    Of course female characters get bikinis, but male characters get some lame, frumpy boardshorts. :/

    • Luna Kazemaru

       Well what else they where pose to get. >.>

      • Hours

        Preferably something that doesn’t go to the knee.

        There are a lot of different types of swimwear for men that are more appealing than boardshorts.

        • Arrei

          Sure, but the same could be said for the bikinis, right? Both show off characters’ physiques, both are not the most revealing swimwear they could wear, and both aren’t the most modest of swimwear either.

          • Stuart Nisbet

            Bikinis don’t go to the knee. Bikinis show way more flesh.

          • Arrei

            Well, yeah. But the point was that they were going for pretty normal swimsuits there. On the covered end would be wetsuits or something. On the skimpy end would be speedos and g-strings or sling bikinis.
            Hanging out in the middle of the road is the classic bikini and classic shorts ensembles.

        • Luna Kazemaru

           It still does not matter.

    • Talbot

      Yeah, what is exactly wrong with that? It’s innocuously normal. It’s unless however, if you want to entertain with the idea of stuffing a dude in a mankini in the game (which, well, why not, I guess?)

      Now, that tuna sword. Utterly ridiculous, which is exactly why it’s awesome and I want one.

    • people aren’t that fond of sausages other than their own

      • xavier axol

        that’s right!! if anything i’ll eat my own sausage, why would i….wait what are talking about?.

    • cj_iwakura

      You can wield a fish as a weapon.

    • xavier axol

      you should wait for them to introduce the invisible suits, i’m sure males will be thrill to show their longest weapons.

    • Domii

      Huh??! lol

  • Kitestwinblades

    Siliconera’s BFT confirmed. I’m definitely ready for this game XD

  • Stuart Nisbet

    You can get shorter, tighter shorts than boardshorts. It’s unfair that they only put fanservice in for the girls, Tekken has the right idea in terms of beachwear, there’s a huge variety people – people could choose boardshorts if they want to. Boardshorts are for 14 year old boys who are afraid to wear someting appropriate to a beach and are not actual beachwear. People forget the purpose of a beach is to lounge/relax (at least in terms of society). There is not a surfing minigame in PHO so why are we getting board – surfboard – shorts? 

    Also they hardly show of the physique – unless you think the physique is only the torso. Men have legs too, and some people are attracted to those legs. They didn’t have to use a speedo, but if you’re talking about in terms of complete fairness that would’ve been the best choice as the women have only their modesty point covered.

    Point is: boardshorts aren’t sexy, bikinis are.

  • Game is amazing.  I’m holding off playing it more for now though, since I want to wait for the US launch.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Can’t wait to play on the US servers 

  • January 2013 can’t come soon enough!

  • Domii

    Wait, isn’t the Vita version out in Japan too?

  • koenshaku

    Ah I put countless hours into this game on the Dreamcast. I hope this comes to north america for PC soon I would love to play it :D

  • Testsubject909

    Damnit… Each time I see screenshots…

    Must… Get… Better computer… And keep begging and hoping that the Vita version comes faster.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Tuna blade???

    Now waiting for a certain “Submarine” being the ultimate weapon lol.^_^
