DOA5U shows new features, costumes

The latest trailer and batch of screens for Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate show the title's new game modes, costumes and pre-order packs. Team Ninja's fighting game is coming in early September.



DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE SHOWS OFF NEW FEATURES FOR OFFLINE PLAY PLUS COSTUMES, BATTLE MODES AND PRE-ORDER INCENTIVES

Team NINJA, today released information for DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE highlighting new offline gameplay modes and character customization features. A plethora of costumes include new selections for each character and specialized “Pop Idol” sets. Players can now re-experience favorite battles and story scenes with highly customizable character animations. Gameplay additions include Team Fight mode, the return of Survival mode items, improved training modes, plus nearly 1000 titles will be unlockable. In addition, customers who pre-order the game at GameStop and Amazon will each receive exclusive costume packs for select female fighters at launch. Team NINJA has released new game play footage and screenshots showcasing the new additions.

A DEAD OR ALIVE game would not be complete without deep modes to help improve combat skills. In Team Fight mode, put together a team and compete against another player or the COM to takedown all of the characters on the opposing team. Characters must be selected strategically balancing skill sets, speed and styles in order to gain the advantage, and ultimately, the win. Icons below the health bar keep count of how many enemies are left to defeat. Improved training modes add new lessons for Tutorial mode, while Combo Challenge mode adds the ability to practice moves and strategies including Power Launchers and tag combos. Survival Mode now includes the return of items that are dropped with a ground attack or when an opponent is defeated. Each of the nine items has a special benefit such as a watermelon that will fully restore health if needed or reward bonus points. Additionally, the Move List from DEAD OR ALIVE 5 PLUS has been expanded in DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE with even more detailed information. Nearly 1000 new titles are available with a huge library for each character. Battling in different modes, clearing new missions and other new challenges unlock titles to be used to customize player profiles.

Costumes are abundant with not just a new outfit, hairstyle and animation for each of the girls, but also “Pop Idol” sets. The three “Pop Idol” sets showcase sisters Ayane and Kasumi in classic “JPOP” style; a schoolgirl inspired set for Hitomi, Kokoro, Leifang and Mila; and a seductive “bad girl” set for Helena, Lisa, Momiji, Rachel, Sarah and Tina. Costumes obtained in DEAD OR ALIVE 5 can also be transferred adding to the immense selection.

Players can relive favorite entrance and victory animations and story scenes with highly customizable character appearances. Accessible through “Movies”, players can finally personalize their experience in incredible detail including costume, hairstyle and more.

DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE is developed by Team NINJA and published by Tecmo Koei America. The ultimate Dead or Alive 5 package will release on September 6th, 2013 for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

While I'm not much of a fighting game guy, I always liked this series when I had just an original Xbox. Great animations, feedback, and no need for flashy particle effects like Tekken. That said, I'll confess to rubbing one out to DOA 3 back when fast internet (2001) wasn't a thing yet :P

Tecmo haven't done anything classy in about 20 years.

Oh and DOA5U will get a bounding mechanic. I guess it's kinda like in Tekken. But no detailed information so far from TN how it will exactly work.


@the casual costume talk

Well, at least the pre-order outfits are somehow detailed and not just flat stuff like most of the costumes they are releasing via DLC. And no I'm not a fan of the outfits, altough I have to admit that Ayane and Kasumi look pretty cute in her "J-Pop idols" outfit. Especially, Ayane, of course, lol.
