Several weeks ago, Team NINJA teased that a new version of Dead or Alive 5 is currently in development. The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals that title to be Tecmo Koei’s “Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate”, set to release this fall for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Dubbed as “3D fighting entertainment”, Dead or Alive 5 was released in 2012, the first new title in the series in 7 years. Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate serves as a compilation of that entertainment, building upon the original with the introduction of new content. Momiji of the Ninja Gaiden series has been confirmed to join the battle in DOA5U, along with the introduction of a new stage, Sky City Tokyo.
