Is it just me or is it getting a little bit hotter in here?! It’s official, Tecmo Koei’s sizzling hot fighting game known for being  full of hot, sexy women is coming back to arcades after 13 years. Yes ladies and gents, Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate is coming to arcades soon.


This would be the first time the franchise will be having an arcade version since 2000’s Dead or Alive 2 Millennium. They have announced that the Arcade edition will be using Sega’s ALL.Net P-ras MULTI Ver. 2 platform. (For more on gaming here at SGCafe, click here)

This historic announcement was made by Team Ninja producer Yosuke Hayashi. He said that “DOA is coming back to the place where it was born”. Of course, he was referring to the original Dead or Alive which was first released in arcades way back in 1996. Since then, the series known for fast-paced 3D fighting and um… bouncing breasts has sold over 860 million copies worldwide. The new arcade version of Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate is slated for release Winter 2013.

Besides the arcade version, DOA 5 Ultimate will also release some hot special edition packages for their PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 releases. And yes, it won’t be Dead or Alive without the FAN SERVICE and these new special edition packages amp it up big time.

The first special edition packs have two variations; Kasumi Blue and Momiji Red. The two editions cost about 16,590 yen each and each include:

  • Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate game
  • THE Ultimate sexy costume download code
