Mindscape Asia Pacific picks up distribution rights for Dead or Alive 5

...And a collector's edition just for Australia!

Mindscape Asia Pacific announced today that they have received the rights to distribute Dead or Alive 5 in Australia and New Zealand.


The Dead or Alive series took a six year hiatus from the PS3 and Xbox 360 but is now set to make a comeback with Dead or Alive 5 - and Australians will definitely be able to buy it this September.

The fifth installment of the popular fighting series, will stay true to its roots, while "sporting a new, more mature, look."

Dead or Alive 5 will feature a roster full of our old favourites, with characters from Virtua Fighter - namely Akira Yuki and Sarah Bryant - stepping into the mix.

Mindscape have confirmed that Dead or Alive 5 will have a release date of September 28th, and detailed a special collector's edition for Australia, sold exclusively through EB.

The collectors edition will include the game, a set of premium swimsuits for the full cast of playable female characters (we thought DOA 5 was meant to have a mature look?), an exclusive hardcover art book, the soundtrack and a full-colour poster of the DOA 5 cast - all in a shiny metal case!
