Koei Tecmo finally ready to move on from Dead or Alive 5


Done with DLC

September 25 will mark the 5th anniversary of the first release of Dead or Alive 5, Koei Tecmo's beautiful babe and bro brawler that has seen as many re-releases and version updates as it has articles online referring to it as filth. There is the original, Dead or Alive 5 Plus for the PlayStation Vita, Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate for last-gen consoles, Dead or Alive 5 Last Round for current-gen consoles, Dead or Alive Ultimate Arcade and the free-to-play Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate Core Fighters.

DLC for Last Round has been an ongoing affair. Currently in its seventh season, the total cost for all of the game's DLC is an extremely affordable $633. It's no Train Simulator but goddamn that is a lot of money for some costumes. This December, that all comes to an end.

At the Tokyo Game Show, producer Yosuke Hayashi confirmed DLC support for the game will end this year so the team can "focus on the future."I hope this means we'll finally see a Dead or Alive 6 soonish, and hopefully, Venus Vacation's Misaki will be able to make her fighting game debut because she looks like she's ready to throw down.
