The Dead or Alive franchise is back after a six year hiatus with Dead or Alive: Dimensions. The game includes every character from the DOA series and they unlock as you proceed through a variety of modes and tutorials.
"It’s exceptionally easy to execute incredible-looking combos and special moves by way of the 3DS touch screen. Most attacks are easy to pull off, and they string together in an organic, effective way, but if you’re stuck on a complex input, simply tapping it on the long list of character moves lets it loose. Fights don’t last long because these hits land hard and they are ferociously quick, so ripping through 20 or 30 fighters in the survival mode takes just a few minutes. Ripping through these bouts so quickly is dangerous for completionists—there are hundreds of collectible doodads, usually meant for taking 3D photos, which come from almost every win."
