View Full Version : Are we ever going to see more costumes?

Ive been wondering for a long time if Tecmo ever plans to release new costumes for the game on the marketplace like they did on that xbox magazine disc for doa3. Im sure there are a lot of people that would buy it. Id buy it even if it was priced out like the guitar hero songs.

Probably not because of what Fonkey Monkey said, but DOA5 is the first 'milestone' for the game, so heck, they should do some good stuff i.e. make new costumes.

GI: Whatís your general take on downloadable content? With the 360, itís almost an expectation that games are going to have downloadable content. With DOA 4 there was talk about downloading lobbies, characters and costumes. Is that something thatís still in the works, or are you not really worried about it at this point?
Itagaki: I donít think people would be that interested in downloading new avatars or lobbies for that particular game, just thinking about our audience. If we were going to do something, weíd want to do a new stage or a new balanced set of moves, things like that. Itís something weíd love to do, but unfortunately, as weíve been talking about, we have finite manpower and so many projects that weíre doing. I always like to pursue that kind of thing when we can. This goes back to what I was talking about earlier with the soldiers and the commanders. Iím the only one in Team Ninja who can do the balance testing for Dead or Alive games, so if I were to try to incorporate a new move list or something like that it would probably take at least a month of just straight-out playtesting in order to get it where I wanted it. Which means every project that Iím working on would have to be put on hold for an entire month. Itís always a balancing act. I do feel bad, and I apologize to the Dead or Alive fans in that they havenít seen anything new come out that way, but I have to take on things one at a time. To be honest, I donít think that Dead or Alive 4 is such a bad game that itís going to require a new move list right away, so right now my message to Dead or Alive fans would be to sit tight and something new will be coming along at some point.


so it may be coming :P:Bounce:
