The ESRB Knows Dead Or Alive Too Well

Japanese fighting game Dead or Alive features a bevy of curvy ladies punching and kicking each other in the face. For years now, the DoA‘s have been talking up two things: Fighting game mechanics and boob physics.

So when the Entertainment Software Rating Board had a crack at the latest DoA, Dead or Alive 5, it sure hit all the high notes: Here’s the memorable bits:

Most female fighters are dressed in revealing outfits (large amounts of cleavage); their breasts sometimes jiggle while standing or fighting. Some bikini-style costumes (with thin strips of cloth) barely cover fighters’ bodies, exposing large amounts of breasts/buttocks; one hologram-like figure appears to be nude-though her reflective skin obscures any discernible details (i.e., nipples or genitalia). In Photo mode, players can zoom in on fighters’ cleavage or underwear as they pose for the camera. Some scenes are coupled with sexual innuendo (e.g., “Pleasure me,” “Enough with the foreplay.”).

Dead or Alive is rated “M” for “Mature”. So is this ESRB rating description.
