Team Ninja inspired by the Uncharted series when making Dead or Alive 5 - stage crumbling, intense action and more

Team Ninja inspired by the Uncharted series when making Dead or Alive 5 - stage crumbling, intense action and more CVG recently sat down with Yosuke Hayashi of Team Ninja for an interview regarding Dead or Alive 5 and other topics. Hayashi discusses how he got started in video games, the fact that Team Ninja was very inspired by the Uncharted series when making DoA5 and more.

Below is a bit from the article to get you started.

So, for you, who is making the best games in the world right now?

For Dead Or Alive 5 we took a lot of inspiration from Naughty Dog. Specifically it was the whole stage crumbling, and things falling off, and the characters rolling down, grabbing on to the ledges in Uncharted. We also wanted to hint at that flow you get into in Uncharted, where you know that something massive is about to happen. In Uncharted you fall off a cliff, or off a boat and things like that, and we thought moments like that would be great in DOA5's fighting system. We got really inspired by that, and we've tried to do something very similar.

Yes, the thing Naughty Dog do well is establishing the character's presence in the world, and I think it's something that works well in DOA5 as a result.

I think that we definitely were inspired by Naughty Dog's work. It's not like we're doing a cheap, superficial imitation of that game. As creators we were inspired, and it's a good opportunity right now to tell our players about this. It's something they might not notice, but we really respect Naughty Dog, their work is fantastic.

Señor Footsies - a 2D, two attack button fighter focusing mainly on ground fighting and spacing

Two pancho-wearing bandits meet up in a desolate desert to engage in a duel to the death. What better way to settle their differences than by playing footsies?

Game developer Luke "A-Rival" Esquivel created a simplistic 2D fighting game entitled Senor Footsies in which players battle for spacing with the use of only two attack buttons and successfully landing one attack will win you the round. Hitting one attack button will give you a fast low kick and hitting two simultaneously will cause the player to perform a sweep.

By default, each character walks backward at all times and holding the Walk button will allow you to move forward and advance on your opponent. This game also retains a super meter that build when you whiff attacks and rewards you with a shot from your pistol once the bar is full.

You can check out footage of this 2D, footsie heavy fighter below and be sure to check out Maxwell McGee's interview with A-Rival over on GameSpot for a full breakdown of Señor Footsies.

Team Ninja currently taking fans' balance update suggestions for next Dead or Alive 5 patch, timing and contents still being considered

Team Ninja currently taking fans' balance update suggestions for next Dead or Alive 5 patch, timing and contents still being considered Team Ninja has been quite active on Twitter lately posting about the next Dead or Alive 5 update. Through multiple Tweets they have given some insight on the steps taken when working on an update and are encouraging fans to leave their suggestions for what balance changes should be made.

Listed as directions 1 - 4, below you can check out the steps Team Ninja takes when working on completing an update.

Direction 1: As a rule, we are not going to do anything that makes all of your practice up to now pointless. We will only tweak things we feel are absolutely necessary.

Direction 2: We will balance aspects we feel are not fair. Moves that are way too strong or which have strange motion, etc. Bug fixes are included in this consideration.

Direction 3: We will not change the concept and importance of keeping each character's individuality. Rather than kill personality to make everyone the same, we'll strengthen the weak characters to make a fair fight

Direction 4: I will tweet questions about certain aspects to get your feedback. We will consider your responses carefully when we make our final decisions.
