Team Ninja highly interested in making next-gen port of Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, haven't done any work on it yet

Team Ninja highly interested in making next-gen port of Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, haven't done any work on it yet During the hustle and bustle of E3 2013 last week, Dead or Alive 5 director Yohei Shimbori dropped an interesting tidbit about a possible next-gen port of their current 3D fighter.

When asked if Team Ninja had any plans to port Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate on to the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, Shimbori stated that the hardware capabilities of the new consoles create a high interest in the possibility. Unfortunately, he goes on to mention that the team is currently not working on the next-gen title.

This is the brief message received by PlayStation Universe.

So looking at the specs and the hardware capabilities, we’re highly interested in that possibility. But at this point, we haven’t done any work on it.

How would you feel about a next-gen Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate port? Do you think a PS4/XB1 version of a game on current-gen consoles would perform well?

Let us know in the comments below.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle gameplay videos featuring Jousuke, Buccellati, Jonathan and Dio

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle developer CyberConnect2 has started an event called the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle league, where they show off gameplay of the most requested characters. While these matches are just CPUs battling eachother, it's still the only legitimate gameplay we have of these characters since most events featuring the game haven't allowed any recording.

Below, you will find two matches in one video, the first being Jousuke Higashikata, the main protagonist from Part 4, Diamond's Don't Break, against Bruno Buccellati, one of the main characters in Part 5, Vento Aureo, squaring off against eachother. The second one features the first part's main protagonist Jonathan Joestar going up against main villain of parts 1 and 3, Dio Brando. Thanks to Alfabusas JoJo Interests for this video.

While it's not exactly a high level due to CPUs squaring off against eachother, this footage should at least give you a feeling for the game. Any thoughts? Let us know in the comments.

Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- may be a next generation game, more news coming at E3 2014

Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- may be a next generation game, more news coming at E3 2014 Arc System Works is considering bringing their latest Guilty Gear title to the next generation, company president Minoru Kidooka mentioned recently.

This is just the brain storming stage of possibly taking this avenue with Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-, but Kidooka replied that users would find out more about the game at next year's E3, which creator Daisuke Ishiwatari would more than likely attend.

Not much is currently known about Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-, but the team did say the game would run on the Unreal Engine 3 and they released a pretty awesome trailer back in May.

Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate's roster is final now, director of title talks about online improvements

Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate's roster is final now, director of title talks about online improvements We posted part one of KarbyP's interview with Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate's director, Yohei Shimbori, yesterday and we've followed that up with the final piece today, including some gameplay impressions of both Momiji and Rachel.

Shimbori mentions that the game's roster is final now, and talks about some of the improvements they've made to the online mode, like bug fixes for some players who were not being able to join lobbies, stage lag issues and he adds there are some new things that they cannot discuss, yet.

There's also some additional DoA5U gameplay footage. You can find all this and more after the jump.

KarbyP: With Leon and Rachel added to the cast, is the roster final? Or are you planning to include more characters?

Shimbori: The roster is final.

KarbyP: A friend of mine who goes by Shinobi (he's a Korea-born, Tokyo-based competitive Kasumi player and made it into grand finals/top 22 for Team Ninja's first official Dead or Alive 5 tournament in Tokyo) noticed in the new E3 trailer you put out that Kasumi and Hayate have new tag pose and tag throws added in Ultimate. He'd like to thank you for that, and at the same time, request specifically for Kasumi a new Great victory pose as well as new appeals/taunts.

Shimbori: Oh yeah, I know Shinobi. As for his request... I'll think about it when he wins a tournament. (Laughs)

Director: Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate is a reflection of the feedback we received - more gameplay footage from the show floor

Director: Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate is a reflection of the feedback we received - more gameplay footage from the show floor During E3 2013, EventHubs correspondent, KarbyP, caught up with Yohei Shimbori, director of Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, to talk about the upcoming game.

Part one of his interview focuses on the system tweaks that the team made to the title, the play styles of Rachel and Leon, plus there's some footage thrown in for good measure.

You can find the rest of the content after the jump, but tomorrow evening we'll be posting the second part of the interview, which includes character impressions of Momiji and Rachel.

KarbyP: Tell us about what are the core gameplay changes you've made to DoA5 Ultimate.

Shimbori: Since we launched Dead or Alive 5, we received a lot of feedback from fans around the world. DoA5 Ultimate is a reflection of that feedback we received.

We've made numerous tweaks to the system, but the easiest one to perceive is probably the Power Launcher.

In the previous iteration, we had the Power Blow which was an attack you could use when your life was down to half or less, once per round. The Power Launcher is similar to that in terms of the activating conditions, but what it does is send your opponent flying into the sky, allowing players to follow-up with their custom juggle combos for massive damage, whereas the Power Blow sends your opponent flying into a wall.

Deciding when to use which of these two options is going to be a new tactical point that players will have to think about.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle gets bomb of new screenshots for Buccellati, Narancia and Diavolo

We've gotten a large load of new screenshots for the upcoming JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle, featuring the three cast members of the series' fifth part, Vento Aureo, that were recently unveiled as playable characters. The first of these three characters is Bruno Buccellati, the leader of the gang Passione who main character Giorno Giovanna is a part of, who uses the stand Sticky Fingers which allows him to attach zippers to objects, or even people and use them in very interesting ways.

Next is Narancia Ghirga, another member of Passione, who uses his stand Aerosmith to control a small plane which shoots bullets at his enemies. In the screenshots, we don't see any physical attacks from him, suggesting that he will be a very strong zoner in this game. Finally, we have Diavolo, the main villain of the part, using his stand King Crimson to royally mess with anyone who tries to figure out how his stand works. The basic gist of it is that he can see a few seconds into the future, and choose to skip the events he sees if he does not like them (for example, if he sees himself being punched, he can choose to make himself not exist during those few seconds, making the event not happen). It's complicated, and if you don't get it, just adopt the mantra 'it just works' and accept it.

There are also images showing the main menu of the game, stage hazards on newly unveiled stages, and some story mode screens, presumably from the game's story mode cinematics. A comeback mechanic akin to Tekken's Rage Mode was detailed as well, but the pictures and the text don't give that much information about it, only saying that when low on HP you will start glowing and deal more damage. But enough talk, check out all of these glorious screenshots below.

Hit the jump for the rest of the screens.

More Shaq Fu trademarks filed by Mine O'Mine

More Shaq Fu trademarks filed by Mine O'Mine Mine O'Mine, the company behind Shaq.com, has recently filed more trademarks for the 2D, 16-bit fighter Shaq Fu. These new trademarks come not even a full month since the first batch they filed back in May.

It is possible that these may just be for protective purposes but with so much activity in a short period of time and the "Shaqfighter" trademark, we could possibly be seeing something fighting game related from the Ex-NBA star.

These trademarks cover video games, computer software, video game characters, electronics action games, playing cards, and online games.

Would you enjoy seeing Shaquille O'neal return to the realm of fighting games? Let us know below.
