dead or alive

Forget the Dead or Alive 5 Last Round nude mods. This is where it's at. A modder named Esppiral used their retexturing skills to turn DoA's Jacky Bryant into Shenmue star Ryo Hazuki, and Akira Yuki into Longsun Zhao. Even the...
PlayStation Now is Sony's Gaikai-powered game streaming service that is now automatically installed on your PlayStation 4. Thanks. It is also accessible on newer Sony Blu-ray players and televisions. You don't even have to o...
If you're a fan of the Dead or Alive series then you may have been excited to see that Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is finally out on Steam. However, it's probably important for you to know that it's releasing without a bunch ...
Senran Kagura and Dead or Alive have started a new life together with costumes that, well... they explode. What else did you expect? This relationship between the two properties -- which is purely platonic -- has spawned 16 ...


Earlier this week Square Enix began taking pre-orders for Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward - the upcoming first expansion to Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Releasing later this summer on June 23rd, the game retails for...
Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is the fourth, final iteration of Dead or Alive 5, but that doesn't mean it can't have bugs or a $93 season pass for all the fighters' additional costumes. I guess Last Round doesn't mean "complet...
Koei Tecmo has been riding Dead or Alive 5 since 2012. If you count the PlayStation Vita-enhanced Dead or Alive 5 Plus, the recent Dead or Alive 5 Last Round release marks the fourth iteration. It has a couple new characters ...
If the latest Dead or Alive 5 Last Round trailer didn't have enough explosions for you, then check out this not-creepy-at-all video released by PlayStation Japan that could very well allow you to create your own private expl...
If you haven't been following Dead or Alive's evolution since 2012, it's had a lot of updates. First there was Dead or Alive 5 Plus, then Ultimate, and now, Last Round. It basically has everything from ultimate, as well...
Pretty cool. This video is three trailers in one. The regular old gameplay trailer, then a deeper look at Dead or Alive 5: Last Round's characters (there's two new ones in this iteration), and then sexy bikini ladies. Actual...
Dead or Alive 5 Last Round won't hit its original February 17, 2015 release on PC, as Koei Tecmo has pushed the game to March 30 "n order to provide you with the best possible experience..." To that end, the company is giving...
I excitedly misread a Dead or Alive 5 Last Round press release that began, "THE FIGHTING ROSTER IN DEAD OR ALIVE 5 LAST ROUND CONTINUES TO GROW" Fighting rooster? It's getting bigger? My ears perked up. Sounds...
It's great to see a series like Dead or Alive finally come to PC. Less great, however, is that "Online modes for Dead or Alive 5 Last Round will be added in a patch within three months of release." I suppose it comes down to ...
The (digital only) PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Dead or Alive 5: Last Round, the final game in the Dead or Alive 5 series, are missing some things: new stages, hairstyles, and fight costume customization.  Tea...

After spending a good amount of time teasing, Team Ninja has announced Female Tengu for Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate. Sporting a pair of wings and a devilish demeanor, she reminds me of Devil Jin quite a bit. More than the desig...
Ever wanted to dress up your Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate fighters like cheerleaders or track team sweethearts? You probably want the Ultimate Training Gear DLC pack, rocking 12 different outfits, like "tacky cheerleader un...
This sample combo video of Dead or Alive 5's Phase 4 shows what she's all about -- a shrouded assassin that dashes and vanishes with great ease. She doesn't disappear for long though. That's when the punishment begins again.
Well, we got a new camera and I accidentally switched it onto "Sears Portrait Studio" mode, so sorry if I look a little bit like I'm in a porno from the late eighties. (What else is new.) Today, we've got some more details o...
Team NINJA's Yosuke Hayashi announced that there will be some updates coming to Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate soon. The arcade version will be receiving an update in late January, and it will include new costumes for the fighters....
[Update: I've included a video showing off Marie in action, as well as screens, in the gallery below, of her alternate costume.] Tecmo's Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate Arcade's most recent trailer gives a small glim...
How does Tecmo Koei celebrate Halloween? Or really, any day of the week? With skimpy outfits! Skimpy outfits that they hope you'll pay $24.99 for. Yes, you read that right. 28 costumes for $25. The "special" pack released to...
"If at first you don't succeed..." is an interesting business model, especially considering that Dead or Alive 5 wasn't really a "failure," per se. However, try, try again Team Ninja did, and we are now treated to a third version of this particular entry in the franchise. When it all boils down to it, does Ultimate really make that big of a difference?
Ultimate? You want ultimate? How about 231 costumes in Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate. Dead or Alive 5 had a measly 114 costumes, but Tecmo Koei says that the upcoming PS3 and Xbox 360 game will let you nab 231 costumes by doing ev...
Here's a fat update on Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, coming this September for Xbox 360 and PS3. First, a Pop Idol character costume set has the girls of DOA dressing up like music stars. Ayane and Kasumi go J-Pop, while Hitomi, ...
Though it is a perfectly functional and fun fighting game, Dead or Alive 5 didn't exactly set the fighting game scene ablaze. It sold well enough at least, but Team Ninja plans to breathe new life into the game by making Dead...
Tecmo Koei has a pretty solid line-up for E3 2013, set to go down in a few weeks in Los Angeles. At the top of the list, the Team Ninja and Keiji Inafune tag team title Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z will be playable for the first tim...
Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate expands its fighting roster with the addition of Virtua Fighter's Jacky Bryant. Fan favorite Ein will be also making his first return to the franchise since Dead or Alive 2. Plus there will be two ne...
As a quick follow-up to yesterday's story on Tecmo Koei's latest coming to Japan, we now know that Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate is confirmed for North America and Europe, too. I mean, we had no doubts it was coming. It...
Remember that tease for something DOA related that featured Momoji? We were worried it would be for some silly character DLC. It turns out that it was a tease for a new game: Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate. This week's Famitsu reveals that Dead or Alive 5 Ulitmate is coming to PS3 and Xbox 360. The only thing we know so far is pretty obvious by now: Momiji will be a playable character. Stay tuned.
You almost can't help getting excited after seeing the reaction of the audience in this recorded webclip from a stream that took place this weekend. As you'll see, there isn't a lot to go on. There's noise, then Ninja Gaiden...
Last year, we returned to the sometimes strange but always beautiful Dead or Alive series; not in a leisurely beach title but in the series hallmark fighting genre. What we got was a deep, technical fighter that wasn't too te...
Underneath my gruff exterior beats the heart of a kid obsessed with LEGO. Even now, if I see some of those little bricks, I drop what I'm doing, and start building, ignoring whoever else is in the room. With that in mind, it...
Dead or Alive 5 Plus for the PlayStation Vita will have a demo avaialble shortly before the official release on March 19. Players will be able to have Cross-Play battles with current players of Dead or Alive 5 on the PlaySta...

I love Zack as Santa Claus -- his getup alone is good enough to make me want to get this newly released DLC for Dead or Alive 5. You can get a good look at all the guys and gals of DOA in Santa garb in our gallery. Check out ...
While the initial announcement made the rounds a few days ago, Tecmo Koei has given more details on Dead or Alive 5 Plus for PlayStation Vita. Scheduled to launch in March 2013, this version will naturally offer touch-based m...
It's cold outside, but the cast of Dead or Alive 5 is invincible, so they're wearing swimsuits. At least some of them are furry. The newest Angels and Devils ($2.99 / 240 MSP each) costume packs from Team Ninja put ...
What would Halloween be without sexy costumes? I went into one of those mega-sized Halloween pop-up stores the other day to find that two-thirds of the store was sexy female costumes. They only had crap like 'bloody surgeon' ...
Cat ear fetish? I'm aaaaaaalmost there. It doesn't send me over the edge like pink hair does, but if you're wearing them there's a good chance that I'll end up staring at you. Nyah. There are three new DLC packs for Dead or A...
Team Ninja has dropped their free "Costume Pack 1" for Dead or Alive 5 on both PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade today. Available now. Free. Go! We have a sneak peek for you in our gallery, where you'll find outfits th...
Oh, Team Ninja. Oh my dear, sweet Team Ninja. Oh my dear, sweet, misguided Team Ninja. Oh my dear, sweet, misguided, pervy, creepy, sleazy, weird, freaky, pervy, pervy, pervy Team Ninja. Your boobs are so bad. Your justification of said boobs are worse. Boobs. FYI, I fully admit today's episode is silly and quite possibly pointless. It was, however fun to make and I hope it is fun to watch.
Hey gang! Here we are again, another Friday episode where Tara and I goof off a bunch because we feel like it. Big news today: something something boobs controversy Team Ninja Dead Or Alive 5, Konami unveils collector's editi...
Team Ninja's Yohei Shimbori has been justifying his studio's love of massive breasts with inhuman wobble physics, claiming that while international distributors want the breasts toned down, fans are demanding even bigger...
Remember when Dead or Alive wasn't just a fan-service, minigame-ridden, volleyball-infused, T&A bounce fest? These characters were actual fighters, who regularly beat the crap out of each other in a tournament instead of ...
Dead or Alive 5 will be available as a digital release on PlayStation Network the same day as it hits shelves (September 25), Tecmo Koei revealed at an event tonight in Tokyo. Xbox 360 users will have a couple more days ...
