A Peek At Dead or Alive 5’s Bunny Swimsuit Costumes

By Ishaan . June 28, 2012 . 11:15pm

In North America, pre-ordering Dead or Alive 5 from GameStop or Amazon will get you a set of in-game bunny swimsuit costumes for three female characters, depending on which retailer you place your order at. The Japanese equivalent of this announcement gives us a first look at these:



In the U.S., GameStop will have a “DOA Angels” set of white swimsuits for Kasumi, Leifang and Hitomi. Meanwhile, Amazon pre-orders will come with a “DOA Devils” set of black swimsuits for Christie, Tina and Ayane. In Japan, Tecmo Koei are doing things a little differently.


In Japan, first-print copies of Dead or Alive 5 will include a bunny swimsuit costume for both Kasumi and Ayane, but also for a third female character, which Japanese fans will get to decide on through a vote on the game’s official website.


Dead or Alive 5 will be released in North America on September 25th for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A collector’s edition version of the game will come with a hardcover art book, poster and soundtrack CD, all packaged in an embossed steel case for $80. Buying the collector’s edition will also get you swimsuits for every female character in the game.

    I’m glad that Tecmo decided to try to be more serious with DoA5 and cut down on the fanservice.


    • gaiahatergaia

      Stop hatin’.

      • Testsubject909

        He ain’t hatin, he just pointing out the obvious.

    • Suicunesol

      Whatchoo talk’n ’bout? Fanservice is srs bizness.

  • aoihana

    Uuuuah~ (●´□`)♡

    I’m loving these screenshots! So Dead or Alive 5 has yet to release, but it has managed to sway me with provoking images? Such is expected, I suppose.

    I assume these screenshots are taken directly using the new screenshot feature? I hope so, because that would mean I could create some very interesting scenes. Nice splashing effects, I can see it now~ (´ ▽`).。o♡

    I’m loving the costumes, but I suppose that’s obvious, isn’t it? I’m really liking Hitomi, but Ayane looks sexy, too! It’s a shame that Christie will be getting a black bikini, I would have liked a white one, but I guess it’s not too bad! It would make for some nice contrast, I think! ( ̄~ ̄;)

    I can’t wait! (♥‿♥✿)

    • xavier axol

      there’s something about hitomi and ayane that always brings me back for more doa. yeah i just can’t put my finger on (her- it!!!, yup nothing sexual about that!,definitely. ;-)
      i’ll take the swimsuits please!

      • Testsubject909

        I know what you mean. Hitomi’s my personal favorite.

        But this go around, I’ll be waiting first rather then diving in like I used to.

    • Testsubject909

      Oh hey Aoihana, bit off subject but you know they sell 1/6 Love Plus figurines right now on HLJ. Just felt like saying it since you love Love Plus so much.

      And why am I not surprised to see you enjoying this so much. Though that’s good fun.

      • aoihana

        Hey, thanks for the heads up! I’ll be sure to check it out! (◕‿◕✿)

  • MAO

    Already pre-ordered the Collector’s Edition. :3 I hope the third character is either Helena or Lei Fang.

  • Stranger On The Road

     I take it back, based on the images I saw so far, it would be nice to have Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 and Dead Or Alive Paradise 2 based on these character modules!

    sorry guys, but I am a lover not a fighter!

  • Kefkiroth

    Dangit… I wanted Kasumi and Ayane together for one of the US sets. ._. Japanese set on the other hand gets EXACTLY what I wanted (don’t care about who gets the third bunny suit). Then again, there’s always the collector’s edition… 

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    ………. wet,splashy……. BOOBIES!!!!

    YES YES YES!!!!!

  • Chaheezor

    Played an early build of the game at London MCM Expo and loved it.
    Now I heard they’re keep up with the sexy…I need this game.

  • Fanservice? What fanservice? In DoA there’s no such word, there are only natural expectations >: D

    • xavier axol

      now now, you are not going to tell me that nobody saw that coming. ;-)
      ohh what was that? i’ll take the swimsuit please!!

  • Shuryou

    Don’t you guys/girls always wear bunny ears with your swimming trunks/bikini? So incredibly fashionable and logical.

  • well its encouraging that they at least started off by showing how the game plays and the fan service comes about 3 months out from release date.

  • Tee Niitris

    As someone who is learning how to lighten up and have fun, I approve of this; it’s not hurting anybody.

    Though seriously, I do find it odd that Team Ninja would say that they were going to tone the sex theme down, and then go back to it anyway. Maybe it was fan backlash or something. :/

  • Syltique

    Looking good.  

  • Nitraion

    Tecmo:”i’m not gonna lose to soul calibur!!!”

    • Crimson_Cloud

      Meh, this game will probably outdo the sinking Soul Calibur franchise. I still mourn for the full price that I paid for fifth game. When you finish the overly dramatic story mode, there is nothing to do except for VS offline/online and character creation that you can use for… well VS mode. One of the rarest new gen fighters that is so empty on the content. No characters ending in arcade, no other gameplay modes (legendery mode is just a hard-ass arcade mode)  no extras to unlock. Why bother pushing time for few years to introduce new characters when you’re not gonna explain half of their roles. Not to mention old-fan favorites still missing. Kilik the Edge Master… *spits*

      *rages on*….
      Still play the good old SC2 and SC3.

      • Nitraion

        Lol i only comment in term of clothing i think SC3 is ultimate version of SC there is so many modes in that game ^^ 
        i only play SC4 on rental and i didn’t like it’s just same as SC3 except clothing *prevy* destruction and the modes got fewer on SC4 that’s weird i mean it is next gen game weird and SC5 is same as 4 and got fewer modes i hear D: wow… yes i stop playing SC after SC3

    Combining Bunny girl with swimsuits.

    What has science done!?

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Rather than Science……… it is JAPAN!!!!^^

  • Setsuna ♥

    Imagine if DOA5 made it to alot of major fighting game tournaments or even EVO2013, stream monsters would go crazy everytime they see one of these swimsuits chosen :p

  • The swimsuits are nice looking although I have to say that I’m liking the white outfits more. These pictures are funny because it looks less like they’re fighting and more that they’re just having fun lol =^_^=

  • Brimfyre


    Ayane in my favorite, but I think the other set of girls are better to look at.  Not a Tina or Christie fan myself.

    • Crimson_Cloud

       Ayane was always my main. Her face is down right gorgeous in this game. ^^

  • Abhishek Posooa

    I’ve got the feeling that most (male)players will hold the controller with only one hand,if you see what I mean ;)

  • Kitestwinblades

    So uh… are they gonna have these outfits at EVO2013?
    Can you imagine the commentators trying to announce over this? xD

  • Jesse Thompson

    Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, anyone? :3  I just recently 100%’d Kasumi, pole dance and all!  Working on Ayane now.  I’ve got DOA5 preordered at Gamestop with legendary and Amazon with regular, I figure I’ll cover my bases! (~.~)/  PS – I don’t give GS much of my business anymore.

  • Hoshi星

    Not gonna lie, those swimsuit costumes look awful. But I’m still getting the game.

  • Rey

    SO these are the bunny outfits that we are gonna be receiving for the preorder. I like it. Cant wait to play it with Kasumi.

  • zeta

     those boobs … always makes me lose in fighting games.

  • ZackEager

    I hope the swimsuits get dirty and have a transparency effect on them. Especially, since Team Ninja has been saying different costumes will have different perks ie. Seeing through Hitomi’s shirt and seeing her bra.

  • Testsubject909

    Ah. Wet bunny girls huh?

    I see what you did there Tecmo… And unfortunately I’m still not biting.

    You say one thing, then you do another, plus for some reason, to date, there’s always just a small something in each of your trailer, teasers and product that just makes me pause in whatever excitement I might have for it.

    It did it for Ninja Gaiden 3 the moment I saw that needless gush of blood in your first teaser trailer, as it felt just a tad bit… desperate to me. And since then I’ve been on the side of erring on caution.

    Well, time will tell. If the game’s good, guess that means I’ll be prying open my wallet again.

    Oh and, since it seems you’re going back on your words about no more fanservice. Could you guys make DOAX3?

    Edit: PS. Yes, I know the odds that anyone from Tecmo Koei would be here reading is slim to none, but hey.

    Those aren’t bunny suits… Those are just bikini girls wearing bunny ears. It’s a sad day indeed when no one knows what a bunny suit is supposed to look like. For shame.
