Tecmo Koei America today detailed the preorder incentive and Collector’s Edition version for Dead or Alive 5, which will ship on September 25, 2012. Created by Team Ninja, Dead or Alive 5 is coming off a strong showing at E3 where it was nominated for several awards, including “Best Fighting Game” by the official awards of E3, the Game Critics Awards.
Players who preorder Dead or Alive 5 at GameStop or Amazon will get an exclusive set of in-game bunny-style swimsuits for three female characters. At GameStop purchasers will get a ‘DOA Angels’ set of white swimsuits for Kasumi, Leifang, and Hitomi, while Amazon players will get a set of three ‘DOA Devils’ black swimsuits for Christie, Tina, and Ayane.
Available exclusively at GameStop, the game’s Collector’s Edition is packaged in a first-class embossed steel case that keeps the precious goods inside safe. Along with the game, players get premium swimsuit costumes for DOA5’s full cast of playable female characters. An exclusive hardcover art book details the game’s lush imagery and the game’s stirring soundtrack CD lets fans experience the music of DOA even when they’re away from the game. Finally, a full-color poster of the DOA5 cast tops off the deluxe package of items. Dead or Alive 5 will be available for an MSRP of $59.99 for the regular edition and $79.99 for the Collector’s Edition on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
