    I just want to know if this has dual-audio. I still bought NGS2+ on the Vita… but the Japanese version has both English/Japanese audio and also has English text. Though no gore. I suppose licensing issues or something like that…
    I hope a demo will come here too. Also Apparently there’s going to be a Vol. 2 of the OST. I didn’t enjoy the music on with DOA5, maybe because vocals aren’t really my thing and I heard some of the classic themes in the previous trailer.

      I want to know this as well. I’m crossing my fingers that it will due to Tecmo trying so hard to keep the PS3 and Vita versions the same.

        It’s confirmed… There will be dual audio in the options, TECMO confirmed themselves.
        Quote from Their FB comment “The JP audio is in (also due to cross play too) the team has managed to fit them into cartridge”

  • Cool, like Soul Sacrifice :)

    …..guessing this will be a Japanese only demo >_>

    Oh well, I was buying the game day one anyway

    I guess this is good news… They’re probably confident that DoA5+ will pan out better than NGS2+. Better release a demo than not to and risk the game flopping out of the gate due to S2+ stigma.

      Those were my exact thoughts.
      I’m glad to see this, since it means that they’re sure that the game won’t disappoint… or at least that it won’t be a mess like NGS2+…
