Preorder incentives and a Collector's Edition version for Tecmo Koei's Dead or Alive 5, which will ship on September 25, 2012, have been detailed by the video game publisher. When the DOA series returns this fall, it will have a new look and feel while honoring the core franchise's fighting legacy, and premiums for the game reflect this with both sensual in-game swimsuits for female characters and a deluxe set of both physical and in-game items in a sleek metal case for the Collector's Edition.
Players who preorder Dead or Alive 5 at GameStop or Amazon will get an exclusive set of in-game bunny-style swimsuits for three female characters. At GameStop purchasers will get a 'DOA Angels' set of white swimsuits for Kasumi, Leifang, and Hitomi, while Amazon players will get a set of three 'DOA Devils' black swimsuits for Christie, Tina, and Ayane.
Available exclusively at GameStop, the game's Collector's Edition pulls out all the stops to provide a rich package of physical and in-game items for fans, starting with the first-class embossed steel case that keeps the precious goods inside safe. Along with the game, players get premium swimsuit costumes for DOA5's full cast of playable female characters. An exclusive hardcover art book details the game's lush imagery and the game's stirring soundtrack CD lets fans experience the music of DOA even when they're away from the game. Finally, a full-color poster of the game's cast tops off the deluxe package of items. Dead or Alive 5 will be available for an MSRP of $59.99 for the regular edition and $79.99 for the Collector's Edition.
The game will be published for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
