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.
