Tecmo Koei made it known a while back that they would be making a Dead or Alive (http://multiplayerblog.mtv.com/tag/dead-or-alive/) game for Nintendo's 3DS. The DoA world of games is expansive and crosses many genres (some of which the franchise has created from the ground up). One thing's for sure, though; many gamers probably nodded when then they first found out about a 3DS DoA project and assumed that it would be part of Nintendo's broader plans to make the 3DS appeal to older age groups. While it's not a game based almost entirely around beach activities and precariously tiny bikinis, "Dimensions" should contribute to that cause as a fighting game.

Characters showing up for the fights include Kasumi, Ayane, and Hayate, according to a report published by Famitsu (http://www.famitsu.com/news/201009/09033156.html) and analyzed in English at Destructoid (http://www.destructoid.com/dead-or-alive-dimensions-fighter-coming-to-3ds-183474.phtml). Beyond that, details look slim, but Tecmo reportedly doesn't want it to play like a standard fighter, and as a DoA game, I can't imagine that "Dimensions" was ever in danger of suffering such a fate.

The graphics look clean in the initial screenshots, and that bodes well for the game and the 3DS, which remains an odd system to get a visual feel for via 2-D images. Stay alert watching reports out of the Tokyo Game Show next week, however, and you may see some more info from the developers, since they'll be in attendance.

Is a DoA fighting game going to be on your buy list if you pick up a 3DS? What do you think of the first screenshots? Share your impressions in the comment section below.
