New Dead or Alive 5: Last Round DLC Costumes Are Shockingly Modest; Sixth $93 Season Pass Is Not

Koei Tecmo appears to have the precise intention to keep going with Dead or Alive 5: Last Round costumes pretty much until the end of the world: introducing the sixth season pass.

Today Koei Tecmo released a new set of DLC costumes titled “High Society” (“Young Ladies’ Holiday” in Japanese) for Dead or Alive 5: Last Round, and shockingly, all the costumes included are quite covering and modest, leaving a lot to the imagination.

The costume set is currently available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

What isn’t all that modest is the sixth season pass for the game, that has also been released today on PS4 and Xbox One, and is priced at the usual price of $92.99. If you’re not familiar with the game, you might think I’m pulling your leg, but I’m not.

This means that those who purchased all the season passes so far, including this latest one, spent an additional $557,94 in costumes, unless they caught a deal somewhere, and that’s in addition to the price of the game itself. If you count the game, that’s pretty much the equivalent of two Nintendo Switch consoles right there.

The new season pass provides two Pop Idol costumes as bonuses, fitting Marie Rose and Honoka, and includes the High Society costume set plus the a few more months of DLC. Here is the full list: High Society Costume Set (17 items)- Additional Costumes (February 2017 – 17 costumes)- Additional Costumes (March 2017 – 16 Costumes)- Additional Costumes (April 2017 – 17 Costumes)- Additional Costumes (May 2016 – 17 Costumes)- Additional Costumes (June 2016 – 17 costumes).

Looks like the good folks at Team Ninja aren’t even close to running out of imagination on how to dress (or undress) their heroines, even if this time around they seem to have taken a break from sheer sex appeal in favor of something a bit more classy and ladylike. It’ll be interesting to see if the trend will continue across the following months.

In the meanwhile, you can check out a few screenshots of the new costumes, and a trailer.
