Team Ninja adding new characters and stages.

Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja have confirmed Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, first announced for Japan in this week’s Famitsu, for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in North America and Europe this fall.

The updated release will add the “Skill Info Plus” and tutorial modes found in PS Vita’s Dead or Alive 5 Plus, additional characters like Ninja Gaiden‘s Momiji, and new stages-like Ninja Gaiden‘s Sky City Tokyo.

More details, including more characters and stages, are expected to be revealed in the coming months.

  • PrinceHeir

  • 武神水樹

    I remember them saying no dlc for DOA5 and all characters will be on the disc

    • bloodiOS

      I suppose that means that this version is going to be retail-only then.

  • bloodiOS

    No surprise here. There wouldn’t be any point in limiting the quickly cash-grab to Japanese folks, after all.

    Sweet, my friend just lent me vanilla. I was going to get my own copy, but now that this popped up…

  • Ritsujun

    Thank you Sony for making DOA5 free on PS+.

  • PrinceHeir

    and why the hell did Team Ninja nerf her boobs from Razor’s Edge T__T

    come on now!!!!!

    why is it that Ninja Gaiden series(especially Sigma 2 and Razor’s Edge) have bigger boobs, but in Dead or Alive 5 they’re nerf as hell.


    • 武神水樹

      All the boobs in DOA5 got nerfed :/

      • Budgiecat

        Its cause I squeezed them to hard….

  • Budgiecat

    Hurray for my procrastination on not getting the vanilla copy. Now I dont feel like I wasted any money like I did with Marvel VS Capcom 3, and Street Fighter IV…

  • rurifan

    I wonder if any of these companies realize the damage they’re doing to themselves by training customers not to buy new games because a better version always comes out.

      Japanese gamers seem to eat it up though. The rest of the world, not so much.
