Tecmo has today confirmed the Collector's Edition content for its scantily-clad fighter Dead or Alive 5, with a host of collectible items and DLC packed into the box. There's also some pervy additional outfits planned as pre-order incentives, in the shape of bunny-style swimsuits for the female fighters.

If you choose to pre-order Dead or Alive 5, you can choose between two exclusive sets of bunny swimsuits for the ladies. There's the 'DOA Angels' pack, which bundles white swimsuits for Kasumi, Lei-Fang and Hitomi or the 'DOA Devils' black swimsuits for Christie, Tine and Ayane.

Meanwhile, the Dead or Alive 5 Collector’s Edition, which will be available in the UK exclusively through CentreSoft bundles the following (more swimsuits!) into a special box:

  • The Dead or Alive 5 game
  • A set of premium swimsuits for the full cast of playable female characters
  • An exclusive hardcover art book detailing the game’s rich imagery
  • CD soundtrack
  • Full-colour poster of the DOA5 cast
  • High-quality embossed metal case packaging

Dead or Alive 5 is out this September. You can read all about it in our hands-on preview from E3, right here. There's currently no image of the Collector's Edition, but Tecmo did release the picture below as a teaser.

@Earth Djinn the demo has been out for months - you can get a special version of it with an extra mode if you buy Ninja Gaiden 3's limited edition, too.

Hrm, so does that mean the collectors is only available in the UK? That would make me a bit salty.
I've been looking forward to this game since the alpha demo that came with NG3 (my gf has as well). Swimsuits are a nice touch but not needed to get my pre-order and may actually turn people off to the game (though honestly, everyone that knows Team Ninja? yeah we like it :D).

@12 We'll find out tomorrow I guess, since it usually takes GameStop a day after an announcement (if not already known) to get the game in their system.
Centersoft seems to be a wholesaler middle-man, so perhaps if your local shop has an account with them you can order it through them?

That sucks that Gamestop get the CE exclusive, not sure if I'll be getting it regular through Amazon or not yet depends on how much disposable income I have when Sept. rolls around.

@ #16: If by "blood" you mean water on otherwise-dry skin, you're right. In my experiences, blood is usually red . . . well, except for that time I got into a fight with some Yautja and Vulcans.

OT: I'm not 100% sold on this game, but I do love the inclusion of Sarah Bryant.

OK, so CE is a GS exclusive here in the states, good that we get it (and I need to head there after work :P)

@16 : It's sweat, all fighters get sweatier the longer the fight goes, and dirtier more they've taken damage during the current pairing.

Yep, every CE version of DoA5 comes packaged with the DoAX volleyball 3 swimsuits at a nominal cost.

Ok I guess the U.S. is getting this, from what I gather on Team NINJA's twitter, only Gamestop will have the CE and the "DOA Angels" pre-order DLC while Amazon will have the "DOA Devils" pre-order DLC.

Here's the link to their twitter:!/TeamNINJAStudio

@27: Believe what you will but there is far worse C.E. goodies that are "perverted" than some DLC bikinis (i.e. booby mousepads being one of them). Granted I'm getting this because I love steelbooks and artbooks, the CD is a nice little bonus too.

Anyway, I hope they put up a picture soon I'd love to see what the Steelbook looks like :D

@28 you're so right! I'm glad for the steel book, costumes, and soundtrack. Love DoA after playing DoA2. Could the picture above be the steel box art? Or just an image of one of the costumes?

Who has access to the demo? The United States? I have ninja gaiden 3 and I don't have access to it, and it is not on the dashboard for download.

Christie, Tina, and Ayane costumes? Well, they're the hottest characters anyway so it's obvious which one to buy.

Looks like Team Ninja realizes that they need T&A in DOA5. About freaking time, that's a huge part of what the game is known for. Too bad they won't have as many awesome costumes as DOA Ultimate. Best DOA in my opinion.

I have the demo from my ninja gaiden 3. I had more fun in the demo than the actual ninja gaiden 3 game. I was worried that they would ruin the combat with the special quicktime style events during battle however its quite fast paced so the action doesnt slow down much at all. DOA 5 will rock
