Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja have released an abundance of new media for Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate

title ever made.
Costumes – Three “Pop Idol” inspired sets include a “JPOP” style set for Ayane and Kasumi; a self-explanatory “Schoolgirl” inspired set for Hitomi, Kokoro, Leifang and Mila; and a “Bad Girl” set, comprised mainly of leather and lace, for Helena, Lisa, Momiji, Rachel, Sarah and Tina. On top of that, any costumes that have been unlocked in Dead or Alive 5 can be transferred to Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate
Improved Training Mode – Tutorial mode has been improved with the addition of new lessons, while the Combo Challenge mode gives players the chance to practice moves and strategies.
Movies – Players will be able to relive thier favourite moments from the game, from entrance and victory animations to story scenes. Not only are these scenes viewable, players will be able to personalize their experience by changing costumes and hairstyles.
Survival Mode – Survival mode sees the return of dropped items when performing actions such as ground attacks or defeating opponents. Each of the nine items provides a different bonus, for example, some items can restore health or reward the player with bonus points.
Team Fight Mode – Build your own team and fight against another player or the computer. Choosing your characters wisely is critical as you’ll need to balance skill sets, speed and fighting styles in order to gain the advantage.
