‘Dead or Alive 5 Plus’ dated, new details emerge

The PlayStation Vita version of Tecmo’s fast-paced fighter, Dead or Alive 5 Plus, now has both a release date and a bunch of new details concerning exclusive features.

This beautiful Vita title will hit PSN and retailers March 19, and thankfully, will be compatible with PlayStation 3 copies of the game. Cross-platform play will allow players to match up against opponents on both PlayStation 3 and Vita, and even sharing costumes across the platforms is an option.

A more expanded list of features that take advantage of the Vita’s hardware can be seen below:

  • Touch Play Mode: Experience battles in DEAD OR ALIVE 5 PLUS through two new styles of touch combat with the PS Vita held vertically in portrait mode to get a first-person, full-screen view of your opponent at maximum size. In Mode 1, tap the opponent to attack them in that spot. In Mode 2, touch, flick, and pinch the screen to attack your opponent with more finesse and options. Both methods offer players an instinctive way to fight while seeing their opponent in the highest graphic detail.
  • Training Plus Mode: Build your fighting skills and knowledge by playing through challenging missions, each of which offers a fun experience while imparting practical knowledge.
  • More detailed Frame Data: Three times the details for each move in real-time. Unbelievably detailed information like delay interval frames, move reach and more. A game-changing feature for serious players!

Look to jump back into the fray in 2013.
