Team Ninja has just confirmed a stack of new details for Dead or Alive 5 Plus on PlayStation Vita - including the very exciting Cross-Platform Play feature, meaning you can get your fight on with gamers playing the original Dead or Alive 5 on PlayStation 3. You'll also be able to access your saved data and in-game purchases on both Vita and PS3, meaning your progress will continue whether you play on the bus or on the couch.
There are three major focuses of cross-platform accessibility in DoA5+:
CROSS-PLATFORM GAME SAVES AND UNLOCKED CONTENT
It's not just a matter of putting identical games on different platforms, either. Team Ninja has worked on a number of system-specific features for the upcoming brawler, meaning you'll get the best experience regardless of your console of choice. DoA5+ on Vita includes touch control fighting, where characters will react based on where they are touched during a fight.
Expect new, "visually striking" international (interactive!) locations, incredibly lifelike, detailed characters, and the game's trademark "sensual yet realistic" style.
Dead or Alive 5 Plus is due out on PlayStation Vita on March 22nd, and is already available on PlayStation 3.
I like video games and music and cups of tea and noodles and beagles and colour-cycling LEDs.
