Dead or Alive 5 Plus first details

PS Vita port adds touch control, new training modes.

Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja have shared the first details on Dead or Alive 5 Plus, its recently announced enhanced port for PlayStation Vita due in Q1 2013.

The PS Vita version adds:

  • Touch Controls: Simple taps, swipes, and pinches on your opponent trigger a variety of devastating moves. Using the PS Vita’s motion sensor, you can play vertically for a first-person, full-screen view of your opponent.
  • Training Modes: Both novice and expert players will also find even more ways to up their game with new training-focused modes and a new display of advanced frame data that reveals twice the amount of information for each move compared to previous versions.

A batch of screenshots were also shared, but Tecmo Koei has said they are not from the PS Vita version. View the set at the gallery.
