    Finally, current-gen jiggle physics.
    Extreme Volleyball next please.

  • Armageddon

    I bet they will be a lot hotter with next-gen graphics, can’t wait ^W^

    My body is [email protected] for some Full HD PLOT.

  • Teepo 64

    Am I the only person cool with these re-releases? I’m really also happy about the Saints Row IV re-release! :)

    • Anime10121

      Since I never played SRIV, I might even buy it at the price they’re offering it at!

  • Jey freaking god.

    First Nintendo being a cheap *** cash grabbers with the announcement of the “new” 3ds and now Team ninja AGAIN shamelessly making a new DOA5 rehash.. yeah, so much for DOA5 Ultimate.

    Are people REALLY ok with this or am i the only sane gamer left here

    • John Hayabusa

      So DOA5 is becoming the new SFIV. If DOA5 is going to come to PC (which I am still hoping for), I would buy it in an instant. I have three versions of DOA5 already (vanilla, +, and Ultimate). I have a PS4 but I am contemplating about buying this version.

    • antithesis

      You don’t have to buy the re-release/goty? of DoA5. If you have the game already, then what’s their to complain about? And for those who don’t, then they will have one more reason to get the game.

      As for the new 3DS, that is BS. But Nintendo knows that people will buy it. Consumers proved especially Nintendo diehard will buy it (I already know a few people who got a few 3ds/xl lying around).

      • HarakiriKami

        What would you have them do? Make a new handheld that’d would need to be replaced in 2-3 years ?

        People need to be buying hardware

    • Welcome to Big Company Gaming 2014, where Nostalgia is Everything and re-releases of HD versions of remakes of reboots are Game of the Year, Every Year. It’s the only way to stay afloat these days, if you’re making big games.

    • Jadfish

      well “Team Ninja” and “shameless” go together fairly well, so I don’t see why you are so surprised.
      People who like DOA are probably fine with it, others are probably hyped for a current gen version of it (I am actually a little interested thanks to the current fighting game drought on my PS4)

  • Atmey

    As long as I don’t have to buy all the DLC again….

  • Rawindra

    As in Complete Edition?

    • Stephen Mc Devitt

      You wish! This is Team Ninja we’re talking about. Maybe all the DLC characters but not the costumes.

      • Rawindra

        But it looks like it to me

  • Anime10121

    Long as it comes with all the DLC characters I’ll buy it… I was REALLY eying Ultimate something fierce the other day when I saw it on sale for 22 bucks…. (though I rarely buy the same game twice, i did it for Super SFIV and I’ll do it for DoA5)

  • Kalis Konig

    So glad I did not buy Ultimate or more then one DLC pack. Knew this was coming. Knowing these guys, this game won’t include the costumes and will just have all of the DLC characters though.

  • Zangetsu777

    Tecmo Koei is becoming more & more like Capcom with all these Remakes & Unnecessary DLC Packs…………..

    • guest131925

      They are basically using the same business model as Capcom is using, including the tournament supports and star hypes, but I’m pretty sure Capcom has exactly no patents with this Tennis model.

  • NyaBoy

    I dont think they will include 500$ DLC in it but at last make Marie,Phase 4 and Nyo free.

    • Anime10121

      Hopefully at the very least, it includes more dlc than Ultimate had (even though it included quite a bit), they’ve produced a helluva lot more content since then …

  • Ric Vazquez

    Boob physics day 1 buy

  • Josef217

    our dlc better carry over…..

    • British_Otaku

      Even if they did, they would design more sets of DLC worth hundreds of dollars including stuff you may have liked from older DOA games.

      Poor value is incoming.

      • Black Heaven

        Doesn’t matter to the buyers if there will be more (they buy everything XD). But it does matter that people can still carry over their hefty wardrobe onto the next game. At least KoeiTecmo do us justice.

        I do remember carry overs are possible. In my experience, Jill Valentine and Shuma Gorath did carry over from MvC3 to UMvC3, and I think BlazBlue Continuum Shift did too (can’t confirm though). It’s a bit trickier now that it’s on the another console but, at least if it’s the same account they’ll come up with something. Let’s hope for the best.

    • Arrngrim

      Sad to say, it won’t. They will money grab the hell out of everyone again on the PS4/Xbone.

    • doubleO7

      It’ll depend on how much of it they include on-disc. If they include all thats out at the time of release, then theres no problem. But otherwise, yeah, they need to let people carry that over somehow.

    • Christopher Nunes

      I barely got the DLC for DOA5U due to the absurd prices for them, I mean I like have extra costumes to customize my characters but I’m not THAT crazy! I could use that money for food and other supplies I need.

      I’ll just keep the PS3 version I have, I bought the first version and now the Ultimate version. No way I’m spending ANOTHER $40 – 60 for the same game on another system. I would love to play it on my PS4, but money is tight so I can’t.

      PS: Your Avatar, who is that and where is she from?

  • Siery

    Make a Vita port ffs…
    Sure I have the normal DOA5+, but an updated version for VIta would be nice.

    • AlphaSixNine

      I’d be happy if they just let all the Ultimate DLC available for Plus >.>

    • Malon

      DoA5+ is completely outdated, sadly.
      I would buy an hypothetical DoA5U+ in a heartbeat.

  • malek86

    Depending on the price and content, this might not be worth it…

    Then again, I guess they are biding their time until DOA6.

  • Thatguy

    Well, i am one of people, who never played any of DOA5 games, so i’ll grab PS4 version

  • aizen310

    Can I haz PC port, pritty plz? Kinda tired of MK and SF4.
    …yes, port begging as shamefully as possible

    • Woot Woot

      Eh there’s KOF13, New Guilty Gear and a bunch of other stuff

      • aizen310

        New Guilty Gear on PC? LOL! Where, if may I ask?
        KoFXIII: well, that’s one.
        bunch of other stuff: … like what?

        • Jadfish

          I introduced a lot of people at my university to fighting games through this. It’s also incredibly good as a drinking game.
          You’ll be surprised how fast people learn to be competetively viable in this game, and I have a friend who took it a step further and got into SFIV

          • aizen310

            LOL What is this? :D
            Kung Pao? S-Kill? Uncle Sensei?!

            Thanks… I need to know the fighters behind these names, so I might it out later :)

          • Jadfish

            Dive = Yang (SF)
            Kick = Yun (SF)
            Kung Pao = Kung Lao (MK)
            Uncle Sensei = I don’t know
            Stream = Stream Monsters on Twitch
            Dr.Shoals = Doctor Doom (MvsC3)
            S.Kill = Seth Killian (the man, the legend)
            Markman = Markman (Madcatz employee)
            TheBazz = Street Fighter II rejected design (SF)
            Kenny = kid that died before the game came out.
            Redacted = I don’t know
            Mr.N = Marn (infamous player)

        • Matty

          Hopefully the Tekken 7 stuff is real..

          PC fighting fans atleast are still the king of doujin and poverty: Akatsuki, Ougon, Vanguard Princess, Shin Koihime, Melty Blood, and many many more

          • aizen310

            >mentioned Melty Blood

            I wholeheartedly approve.

    • John Hayabusa

      And do not forget Tekken too, and Neptunia.

    • Jadfish

      you are on a PC bro, you have INFINITE access to porn

      • KingGunblader

        I lol’d way too hard at this.

      • aizen310

        Well… I can’t argue with that :D

        Truth is, I have a PS3, but I don’t like the idea of not able to get the most ultimate version of DoA5. DLCs and jiggle physics aside, I love this game’s mechanic to death.

        Also Kasumi in [email protected] I want a world where everyone can freely experience that magnificence. lol

    • PreyMantis

      At least it isn’t the Wii U.

    • Matty

      OH god we need this on PC… think of the mods. THINK OF THE MODS!

      • aizen310

        Mods? XD
        Nude patch on day one :D

  • triablos

    Are these genuinely good fighting games or just a bouncefest?

    • HarakiriKami

      Top class.

      • Black Heaven

        On both accounts. :D

    • doubleO7

      Yes, under those jiggle physics and bikini DLC is a very, very good fighting game. I’m a big fighting game fan, I play tons of stuff, but DOA is by far my favorite.

    • MasterScrub

      DOA5 is, by all means, a legit fighter. It’s just a legit fighter that knows how to appease it’s target audience at the same time.

    • sakanaとkoeda

      I concur with MasterScrub. It’s the first fighter I’ve played that has made me realize, “If I’m gonna have people wailing on each other, they might as well be beautiful to stare at.” (beauty is relative and etc >_>)

    • EinMugenTenshin

      Best fighting games out there to date.



    • HarakiriKami

      One Piece doesnt have that many characters

      • DaiRaiOh

        They actually have that many named and unique characters at this point to be honest.

  • Monterossa

    PC version will be awesome!!

  • tturtlejosh

    Then we will get an enhanced version called Dead or Alive 5: K.O.

  • Intriguing. Will there be DoA 5: Ultra Giga Epic Finale?

  • British_Otaku

    My younger brother is content with Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate Core Fighters since he got Jann Lee (the only character he is really attached too – dem Bruce Lee clones) for free. It may have been possible that I buy the full game for the Wii U if it was there as I have that system, but I’m content with what we have for now.

    Never liked the “tons of retail installments with missing content” fighting game release model and DOA takes that to a whole new level this generation.

  • Black Heaven

    I am noticing a trend here… is it REALLY the “Last Round”?

    Well, I had a feeling they’d do this. Dat next-gen might be too appealing to pass for dem gals.

    I just got the first one, didn’t get the Plus, Ultimate, or Core. I guess this one might not be so regrettable I hope, and it’s on PS4! Good thing I didn’t spend *too much* on the costumes. Can they throw in some free ones there too? :)

  • KazukiNanbu

    guess i have to buy a ps4 for the “complete edition” of DOA 5…..i hope this is the complete edition of DOA 5

  • Somebodyissilent

    If it’s a port of the last game it better have all the DLC.

    • James Reilly

      Yeah let’s slap the people who bought the hundreds of dollars worth of DLC lol. Nah it will probably be like Ultimate where some DLC is built in while others you have to pay.

      • Somebodyissilent

        It makes me sad to think that someone, somewhere has brought all the DLC for this game.

        • Bob Slim

          Im 1 of those sad people dieing inside

          • Somebodyissilent

            I’m sorry for your loss.

  • Arrngrim

    Last Round?! Hahaha, I’ll believe it’s the last when the company files for bankruptcy and fades away…

    • Justin Graham

      Or until they announce DOA6.

  • Kyosuke Yoshino

    Uh… I’m not interested in this any more.
    Why not just announce DOA6?

    • Justin Graham

      Because enough content has been released for the game since DOA5U that a final revision that includes that content and some further balance tweaks before a proper DOA6 makes sense.

    • John Hayabusa

      They are probably saving that along with NG4 for the Tokyo Game Show 2014 which is less than a month away.

      • EinMugenTenshin

        I hope you are right. A proper next gen game from scratch would beat out some HD polishing (though that is not bad, by all means, but the quality can only go so high based off a PS3/360 framework).

    • subsamuel01

      New games cost a ton of money to make.

  • sakanaとkoeda

    Et tu KT? Wait…
    So when’s next gen again?

  • Ty Austin

    As a gamer who primarily plays fighting games, I’m glad to see this going to next gen consoles. I was concerned I would have to dust off the old 360/ps3 if I was ever going to play it again.

    A new retail release also encourages new people to pick up and try it, making the online more enjoyable since 1. There will be more people online and 2. Online
    Will be less of a shark tank with newer players populating the lobbies.

    Besides, it’s not like this is the first company who did a seperate release for next gen consoles. Last of us, anyone?

    • aoihana

      Personally, I’m all for a next gen Dead or Alive, even if it’s a port.

      I think the gripe with some fans is that Dead or Alive 5 has already seen a revision on the previous gen, and is getting another on next gen.

      Essentially, fans will need to invest in yet another iteration if they want the best possible experience, complete with all the pricey DLC that comes with the territory.

      It’s similar to how some fans of the Street Fighter series complain about the numerous revisions Street Fighter IV has already seen.

      • Ty Austin

        Absolutely, people are upset over what fighting games have been doing for years.

        Graphics wise, this will be the definitive version. I hadn’t considered anything else until you brought it up. But now i’m a bit concerned that Team Ninja will apply balance updates to the PS4/XB1 versions and leave the old ones in the dust. I’m thinking this isn’t the case since it starts from the Arcade first and spreads to consoles.

        Either way, it’s going to fragment the online community even more, which is kind of a bummer.

  • AlphaSixNine

    Dunno about you guys… But I’m excited. lol

  • Tom_Phoenix

    A DoA5 re-release…you know what that means…..MORE DLC!!!

    • Digidyne017

      And hopefully more new characters…only in bikinis…

  • Guy Wesley

    Welp, it’s a good thing I traded my PS3. Now I can hopefully ask for a PS4 and get this when it comes out, hopefully.
    I wonder how their going to do this this time around?

  • Dave Cain

    Cross play with the PS3 DOA5? We need the community to be together!

    Also, my fourth time buying this and is still excited, lol

  • TheManWithPants

    Cool! I hope it comes with all of the current DOA5U DLC included. That’d be great.

    • Skode

      It will be the ONLY way im buying this. I invested in the game… twice and even threw some coin at them for outfits but i aint returning to the series now ive fully migrated to the Xbox One if it means starting from scratch again. In fact even if the DLC is cross platform i will still probably only get it if all costumes and characters are added in this final version of it.

  • John Hayabusa

    I will not be surprised if Ninja Gaiden III gets ported too, even though it is unlikely due to it being a mess.

    • Brion Valkerion

      Can’t imagine it would then again who knows. Not surprised this did though, the Arcade version is nice upgrade visually and the current gen PS4 and One can handle the upgrades made there.

    • doubleO7

      I don’t know how likely that is. They’re already working on a new NG.

    • subsamuel01

      Dead or Alive makes sense, there’s so much DLC for that game. Porting it to the PS4 and putting all that DLC together is a worth while package. NG3 was a mess, I think they should just focus on the next installment.

    • British_Otaku

      The original NG got rereleased a lot as Black, Sigma and Sigma +.
      Same happened to NG2 (Sigma and Sigma +) and NG3 (Razor’s Edge for Wii U and then other systems) to a lesser extent.

      I won’t be surprised if they keep getting rereleased, even if it is one of the less loved NG games.

  • Limbless

    Another port, huh… them next gen consoles eh

  • Kornelious

    (Sigh) I just bought Ultimate thinking THAT would be the defintive version, and now it’s being ported to PS4……This same thing happened with the original version (Though I probably should’ve expected something from the start) X(

    ………I guess it’s cool though, The game will probably run better on the PS4 and hopefully MOST of the DLC will be included……And hopefully this really is THE LAST round (Didn’t think we would go beyond Ultimate -_-)

    • The DLC for DOA 5 is unreal I got the normal DOA 5 and made it my mission in my head to buy all the extra DOA stuffs. Until suddenly I opened up the PSN Store searched for DOA 5, and then exited it and backed away slowly going “Take all my nopes!”

    • aoihana

      Yeah, like you said, this is The Last Round, but then again, there could be a draw that warrants another entry!

      • That moment when ‘The Last Round 2’

        • Death Metal

          Well, look at how many “FINAL Fantasies” we have, and you don’t see people complaining.

    …So.. many PS4 games I want now!!!!!

    Kingdom Hearts III
    Tekken 7
    Mortal Kombat X
    Final Fantasy XV
    Dragon Ball Xenoverse
    One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3
    Akiba’s Trip 2
    and now this…

    I’m gonna try and obtain a PS4 in May next year. I know like DOA and DBX and Akiba’s should be out by the time I obtain one so it should be all good.

    • Arcade Miss Fortune

      Let’s also ask Capcom how many Street FIghter 4’s they gonna do?

    • subsamuel01

      You still got time before most of those games come out, trust me as a PS4 owner your not really missing out right now.

    • Ty Austin

      Agreed, it’s becoming easier and easier justifying a new console purchase for me.

  • Spidermang

    Fucking knew it, glad i didn’t waste money on a lot of dlc.

  • aoihana

    Luckily, I didn’t splurge on Ultimate, and I’m planning on getting a PS4 by the end of the year, so I’ll definitely be picking this up.

    Dead or Alive is one of those games that you don’t need to know how to play very well, but is fun regardless, haha!

  • Perro

    I use to love Dead or Alive 2 Hardcore on the PS2, then I replayed it and could barely stand it. Haven’t played a DOA game since, mostly because they went exclusive to the XBOX for awhile, but I’m somewhat interested in this.

  • Stephen Mc Devitt

    They’ll probably still sell all the DLC separately for maximum profit. I hope they at least add a hotel story mood with campy Scooby Doo cliches and everyone gets layed regardless of gender or sexual orientation.

  • subsamuel01

    If this comes with all the DLC I will buy it, need something to play on my PS4.

  • Guest

    >_______________________> TK, I really like DoA5, but COME ON.

  • Pedro Rosas

    I’m ok with this, now I can enjoy those sexy women in full resolution

  • MadokaXHomura

    This is the next Street Fighter IV.

    • John Hayabusa

      I upvoted your comment just because of that cute yuri avatar of yours. Of course, DOA5 is becoming like SFIV.

  • flower234

    They couldn’t have just moved on to DOA 6?

    • Looks like they want to milk the 5th instalment for all it’s worth until there’s no disc space left.

    • Ty Austin

      DOA5 has barely been out 2 years (even less if you count the ultimate version.)

      There’s no reason for a sequel yet.

  • Veedot

    So basically Injustice Ultimate Edition?

  • Ni ~Algidus~

    nah. i’ll wait for DOA5: Sigma Round Plus

  • 하세요

    It was also announced for PS3 and Xbox 360.

  • I wanted to play with all the new characters, but it looks like I’ll be waiting for the localized PS4 version then…………

  • RunningWild1984

    You know it’s bad when the new consoles keep getting last gen games.

    And even then… it’s DOA.

    So glad I never bought Ultimate and just stuck with the free to play version. All I need is Mila, and she was given out for free a few months back.

    I don’t think I’ll be getting this new version though unless it includes all the DLC released up to this point and it was released on Steam since there is a serious lack of 3D fighters on PC… until Tekken 7 comes out.

  • Ty Austin

    They just announced that this will also be hitting 360 and PS3.

    Wow, this makes one DOA5 revision a year. It’s becoming the Madden of fighting games, lol.

    • Göran Isacson

      True enough. Although Street Fighter IV did drop SSFIV and Arcade Edition with only a year between each other too, so I guess this has precedent… now I’m just wondering if they’re going to wait three years and then announce a superduperfinal version before getting on with DOA 6.

  • Bob Slim

    So another DOA5. I have to buy this 1 too.
    It makes all the dlc I brought a waste if all the dlc is in this

  • E.T.993

    Portsation 4?

    • Black Heaven

      Surely you’ve read it’s also in Xbox One (if you’re on ‘that side’), so your ‘Portsation’ may also apply there.

      • Solid Knight #SouledOut


      • E.T.993

        Oh, yeah right. Xobox One:More ports than Xbox 1.

  • I’ll buy it. DoA5 is my favorite fighting game. It better have some of the DLC already like Phase 4.

  • CozyAndWarm

    Really, really disappointed that they’re intentionally shunning the Wii U for a DoA5 release. I’ve been waiting forever now…

    • Bob Slim

      Cuz the Wii U sails suck. Its just not DOA5 no 1 wants to put games on it. Not games like this anyway

      • vanishmantle

        Wii u is at 7.1 mil sales world wide and beats out the xb1 each month in sales which is at 5mil world wide… but xb1 is getting games… 3rd parties just dont like making games for wii u or 3ds is all

        • Kaijumaster

          The eternal Nintendo cycle. System sales sag because third party won’t make games. Third party won’t make games because system sales sag.

          Nintendo releases awesome first party titles to move Hardware. Sales are boosted. People complain we just keep getting Mario/Zelda/Kirby rehashes.

          Release new system and repeat.

          • midgard229

            all because nintendo either releases their console too late (Gamecube) or their consoles are far too weak. (Wii, Wii-u)

          • Kaijumaster

            Hardly any sort of scientific measurement, but looking at my Wii games kept once the generation was done vs. PS3 games. Then power wasn’t really any sort of deciding factor.

        • Solid Knight #SouledOut

          The difference between Xbox one and Wii U is that the Xbox One hasn’t even been in the market for a year and it’s almost gonna pass the Wii u.

          • vanishmantle

            While this is indeed true the sales for the Wii U have increased in the last year. It went from 4mil at the start to 7mil as of August. So the growth is there the Problem with the XB1 is that its sales are slumping going into the holiday season with the biggest game coming to it being MCC which will move consoles but enough to take over the wii u? I doubt it.

            This argument doesn’t even hold when you consider that the Vita is getting 3rd party support with obviously less units in comparison to the 3DS which is one of the best selling devices at this point in time. So most of these “install base is missing” comments when aimed at nintendo for why they won’t put games on the wii u make no sense when these devs were putting games on the XB1 and PS4 before they even sold a single unit. If 3rd Parties TRULY cared about install base they should just shove everything onto the 3DS which has the largest audience currently outside of last gen consoles.

            Let’s just be real it is an excuse for them to not put games on a console because reasons.

    • wahyudil

      wait next year … if Wii U sales has increased significantly I believed Tecmo Koei won’t let it pass

    • Death Metal

      Funny. If you post a comment exactly like this on a Nintendo news piece and switch Wii U for PS4 or XONE, you get your comment deleted as “port begging”.

  • s07195

    It’d better be. XD
    I can hear people beginning to riot already. XD

  • ishyg

    DAT 1080p, 60FPS plot.

  • BillyMK

    So there’s a new one for Ps3 and Xbox as well? You know Team Ninja, it’s not really ultimate if you’re gonna do more versions. I just bought it last month *sigh*. At least go the Ultra Street Fighter route and offer an update version.

  • WhyWai

    Please use the same engine to make a new DOAX! XD
    might buy it for PS4, what’s the extra included to warrant another release on PS3? I thought it’s a HD upgrade.

  • wahyudil

    ultimate is not the ultimate

    final round should be not the final round …

    I need the real final ultimate … if there will be any

  • I’d buy that

  • Izanagidonutz
