Dead or Alive: Dimensions is set to be the latest installment in the Dead or Alive franchise. In development for the Nintendo 3DS, Dimensions will be the first Dead or Alive game to have 3D graphics, and it will be a return to the series's fighting game roots. It will also be the third Dead or Alive title to be released for a handheld console (the first two being Girls of DOA BlackJack and Dead or Alive Paradise), but it will be the series's first fighting-game title for a handheld.
