Dead or Alive 5 Collector’s Edition Swimsuits Revealed

By Ishaan . August 6, 2012 . 9:00am

Pre-ordering Dead or Alive 5 at GameStop or Amazon will get you white “angels” or black “devils” swimsuits for three of the game’s characters. However, if you want the entire set of “premium” swimsuits for the game’s full cast of female characters, you’ll need to buy the Dead or Alive 5 collector’s edition.


Dead or Alive 5 will be released in North America on September 25th and in Europe on September 28th. Tecmo Koei showed some of the exclusive collector’s edition swimsuits off this morning, and you can view them above and below:

    Gonna play this with one hand,if you see what I mean ;)

    • Hinataharem

      Why would you do that? That would make the game a lot harder to pla-…..oh…….ew!!!!

  • Obviously gearing up for DOAX3. Not that I’m complaining.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Bah, swimsuits are so boring. Would have preferred normal clothing but revealing.

    • Budgiecat

      I’m not complaining

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    At last some love for Kokoro.T_T I am filled with happiness here.^_^

  • XypherCode

    Aww yeah! :)) Those are some cool backgrounds/stages! :P

    • omeganeko

      hey you noticed too. I mean how are you suppose to concentrate on fighting?

    • Repede91

      Well said. People often forget that interactive stages are a DOA hallmark.

  • Hmm, I don’t actually like most of the swimsuits personally but what’s behind the characters looks pretty good.

    • KotaroInugami

      Their butts?

      • I deliberately avoided saying ‘behind them’ in case people thought I meant behind the swimming costumes. XD

  • omeganeko

    I just moved my ps3 into the family living room with the bigger t.v…..this is gonna make things awkward.

  • Colin Tosh

    These are from DOAX. Don’t ask me how I know.

  • Hoshi星

    Those swimsuits are too tame. Why?

    • Maybe the DLC ones will be less tame =)

  • Zonic505

    Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Fighting?

  • $17263204

    I thought there was two blondes in Dead or Alive. One was the one with the big hair. I don’t play the series. I wonder if she will be here.

    • Christopher Nunes

      I don’t recall them showing Helena yet. She and Tina have blonde hair.

      And it’s practially confirmed that all the characters from past DOA games (excluding boss-only characters, I believe) will return.

  • Welp, Gamestop it is =P

  • MrKappa

    This was pretty much DOA’s specialty but it seems Tekken did it better. :/

    • eilegz

      if muscular woman its what you like mr kappa

      • zferolie

         Muscular women are hot too. What’s wrong with that?

        • Daniel Morandi

           I like both just not too muscular please. Some Tekken’s women have men shoulders D:

    • Rick R

      I disagree. Tekken has quantity but the characters all look really odd, they don’t seem like they were designed with it in mind. 



  • Setsuna ♥

    I swear I’m buying this for the gameplay >.> WhoamIkiddinglol

    • Luna Kazemaru

       That joke is honestly getting stale now…

      • Crimson_Cloud

        Hey, at least he didn’t say that he is getting it for the plot. ^^’

        • I don’t know if there even is a plot this time around. They haven’t said a word about the game’s setting. It kind of feels almost like Dead or Alive: Dimensions at this point–a “best of” compilation with older stages and characters. 

          • Crimson_Cloud

            Oh, man Ishaan, don’t scare me. I REALLY hope that there is at least a picture or something at the end of arcade.

            But you know, that scene with Zack mistaking Sarah to be Tina, could that be a cutscene from the ”supposed” story mode…?

  • Voltech44

    Man, the DOA ladies sure are…confident.

    But come on, Tecmo Koei, don’t leave us hanging.  We’re all ready and waiting to see Bass’ swimsuit.  (Though I’d settle for his viking costume.)

  • Closet_Ninja

    now these are a lot sexier than those bunny things

  •  I remember the option to turn on bouncy boobs in DOA 2, as if the boobs where not all over the place allready, it looked like they would detach from the body.

  • Marc Chowdhury

    Please show HELENA in her white sea shell bikini. Calling it now. 

  • sunK1D

    Koko-chan takes it home!

  • kylehyde

    The wait for see Kokoro-chan in bikini (on this game of course)  was long but really worth it, thanks for the happy monday.

  • Angeru_Lito

    Well they’re not bad tasteless as some of the swimsuits in DOAX … still really bad incentive for an CE unless you’re into “that” aspect of the Dead or Alive games.

  • Crimson_Cloud

    Freaking Europe… let’s hope that this will be DLC. Gotta get that one for Ayane. 

  • Hours

    Call me when the add swimsuits for the guys. If Tekken, Virtua Fighter & Soul Calibur can do it, then the series that started the whole swimsuit concept should be able to as well.

    • XiaomuArisu

       Lets continue hoping…maybe they willl get suits.
      BTW Do we now how many costumes every characters has?

      • Jimmy

        Hooray, swimsuits for the males are finally available!!! : )

        • XiaomuArisu

          Fanservice now for Girls too!XD
          Yay for equallity!
          Enjoy it Girls!

  • Anime10121

    Would trade Tina for Lei Fang, please Amazon :( 

  • Tee Niitris

    Hitomi! <3

    Oh, the others look good too.

    Seriously, it upsets me that the theme of this game is to beat them senseless and win some fighting tournament.

  • Rasec46

    still not sure if i’ll get this since street fighter x tekken will come that month to the vita.
    And i’m still not sure if i’ll have more fun with this or tekken tag.
    i’m mostly a offline player and i liked previous dead or alive but never spent too much time with them.
    Tekken i never tried it xP

  • eilegz

    after this konami should revive rumble roses ^¬^

    • Testsubject909

      Definitely, going pass the cheesecake, it was a fun and entertaining wrestling game with memorable characters, a simple to pick up and utilize control scheme and a relatively cheesy storyline but it worked well within the concept of wrestling characters.

      Though it is kind of sad that you can argue that the PS2 graphics were better than the 360’s Rumble Roses XX. Then again, it was the early years for the 360 and there was an overabundance and overuse of … that term I forget that basically causes everything to shine needlessly…

  • God damn it, Kokoro just caught my heart ! <.<

  • Setsu Oh

    the day i watch a beach volley olympic match and compare it to DoA (whatever digit it will be by then) and SEE NO DIFFERENCE, that will be the day i ll be interested in swiming suits.
    why bother with that when they can’t even revolutionarise the fighting game visuals with a mucle flexer subengine?

    • Dantis


    • Because it’s largely an unnecessary graphic buff that’ll raise the costs for the development, and subsequently the customers?

  • Doctor Nebula

    I’ll just wait until they become store content.

  • oh boy yeah!!!!

  • Testsubject909

    I’ll wait till they announce DOAX3.

    Quite serious though. DOAXBV and DOAX2 are great relaxing go to non-commitment games to just burn some time and relax, plus the volleyball game can be great competitive vs play if you’ve got a buddy over.

    •  lol, I was about to say the same thing.  Actually the very first one was my favorite.  The 2nd made things too complex for it’s own good (the multi color jump pads and such) and the PSP one was lacking.  Hopefully they go back and remember what made the original so good.

  • Kitestwinblades

    This is going to be The most awkward thing to take home from Gamestop in a LONG time. The preorder bonus and box art… not to mention handing that code over with a straight face. Oh, I cant wait lol

    • Paolo Camacho

      well you could always have a bag with you hahaha, so I guess the swimsuits are only available if you buy the collector’s edition huh?

      • Kitestwinblades

        Lol! I guess I could XD  just the premium ones.  you can still get some of them for just preordering.

        • Paolo Camacho

          I really like the swimsuits want to complete them XD

  • ZBaksh386

    I think im in love.

  • Christopher Nunes

    Hitomi, Kokoro and Kasumi! <3
    The girls look great and I don't mind the swimsuits they picked for them.

    Man, I so wish DOA had a CaC mode to make your own character. I would make a self-insert version of myself… um, to get to meet the characters in the universe. Nothing wrong with that! ^.^

  • James Smith

    These look really nice, but it’s worth noting that most are designs from DOAX2 and previous games.
    And they used to release at least 2 swimsuits for each girl in all previous DOA fighting games, for free, for all versions, from all retailers.

    And I think they increased the bust size for most of the girls in these screenshots compared to the last ones released, some girls are back to their DOA4 size while other are actually bigger though all still noticeably saggier than prior to redesigns.

    Tecmo gives, Tecmo takes, and gives again? Tecmo works in mysterious ways.

  • Victor Bravo

    So are the bunny costumes in collecters addition too??

  • shion16

    Wet shirts battle!!

  • Paolo Camacho

    are the swimsuits only available in the collector’s edition?

    • Kelvin Knicks Dwl

      I think so, the pre orders comes with only the bunny swimsuits depending on where you buy the game :(
      hopefully they release the swimsuits as dlc.

      • Paolo Camacho

        yea I hope so too I want the bunny costumes too hahaha
