Dead or Alive series

Group Description

A series of fighting games made by Tecmo, originally a coin-op title. The games feature a heavy focus on counterattacks and interactive environments, but are best known for their improbably-proportioned female characters.

Aside from the fighting games, there are also two beach volleyball titles.

The series was created by Tomonobu Itagaki, who produced until his departure from Tecmo in 2008.
