Dead Or Alive 5 – New Island Stage, Swimsuits and PatchJanuary 24, 2013
Team Ninja releases a big update for Dead Or Alive 5, featuring a cool tropical theme and gameplay patch.
Team Ninja has announced the arrival of the 1.03 patch for Dead Or Alive 5, featuring gameplay improvements, a free new Zack Island tropical stage, and three all-new swimsuit DLC packs. We reviewed Dead Or Alive 5 back in September, giving it a 4.5/5 score. It’s one of the best fighting games in recent years, and with the new DLC, now’s the perfect time to check it out.
- This fresh new stage is set on a lush tropical island with clear blue sea and white sandy beaches—the perfect place to escape winter doldrums!
- Battles take place on a large beach and can carry into the waves of the neighboring sea
- The sea water is a “slip zone” where characters are more vulnerable to lower body attacks, which can stagger opponents
- Now players can enjoy seaside battles with new moves such as Bayman’s Death Punisher
- Tropical items such as coconuts can fall from trees when shaken or hit during battles, so watch out for falling objects!
