A pair of trailers show off the features of the upcoming 3D brawler.
A pair of trailers for Dead or Alive Dimensions were released today as part of the 3DS media events in New York and Amsterdam. The videos highlighted many features of the game.
The most interesting inclusion was highlighted in a trailer released to the European media. It showed a Metroid Other: M themed stage, with Ridley acting as an environmental hazard. He flew about the stage, shooting fireballs at combatants and slamming them against the wall. The trailer ends with Samus, in her morph ball, landing at the center of the stage as the video fades out. At no point was she shown fighting, or even out of her morph ball.
The second trailer demonstrated other features of the latest DoA game including: a touch screen move list, where the player can simply tap the combo they wish to execute, "Throwdown Challenges," in which you battle the Avatars of players you encoutner via the 3DS' StreetPass system, and online play.
Samus' inclusion is no doubt due to Team Ninja being the primary developers on last year's Metroid: Other M. No details are available yet as the nature of Samus' involvement with the fighting game, however Tecmo Koei representatives confirmed to our Neal Ronaghan that an Other M stage is in the game, and that more details will be revealed soon.
