Dead or Alive 4 bursts onto the scene

Microsoft announced the fourth installation of the Dead or Alive series will be available in UK retailers from 27th January. Dead or Alive 4 utilises all of Xbox 360's exceptional technological offerings and new features. DOA4 offers the high level of game-play which has made the series so successful in the past. The fighting system has been completely revamped, now allowing even more strategy and mastery of your favourite characters. The brand new DOA countering system is the most challenging yet; it takes the game-play to a whole new level of sophistication, requiring precise timing and an intimate knowledge of your character's moves.

Alongside the familiar cast, DOA4 introduces brand new characters to be discovered, complete with a variety of outfits and even hairstyles! The game also offers huge-scale global online tournaments, detailed scoreboards, the ability to form new clans, and a new interactive lobby area featuring voice and text chat.

Xbox 360's graphics capabilities have enabled the developers at Tecmo to present intricate details, from the displacement of a single strand of hair as a character engages in action, to the course of an individual cherry blossom as it floats from the sky. Combined with the high-definition 3-D visual detail, DOA4 also possesses a rich, in-depth storyline giving the players a chance to really put themselves at the centre of the captivating DOA universe.
