Dead or Alive Paradise Pool Hops To North America In March

By Spencer . January 22, 2010 . 2:46pm

doap_b29Tecmo confirmed Dead or Alive Paradise for North America with an e-mail that says “paradise in the palm of your hand.”


In Dead or Alive Paradise you hang out on New Zack Island, earn money by playing beach volleyball and spend it on buy gifts for Dead or Alive’s female stars. Woo the ladies with 100+ swimsuits and then take pictures of them which can be saved in a private album.


The announcement came with a gallery of swimsuit pictures and a spring/March release date. The fact sheet says March, while the e-mail says spring. Dead or Alive Paradise is slated for April 2 in Japan.

    I still think the original Xbox game was brilliant in terms of casual game design. The overarching goal of course was to get the swimsuits on the girls. But such a large goal was broken into small discrete parts (a certain suit on a certain girl). And to do that you need to win affection through the use of a gift giving mechanic. Add in a fairly fun if not overtly challenging volleyball game to make money and you have a game where in 30 minutes you could easily achieve the subgoal of getting a certain suit on a certain girl. So basically you play a volleyball game that is fairly casual and that leads you to achieving goals that are easy to see and rewarding at the moment.

      Yeah, I love the first game and donning nice swim suits on the gals, the volleyball matches were actually fun to play. Can’t say I liked the sequel w/ its crazy bouncy physics..

    I hear it’s coming to both PSN and UMD. In this case, I’ll probably go for the PSN release. After all, it’s something you want to play in small doses, between one complex game and another. Can’t be bothered to switch discs everytime I want to have some quick fun.

      I like the convenience of not having to switch disc, games you just play every once in a while like Half min heroes, but I think I would stick w/ the UMD w/ the nice cover, back cover, and manual. I’m glad this is coming over and no need to import!

    I’ve actually never played one of these. Maybe I’ll pick this up later just to see.

    Though games like BBS and now this show that the PSP is quite a powerful handheld, graphically. Very impressive.
