Nintendo and TECMO KOEI EUROPE, European publisher of interactive entertainment software, has confirmed they have entered into a distribution agreement for DEAD OR ALIVE Dimensions game for Nintendo’s newly released portable gaming system, Nintendo 3DS.

DEAD OR ALIVE Dimensions will be arriving in May 2011 as part of the launch period line up of games. Under the terms of the agreement, Nintendo will be responsible for the sales, marketing and distribution of the game throughout South African territories, with TECMO KOEI remaining as publisher.
This is the first time ever an instalment to the world-famous fighting game franchise, DEAD OR ALIVE, has been made for a Nintendo platform. With the Nintendo 3DS bristling with new interactive features which will enhance gameplay, this newest instalment is tipped to be one of the most dynamic ever.
Containing 25 playable characters, gamers will be able to use the StreetPass feature to fight with AI controlled fighters. Make enough use of this function, and they will be able to unlock prize character figurines as rewards.
The fast paced and stylish gameplay which fans of the DEAD OR ALIVE series have been accustomed to has been developed so players can intuitively perform complex fighting combinations, utilising the touch screen to create an exhilarating new DEAD OR ALIVE experience – all of which is performed within a fully 3D rendered environment.
