Dead or Alive 5 headed to PC but it won't have online at launch

Armageddon

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 which we would prefer: getting the feature-incomplete game on February 17 alongside the console versions, or having the PC port arrive later with online enabled from day one. Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja thought the former option was the way to go, clearly.

On Steam, they're doing that "pre-purchase rewards" thing in which the more people pay for Dead or Alive 5 up front, the more rewards (in this case, costumes) pre-purchasers get. Those swimsuits aren't going to unlock themselves, and I don't want to miss a thing.
