    In an interview with Gamespot, Dead or Alive 6 Director Yohei Shimbori revealed why the game’s female characters won’t be oversexed: "The boobs are smaller as opposed to before because we wanted the girls to appear more human. We don't want to reshape them smaller or larger just on a whim.” Old-school fans, including well-endowed women, are calling this a clear case of body shaming.

    Kasumi's outfit has also undergone considerable changes. She's abandoned her loose-fitting kunoichi for an armored bodysuit. Though not as noticeable a transformation, Helena is also rocking a new, more combat-ready outfit. "They'll be back," Shimbori said, when asked if the fighters' original outfits would make a reappearance in the game. He and his team want to make strides towards removing sexual fanservice from Dead or Alive.

    Never played any of them...never will
    But making breasts smaller for any reason is a terrible hate crime
    :D

    And this is how you destroy your fan base. Cater to the people that weren't going to buy your game in the first place.

    I'm so fucking sick and tired of this inclusion/PC/can't upset anyone bullshit we're into.

    Seriously, who is getting upset by big bouncy titties?

    Boobs too big? Get attacked for over-sexing players and making women objects.

    Boobs too small = Body shaming?

    Just goes to show that game studios just can't win this one. The gamergate turds are hellbent on being unreasonable and criticizing no matter what.

    That said, I'm all for making the appearance of game characters as realistic as possible.

    Unfortunately, I think this is all fighting games now days. It's sad. I bought Street Fighter V and Tekken 7 mainly because I want to support those titles on PC, but I believe that putting characters behind DLC is bad considering that's an integral part of a fighting game. Tekken 7 has some character DLC but SF5 has $60 worth of character season passes, I should try to refund it on the grounds of being sold an incomplete game, but I'm already past the 2-hour limit.

    There is an amount of character DLC I can stand. Like 7 extra characters or something. But DOA was like every fucking character. I think it cost like 2k in DLC total at launch.

    Yeah, attacked by people who only attack it to having something to bitch about.

    I'm convinced those that complain only do so to stroke their ego. "Look what I DID!"...these snowflake bitches don't care about a fighting game in the first place.

    Just because it's been a staple of the series since its inception. I mean, sure, if you want to see some tits go look at porn but what you said could be said of anything. Should we limit big bouncy titties to JUST porn now or something?

    Beat me to it. DOA was never the best fighting game..you bought it because fuck it, big bouncy titties. I'm going to laugh when this thing fails miserably because they decided to give a big sjw middle finger to their primary demographic. I'll bet money that the males in the game are still EXACTLY the same as in previous iterations..Heavily oversexed perfectly chiseled unrealistic bodies as well.

    We can't have that because it'll cock shame the trannies that aren't very well endowed.

    Infant girls get breastfed just like infant boys do. Ergo, everyone like boobs, and big boobs means you won't starve. We should just accept our biological imperative, just like we don't shame faces that are too symmetrical, implying biological good health.

    I could be wrong, but I don't think the size of the boobs correlates to the womans ability to produce milk. Breast tissue is mostly fat.

    Marketing department: Hmm, sales are down. I wonder what happened...
    I've never bought any of these and never will. I don't care. Still, I always thought the attraction was the physics engine? What do I know.

    This is Japan, when has there been any woman with small boobs in their media? They're doing it to appeal to the SJW American audience.

    I am a huge fan of DOA. The breast thing is not a game killer for me. The Killer issue for me is the end of Tag Team Battle so no more Tag Team Throws. That is what I loved DOA for I loved 4 people playing the game and the amazing tag team throws that could be achieved with the characters. The lack of this feature may make me stick with DOA 5....

    This made me laugh....... people don't play video games for realism.... and most people play DOA because all the females are built like porn stars... its a T&A fetish smorgasbord. Arguments or explanations to the contrary are weak-ass bullshit in the face of DOA Vollyball... :)

    To be honest she kinda looks like one. I'm all for boobs, but not when they outweigh the rest of the woman.

    In my career half the women I have worked with have been built like porn stars. The other half were...huge in ever aspect including their boobs. The small boobed populace is very small in my experience.

    She is...extreme.

    LOL This.

    More like just "T". These game developers really should start making the asses in the games bigger. It looks even more ridiculous when a woman with E-cup breasts is doing expert ninja/capoeira (sp)/whatever moves with legs that look like sticks and no ass. They should be built closer to Serena Williams than Hitomi Tanaka, but maybe that's the ideal Japanese fetish doll look...

    EDIT: This reminds me of how people always joke at/criticize/meme Chun-Li's thick thighs, but it makes some sense at least. The DOA girls look like they shouldn't be able to balance themselves lol.

    EDIT 2: Just remembered on the Dreamcast, in DOA 2, there was the "Age" setting, where the older you said you are, the crazier the boob physics were :ROFLMAO:. This whole franchise is for pervs, save for the people who play it in tournaments. This may kill it off smh.

    It is a pretty good fighting game but boobs surely sold it to most. After the mess that DOA5 was in PC, I doubt I'll ever buy another. Quite possibly one of the worst ports ever and poor controls without ability to remap is a big finger to PC users too.

    The Social Justice Warrior's "War on Men" continues. Radical, sexist, feminists hate anything men like including pretty girls. They must be opposed and denied political power at all cost. They have destroyed Star Wars and now they want to destroy computer gaming.

    Well all I can say is as a fan of the DOA series since the first release for the PS1 that took me hours to unlock all the costumes, the T&A part of the game was a big draw. The fighting game is also pretty good, I always loved the counter system in DOA. Still for me this game has always been about unlocking skimpy outfits for the lady characters as the whole reason to constantly play it for hours at all the various difficulty levels. I think there were originally 10 costumes in the PS1 per female character and like 5 for each of the men and you had to play the game to the end at different difficulty levels to unlock them. They pretty much screwed this feature up since the invention of DLC. Now you don't need to unlock them because all the nice costumes you just buy the DLC for which reduced my desire to even play the game even more.

    As a member of their target audience I won't be buying it and usually I am the first one in line to buy the DOA games. The only one I didn't immediately buy at release was DOA5 PC and that was because of the fact they didn't port the PS4 version but the PS3 version of the game and had missing features like the tearing clothes as you fought. I eventually did buy it on PC but man was it a terrible port and I still have not forgiven Tecmo for porting the inferior PS3 version, this stunt of trying to get positive PR from the SJW community who never bought their games in the first place isn't helping their image, but actually making it worse in the eyes of their fans. I am certain this will backfire on them. If they do DLC it back to normal, I am certain it will make their reputation even worse than it already is. It'll put them in a kind of limbo where their old fans just don't give a shit about them anymore as they already have the reputation as DLC whores, so all this does is reduce their guaranteed sales (original fanbase), and the SJW potential customers who have never bought their game in the first place will most definitely not fill in those lost sales. Let's just say for arguments sake the SJW customers can fill in the void for the missing original fanbase, their sales will still tank severely in comparison to the DOA5 release because Tecmo's main income from DOA5 I am certain is the overpriced easy to produce costume DLC lol. I have to say there is a part of me kind of looking forward to see what happens.
