Dead Or Alive 5 Last Round Will Render at 1080p60 on Xbox One and PS4

Publisher Tecmo Koei offers new details and release date for its remastered fighting game.

Publisher Tecmo Koei has assured that its next-gen remaster of Dead or Alive 5 will render at 1080p and run at 60 frames-per-second on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The expanded game, officially called Dead or Alive 5 Last Round, is also in development for Xbox 360 and PS3 (and will render at different frame rate and resolution on last-gen versions). The budget-priced title (starting at $30) is based on the 2012 release Dead or Alive 5, and is packaged with numerous tweaks and new content such as a wider variety of characters.

Along with demonstrating various graphical enhancements, both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will render at the same frame-rate and resolution, according to a representative speaking to Videogamer.com.

Developer Team Ninja announced the new project on Saturday, and has since said the Dead or Alive 5 Last Round release date will fall on "Spring 2015".

It will be available for $40 on PS4 and Xbox One (physical and digital) and $30 on PS3 and Xbox 360 (digital only). In the UK, the digital-only last-gen versions will cost £25 and the next-gen editions will be priced at £35.

"Dead or Alive Last Round marks an exciting step forward for the franchise, and one that fans have been asking for,” said Yosuke Hayashi of Team Ninja.

“Bringing the game to a new generation of consoles is allowing us to create the most graphically striking version of any Dead or Alive game ever, and we are very happy to give our fans the chance to experience our signature high energy fighting entertainment as only the latest consoles can deliver it.”

Last Round's character roster is said to be the biggest of any Dead or Alive game. Fighters will include: Hayabusa, Hayate, Kasumi, Ayane, Rig, Momiji, Leon, Kokoro, Tina, Lisa, Brad Wong, Jann Lee, Hitomi, Leifang, Christie, Eliot, Leon, Gen Fu, Bayman, Bass, Zack, Helena, Marie Rose, Phase 4, and newly released Nyotengu along with Akira, Pai, Jacky and Sarah Bryant from the Virtua Fighter series.

Dear  Mr. Yosuke Hayashi,

Do you know what the fans have been asking for ?                                                                                                Make the PC version with all the DLC included !                                                                                                                That's it.

Assuming from the article without detail specified, the game is not a complete version with all DLC. Fighting games this era are all like this. Selling DLCs as a side dishes that are worth many times more than the games themselves. I wish they care for collectors a little more. Anyway, I wouldn't support incomplete games(with an exception from a handful of my favorite titles).

Now what I need to know is, will this include all the DLC costumes? Some other sources said it does.

Why not improve the cloth physics so they don't look taped on and stretch abnormally; or is 1080p60 the highlight of this gen?


No... wait... it's just a port, not a new installment...

Sites and articles like these are to be blamed for making resolution and fps to be 10 times more important than what it actually is and hence causing fanboi wars. I seriously do NOT remember at least before 2010 that resolution and fps got separate articles. Back in the day these things weren't too much of deal but these days right from cave dwelling fanbois to game sites and even game developers have become insanely crazy for framerate and resolution -_-

Graphics are good and all that but can we have a next-gen game with "next-gen" gameplay?

Oh, thank god it's 1080/60.  It would have been unacceptable otherwise....lulz.  I love how  frame rate and resolution needs to be announced in a separate article for each game now.

Mortal Kombat X, Killer Instinct, a new Tekken, Ultra Street Fighter IV and now DOA5:Final Round.

Guess I can finally put the 360 into storage.

Just need Injustice and Blazblue ChronoPhantasm to be released on X1...

I love fighting games at 60 frames per second. Street Fighter III Third Strike is still one of the best animated fighters I have ever played.

Finally, b00bs in 1080p 60fps!! The video game industry is saved.

the facebook page of tecmo says that it won't include all the costume DLCs, but you'll be able to port the ones you already bought to your ps4/xbox1.

What fans want? Are u kidding me!?!?! What happend DOA u were on top of the fighting game world next to street fighter and now look at u. Your game is failing so badly that u have to get a 90's game to help u and it only made it worse. Get rid of thoses stupid virtual fighter characters, they never deserved to be in your game. People are not going to waste money and just an updated game for the next gen and its even that good. Tecmo and Team Ninja needs to go back to the way they were, No specials, Huge Combos, Juggling, Etc....Couldn't u tell how bad Soul Calibur Lost Swords did. 

Dont copy that garbage! please bring back the fighting style of Dead Or Alive 2-4!! and DONT ADD NON DOA CHARACTERS!

i hope they use all that extra processing power on making the women's boobs more shapely and glisten so brightly with sweat that youll need shades.

So female characters have to have the size of their curves toned down and more covered, but male characters can be hulking masses in their underwear?

Look at those breasts! This is what next gen was made for! Oh and again there is a fighting game in there somewhere.

You forgot to mention that any DLC you purchased for Ultimate can be transferred to this version. So no need to worry about re-buying them...

$40? Now that's a reasonable port price! Day one.

Both 1080p/60FPS and the $40 price sounds great! Now it better have all the DLC for it too!

I am really glad to read more and more comments about how people get tired of these 1080p/60fps "news".

@IcedEarthaholic The combined cost of all of the DLC costumes and characters from the original DOA5 to the most recent DLC with Nyotengu comes up to several hundred dollars. That's a lot of money Tecmo would be losing if they give it all for free. If I'm not mistaken what they are doing is allowing players to keep the DLC costumes they bought for previous versions the same way you could transfer DOA5 costumes to DOA5U.

@VegasAceVII I know, right? While I love my PS4 and what have you, this is silly. Either way, I'll get this game. It sounds like the best deal, and at $39.99, that's a great price.

@prime_l  they don't have injustice for x1? I know they made a ps4 version so I assumed they made a x1 version.

@sanchango you do know theres a percentage of people who buy this game for the boobs (literally not joking)

@darknesservant umm what planet do you live on. doa was NEVER next to street fighter. besides if it wasn't for virtual fighter there would be no doa or tekken so team ninja added virtua fighter characters to the game to pay homage to the originator of 3d fighting games.

@EasyComeEasyGo 

Trophies or achievements? Dualshock 4 or XO controller? PS4UI or XB UI?

2 out of 3 should be the choice. PS4 will have the bigger community for sure so consider tat too if you are an online heavy gamer.

@isane-bishop  It doesn't. If it included all previous DLC I'd definitely double dip.

@neowarrior793 Oh, I know that lol
I would be more surprised if there wasn't a percentage that bought the game for just the boobs.

@illage2  Sounds like a nightmare.  I would need a gaming PC and a PC version of the game with mods in order to wake up.  Or I'd have to Elm Street it.  :)

Hmmm I'll get it on Xbox One so I can build up my library of games and thanks for your help on this :-)

@sladakrobot @daikkenaurora12 It doesnt but if the PS4 was the weaker console, then xbox gamers would be saying "look they cant even get 1080p".  Xbox gamers were so full of themselves when 360 was considered the best console.
