Sep 30

Ultimate surprise
May 08
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.
