Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate release date set for September

Tecmo Koei confirms full E3 line-up

Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate will be released for Xbox 360 and PS3 on September 3.


That falls on a Tuesday and thus is likely a US-region date, which indicates a possible EU launch on Friday, September 6.

Publisher Tecmo Koei confirmed the date in a list of its planned E3 line-up games (via Gematsu), which also appears to confirm Western releases for Atelier Meruru Plus: The Apprentice of Arland and Toukiden on PS Vita (out September 3 and 'Q4 2013' respectively).

Also on the firm's E3 showcase list is Dynasty Warriors 8 (PS3, 360, out July 16) and Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z (PS3, 360, out early 2014).

Being released in both physical and digital forms, DOA5 Ultimate comes with all of the new modes added to Dead or Alive 5 Plus on Vita, along with new stages and fighters, including the first ever DOA appearance of Momiji.

The Ultimate version will also feature levels from the Ninja Gaiden series. Check out a Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate trailer here.
