DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE heightens the signature DOA fighting style with the inclusion of new modes from DOA5 PLUS, dynamic new stages, and deadly new fighters to deliver the ultimate in fighting entertainment.
Players will take on the roles of their favorite DEAD OR ALIVE fighters—as well as combatants new to the franchise—in an intense, action-packed brawler set in visually striking locations from around the world. The famed DOA hand-to-hand combat is enhanced with new content that extends the experience.
The game's definitive stages include the return of classic fan favorites as well as new locations from the NINJA GAIDEN series such as Sky City Tokyo. These stunning backdrops feature deadly new danger zones such as the Great Buddha Statue that change with the flow of the fight. Each stage creates fresh ways for players to defeat their opponents.
The characters in DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE continue to push a sensual yet realistic style, rendered in incredibly lifelike detail. From smooth, lithe muscles to emotive facial expressions, every fighter comes to life in the heat of combat. A highlight of the game's huge cast is the first ever DOA appearance of NINJA GAIDEN's Momiji. She joins the DOA cast utilizing the Hayabusa-style Aikijutsu taught by the master himself.
Along with a rich array of single-player modes including story mode, DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE offers online options with arcade-style matches, tournaments, and social features. Players can be paired into one-off matches or work their way up the leaderboards for the honor and prestige of competing in global tournaments. Competitive matches can also be watched by any player as a learning tool.
