Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate has just been announced for the PS3 and 360. Tecmo Koei Europe plans on releasing the new Dead or Alive title this fall.
What’s particularly exciting about this new title is the inclusion of the Ninja Gaiden characters like Momiji and Ryu Hayabusa; complimenting this feature will be a slew of Ninja Gaiden stages that players will be able to enjoy. Alongside the Ninja Gaiden content is a number of new stages, such as Sky City Tokyo. New modes will also be included in this game, like “Skill Info Plus” and tutorial mode. Online mode will once again be present, allowing players to compete against each other and spectate matches.
“DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE is a great addition to our franchise,” said Yosuke Hayashi, Team NINJA leader. “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.”
Characters from Virtual Fighter, such as Akira, Pai, and Sarah Bryant will make an appearance; and some of your favorite characters from the previous Dead or Alive games are to return. Hayate, Ayane, Kasumi, Hitomi, Bayman, Christie, Lei Fang, Zack, Kokoro, Bass, Rig, Jann Lee, Helena, Lisa, Brad Wong, Eliot, and Tina will all be included in Dead or Alive 5.
Developed by Team Ninja and published by Tecmo Koei, Dead or Alive was created by Tomonobu Itagaki 17 years ago. This fighting game series is known for its stunning and sexy gameplay, as well as beautiful 3D animation. The exposure of the franchise spans across a plethora of platforms, such as the Playstation, Xbox, Nintendo 3DS, and most notably arcade. With each entry the character roster grows, as well as the gameplay mechanics. If history is any indication, players will be in for quite a treat this fall.
