Dead or Alive 5 patch lets players control characters' breasts

PS3 patch adds motion control 'support'

Team Ninja has released a new patch for Dead or Alive 5 which, among other things, lets players manually control the movement of the female fighters' breasts.

A reader on GameFAQs noticed that after installing the new 1.03A patch for the PS3 version of the game, he could move female characters' breasts around by shaking the DualShock controller.

Naturally, numerous videos illustrating this new addition have begun surfacing, including this one spotted by Kotaku:

Game director Yohei Shimbori has claimed Tecmo Koei originally planned "a new, more mature, look" for the veteran fighting series, but the version was shelved following feedback from fans demanding "bigger breasts."

The director claimed there is "still room for having sexualised aspects...If you have a solid fighting game system there, there's nothing wrong with having beautiful characters as a layer on top of that - that's another layer of entertainment that there's a need for. If there wasn't a need for it, people wouldn't have responded to the alpha demo like they did, and send us feedback."

The PS Vita version of the game, Dead or Alive 5 Plus, is set to release in Europe on March 22 and in the US on March 19.
