Dead Or Alive 5 Ultimate Is Getting A Sexy Halloween Costume Pack, And Zack Is Still An Asshole

By

Sometimes, content in games isn’t trying to bring about any new players. After watching the above Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate trailer — essentially a dopey visual feast that shows off the game’s upcoming Halloween DLC — I have to say that I can’t imagine it being put together for anybody but DoA fans and DoA fans alone. It wasn’t more than 30 seconds in before I was cracking up at series resident lovable toolbag Zack as he hurtled through the air in a green skeleton jumpsuit and “Let’s Party” top hat, only to be instantly countered in bone-crunching defeat. Some guys just never learn.

Of course, half the reason DoA’s ridiculousness works is because it also happens to be a great game, and though I doubt I’ll fork over $25 just to get my hands on these new costumes, it might be a different story if I hadn’t been playing the game so much lately. A fun, seasonal coat of provocative Halloween paint might be just the thing to rope dormant DoA-ers back into the fold for another month or two, be it purely for eye-candy or not. Frankly, I doubt Tecmo Koei really cares how it keeps people hooked, as long as it’s ultimately able to.

The new Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate duds can be had at $1.99 a pop if you just want them for your favorite characters, or if you’d rather dress up the entire cast you can save a little bit overall and buy the whole set for $25. My personal favorite is definitely Hitomi’s new angelic look, though Pai’s makeover is pretty great as well. The DLC is available now, so be sure to check out Team Ninja’s gallery┬ábefore deciding whether to pull the trigger yourself. Trick-or-treat… but mostly treat.
