Dead Or Alive 5 Plus Supports Cross Play And Cross System Costume DLC

By Spencer . January 16, 2013 . 1:47am

paraDead or Alive 5 has a bunch of costumes already and the good news is all of that PS3 downloadable content will work with the Vita version, Dead or Alive 5. Famitsu confirmed Dead or Alive 5 Plus supports the cross goods feature which makes content purchased from the PlayStation Store compatible with both systems.


That means the Paradise costumes (pictured) included with first print copies of Dead or Alive 5 Plus will be enabled on the PS3 version and you can use all of those Santa costumes on the Vita.


Dead or Alive 5 Plus also supports cross saves so you can continue the story mode on the go and cross play. Yeah, you can challenge PS3 gamers with the Vita version. An icon will let online players know if you’re playing on a console (controller icon) or Vita (Vita icon).


Dead or Alive 5 also has a beach stage called Zack Island. Ah, those Paradise costumes make much more sense now…

    Geil DOA action on the Uban in morgen on vita instead of 3ds sehr geil

  • Elvick

    Looking forward to this. :D

  • Romangelo

    how about cross buy? it’s the exact same game on both system, why do I need to buy it twice?

    • Elvick

      Developing games isn’t free.

    • Xerain

      IIRC there was a previous article that stated Japan was getting a limited edition Cross Buy bundle.

    • Speedo Redempteur

      Because that’s how other games do it ( MVCS3, street x tekken )
      i welcome no need to purchase dlc twice …

    • psycho_bandaid

      I don’t think you need to buy it twice. I think the Paradise DLC will be available for purchase at some point. Its just a nice option for those who want it on the go as well.

    • Jesse Thompson

      Exactly Romangelo, why in the world should we pay for the exact same game. This was their intention from the release of the PS3 game and they should make it available for both Vita and PS3 when you purchase it. There is no new “developing” for the PS Vita system. It’s the exact, same…game. Watching what they’ve been doing and the cost of all the “DLC costumes” has made me stop purchasing them (the DLC) and I have no intention of picking up the PS Vita game either… Honestly, they’re getting worse than Square Enix now…

      • It is NOT the exact same game. Touch battles! XD

      • eilegz

        japanese companies imitation western dlc policies its so bad…. yeah im looking at you capcom, koei tecmo and square enix.

      • Elvick

        It is not the same game. The PS Vita is not as powerful as the PS3. That’s why games like SFxT and UMvC3 have less going on in the backgrounds and take more time to develop. Because they have to chip away at the game until it’ll run well on Vita.

        You have some skewed view of what the Vita is capable of.

        It’s not 3rd parties job to push cross buy anyway. That only takes away sales from 3rd parties and pushes the Vita onto consumers. Pushing the Vita to consumers is Sony’s job. Not Tecmo Koei, or any other third party.

        Be happy they have cross good DLC. They don’t owe consumers that either.

        No where when people bought the PS3 version of DoA5 did it say that you were also buying a Vita version. Same applies to the DLC.

        You’re not entitled to anything.

        • Jesse Thompson

          “You’re not entitled to anything.” – You sir, are very funny indeed. Tell me, what is the total price of the original DoA5:CE plus all the additional DLC costumes to date? If you’re up for it. And let’s say the consumer was not intelligent enough to purchase the “bundle” packs of the costumes, but instead bought each one individually. (because let’s face it, the majority of the unwashed masses now are…special)

          • Elvick

            I fail to see how that has anything to do with my argument, or how it addresses the fact that you are in *FACT* not entitled to anything from 3rd parties.

            You got exactly what you paid for. A PS3 game and DLC (if someone opted to buy some). You are not entitled to anything else from them.

            That’s a fact and you simply can’t argue it. I understand WANTING it, but you are not entitled to it and companies are certainly not required to do it.

            Just be happy with what they do give us. Cross Good DLC is great. They didn’t HAVE to do that either, but they did.

        They’re different games because they’re on different systems. The core game is the same, but the hardware to run them on is different.

  • gamefreak86

    Excellent news. Now limited edition details and price please.

  • Fuck yea, the mind boggles what Team Ninja will concoct on Vita once they’re given the opportunity to build a game from scratch.

  • DarthSithZero

    Damn Ninja Gaiden & this needs to come fast my vita is dying to try both

  • Oltheros

    All that jiggle on my vita.
