Quick Quote: Team Ninja tried to 'tone down' sex appeal but fans wanted bigger boobs

"We were getting feedback from the overseas offices to tone down the sexuality -- to tone down the sexiness of the game, and of the characters. We actually got a lot of feedback from people who were playing it, saying, 'We want bigger breasts. Make the characters more like that.' That was kind of surprising."
Give them boobs or give them death! Remember when Team Ninja wanted to tone down Dead or Alive 5's (DoA 5) sex appeal? Remember when they didn't? We now know why that's the case and fans have themselves to thank says the game's director Yohei Shimbori. He explained to Gamasutra (via EventHubs) that fans wanted bigger breasts.
