Team Ninja and Tecmo Koei have confirmed the new addition to the Dead or Alive (DOA) franchise. Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate is currently being developed for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and it promises many new features.

The fifth game will present new modes, new fighters, dynamic scenes and hardcore levels. The team leader of Team Ninja, Yosuke Hayashi, says that Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate is a great addition to the DOA franchise and states that the upcoming game has a lot to offer: “We’re excited that our fans will have the opportunity to enjoy an experience that delivers on our signature high energy fighting entertainment.”

Tecmo Koei announced a new friendly system to be included in DOA 5 Ultimate, the tutorial mode. This system will be able to fully explain the game mechanisms to all kind of players allowing “novice and expert fighters to refine their fighting style with razor-fine precision.”

The new characters will follow the same realistic and sensual trend, where females are not simply gorgeous, they’re also deadly in strength, as Tecmo Koei states: “Characters in Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate continue to push a sensual yet realistic style, rendered in incredibly lifelike detail bringing every fighter to life in the heat of combat.
