  • Review Dead or Alive 5 (PlayStation 3)

    Looks can be deceiving

    Dead or Alive 5 is nothing if not utter nonsense. Tecmo Koei has had seven years to stuff its flashy fighting series full of gibberish, and it’s delivered. Unfortunately, it’s forgotten to fully advance the combat systems at the heart of the experience along the way – and the sequel feels like a half-step as a result...

Dead or Alive 5 News

  • News After 5 Years, Team Ninja Is Moving on from Dead or Alive 5

    But no mention of a sequel yet

    Team Ninja's been supporting Dead or Alive 5 for years -- across two generations, we might add -- showering the flashy fighter with approximately 12 billion different costume packs. Now, it sounds like the developer's finally leaving the game behind. After the title's latest tournament wrapped up, the studio...

  • News Dead or Alive 5: Last Round's New Deception Costumes Come Off as You Battle

    Ripped to bits

    Dead or Alive 5: Last Round's got a new costume set based on the Deception franchise, and, much like the outfits of those that you destroy with brutal traps and contraptions in the latter series, these fresh costumes also rip, break, and fall apart as you take damage. This isn't the first time that the latest Dead or Alive release...

  • News Share Your Skills with Dead or Alive 5 Video Upload Patch

    Put on a show

    Budding kings of the ring will soon be able to evidence their ability in the arena with video footage. A forthcoming patch for Dead or Alive 5 will allow you to upload your match replays to both YouTube and Facebook, though there is currently no date for the upgrade. Other improvements include the option to filter online matches by...

  • Store Update 28th November 2012 (Europe)

    Bubble pop

    Nothing in this week’s European PlayStation Store update is going to grab your attention like a Hyuna music video, but there are still a handful of goodies to keep your eye on. Ratchet & Clank: Q-Force, Travel Bug, and Dead or Alive 5 appear to be the most notable new additions. Shut down that YouTube tab, and we’ll get started.

  • News Dead or Alive 5 Will Be Available Digitally At Launch

    Easy access

    Not every title suits a digital release, but fighting games certainly benefit from the added accessibility of being stored on a hard drive. As such, it makes perfect sense that Dead or Alive 5 will be available from the PlayStation Store alongside its retail counterpart. You’ll be able to download the title from 25th September in North...

  • News Dead or Alive 5's Facebook Integration Seems Misjudged

    Share something

    Tecmo Koei wants your friends and family to know that you enjoy watching unrealistically beautiful women kicking the crap out of each other. Its upcoming PS3 brawler Dead or Alive 5 will include full Facebook integration that will allow you to share fighting records with your friends. Naturally, we’re a little bit anxious about...

  • News Team Ninja Wants Ryo Hazuki in Dead or Alive 5

    "I see"

    When Ryo Hazuki is not searching for sailors, playing Lucky Hit, or ignoring the advances of countless beautiful women – he’s fighting. And Dead or Alive 5 director Yosuke Hayashi reckons that would make him a perfect fit for the upcoming arcade brawler. Asked by VG247 if he had any dream cameos in mind, Hayashi responded: “I’d say...

  • News So Much for Dead or Alive 5 Not Being Creepy

    Bikinis, anyone?

    We feel stupid for buying into Yosuke Hayashi’s lip-service about elevating Dead or Alive 5’s image now. The Team Ninja executive claimed earlier in the year that the studio was hoping to tame the brawler’s juvenile “sex and violence” tone – and we actually believed him. But this brand new trailer – which shows Zack...

  • News Hori's Dead or Alive 5 Arcade Stick Pushes Our Buttons

    Too hot to handle

    This Hori built Dead or Alive 5 arcade stick is useful for a number of reasons. Firstly, it includes all of the buttons you’ll need to become a pro at Tecmo Koei’s upcoming PS3 brawler. Secondly, it bears the slogan “I’m a fighter” – which should come in extremely handy when you forget why you’re holding it in the...

  • News Team Ninja Introduces Dead or Alive 5's Latest Combatant

    A right rigmarole

    If you’re working on an oil rig, then it’s probably best to settle your disputes without setting fire to the fragile platform you're residing on. Still, that’s exactly what happens in this Dead or Alive 5 trailer, as newcomer Rig and returning favourite Bass Armstrong brawl over, er, motorbikes. The footage is melodramatic...
