After much speculation, Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja have confirmed that Dead or Alive 5 is currently in development for the Playstation 3 / XBox360 and is set for release PAL regions this Spring as both retail and digital releases. The game is set to bring an even more complete release from the original DOA5 game with the inclusion of all new modes straight from DOA5+, new stages, new fighters including the first ever DOA appearance of Momiji and levels from the Ninja Gaiden series to bring what they hope will be the best in fighting entertainment.
Yosuke Hayashi | The Leader of Team Ninja
Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate is a great addition to our franchise. The game has a lot to offer and we’re excited that our fans will have the opportunity to enjoy an experience that delivers on our signature high energy fighting entertainment.
Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate is hoped to be the definitive DOA5 package, with new content aimed to bring players the best 3D fighting experience to date. The addition of modes from DOA5 Plus , including “Skill Info Plus” and a tutorial mode, will allow novice and expert fighters to refine their fighting style with razor-fine precision. Players will take on the roles of their favorite Dead or Alive fighters—as well as combatants new to the franchise—in an intense, action-packed brawler set in visually striking locations from around the world. The game’s dynamic interactive stages include the return of classic fan favorites as well as new locations from the NINJA GAIDEN series such as Sky City Tokyo, and features deadly new danger zones, including the Great Buddha Statue, that change with the flow of the fight.
Mindscape is set to handle distribution in Australia.
