Dead or Alive 5 producer Yosuke Hayashi comments on oversexualised female characters

Dead or Alive 5 producer Yosuke Hayashi comments on oversexualised female characters MCV Pacific was recently able to get an interview with Dead or Alive 5 producer Yosuke Hayashi.

There are quite a few subjects covered here from how making the game has changed without Tomonobu Itagaki, DoA5 being more 'sophisticated' than previous game's, oversexualised of female characters, the audience they are trying to reach, cross over with Virtua Fighter and more.

Has anything about the production or marketing of Dead or Alive 5 been changed in any way after the recent furore surrounding representations of women in games, considering that the franchise is known for its oversexualised female characters?

With the representation of female characters in the Dead or Alive franchise, we’ve always wanted to make the girls look as attractive as possible, and that’s something that’s not going to change for us at all.

We are a Japanese developer, and we’re making the female characters with our common sense and our creative sense. When you take that to countries outside of Japan, it tends to be very misinterpreted in some cases, people considering it sexist or derogatory etc.

For us, within our culture, we’re showing women like that, and we’re trying to make them look attractive. We can’t help if other cultures in other countries around the globe think that it’s a bad representation. Within our nationality and within our national borders, we obviously have morals that we create our female characters from, but within our Japanese sensibilities, we’ve made those characters the way they are and we’re not going to stop doing that.

If you're new to the Dead or Alive series or missed it, towards the end of July Tecmo Koei released a trailer showing the games pre-order bonus the Bunny Angels pack.

Is Capcom willing to re-use UMvC3's engine? Region locked games in the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary collection set

Is Capcom willing to re-use UMvC3's engine? Region locked games in the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary collection set With the upcoming release of the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary collection set, some fans were wondering if any of the games are region locked, since many on the Xbox 360 games are.

A Capcom-Unity member posted a thread on the Ask Capcom forums looking for some answers. Here is how Christian Svennson replied.

To the best of our knowledge, the only things in the 25th anniversary set that won't work in other territories are the digital items for PS3. On X360, all of our discs are worldwide subs and the token codes are identical regardless of what territory you redeem them.

On PS3, the digital tokens are region specific. You would need to have a North American PSN account to redeem, download and install them.

Hit the jump to see how Svensson replies in another thread where it is asked if Capcom is willing or would want to re-use the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 engine in an upcoming game.
