Dead Or Alive 5 Gets In The Holiday Spirit With Santa Suits

By Spencer . December 11, 2012 . 12:49am

Tecmo Koei’s sixth Dead or Alive 5 costume pack is all about the holidays and gives twelve characters Santa suits.


Santa Pack #1: Leifang, Hitomi, and Kasumi

Santa Pack #2: Tina, Christie, and Ayane

Santa Pack #3: Hayabusa, Hayate, Jann Lee, Bass, Bayman, and Akira (!?)

Unfortunately, Tecmo Koei didn’t send any pictures of Akira from Virtual Figher in a Santa costume. That’s what I really want to see! Each pack is 300 yen or 240 Microsoft Points ($3). At that price, the all guys pack seems like a better value per outfit. You can also get all of the Santa suits for 800 yen or 640 Microsoft Points ($8). The Santa suits will be released on Xbox Live today and PlayStation Network this week (the exact time depends on your region).

  • Christian Wright

    this should be free……

    • Detrimont

      as a christmas present, but only if you get it on december 25th

      • Christian Wright

        that would’ve been nice!

      • KyoyaHibari

        Couldn’t agree more.

    • Rohan Viajar

      question: (not trying to anger you or demean you) but why should this be free?

      • Josephl64

        well their competition Tekken, has them for free if you really want to argue that point

      • Christian Wright

        they’re christmas outifts. no actual thought behind these. i also don’t believe in nickel and diming people. and besides, some of the costumes that were offered previously were unlockable in older titles :/

      • Sesshomaru

        It’s the same thing repeated for everyone by the look of it. They’re stingy and charging for it.

    • Symbol de Au

      You think Santa comes for free!? How old are you?

      • Christian Wright

        you don’t necessarily have to buy gifts. you can make them :)

  • z_merquise

    I was expecting a more ‘sexier’ Santa costume but this is fine to me. And good thing the guys get some love too.

    You can’t say no to Ninja Santa.

    • omeganeko

      I love ninja Santa he got me a DVD box set last year……..but knocked out my family that was still up.

  • Santa pack #1 for the win. That’s all I want from Team Ninja this Christmas.

  • I’m disappointed in these costumes in honesty. They’re lazy. I don’t mind that they aren’t free for Christmas as there’s quite a few of them. But it would be nice if you were getting some variety for your money.

    At the very least the girls should have had differing designs if they must all be dressed as a sexy santa. Something more fitting for their styles would have been nice. Such as perhaps a hooded romper or some with shorts and a coat instead.

    And what about the missing characters? Will they get a pack too? Would be nice to see Eliot as an elf, or Zack as a reindeer or perhaps Helena with an elegant dress with a snowman design to it. It’s a shame more thought and work hasn’t gone I to them, rather than just what looks like a character swapped skin.

  • Arrei

    Wait, so all of the girls get the same suit, yet they’re split into two packs you have to buy separately?

    No thanks.

    • raymk

      Yep no thanks, although I might cave for pack 2 if its cheap enough because I want all of tina costumes all of them!1

    • Elvick

      I know right.

      It’s basically buying the same thing multiple times. It should just be a universal costume for all of them.

  • DarthSithZero

    I was thinking in something like this for the girls

    • ZBaksh386

      that might be too much.

      • DarthSithZero

        I know but looks way batter than what Team Ninja is offering

  • Göran Isacson

    Santa ninja, kind of fun, and Santa Bass is good and glorious and right… but paying three times for two costumes? Nnnot sure I’m into that kinda deal.

  • “At that price, the all guys pack seems like a better value per outfit.”

    Tecmo Koei knows it’s target audience very well :P they know that they’re willing to spend more money on the Xmas outfits for the in-game girls instead, ahah.

  • Shadowman

    The Santa Clause ninja Hayabusa is pretty awesome.

  • Mike Pureka

    Masked Hayabusa Santa is pretty awesome, the rest of these are forgettable.

  • Alex Cattaneo

    This should be free,everyone that buys this are gonne cry when they anounce the dead or alive GOTY edtion for 39,99 and all the dlc packs.

  • Honestly, I’m kinda laughing at Ryu in a Santa outfit. That’s pretty funny.

  • Hayabusa looks like a boss, seriously awesome outfit.

  • KyoyaHibari

    Unbraided, long hair Lefang o.O that’s a selling point for one.

  • The DOA5 costumes suck, period… Why don’t they care…
