Our hearts have felt empty for a while. We have been sorely missing breast jiggling physics, hyper sexualised combat, and glorious fan service in our games. Never fear though, for our saviour is come, DEAD OR ALIVE 6 has arrived!
There aren’t many games that I would mess with my week’s schedule to play, but fighting games will usually do it, especially if it’s this game and it comes with a DEAD OR ALIVE 6 interview with director, Yohei Shimbori.
Walking into the interview area I’m confronted by series director Shimbori dressed as Bayman with a scar so convincing I could have sworn that it just happened to be a coincidence. After showing me through the menus and running through some combo challenges, I got to ask him some questions about the upcoming title and its development.
Being a huge fan for many years of JRPGs, I must admit that the Atelier series had passed me by simply because it was a little too anime for past me. Now that I’m older and more partial to big-eyed anime girls, the recent release of Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland DX for Nintendo Switch felt like a great time to jump in.
