Dead or Alive 5: Last Round hitting PS4, Xbox One, PS3/360 spring 2015

dead-or-alive-5-last-round-logoTeam Ninja and Koei Tecmo are clearly pulling a Capcom with the Dead or Alive 5 series this past generation. The well-received fighter has had a fair share of significant updates and re-releases already, but they are apparently not quite done yet.

So here we are at the latest iteration — Dead or Alive 5: Last Round. It’s headed to the PS3 and Xbox 360 once again (as digital-only releases) for spring 2015, but the exciting news is that it is also in development for the PS4 and Xbox One. Even better is the news that the latest and greatest DoA5 will only set fans back $39.99 for the new-gen versions, and that it’ll also hit retail and digital storefronts next spring. Dead or Alive 5: Last Round will feature new content, tweaks, character and background variations and more, as expected. Seems fair to us.

Check out the first screens and a trailer to see what to expect from what expect may actually be DoA5’s last round.

Team NINJA today revealed that DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Last Round is currently in development for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. The game will be published by KOEI TECMO America in Spring 2015, and will be available at the price of $39.99 MSRP for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (physical and digital) and $29.99 MSRP for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 (digital only). DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Last Round represents the zenith of the DEAD OR ALIVE 5 series, including the best and brightest content from those games, along with all-new content only found in LAST ROUND, creating the comprehensive DEAD OR ALIVE 5 experience.

?DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Last Round marks an exciting step forward for the franchise, and one that fans have been asking for,? said Yosuke Hayashi, Team NINJA leader. ?Bringing the game to a new generation of consoles is allowing us to create the most graphically striking version of any Dead or Alive game ever, and we are very happy to give our fans the chance to experience our signature high energy fighting entertainment as only the latest consoles can deliver it.?

DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Last Round will take to the ring to deliver the signature DOA fighting style, wrapped up in the most graphically impressive version of a DEAD OR ALIVE game ever seen. The combatants in DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Last Round will present an unparalleled level of life-like detail, and smooth striking animations that will firmly place every fighter in the heat of the moment. The game?s dynamic interactive stages once again boast a range of visually striking locations from around the world, while offering even more destruction, deadly new danger zones and a higher level of strategic choices for players to utilize in the quest for victory.

DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Last Round will deliver the largest roster of fighters in any DOA game to date. Fighters will include: Hayabusa, Hayate, Kasumi, Ayane, Rig, Momiji, Leon, Kokoro, Tina, Lisa, Brad Wong, Jann Lee, Hitomi, Leifang, Christie, Eliot, Leon, Gen Fu, Bayman, Bass, Zack, Helena, Marie Rose, Phase 4 and newly released Nyotengu along with Akira, Pai, Jacky and Sarah Bryant from the Virtua Fighter series. Character customization options get even deeper, as DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Last Round will offer over 300 open and unlockable costumes, and the brand new hairstyle and accessory options will give nearly endless possibilities to adorn the fighters for any occasion. Players can bring their run of rosters, costumes and accessories from DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Ultimate, as previously purchased DLC content will be transferable from last gen consoles to the PS4 and Xbox One.

?We?re excited to deliver to our fans such a fantastic and robust package with DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Last Round,? said Amos Ip, SVP and General Manager of KOEI TECMO America. ?This game is the culmination of the best of the best from the ?DOA 5? series, and it?s great to offer such an incredible value to gamers particularly on the next generation consoles.?

Currently in development by Team NINJA, more details about DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Last Round will be revealed in the coming months. The game has not yet received official ESRB but Koei Tecmo anticipates a rating of ?M? for Mature.
