Team Ninja Host The First Dead or Alive: Dimensions Tournament



Last week, Team Ninja held a Dead or Alive: Dimensions tournament in at Tecmo’s Tokyo office, which brought together some of the best DOA players from the U.S. and Japan to take Dimensions for a spin. You can watch a summary video of the tournament above.


Overall, tournament participants appeared to have had good things to say about Dimensions, including the winner of the tournament, who said he’d been with the series right from its origins on the Sega Saturn.


We’ll have more coverage of Dead or Alive: Dimensions next week, including some insight from Team Ninja head, Yosuke Hayashi, into just which game Dimensions is based on and what changes have been made to the fighting system.
