Dead Or Alive 5 Ultimate is going to be the definitive version of Dea Or Alive 5. The Ultimate version comes with 5 extra characters, new stages and a slew of other new features.
Siliconera has been able to try out the game at the E3, noting how all the new characters are quite unique and play differently from each other: Momiji comes with all her unique Ninja Gaiden skills, Rachel is a powerful but slow character and even Ein and Leon will be having a different moveset. Team Ninja wanted to make the two characters stand out and created a different fighting style for Ein, who is now a heavy character.
A new technique has also been added in Ultimate called Power Launcher. By using this technique players will be able to launch the enemy in the air but lose 50% of their health in the process: this will give you the chance to juggle the opponent in the air and deal more damage.
Together with the exclusive additions, Dead Or Alive 5 Ultimate will also be including most of the contents that have been added for the PsVita port of Dead Or Alive 5 called Dead Or Alive 5 Plus: the PsVita version of the successful fighting game came with extra training modes and moves and combos information, music customization options, exclusive DLCs and a first person view mode which was entirely controlled with touch controls.
Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate will launch during Fall on Ps3 and Xbox 360 worldwide; the original game is now available on both consoles while Dead Or Alive 5 Plus is now available on PsVita.
