Dead or Alive 5 – Cross-Platform Updates and Screenshots

By
Posted on January 17, 2013 AT 03:13pm

Cross-device functionality was a promise that Team Ninja delivered some time ago in regards to their upcoming release of Dead or Alive 5.  But fans have no need to puzzle and wonder over how the PS Vita and PlayStation 3 titles will work together any longer! Below is a section of the press release sent out to give fans a better idea of the cross-platform interactions

CROSS-PLATFORM PLAY

* Hardware icons will appear next to player names in cross-platform battles to indicate whether they are playing on PS3 or PS Vita

* Cross-platform battles will run at 60fps on both platforms so there will be no lag or slowdown even when playing on different devices
* All characters that have been unlocked on PS3 can be used on PS Vita—and vice versa
* In-game rankings will show whether players are on PS Vita or PS3
CROSS-PLATFORM DLC
* Using the PS Store, DLC purchases will be shared across both platforms so players can pay a single price while getting dual platform use
* Over 100 costumes have been delivered to date as DLC, and the cross-platform transfer allows players to preserve their collection while getting new gameplay options with DEAD OR ALIVE 5 PLUS on PS Vita
CROSS-PLATFORM GAME SAVES AND UNLOCKED CONTENT
* Saved games on PS Vita or PS3 can be used on the other platform, so gamers can play on the go and then bring their progress back to the console (or vice versa)
* All unlocked content on one platform is available on the other platform; for instance, Tina’s Legend Swimsuit earned by completing Legend mode in Arcade mode without continuing will be available on PS3 if earned on PS Vita
* Any new stages for DOA5 on PS3, will also be available on DEAD OR ALIVE 5 PLUS for PS Vita
And for your viewing pleasure we’ve also taken the liberty of sharing some new screenshots with you so you see how the two platforms work together.
