Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate – the upgraded version of the already released DOA 5 – is marked with new modes and character-customization options, and now those of you who pre-order the game can get exclusive costume packs for select characters.

If you pre-order the game at either GameStop or Amazon (full disclosure: Game Informer is owned by GameStop), you can get your hands on a set of new costumes for the title. GameStop pre-order customers will get costumes for Kasumi and Ayane in J-Pop outifts as well as Momiji, Rachel, Tina, Christie, Helena, and Lisa in more mature threads. Amazon customers will get Kokoro, Leifang, Hitomi, and Mila in schoolgirl outfits.

Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate comes out for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 3. For more on the original Dead or Alive 5, take a look at Dan's review and/or gander the trailer below.


Our Take
Re-releasing a title with additional content seems to be the norm for fighting games. Not being a fan of the genre, it seems a little excessive, but what do you Dead or Alive fans think?
