9w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill shared a Q&A from Team Ninja for Dead or Alive 5 Plus which arrives on PlayStation Vita today.
To quote: Dead or Alive, Team Ninja's long-running fighting game franchise, is getting its first PS Vita installment today in the form of Dead or Alive 5 Plus. How does one pack a game of this magnitude into a portable form factor?
Do any concessions need to be made to keep everything steady at 60FPS? What new features can we expect, given PS Vita's unique capabilities? We synced up with Yohei Shimbori of Team Ninja, who graciously answered these questions and more.
PlayStation.Blog: What has been your experience in terms of developing Dead or Alive 5 Plus for PS Vita? Have you had to make many concessions, or were you able to port the entire PS3 game over with minimal changes?
Yohei Shimbori, Director, Team Ninja: Certain elements of Dead or Alive 5 Plus (DOA5+) were relatively smooth in porting it to the PS Vita from the PS3. However, as you may notice from games already on the market today, a complete port in terms of graphics and physics remains a challenge which was also the case for DOA5+.
Fluid fighting motion and stellar graphics are all staples of the Dead or Alive franchise, so delivering anything...
9w ago - Sony Santa Monica Studio Lead Game Designer Seth Killian has announced that both Zeus and Isaac Join the Battle Royale today!
To quote: Just stopping by today with a quick reminder that Zeus and Isaac Clarke are live today for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, along with our new stage "Graveyard"!
Graveyard mashes up MediEvil's zombies, mausoleums, and gargoyles with elements from The Unfinished Swan, revealed via ink splats after a mid-game whiteout. It looks great and keeps the fighting honest, with a medium-width playfield and zombies that will earn you AP when destroyed.
Zeus plays as a legendary heavyweight, making each strike feel epic. He's got limited range, but with the ability to power up every attack merely by holding down the button, he can crush a cowardly opponent's guard and build AP faster than anyone.
Many of his triangle lightning attacks are also excellent at catching multiple opponents for an even faster ride towards his truly Olympian level 3 super.
Isaac Clarke is at his best harassing opponents from mid-range, with a wide variety of projectiles powered up by his unique Stasis and Kinesis powers. He's no slouch at close range either, with some mighty melee attacks and the short-range force gun, but he shines brightest harassing...
