Dead or Alive 5 is charging $25 for these new costumes


11:00 PM on 10.15.2013



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 today for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, bringing Halloween into Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate.

I'm just at a loss for words here. Just, why? Why would anyone waste this much money on getting game characters near naked? Go buy a bunch of indie games on Steam or something instead. Ugh.

Impressions: Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate

"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?more

This is your first look at Phase 4 in Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate Arcade

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.more
