Dead or Alive: Dimensions Has Added Scenes, Tag-Teams, Figure-Collecting

By Ishaan . January 12, 2011 . 6:30pm

As we’ve reported previously, Dead or Alive: Dimensions has a “Chronicle” mode that recaps the events of the first four Dead or Alive games, while helping players get acquainted with a bunch of different characters.


Dimensions doesn’t just provide a recap of the old games, however. It also contains scenes and events that weren’t in the original games, to help detail the series’ storyline. Additionally, like Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition, it has you collect in-game figures of the fighters.


This is done by taking photographs of the characters within in the game, although Japanese retailer, Game Star, who leaked the feature, don’t provide any details on this front. Game Star also confirm the presence of some sort of cooperative element, Tag Team matches, and online play.

  • Now that is how you get people to get into a new game series. They should be praised for providing such a feature in the game!

    Do the figures jiggle? :D

    Oh, I’m pathetic…

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      I can’t believe I thought of the same thing…

    • kylehyde

      Same here


  • Again with the figures. Is this some kind of trend that we Western gamers didn’t know about until just recently?

      Saint Seiya fighting games for PS2 had it

  • i like the game but i think by now they just want to copy SF 3d

  • Maybe they should stop giving Game Star Info. They are clearly unreliable confidantes.

    i cannot wait for the console version. just add all DOA characters in the console games and i will be happy :P

    Figures have been in games for a long time they are not copying SFIV it’s like saying they’re copying Smash Bros. Relax.

    oh with off topic but with the recent developers posting their college years.

    here’s kojima and kamiya during their days.

    lol rock on kojima and kamiya :D

  • I want real figures *____*

    *drowns in his figure collection*

  • malek86

    If the figures are in 3D that should be interesting, a bit like having them for real, except they don’t take up shelf space or get dusty over time :D

  • “…It has you collect in-game figures of the fighters.This is done by taking photographs of the characters within in the game…”

    And we’re approaching DoA: Extreme Beach Volleyball territory here.

  • Hmm, Super Street Fighter IV 3D or DOA Dimensions…..I need a fighting game but I don’t know which one to pick, cause they’re but friggin’ awesome! Choices choices =(
