Dead Or Alive 5: Ultimate is the definitive Dead Or Alive 5 package, with new content aimed to bring players the best 3D fighting experience to date. The addition of modes from Dead Or Alive 5 Plus including “Move Details Plus” and a tutorial mode, will allownovice and expert fighters to refine their fighting style with razor-fine precision.
Players will take on the roles of their favorite Dead Or Alive fighters—as well as combatants new to the franchise—in an intense, action-packed brawler set in visually striking locations from around the world. The game’s dynamic interactive stages include the return of classic fan favorites as well as new locations from the Ninja Gaiden series, such as Sky City Tokyo, and features deadly new danger zones including the Great Buddha Statue that change with the flow of the fight.
The dream lineup gets even deadlier with the addition of Virtua Fighter’s Indy Car bad boy and Jeet Kune Do master Jacky Bryant along with long time DOA fan favorite Ein, who returns in incredible fashion, showcasing stunning new character and costume designs. Team Ninja has also revealed two spectacular new stages and additional costumes and modification options for the ultimate Dead or Alive 5 package, a must-have for all fighting game fans.
Jacky Bryant, known as Blue Flash in indie racing circles, is the fourth fighter to crossover from the Virtua Fighter universe. Older brother to Sarah Bryant, Jacky has resolved to take down the mysterious organization J6 who has targeted Sarah. Entering a new type of battle, Jacky will collect information to prepare for the inevitable showdown with J6. Skilled in the art of Jeet Kune Do, Jacky brings his own style to the arena with mercilessly fast chains and combos forcing opponents to stay on the defensive.
Fan favorite, Ein makes his first return to the franchise since DOA2. Known as “The Iron Fist with a Lost Past”, Ein was discovered deep within the Black Forest of Germany without any memory of his past. Saved by a karate master, he eventually learned his true identity as Hayate, Kasumi's brother, and of his kidnapping by DOATEC for the purpose of human research for "Project Epsilon". However, whether his memory has fully returned is questionable. Ein is a well-rounded fighter ideal for fighters new to DOA whose deadly karate punches send opponents flying into walls and Danger Zones.
There are even more dynamic interactive stages in Dead Or Alive 5: Ultimate with the reveal of “Lost World” and “Forest”. In “Lost World”, high above the clouds a battle rages atop a steep vertical stone cliff against a backdrop of distant waterfalls. Fighters must take extra caution in the deceptively serene stage riddled with hazardous areas of narrow footing and massive stone pillars that result in extra damage when thrown against. The second stage “Forest” takes fighters into the fall season in a dense forest replete with the beautiful hues of autumn foliage. Battling along a single road that gets increasing steep as it approaches the mountains, players will use elevation to gain a strategic advantage on their opponent.
Additionally, Dead Or Alive 5: Ultimate brings a wealth of new costume and options to the DOA champions. Hitomi sports a new hairstyle with her new denim jacket and jean outfit. Kasumi's new blue cardigan stands out against the red, orange and yellow tones of the “Forest” stage. Christie is likely to wield even harsher punishment outfitted as a police officer. And this is just the start, with these being just a few of the many costumes that will be included in Dead Or Alive 5: Ultimate the best 3D fighting experience to date.
