Two-on-two tag team? Hah! Try seven-on-seven.

Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate will have a new team battle tournament mode where two players battle with seven-character teams. Computers can also take part.

Training mode has also seen an upgrade. New lessons have been added to the tutorials where users can learn how to put the basics to practical use. Additionally, the “Skill Info” first seen in Dead or Alive 5 Plus now offers more detailed data.

Finally, an item element has been added to Survival mode. Items will appear as you attack your enemy, which can boost your score or recover health. There is a total of nine different items. One of them is a watermelon.

Thanks, Famitsu.

    I remember these features in DOA2! Totally forgot that they weren’t in DOA5. Looking forward to them again.

    Septa-matches, interesting

  • Cry_Zero

    What about the DLC costumes. Are they included? I guess not ….

    • Charlie

      Yes, actually. All DLC costumes are included except for DLC pack 3, santa costumes and bikini outfits.

      • Cry_Zero

        Then why the fuck do they call it ULTIMATE…. i cant stand that shit… Its juist like in ULTIMATE marvel vs capcom, where 2 characters are still missing…

        • Charlie

          Think about it. You’d have to please everyone. The people who have wasted their hard-earned bucks on DLC and those who haven’t spent a dime.

          • Cry_Zero

            The name is just irritating

            • Charlie

              I don’t see it…

              • Cry_Zero

                ULTIMATE. Sounds like there is nothing more that you could buy for this game …. now?

                • Charlie

                  I think it’s expected in this day and age that there’s going to be DLC among other marketing strategies. Don’t like it, don’t buy it. Personally, I think it’s rather nice of Tecmo to release the game with content that the consumers’ have been asking for since the day of release of the first game.

      • AuroraXIII

        Oh? Do you remember where you heard about this?

        • Charlie

          The official website.

    • Red-X

      Yes, almost everything will be include. Except those 7 sets of dlcs (3 bikini, 1 cheer, 2 santa, and pack 3) that excludes from DOA:U.

    • Bob Obb

      Actually, most of the DLC is NOT included. There’s about $40 worth that will be free in DOA5U, but there’s another $80 worth that is not included. And that’s not even counting 5U’s exclusive DLC

  • Gilgamesh2025
