Earlier in the week, Famitsu reported that Tecmo Koei would release a demo for Dead or Alive 5 Plus on the PlayStation Vita in Japan, sometime in the near future. This morning, Tecmo Koei confirmed a demo release for North America and Europe as well, along with a new game trailer, and an impressive rundown of demo features.
The Dead or Alive 5 Plus demo will be released close to the launch of the full game, Tecmo Koei say. You’ll be able to try out the game’s Touch Fight mode while playing as Kasumi, Hayabusa, Eliot, or Tina. Costumes are unlockable in the demo as well, and your progress can be transferred to the full version of the game.
Additionally, the demo will also be compatible with the PlayStation 3 version of Dead or Alive 5, just like the full game, and will allow for cross-platform battles between the two versions. You’ll have eight stages to fight on in the demo—Scramble, The Show, The Tiger Show, Coming Soon, Zack Island, Dead or Alive, Arrival, and Dojo.
Dead or Alive 5 Plus will be released on March 19th in North America and March 22nd in Europe. Tecmo Koei have already confirmed that the game will run at 60 frames-per-second on the Vita.
