Dead or Alive 5’s Free Zack Island Stage Takes DOA Back To The Beach [Update]

By Ishaan . January 22, 2013 . 8:30am

Dead or Alive 5’s version 1.03 patch is out this week, along with a new free DLC stage called Zack Island. Like the other stages in Dead or Alive 5, this one has environmental hazards… like coconuts dropping onto your head and a “slip zone” near the water, which make you more vulnerable to lower body attacks. Check the stage out in this trailer:



The version 1.03 patch for Dead or Alive 5 will be released for PlayStation 3 today and for Xbox 360 next week. You can find a list of patch notes and patch release dates for North America and Europe in this report.

  • I hope other kinds of coconuts start dropping into my head, if you know what I mean…

        Give ’em a twist, a flick o’ the wrist,

    “Environmental hazards… like coconuts dropping onto your head”
    These aren’t the only coconuts players may be focusing on…

    Hell yeah! That classic DOA music! The music didn’t bother me in DOA5, but I liked the music in the previous games more.
    I also noticed how there wasn’t a beach stage before. I like them overall as stage. Nice environment, sunny and it makes me feel kind of cozy.

    A DLC swimsuits for the guys, anyone else agree?

    • Well it would be considered sexist to have the women only wearing hot swimsuit, so I guess having guys wearing hot swimsuit (Speedo??) might make the female audience forget DOA notoriousness when it comes to women.

      • Just don’t bring male “bouncing”.

        • Well it would apppeal to girls and they won’t bitch about boob jiggling if we add “bouncing”.

  • Tee Niitris

    Surprised Ayane wasn’t in it…
    Too busy handling business in Ninja Gaiden? :P
    She should really relax some.

  • Nitraion

    First time i see a fighting game that bring a new stage is such like a big deal….
    It really bring the game alive again
