Dead or Alive 3 - Summary

Dead or Alive® 3, the latest installment in the popular fighting series from Tecmo, is available exclusively for Xbox. Dead or Alive 3 offers a host of new features, including new characters, lighting effects, muscle and clothing movement, interactive environments and more. Players can choose from a variety of new and returning characters to engage in hours upon hours of frenzied fighting. Up to four players can battle it out in multiplayer mode while single-player mode offers many expansive levels to explore.

  • Multi-faceted environments: Dead or Alive 3 boasts the most expansive fighting environments ever created. Multi-tiered settings enable challengers to move throughout multiple areas within a specific level, and interactive environments feature destructible scenery that adds to the action. Varying terrain such as mountains, slopes, and sand dramatically affect gameplay.
  • Realistic physics and graphical detail: A dynamic physics engine and life-like character models provide a stunning degree of realism. State-of-the-art clothing and muscle animation bring vivid detail to each encounter. Dramatic lighting, shadows and reflections work together to create a compellingly realistic experience. Revolutionary water effects seen in puddles, ponds and oceans enhance already jaw-dropping gameplay environments.
  • Character enhancements: New characters such as Hitomi and Christie square up against old favorites like Kasumi, Lei-Fang and more. New costumes, moves and reversals take the deep fighting engine to the next level.
  • In-depth game features: Improved story mode immerses you in a compelling story told through enhanced cinematic movie sequences. Up to four players can battle it out in an intense multiplayer mode. Intriguing multiple game endings present a powerful game finale that changes with each character.
