Dead or Alive 5: Ultimate
Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate Halloween Costumes Now Available

View author's profile

A new batch of costumes to celebrate Halloween have been released for Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate today, granting each character their very own faintly ludicrous costume.

Some of them are witchy for the ladies, some are slightly demonic, and in the guy characters' cases, they're all pretty daft. Ryu Hayabusa becomes a bandaged-up ninja mummy, Bass becomes an operatic Viking type and Zak becomes a dancing skeletal buffoon in a hat that says 'let's party', whereas Jann Lee wears a cartoon dragon outfit. Because.

You can check out all of the costumes in the Japanese language trailer below, and all of the costumes are available to download now via Xbox Live at $1.99/£1.59 a pop. Alternatively, you can get the whole set for $24.99/£19.99. You can look at them in more detail (ahem), in the screenshot gallery.

I agree. The costumes are nice, but not nearly worth $25.

Sorry but this is fucking bull shit

first I had to buy doa5 plus lots of costume dlc
I had to buy doa5u and lots of dlc

for 19.99 I could get 3-4 g.o.d titles
maybe if they did some free stages with the dlc or a new character
it would not feel so bad

when I said I had to I ment if I wanted to.

Have the makers of doa5u been talking to capcom

You don't have to buy every costume, I doubt you all use every character. I'm just buying three costumes.

@ 11

Maybe people like having the complete versions of their games. Maybe people have friends that come over to play said game and would like to have access to all costumes. Maybe people have a right to think $25 for fucking costumes is over the top bullshit.

My opinion of course, but I think it's fucking lame to charge this much for shit that used to be in game unlockables. Remember back in the day you could change the date on your console and unlock special items. I remember Dead or Alive ultimate on Xbox original having 20 costumes to unlock per character.

DLC is the worst thing to happen to this generation. Companies are so greedy that they are charging out the ass for the smallest things. Why should a Halloween costume pack cost more than half the cost of the game?

I agree with your comment
they should make them unlockable
and have special free costume dlc or create a costume
the first doa had you playing arcade
20 times with kasumi to unlock her 20 costumes
or how ever many she had
that was free AND make you play again and again

doa5u . Street Fighter . Arcane Heart etc

at least tekken tag and soul calibur had some unlock costume

Holy crap! $25 is too damn much for a costume pack, no matter how hot the ladies are. Seriously, people. It's called porn. It's on the Internet you're reading right now, and a lot of the time, it's free. Save yourself the cash, buy a whole different game (Halo 4 is $10 on Amazon today) and don't support this $25 pack of nonsense.

I'm still astonished that publishers managed to con people into paying for costumes. I feel old.
