EmperorCow tells you How!

The past couple of months, thanks to a superior portable version in DOA5 Plus, I’ve warmed up a lot to Dead or Alive 5. It’s certainly one of the more challenging beat ‘em ups thanks to the evil A.I. in single player (once you ratchet up the difficulty), but this video by EmperorCow should help a lot. It’s always been a problem for me whenever I get knocked down, the CPU always seems to know how to get me every single freakin’ time. This may help- or not. Well, it can’t hurt to know the proper ways to recover. There are more vids (since this particular one is part 5) which should go a long way to making any DOA5 newbie more capable and competent in no time. Check it out!

Team Ninja shows off their portable port on Japanese TV.

The PS Vita port of Tecmo-KOEI’s Dead or Alive 5 is almost upon the fighting game world, starting tomorrow March 19. Dead or Alive 5 Plus will bring a few new features unique to the touchscreen-enabled portable, such as Touch Fight, where you can literally poke and swipe the CPU opponent into defeat, a more detailed training mode and some new costumes. The game will support Cross Play with the PS3 version, so you can play with outfits already unlocked on your console on the PSV.

Team Ninja’s head, Yosuke Hayashi, showed off the game on a Japanese TV show, and notably the hosts (well, the male host in particular) were quite enamored with the breast bounce feature (which is oddly absent apparently from the NA version). The vid also shows off some of the bonus outfits- the Cheerleader suits which will be a preorder bonus for some shops (such as Gamestop) and the ‘Paradise Bikinis’ that are part of the Japanese Collector’s Edition release. No word on when these bonuses will be available generally for all, but I assume they will sometime after launch.
The game certainly looks cool and the graphics pretty close to the home version- but I still can’t see myself getting a Vita just for this, and particularly just after I bought a new desktop (sigh). But hey, we’ll see. Touch Fight kinda looks interesting. Heheh…

New Dead or Alive 5 Plus Trailer!

‘Touch’ the DOA Girls like never before!

Here’s the latest trailer for the upcoming PS Vita fighter, Dead or Alive 5 Plus. A bit of an upgrade to the console versions, Plus brings all the action and cheesecake of Tecmo’s babe-licious fighter to the handheld, along with some unique uses of the device’s touchscreen. You can hold the device normally (horizontally) for the full panoramic view of the battlefield, or play with the PSV held vertically to focus on your opponent (they will fill up the whole screen). The ‘Touch Fight’ mode relegates controls to simple taps for blows, swipes for launchers and pinches for holds and grapples. Yes indeed, Team Ninja has finally brought the sexy fighting game you can play ANYWHERE with one hand. Heh.

Just the apparent fact that DOA5 looks so close to its console version is something special- this looks to be an awesome addition to the Vita library, and also a great way for PS3 X PSV play as you can share saves, progress and DLC between the two platforms. DOA5 Plus is really looking to be something special- this hits late next month.
