Koei Tecmo and Team NINJA are working on a brand new engine for DEAD OR ALIVE 6, but we don’t yet know much about what it can achieve. In order to learn more about the inner workings of this new engine, DualShockers visited the team’s headquarters in Ichigaya, Tokyo, and talked with Director and Producer Yohei Shimbori, Art Director and Scenario Writer Yutaka Saito, and Technical Expert Taku Sugawara. Since our interview was over two hours long, all of that juicy info has been split into three parts followed by additional coverage. This second part focuses on the engine and on the technology powering the game, while the first part elaborated on recent reveals and on things that have yet to be revealed (like the mysterious new female character teased by the Japanese collector’s edition).

Note: This is an updated version of an article we ran a few years back, but its content, like the game it discusses, is as relevant now as it ever was. With the news that Dambuster Studios parent company Koch Media has finally brought the TimeSplitters rights back to the series' remaining developers, it seems entirely worth digging in to why the return of TimeSplitters (and potentially its second entry in particular) is such a big deal, and a better fit in 2018 than it was even at the time of its original release. **Article continues below** I’ve never understood why anyone was surprised when Perfect Dark Zero turned out to be a bit crap.

Females on film While film school classes and incensed critics continue to debate the lack of women in film, female actresses are fighting the good fight on the silver screen itself.
