“Itagaki might have left, but the hatred for Tekken is still around in the team [laughter]. So when we see Street Fighter X Tekken and those kinds of games… We’re coming out with Dead or Alive. We don’t need to rely on anything else to present Dead or Alive as a strong fighting game in the genre. We don’t need that kind of thing to prove ourselves. We understand that Tekken has… It opened the way for 3D fighting games, we understand that it has a long history, we respect that history, but we’re coming in as a challenger to those 3D fighting games. We’re there to represent and take them on.” – Team Ninja studio head Yosuke Hayashi to VentureBeat.

    Not wanting to be like Tekken can only be a good thing. It’s the worst beat-em-up in the genre. It’s depth is meagre, and it’s always been atrociously balanced.
