Team Ninja wants realistic women for Dead or Alive 5, plus new screenshots and Ninja Gaiden 3 box art

Team Ninja has been busy with Dead or Alive 5 and Ninja Gaiden 3. Team Ninja leader Yosuke Hayashi wants to get away from the previous boob-obsessed Dead or Alive games. Now with former leader Itagaki out of the way, he can focus on having the female fighters be more realistic. Let’s put the class in ass.

“We’ve always had the sex factor in the game; in the past, the female characters had to have big breasts, they had to have scanty dress,” says Hayashi. “In DoA 5 especially, we’re trying to focus on the real women that surround us; the voice of a female, the mannerisms. We are being realistic about it.”

“We want to show something that’s more high class, that adult males of our generation could look at a woman [character] and be impressed with her as a woman, not just as a pin-up. That’s what we wanted to tell our fans.”

Team Ninja has also released new screenshots featuring Ryu Hayabusa and Hayate. So far the game is looking a lot better by trying to avoid that whole plastic look.

Ninja Gaiden 3 is hitting store shelves next month March 20, 2012, for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and here’s the released box art for it.
