Dead or Alive 5+ for Vita


Temco & Team Ninja spill the beans on their fighting game for the PS Vita and it sounds great.  Chin Soon Sun – Community Manager, Tecmo Koei Europe announced the following information.

 Dead or Alive 5+ is coming soon to PlayStation Vita! Now you can enjoy the same powerful new moves and acclaimed in-depth fighting system with over 20 playable characters and blockbuster stages from the PlayStation 3 version. Today I would like to tell you about a few of the new features we’ve included in the PS Vita version.

He went on to tell us all of the great things they are doing with this game.


New Touch controlled Fighting is a new mode for the Vita. You can attack your opponents with a simple tap of the touch screen. Characters react based on where they are touched or attacked during a fight. This allows you to fight from the traditional third person view, or hold your PS Vita vertically to interact with characters from a close-up first person perspective.

Now this next part is excellent news for all of the owners of Dead Or Alive 5 on the PlayStation 3, there is cross-play, cross-goods & cross-save! So you can fight players online on either system and sync data to share downloadable content and save data – use your favorite costume unlocked with PlayStation 3 on your PS Vita!

All characters available on PS3 can be used on PS Vita as well. Battles run at 60fps for both systems, which is quite impressive and should please a lot of fans.

Not enough new information, how about..

  • The new Tutorial Mode will teach you the skills needed to come out on top in a variety of different fight scenarios.
  • There is three times the detail for each move in real time – like delay interval frames, move reach and more.
  • You can also choose your favourite music to set the tone for each fight.

Dead or Alive 5+ for the PlayStation Vita will be released across Europe on 22nd March 2013.
