Dead or Alive 5: Last Round Coming February 17th - console
(hx) 01:41 AM EDT - Oct,24 2014 - Post a comment
Team Ninja has announced that Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is heading to the PS4 / PS3 and Xbone One / Xbox 360 on February 17th. Pre-Ordering at certain retailers will unlock new character costumes.

Team Ninja today unleashed an onslaught of new information for Dead or Alive 5 Last Round. Currently in development for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Koei Tecmo America has confirmed that the game is schedule to launch in North America on February 17, 2015 (February 20 in Europe), and will be available at the price of $39.99 MSRP for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (physical and digital) and $29.99 MSRP for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 (digital only).

With an official launch date in place, Koei tecmo America has detailed preorder incentives for retail preorders (physical copies) at the following North American retailers: Players who preorder Dead or Alive 5 Last Round at GameStop will receive exclusive costume packs including the "Ninja" (for Ayane , Hayabusa, Hayate and Kasumi), and Aloha (for Ayane, Hitomi, Kasumi and Mila ) sets. Pre-ordering at Amazon and Best Buy will give purchasers access to exclusive costumes sets including the "Showstopper" (for Christie, Helena, Lisa and Tina) and "Beach Party" (for Kokoro, Leifang, Momiji and Rachel).

Team Ninja pulls back the curtain even further, divulging more new content players can expect in Dead or Alive 5 Last Round. Dynamic fighting stages are a hallmark of the Dead or Alive series, and they are taken to the next level in Last Round. A fan favorite stage from Dead or Alive 2 makes its glorious next gen debut in The Crimson. A multi-level stage set in a bustling urban street in Asia, players start out on sprawls of tin rooftops where victory and defeat teeter on a razor thin edge. Combatants are one good punch away from being thrown through the surrounding fence, treated to one of several all-new over-the-top Cliffhanger events, and ultimately smashing through to the lower level, a dimly lit street tinged only with the light of surrounding neon signs. In new next-gen screenshots released today, characters Kokoro, Brad, Leifang and Tina can be seen traversing and utilizing Danger Zones across both levels of The Crimson, while sporting brand new costumes and even customized hairstyles.

A co-op wave survival mode is coming to Titanfall tomorrow in its next big update, Respawn have announced. With the new game mode, called Frontier Defense, four players will be able to take on waves of A.I. opponents, with new enemy types also being added to the game. Players will defend objectives in the mode, which will take place on all maps already available in the game. The update, which will be available tomorrow, will be free to all users. After each wave, gamers will be able to place weapons on the map, similar to the horde mode in "Gears of War 3." Enemies will progressively get more difficult with each successive wave, including their own titans battling gamers. The enemies will even have more capabilities compared to current game modes, with one enemy type now able to rodeo a gamer's titan. Respawn said the new game mode will be the game's "biggest update" yet when it's released.
