The developers of Dead or Alive, Team Ninja, are very sensitive about the objectification of women in entertainment.
Team Ninja stands firm on their decision to not release DOAX3 in the west over the fear of backlash of objectifying women. Their character designs are here to stay.
If you’ve never played a Dead or Alive game, Its known best for its voluptuous and jiggly female characters. While that’s what most people focus on, I feel I should include that DOA has always been an all around solid fighting game series.
Back in February Team Ninja said, “We obviously pay a great deal of attention to blogs and user feedback, but at the same time, we have to hold our own and say ‘Hey guys, at the end of the day, this was our thing,’ We have to have some integrity behind what we set out to do.”
