Why do we need a remake of Dead or Alive, instead of a new installment in the series ?

blackblades313d ago (Edited 313d ago )

There's no remake it says reboot. There is a difference just like a difference with remaster as well. They all have re doesn't mean they are the same. They want to reboot and start fresh after both series with South. With there success with nioh series it might be a good idea and hopefully goes well for them and the games.

Reboot ala tomb raider...i don't think you have a problem with that.

Fighting games are too shallow, they were good at first.. up til around Tekken 3 and Soul Calibur on Dreamcast, because they had a ton of extra modes and challenges and stuff. Everything after is basically the same, or with even less content.

Sounds like you did not play a lot of fighting games after SC 1.

FinalFantasyFanatic313d ago

Really? I feel like they add way too many systems and options to some of the newer games. Like Soul Calibur 6 for example, feels like they'res just too much going on, whereas I loved 2 and memorized all the skills and options for my favorite characters, played through most of the modes as well.

Been playing Tekken for almost 30 years. It's the opposite of shallow.

Eh, beside team ninja, its platinum games and both could do good but also bad going by there history. Dmc5 devs is another or a Namco team.


What Happened to Ninja Gaiden?

Ninja Gaiden is a classic franchise that originated on the NES. It was successfully remastered in the mid-2000s but then faded away. What happened?

lucian229437d ago

Yup; it needs a revamp anyway; combat was good but story was a mess; and for some reason they made Ryu hideous; he was fine in DOA2-3, i'm not sure why they made him look like an older generic plastic man.
