If you’ve already acquired a healthy wardrobe of skimpy Dead or Alive 5 costumes, then you may be delighted to learn that they’ll all be compatible with the fighter’s upcoming PlayStation Vita port, Dead or Alive 5 Plus. That brand new first-person mode may have a purpose after all.

In addition, according to Siliconera’s translation of the latest issue of Famitsu magazine, the busty beat ‘em up will also support cross-play, allowing you to challenge your friends and strangers irrespective of platform. You’ll even be able to transfer your progress between systems.

Sadly, outside of the DLC, there’s no word on the full game supporting cross-buy. That means that if you already own the title on the PS3, then you’re probably going to have to buy it again for the Vita. Hopefully the promotional image to the right will help to, er, ease your disappointment.
