DOA Is MIADead Or Alive 4 Delayed? In a surprise shift that may disappoint long-time Dead Or Alive fans, retail chains have moved back the release date of Tecmo's fighter to December 1. Both Electronics Boutique and GameStop list Dead Or Alive 4, Team Ninja's dynamic 3D fighter, as releasing eight days after the console launch, Tuesday, November 22, to Thursday, December 1. Retailers have been known to regularly and illogically change release dates, but that game was included in several bundles for which consumers have already pre-paid, and those too have shifted. In the long-term, fighting fans will still get their fisticuffs on this holiday, but they will have to wait just a little longer.
