In a shocking revelation it has come to frution that Dead or Alive 5 was inspired by Uncharted.
Now you may be like “but it’s a fighting game, makes no sense?!”, oh but it does. There’s no genre limitation for set pieces. Dead or Alive 5 producer Hosuke Hayashi described how they were inspired by Uncharted.
“Specifically it was the whole stage crumbling, and things falling off, and the characters rolling down, grabbing on to the ledges in Uncharted. We also wanted to hint at that flow you get into in Uncharted, where you know that something massive is about to happen,” he said to CVG.
“In Uncharted you fall off a cliff, or off a boat and things like that, and we thought moments like that would be great in DOA5′s fighting system. We got really inspired by that, and we’ve tried to do something very similar.
“As creators we were inspired, and it’s a good opportunity right now to tell our players about this. It’s something they might not notice, but we really respect Naughty Dog, their work is fantastic.”
Almost everyone respects Naughty Dog. When you create a game that is 96 on Metacritic that comes with the territory.
