Team Ninja Warning: Game-Breaking Bug In DOA5LR
This is a big oops on the part of the developer.
As you can see on Team Ninja's Twitter page, there's a crazy game-busting bug in the recently released Dead or Alive 5: Last Round.
Thankfully, it only seems to affect the German, Spanish, French and Italian versions of the game; the English, Japanese and traditional Chinese versions should be fine. But here's the warning from the designers:
Tutorial Lesson 40.8/40.9 does not have freeze issue when u play that mode with Japanese, English, Traditional Chinese and Korean. #DOA5LR— Team NINJA (@TeamNINJAStudio) February 23, 2015
This bug is severe enough to cause the game to freeze and it can even corrupt save data. We don't like to see such massive bugs in games but hey, it happens. On the flip side, because the bug is found in a Tutorial mode, usually undertaken by those first starting the game, losing your save data wouldn't be a catastrophe for most players.
Even so, it obviously needs to be fixed and Team Ninja says they're working on it.
