Team Ninja have recently shared a number of details on their upcoming Playstation Vita release of Dead or Alive 5 Plus which is set for release on the 22nd March 2013.

The main feature of focus is the games new “Touch Fight” mode, where using the consoles touchscreen – you are able to take part in battles against the games characters yourself all with the touch of a finger. Holding the PS Vita either horizontally or (as pictured above) vertically, you can make simple swipes or taps on the touch screen to attack your opponent. A range of attacks are available via touch and swipe, and landing a five-hit combo will trigger a Critical Burst, leaving an opponent open for even more punishment. Characters will react based on where they are touched or attacked, combining the realistic feel of a first-person view with full player control.

Swiping in different directions unleashes different moves. For instance, swipe upward to launch your opponent flying into the air, opening up the opportunity to perform an air combo. Pinching the touchscreen will result in a hold if your opponent is striking or a throw if your opponent is guarding, standing, or executing a hold. When a throw or Power Blow is executed, the screen perspective changes to a cinematic view so players can enjoy watching their character dish out the punishment.
