Tecmo Koei has released a (somewhat) new trailer for Dead or Alive: Dimensions and a bunch of screenshots. The game is set to release on May 20th in Europe and on the 24th in North America.
Dead or Alive: Dimensions is the first game in the series released on a Nintendo platform. The game includes 25 playable characters to choose from. The story mode covers the storyline from DoA to DoA 4 and has its own epilogue. The gameplay modes include online play, tag mode, photo mode, training mode, and figurine collecting for SpotPass battles (much like SSFIV 3D Edition). Tecmo will also release 34 costumes every day via SpotPass after the launch of the game. The costume distribution starts on May 24 and ends on June 26 in North America (May 20 – June 22 in Europe). The cycle will repeat itself once more from June 28 – July 31 (June 24 – July 27 in EU).
Here is the full roster:
Dead or Alive:
- Ayane, Bass, Bayman, Gen Fu, Jann Lee, Kasumi, Lei Fang, Ryu Hayabusa, Tina, Zack, Raidou
Dead or Alive 2:
- Ein, Helena, Leon, Kasumi Alpha, Gohyakumine Bankotsu-bo
Dead or Alive 3:
- Brad, Christie, Hayate, Hitomi, Omega
Dead or Alive 4:
- Eliot, Kokoro, Alpha-152

The fighting games on the 3DS are shaping up to be quite impressive. As with Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition, there is touch screen support to make the game easier to play. Tecmo takes it a step further by allowing you to actually perform combos straight from the movelist. As ridiculous as that sounds, it’s still not as cheap as doing charge moves in SSFIV at any moment. It doesn’t seem like the utilization of the touch screen for Dimensions breaks the gameplay.
You can check out the somewhat new trailer below. It’s actually an older trailer from a few months ago but it’s now in English instead of Japanese (and even then…).
