Man, Dead Or Alive 5 Was THIS Close To Having A Completely Everyday Clothing Pack

By Eugene . December 3, 2013 . 2:03pm


I was kinda rooting for it actually. After all, the first half of Tecmo Koei’s Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate everyday plains clothes pack was calm, tame, nothing that screamed what its biggest criticizers proclaim is wrong with a game more about the sex appeal than the fighting. And this second pack almost, ALMOST, completed the circuit.


Then I saw Rachel’s outfit. *squints* Ah well. *Tosses the specially made “days Till Dead or Alive is known more for fighting than something else” counter out the window*


The latest pack has outfits for Rachel, Kasumi, Kokoro, Lisa, Christine, Rig, Gen Fu, Brad Wong, Ein and Bayman. Each will run you 200 yen ($2) or 1,100 for the lot and they’re available from today.


Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate is out now for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

  • Yan Zhao

    Dat Gen Fu swag.

  • kylehyde

    Actually Christie dress is pretty nice, it give her sweet and cute look. But this rose has her thorns and are very spikey

  • malek86

    Someone needs to make a Ryo Hazuki costume for Jann Lee.

    • pressstart

      That would belong to Akira ;)

      • doubleO7

        HELLZ. YEAH. As a huge Shenmue fan I’d pay whatever the heck they wanted for Shenmue DLC costumes :3

        • Max

          Oh my God that would be a great idea!

          P.S. Hey, you love Big O and Shenmue and play DOA? Man, you’re awesome!

          • doubleO7

            Thank you for the compliment! I have always gravitated towards the more niche, under-most-people’s-radar games and anime, and those 3 are series that really deserve more attention.

  • James Reilly

    The Rachel one threw you off? You would think think the two Steampunk outfits from the last pack would have done it already. In any case this is probably the most decent DoA costume pack (no bikinis, holiday season themed, school, etc etc etc) TN put out.

  • CptPokerface

    Doesn’t look that over the top to me. It’s sexy but..functional. I’ve seen women dress something like that irl.

    The casual wear looks pretty good for the most part. I think Rig’s should have looked more street/urban. He looks a bit silly.

    • Luke Blackwood

      Execpt for the fact that, you know, her shirt is TOTALLY see-through. Her bra and her boobs are totally visible. Not the kind of outfit a woman would wear in a socially acceptable meeting.

      If the shirt wasn’t totally see-through as hers is, it would be a perfectly common shirt and thus, outfit.

      • I’m actually surprised that there’s some people who have never seen a woman wear a sheer shirt outside…? lol, I guess it probably really does depend on where you live, actually… while it’s not an ordinary sighting, it’s not exactly uncommon either to see that while spending some time at a big mall around here.

      • Kumiko Akimoto

        I’ve seen women where see through shirts like that before, do you even high fashion?

        • link me a pic of someone wearing the tithole sheer shirt in public please

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            Do celebrities and selfies count because i can’t take pictures of people i see in the street, well not from my memory anyways.

          • Max

            Celebrities who walk in red carpet don’t really count IMO

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            Celebrities outside in public?

      • Shippoyasha

        Well casual wear is not formal wear though.

      • Suicunesol

        Who says casual clothing needs to be socially acceptable? :P

        • Max

          Personally, I do. And many others. I guess it’s cultural.

          By the way, is it even available in the US or only Japan?

  • Shippoyasha

    I like it. I mean this isn’t radically different from how some girls will wear casual clothing in the real world. Casual doesn’t have to be purely un sexy. Also, this is pretty reserved for Rachel considering she probably considers her demon hunting leotard attire as her normal attire in canon.

    And I don’t get the way sexiness and action can’t co exist. That is the whole charm of this series.

    • Cody

      Rachel can wear whatever she wants and I’ll like it.

  • DarthSithZero

    Just make a fashion show TECMO

  • Warboss Aohd

    some of those don’t look ‘everyday’ but it is preferable to some of the outfits.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Dat delicious Kasumi cleavage

  • fairysun

    I can’t believe Kokoro wears something( with a slit that show most of her thigh) like that on daily basis. I thought she’s more like a conventional girl.

    • Her Kimono even shows quite a bit of leg too, though.

    • ThirdChildZKI

      I’m actually pretty amused by their ideas of her “normal” clothing across all her costumes. Not complaining at all, mind you. Just amused.

      Also, Kasumi’s Y/Triangle variation: Kasumi + striped panties defeats the terrorists.

  • DragKudo

    I don’t understand what wrong with Rachel’s outfit. It looks pretty normal to me.

    • Yeah, I’ve actually seen quite a few ladies with shear tops in the summer here in Canada… and this is Rachel, going by her usual style I think she’s someone that’d feel just fine in clothing like that. I actually remember that shear tops were really picking up in fashion a while back. Maybe not in the US?

      But Christie’s and Lisa’s dresses, as nice as they are, seem like they’ve been taken out of Kasumi’s wardrobe, lol. But there have been more blatant instances of characters “borrowing” out of another character’s wardrobe before in this game… if I have any gripe with how they’re handling the costumes, it’d be that.

      • Death Metal

        Exactly. I think Christie wouldn’t really wear such a cute/feminine dress like that, based on her personality. That’s not to say the piece isn’t nice; it is, quite.

        I guess Lisa would dress something like that, so it did sit OK with me.

        Also, Rachel’s pretty OK with me as well. I’m pretty sure a lot of women dress like that to go out at night, I’ve seen plenty where I live. Obviously Eugene is just joining in the bandwagon that mocks DOA for having attractive models, etc.

    • It’s a collared shirt with a massive hole in the chest. It’s not dominatrix wear but it’s not casual. If you saw this irl on a fat chick, you would raise a fuss.

      • DragKudo

        I’ve seen chubby girls wear something like this and they usually can pull it off. This is casual where i live.

  • As much as I love more costumes for female characters, I’m just as thrilled to see more for the dudes, especially ones with more thought put into them like these ones. I just wish they’d look back to the old games for some more costume ideas though… Ryu needs his DOA:D tux back and the DOA3 ending costume! Or how about Hitomi’s DOA4 ending costume? At least it was cool to see them bring back one of the costumes from Lei Fang’s old ending (forgot if it was DOA3 or DOA4).

    • ALfromHELLSING

      Why do I have this feeling that Ryu will still be wearing mask with his casual costume. Team Ninja is turning him into Kakashi. Hayabusa always had unmasked costumes since the first DOA now all of his costumes have mask. I don’t get that.

  • sunK1D

    Much ado over nothing from the article author.

  • Yuuki

    Soo many costumes…so little money….T_T


    I’m so loving these and it’s awesome that guys are now getting some attention too. Great job Team Ninja.
    All my main & favorite characters got their casual clothes except Ryu Hayabusa. Onegai Team Ninja no mask for his casual costume. Onegai.

    • Death Metal

      I’m also waiting to see what they give Hayabusa as a casual costume. In fact I’m expecting that it is another sort of ninja attire, but I didn’t want that. I wish they gave him something really casual, like a shirt and jeans (something like Cody from Final Fight). That would be cool and show another side of him.

  • Suicunesol

    Gen Fu’s is the best. I don’t care what anyone says.

    All he needs is a cane and the package is complete!

    • DragKudo

      Reminds of Ip man a little. Bout whoop ass with style

  • Servant BerserCAR

    Bayman = mercenary by day, sexual offender at night.

  • TrannyMagic

    this set looks really good.

  • Göran Isacson

    Ha ha, man Brad in tacky hawaii-shirt fits him, but Rig… man all I think when I look at Rig is “dude what are you wearing”. Also I see that Ein/Hayate (I think it’s Ein?) remains DOA’s manservice character no 1. Painter uniform or whatever it is… almost as silly as the see-through shirt of Rachels.

    Also, Bayman in a dirty old man coat. I know he’s NOT a dirty old man, but one look at that outfit and it’s all I can think.

    I misread the title as “THIS close to a clothing pack EVERY DAY”
