Dead or Alive 5 Last Round is teaming up with Samurai Warriors


Incoming character, stage, and ouftit DLC

As much as I like the idea of that hunks-in-swimsuits story sitting at the top of the site's Dead or Alive feed for eternity, release date news and screenshots of another character and stage in Dead or Alive 5 Last Round are worth touching on.

The next few content drops are going to be crossovers. Naotora Ii from Samurai Warriors will debut in Last Round for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 17, 2016, followed by an appearance in the PC version on March 29. She's $5.99 standalone, or $11.99 bundled with her "debut" costume pack (which is $7.99 on its own). There can never only be just one set! Speaking of: a Samurai Warriors costume pack for existing DoA characters drops on March 29.

There's also a bit of free content. Dead or Alive 3's Azuchi stage, based on Oda Nobunaga's real-world Azuchi Castle, hits Last Round (PS4 and Xbox One) on March 17.

Lastly, Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja did that thing games do where they try to justify why a crossover character would show up to fight in a different time period. It's sufficiently silly:

"Dragged into a mysterious portal by-way-of a M.I.S.T. time-traveling experiment, the ruler of Japan's Warring States era Ii Clan, Naotora Ii, emerges in present-day next to a competitor of the Dead or Alive fighting tournament. Given no other choice but to fight for her life, and keeping her family motto of 'once on the battlefield, one must face the enemy head on' in mind, a determined Naotora sets out to emerge victorious from this strange new challenge."

If that doesn't make sense yet, it might after you rummage through this gallery. (It won't.)
