Dead or Alive (デッドオアアライブ Deddo oa Araibu?) is a video game series that is primarily composed of fast-paced 3D fighting games for arcades and home systems. The series is produced by Tecmo and developed by Team Ninja. Its story and characters are the creation of Tomonobu Itagaki, who has since left the company and is no longer working on the series. The Dead or Alive franchise is arguably as well known for its cast of busty female characters and the animation of their breasts as it is for its combat. This aspect of the game's popularity led to the creation of the spin-off game Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball and its sequels, where the women and their sex appeal play a more focal role than it does in the core Dead or Alive series.


In 2005 a Dead Or Alive movie was released.It was rated PG-13 and flopped at the box office.It never gained it's production values.It had genarlly negative reviews.
