New modes and features, too
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 everything there is to do in the game. Play dress-up!
There's more than ever to do in DOA5U. A new "2 on 2" tag mode has been added to the mix. You'll now be able to make a tag team with a friend and take on another team via online play. Wins are awarded with Grade points that can be used toward unlockable costumes.
A new Prize Fighter ranking lets players earn ranks by taking consecutive matches. Win ranked matches and earn Grade Points, with the defeat of other prize fighters earning a GP bonus.
Finally, Character Points show a player's skill level with a given character. This lets you gauge how good another player is with any character.
