Dead or Alive 5 Bikini Footage Has Kasumi And Hitomi In Bunny Swimwear

By Ishaan . July 27, 2012 . 8:30am

Pre-ordering Dead or Alive 5 from GameStop or Amazon in North America will allow you to use bunny swimsuit costumes for some of the game’s female characters. This morning, Tecmo Koei shared footage of three of them in their bunny swimwear. You can watch this below:



GameStop pre-orders will have white “DOA Angels” swimsuits for Kasumi, Leifang and Hitomi (seen in the video), while Amazon will have black “DOA Devils” costumes for Ayane, Christie and Tina.


Dead or Alive 5 will be released on September 25th in North America. The game’s collector’s edition will include swimsuit costumes for every female character.

      My thought exactly.

    • YES! …YES!!!

  • XypherCode

    Babes in bunny suits? lol I’m likin’ this a lot :D
    Anyway can you change the voice language in this game like in DOAD?

  • Nitraion

    Damn it i hate shop’s exclusives i can’t get it ><

  • Brimfyre

    So are those damn furry DLC bikinis the only “sexy” in this game? Because I’ve never found girl in animal outfits sexy.

    The whole thing is pathetic because they went on and on about how
    this would be the “mature” DOA that wouldn’t use sex, but because of
    Ninja Gaiden failing so hard, and people complaining they threw in these
    things at the last second to make amends.

    Team Ninja needs to go back to square one and think, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

    There are PLENTY of things broken about Ninja Gaiden and DOA, but they didn’t seem to touch those things.

  • MrRobbyM

    Oh god. Those English voices. No thanks.

    The bunny bikinis are cool, I guess.

    • LynxAmali

       Doesn’t it have dual audio?

      I would assume it would considering the series had a tendency to have Japanese audio.

      • MrRobbyM

        I would assume so and hope to dear god that it does lol.

        • Darkrise

          I’m pretty sure they’ve said somewhere that there will be dual audio so no need to worry lol. 

          • Crimson_Cloud

             They had it so far so I see no reason for them not to be in it again.

    • Christopher Nunes

      Kasumi and Lei Fang sound alright to me, though Hitomi is going to get some getting use to. o_0

      I really like Kasumi’s voice, a mature and elegant but still a young-sounding voice that fits her (though I hoping for a more cuter voice for her, like her Japanese voice getting her to really sound like she’s 17 years old).

      • David García Abril

         Houko Kuwashima, Kasumi’s Japanese VA, sounds like she’s 17 years old already.

        Actually, that was the very reason why they kicked Sakura Tange after DOA2. Tange was a “cuter” voice that didn’t fit the character at all, so they used Kuwashima from DOA3 onward instead. And the character is much better with her voice.

        About her English VA, like I say above, in “Dimension” during cut scenes she was pretty good, but not so much during combat.

  • drproton

    I just preordered from Amazon. <3 Ayane

    • Closet_Ninja

       bro fist

    • LynxAmali

       Are you me?

  • zferolie

    I already ordered from Gamestop… but I really want that Christie outfit…

  • xavier axol

    hitomi or kasumi, hitomi or kasumi, hitomi or kasumi, hitomi or kasumi, hitomi or kasumi, Bunny swimwear!!. (head blows up) hint: is not the one you think.

    • Testsubject909


  • Blacker Baron, what are you doing here? lol

  • James Smith

    Ok I like the visual changes they tried to make with the girls, like the more detailed approach,  but not the way they actually ended up looking. The body, and faces. Like it all needs some polish.
    Maybe it’ll take a remake or re release for them to get it all right. Like with NG3 which will be remade for the Wii U. At least I hope they keep trying to improve it.
    Still  it’s a shame because they could simply try to get it right the first time but I guess they’re experimenting around  since they lost the old creative mind of the studio.

    • MrRobbyM

      I know what you mean. The game looks a bit rough around the edges but the actual fighting looks fun. I also like that they toned down the sexy but I think they toned it down a bit too much. These are the reasons why I won’t be paying full, new price for the game. I rarely do for a fighter anyways, but especially this. I will still pick it up new to support the devs after a decent price drop though.

      • Guest

        mostly frivolous nitpicking

        • MrRobbyM

          Not really. DoA has always been known for it’s rather sexy…outfits(?) but when you take away too much of what it’s known for, it loses it’s idenitiy. Not to say the game is bad, I think it looks like one of the most fun fighters since MvC3.

          • Guest


            There’s been KoF XIII, TTT2, Persona4Arena is coming out and now Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle was announced

          • MrRobbyM

            I know, I’m saying it looks like one of the most fighters since then, not the only one released.

          • SpecDotSign

            Marvel 3 is the most hype game out this fighting game generation. Next to KoF13. But Marvel takes it hands down.

      • James Smith

         Ok I was really talking about the character design, proportions details and that kind of things.
        The previous look was more simplistic, minimalist and perhaps over the top and looked very anime influenced.
        Now they look more realistic, with more detailed attributes and accuracy and such. Details to the faces, breast motions, hair design, skin, etc.
        Considering the improvements to technology over the years updating the visual style to take advantage of that seemed appropriate.
        But I don’t find the final look of some of the girls, and some details, right.
        They seem uncanny or not as attractive as with the previous style, but I don’t think it’s the new art direction’s fault but rather the lack of polish.
        I’d say give them more time and they could have nailed it right, art is a complicated thing after all.
        Nitpicking? Definitely.
        Frivolous? Depends who you’re asking. I can’t help noticing these details so minor details getting in the way of improvement aren’t frivolous to me.

        • Testsubject909

          In agreement, especially with my dear Hitomi.

          So many angles in which she just doesn’t seem… as appealing as she used to.

          • Christopher Nunes

            I agree.

            Hitomi looks good in other angles and some… not so much. They need more time to nail the art style better.

  • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

    Yes, the designs are cute! However, I really like the fighting mechanics.

    Got mine pre-ordered from Gamestop.

    • SpecDotSign

      Wow. You’re just about the only person who has commented on the fighting mechanics of this game. I swear, this game and P4Arena are going to make sales on voice actors and fan service alone.
      What is wrong with you people?!

      • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

        I agree with you…there is more to a game than voice actors and boobies.

        • SpecDotSign

          Well…let’s be honest here, everyone loves bewbs. But yes, I see what you mean. ;p

  • ZBaksh386

    the only voiced i liked was kasumi’s.

    kari walgrehn for the win.

  • Darkrise

    That was hot AND awesome! So getting this for my birthday. 

  • Guest

    Ew those voices…

    but those outfits…

    I just hope the game give you the option of selecting English or Japanese voices per character like SF IV, Tekken..

    •  Yeah, I don’t care whose voice I change so long as Zack’s ENG voice (aka the mothaf***in Blacker Baron) stays. And Rig and Bass.

    • Mildra

      since I usually have the voices muted in favor of certain playlists (usually all of Jedi Mind Tricks and Army of the Pharohs) when I play, the voices aren’t gonna matter much to me. But then again I tend to be a heretic with this sort of thing.

    • Asura

       SOOO much better voices than the Japanese counterpart which make your ears bleed on the spot.

      DoA is just ugh though, not touching that with a 30 foot pole.

  • RaikageV

    Leifang <3

  • Testsubject909


    I would like it but…

    There’s just something about Hitomi’s face and that figure that just doesn’t… gel together…

    It makes me sad because I’d otherwise enjoy this… But I will note, this is a bit of a step down if you ask me. Look at Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball or X2. Each girl had their own animal themed swimsuits, putting them all in the same outfit just generalizes them down.

    Bah… and yeah, to those wondering, no. This isn’t enough to drive me into pre-ordering this stuff.

  • Tyler Sedrick

    I will be changing the voices to Japanese for sure. with this I will have every dead or alive game made.

  • Bunny bunny bunny bunny bunny bunny bunny bunny! =^_^=

    No my ears aren’t broken lol, but I didn’t mind the voices that much. Can’t wait to get this when it comes out. Already pre-ordered here =^_^=

  • Tee Niitris

    Hitomi + Lei Fang = Cutegasm


  • Leave it to Zack to be somehow involved.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    T_T Why don’t they have more love for Kokoro there?T_T

    • Nitraion

      Wow hitomi really left out didin’t she ==”
      But i prefer hitomi in Bikini kimono though like aoi in VF5 XD

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        Aoi.^_^ My main in VF series.^_^

  • ENGLISH VOICES?!!! YAY! Another reason to put this game on my list, one note a couple of the voices seem different from the ones in Dimensions though, buuuut nonetheless epic video addting to favorites.^_^

    • David García Abril

       They sound the same to me…

  • Kitestwinblades

    Hilarious xD
    The outfits and Zack – totally natural.
    English Dubbed Voices – WHAT!?

  • sunK1D

    Are english voice overs a first for the DoA series? I have all of the console games and i’m pretty sure they’re all japanese only. Not sure about the PSP/DS versions.

    On a side note, i liked Hitomi and Leifang’s voice overs but Kasumi will take some getting used to >< not that it was bad, just kinda different. And where's Kokoro wth???

    • Testsubject909

      No, they aren’t.

      I don,t remember when it first happened but I know that DOAX2 has voice over options for English or Japanese.

      • David García Abril

         Actually, the PS2 version of DOA2 had English voice overs as an option. I’m not sure about the DreamCast version.

        Also, “DOA: Dimensions” also had the option. As a matter of fact, the actors will be same.

        I liked the English voices in “Dimensions” just fine in cut scenes, but not so much during combat. English voice actors don’t have a very long tradition in this kind of acting, after all.

  • Sardorim

    Those aren’t bunny suits, those are just bikini’s with bunny ears! 

  • But what happens if we don’t preorder the game, are we gettng without any bunny costume or what, because I’m buying the Collector’s Edition, then what’s gonna happen?
