The parade of embarrassing bikinis


The majority of Dead or Alive Xtreme 2 screens shown up to this point featured relatively demure bathing suits. Even the “official” ones released during the recent Tokyo Game Show and X06 in Spain continued that trend.

However, the demo on the show floor apparently had much more risqué items for display. The educated guess would be that there was a very strict embargo on showing this footage on mainstream web sites, which explains why the only photos capturing the skimpy bikinis are of the amateur digital camera variety. I won’t go as far to call these latest bikinis tasteless, but they certainly are quite out there. I mean…pearls? Holy moley.

Last time, the most skimpy and sought after outfit was the jeweled Venus, but it appears there are at least TWO new jeweled bikinis now. The tear drop bikini Kasumi is wearing also falls into the “whoa mama” category. In many ways these are far more outrageous than if they were outright naked. Still, as a man I can’t be too mad at Team Ninja. Well not for the DOAX2 shots, but maybe for the new unnamed game they unveiled.

There’s only concept art for this mystery Team Ninja game. Even so, I’m not too wild on them. The pants bug me the most, but the patterns all along the outfit aren’t giving me the good vibes either. It could end up meshing quite well with the aesthetic in-game. We’ll see.

One more game I’m looking forward too, but also earns some thumbs down is the upcoming 360 version of Oneechambara. The main character is okay and has a decent style. These enemies on the other hand are just tacky. You can tell the costume is trying very hard to be cutting-edge sexy with daring slits held together by rings and other patches of cloth. Ummm, sorry it looks terrible.

A reader pointed out to me, that the just released (in Japan) Sexy Beach 3 by Illusion also features tan line technology. The difference here is that you actually rub the lotion on the girls in a very interactive manner, among other embarrassing things you’d except in an adult game.

Why is the girl in the "mystery" game wearing Mickey Mouse ears?

That's right people, everything you perverts wanted to do in DOAX, is nicely taken care of by Illusion's Sexy Beach 3. Buy that instead :)

Oh god. Yeah, just wait until Jack Thompson sees THESE. He'll push through legislation so evil that Pac-Man'll be outlawed.

Wataru Maruyama said...

Yeah Wicked Weasel is great. I've never heard of some of the other ones you listed. I'll have to check them out.

Wow, I wasn't even aware they had shown off any risque outfits at the trade shows. That Pearl number looks like a must get for Christie. It's like one of those ornamental undergarments made of diamonds or what have you that get a lot of attention for jewelry houses or high end clothing boutiques.

Of course, it would look ridiculous if you had her trying to dive into the sand for a flag in it.
