Shimbori had fun with the camera in replay mode also Yuka and the other model on stage
they hire 2 gravure girl wearing skimpy shirt and goes bananas, frigging Japan
So much for esports. I take it they’ll be banned?

I know shimbori thought he was clever in marketing the game two ways, one for Japan and one for the West, but it looks like it finally bit him in the ass.

The two women were literally slapping each others asses and shit to compare it to the game. And it got pretty damn bad with the photo mode. Like pausing it when Bass power bomb Nyo into the ground with his face ending up in her crotch. I mean...that's the program TN wanted to put on, but I kind of get why Evo pulled it after a while.

I just saw Wiz's post pop up on my twitter feed, ran back here to see what the fuck happened and wasn't disappointed. Guessing DOA6 japanese promotional streams aint safe for Twitch

Compared to his latest quote:
To be honest, we did a bit too much with some costumes in the past. And this no longer corresponds to the time in which we live. What you saw today is the farthest we'll go in terms of sexualization. And it's still very sexy!
Not to mention the spread eagle camera shot they did. I'm honestly sick of his bullshit. He's trying to have it both ways and it's annoying. Did he think having Japan in the title of the event would shield him? Did he not realize EVO is run in the West and streamed there? Did he think that a lack of subtitles would leave the West clueless as to what is going on? He also just killed his shot at esports for this game.

hahahaha holy shit
Good on EVO for taking a stance and sticking with it.

Serves Team Ninja right for trying to have the cake and eat it too.

This stream came in with a plan to make a specific message. I guess that means they're nakedly embracing cheesecake again?
I really wanted them to stick with the more serious approach they took during the initial reveal, I guess mainly because I miss Virtua Fighter and it's not coming back (and this would be the closest thing to it),

But since they're going all in with bouncing tits and bikinis all of a sudden, I'll be very vocal about how I want the male characters to get speedos, bulges and rounder butts.

Yeah I kinda get why he cut the stream as it probably just went too out of control. The gravure models were having a bit too much fun and Shimbori going wild in the photo mode was just too much

, I guess mainly because I miss Virtua Fighter and it's not coming back
I dunno. Mai is coming back so who knows. I could see them come in a next gen re-release. For just dlc it would probably be just limited to Akira and Sarah. Really wanted them to come back as well. Vanessa and Kage could have been really cool additions to the others

I knew I was remembering right, shortly after game reveal they did reference Aerial Gardians:


Either it is in and is maybe unlocked during story mode, or they scrapped the stage during development, which would really suck. :(

So, after all that excitement, it's cool that Mai made it back, she looked alarmingly better in DOA5 than in KOFXIV. There was some other Dynasty Warrior character that looked nice but I fell out of the DLC vortex long ago.

It's not that fucking difficult to say here's all the bouncy T&A and penis bulge DLC you can eat, but here's also a switch to turn it off if you're planning to stream on a PG-13 e-sports platform. It's like large chunks of KT are run by morons.

So, is there any detail on the F2P version? I know they said they were doing it, but do we know if it's coming out on the same launch day, and pricing for individual characters, etc?

T&A jiggle for female characters will probably never be downgraded to just DLC, and we'll never get bulges or butt jiggle for the male characters. The very same idiots who claim "what's wrong with sexy characters" referring to blatantly objectified women are often also uncomfortable with sexualised male characters. They use anecdotal evidence like "my girlfriend doesn't see the issue with the female characters in this game and she thinks the guys being shirtless is good enough / equal" - although the idea that these people actually have girlfriends make it seem like they're just straight up lying.

Just made a thread, the announcements are pretty big.

Regarding the stream stuff, that's pretty funny, and I guess miscommunication happened somewhere. It was pretty tame for your typical japanese stream standards (even tamer than a Famitsu stream), so I'm not sure what they expected at EVO Japan.

Just as I was hoping we were entering an era in which is was not embarrassing to like DOA.

Their mixed messaging is hilarious though, they act like Japan is behind some iron curtain behind which we have no idea what's going on.

I could be wrong, I don't think Manny has enough information on the dev side of things to answer a lot of the questions Shimbori gets. It would probably be best to have both available to answer questions, but at the media events I've been to, Shimbori, Manny and Tom Lee were all available for questions.
That needs to change. Their marketing team and or team have been doing this stuff for years now..
