development -- no surprise. That DOA
creator, on-the-job drinker
, and overly-friendly coworker
Tomonobu Itagaki made the announcement at the DOA
10th anniversary party among a throng of supporters made us giddy. After all, after the sexual harassment charges we weren't sure whether he had been demoted or somehow shuffled in the background. But there he was, wine glass and sunglasses in tow.
Not much was revealed, except that Itagaki has a few ideas circling in his head, he's planning on axing
the Tag Team system, and he already knows
how the opening cinematic will begin. No console was mentioned, but we're placing our bets on another Xbox 360 iteration. After five of the most recent DOA
titles (including two softcore simulators
) have been Microsoft exclusives, we think the odds are in our favor.
