Dead or Alive 5 to Feature Transparent Costumes and Costume Specific ‘Bounce’ Mechanics

Last week we reported that Dead or Alive 5 would feature less of an emphasis on the physical assets of its female characters than in past series entries. However, director Yohei Niibori recently gave Famitsu some new details that should please fans of the series’ more raunchy qualities. Accordingly, the individual breast bouncing mechanics of each female character will vary from costume to costume.

The game will also feature costumes with some degree of transparency, but this too will vary from costume to costume. Supposedly, some costumes could be nearly invisible and have the girls bouncing all over the place, while others could keep them as concealed (and restricted) as church nuns.

Yohei-san also says that there will be a selection of remixed costumes from the past games. I’m a bit worried (mostly because of their behavior with Ninja Gaiden 3) that Team Ninja will follow the current fighting game trend and sell the extra costumes as DLC. Then again, DOA games have always included a ton of costumes for each characters, so I’m sure there will be plenty to choose from.

Dead or Alive 5 will be available this September.
