Dead or Alive Xtreme's Zack Island stage returns.

Dead or Alive 5

The latest round of Dead or Alive 5 download content is now available for PlayStation 3, and will be available for Xbox 360 on January 29. It includes a free stage (from Dead or Alive Xtreme) and three new character costume packs.

  • Zack Island Stage (Free): This fresh new stage is set on a lush tropical island with clear blue sea and white sandy beaches—the perfect place to escape winter doldrums! Battles take place on a large beach and can carry into the waves of the neighboring sea. The sea water is a “slip zone” where characters are more vulnerable to lower body attacks, which can stagger opponents. Now players can enjoy seaside battles with new moves such as Bayman’s Death Punisher. Tropical items such as coconuts can fall from trees when shaken or hit during battles, so watch out for falling objects!
  • Hotties Swimwear Pack 1 ($4.99, €4.99, 500 yen, 400 Microsoft Points): Includes beach outfits for Kasumi, Kokoro, Helena Douglas, and Sarah Bryant.
  • Hotties Swimwear Pack 2 ($4.99, €4.99, 500 yen, 400 Microsoft Points): Includes beach outfits for Hitomi, Leifang, Mila, and Pai Chan.
  • Hotties Swimwear Pack 3 ($4.99, €4.99, 500 yen, 400 Microsoft Points): Includes beach outfits for Ayane, Christie, Tina Armstrong, and Lisa Hamilton.
  • Hotties Swimwear Bundle ($12.99, €12.99, 1040 Microsoft Points): Includes all three Hotties Swimwear Packs.

Additionally, game update version 1.03 is available now on PlayStation 3 (again, Xbox 360 owners will get it next week.) Find full details here.
