Team NinjaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s popular IP returns after a six year absence, on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The 5th instalment of the popular Dead or Alive series will hit the shelves on September 28th across Europe, sporting a new- more mature- look while staying true to the franchiseÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s fighting legacy.
Coming off a strong showing at E3 (where it was nominated for several awards, including Ã¢â‚¬Å“Best Fighting GameÃ¢â‚¬Â by the official E3 awards, the Game Critics Awards), Dead or Alive 5 invites players to once again take on the roles of the DOA fighters. Incorporating a variety of martial arts techniques, unique for each of its characters, the Dead or Alive 5 cast includes notables from the seriesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ history, as well select characters from the iconic fighting series Virtua Fighter (nominally Akira Yuki and Sarah Bryant). This action-packed brawler is set in visually striking locations around the world in all-new 3D stages that dynamically change as the fight progresses.
To celebrate the release of Dead or Alive 5, Team Ninja announced the simultaneous release of an exciting CollectorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Edition, including a rich content of tangible and in-game items that will enhance the gaming experience. In addition, fans who pre-order the game can choose between two exclusive sets of in-game bunny-style swimsuits: the Ã¢â‚¬ËœDOA AngelsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ set of white swimsuits for Kasumi, Leifang, and Hitomi, or the Ã¢â‚¬ËœDOA DevilsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ black swimsuits for Christie, Tina, and Ayane .

-an exclusive hardcover art book detailing the gameÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s rich imagery,
