Dead or Alive 5 announced for PlayStation Vita

Dead or Alive 5 PLUS will being making its way to the Vita soon. Find out all the details below.

The PlayStation Vita has become the ultimate platform for fighting games already with a massive line up of Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, Mortal Kombat, Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale, Street Fighter X Tekken, and BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend.

For those of you that enjoy fighting games like those, then you’ll be happy to know that Dead or Alive 5 PLUS will be heading to PlayStation Vita. Team Ninja’s Yosuke Hayashi made the announcement just recently saying that they “plan to release Dead or Alive 5 Plus on the PlayStation Vita at an early stage of next year.” He then went on to say that they “will always back our DOA players and would also like to expand the entertainment of DOA5 furthermore.”

There’s not many details released yet on the game, but Hayashi said to hold on as “Further detail will be made available at a later stage but be assured that features which are appealing as the DOA5 name reads are planned so please look forward to them.” It sound like this game will be more than just a port, but more so its own standing version.

It’s great to see a big franchise start us off in the 2013 year, with hopefully more franchises to come. If you’d like to see the announcement video, you can watch it in its entirety below.

    I’m extremely happy to hear about this one…. DOA on the 3ds looked awsome so I’m sure that the vita will be console quality… I think this might be the only one with the charcter models NOT scaled down albeit the normal BG overhaul.

    Next up, SF4 AE, but I believe Capcom said they won’t even bother porting it.

      Estan buenos todos los Kof,en el 2001 las fotos y musicas son horribles en el 2002 estaba bueno solo las musicas fueron feas.Sabes cual es mi opinion?,un kof um collection con un descuento en neo geo battle coliseum tambien para vita,osea kof 98 and 2002 um collection y un descuento en el otro juego.Te aseguro que vos yo,y muchos otros lo comprariamos con los ojos cerrados.

    We have enough fighting games on the vita already, I would want to see games like the getaway , shenmue , vanquish, rise to honor, sleeping dogs , nba jam, illusion of Gaia 3D on the vita , the current ps vita library is poor and the future doesn’t look bright either , nothing to look forward to, Sony where did you go wrong with the vita ?

    1. Hellinferno’s avatar

      I agree in some part but enough of fighting games? wheres Kof,Rage of the dragon,Power Instinct Matrimelee,Fatal Fury,Tekken and others?,i understand you want shennmue and who doesnt,but it all depends of Sega,i also were looking for skies of arcadia game and a new one coming up also Illbleed,Cannon Spike “Crapcom” so forget it.

    “The PlayStation Vita has become the ultimate platform for fighting games already” so then,where is a new bloody roar,KING OF FIGHTERS,NEO GEO BATTLE COLISEUM,soul calibur,Tekken and others?.The producer of Kof was exiting to work with vita but the fucking Sony seems not care about that AWESOME GAME,Snk and Playmore have tons of great games to make them a remake or just a new game from old franchises suchs as Power Instinct matrimelee and Rage Of The Dragon,fatal fury and Kizuna encounter.

    Heh I remember how much Itagaki hated the PSP and said he would never work on the system (same probably would have gone for the Vita). Since he left (or got the boot depending on how you want to look at it) though, Team Ninja put out one game for the PSP and there are 3 games in the pipeline for the Vita. Kind of moot for me as I haven’t been interested in any of the Ninja Gaiden or DOA titles of the last decade (still love DOA 2 for the Dreamcast), but if they end up being given away in the future through PS+, I’d give it a try =).
