Not exactly the press you want, a new article at Gamasutra features Team Ninja director Yohei Shimbori talking about how fans wanted female characters in Dead or Alive 5 to have bigger breasts. Shimbori told the publication that Team Ninja received word from its overseas offices that it needed to tone down the sexuality of the game's female characters but that decision was reversed when it received feedback from players who played the Dead or Alive 5 demo included with Ninja Gaiden 3.
"We actually got a lot of feedback from people who were playing it, saying, 'We want bigger breasts. Make the characters more like that.' That was kind of surprising," Shimbori said.
"There's definitely still room for having sexualized aspects," Shimbori concludes. "If you have a solid fighting game system there, there's nothing wrong with having beautiful characters as a layer on top of that–that's another layer of entertainment that there's a need for. If there wasn't a need for it, people wouldn't have responded to the alpha demo like they did, and send us feedback."
Dead or Alive 5 was released earlier this week. Oddly enough male characters did not receive bigger packages.
