A few days ago Team Ninja announced a PS Vita port of Dead or Alive 5, with plans to release it next year. Now that time frame has been narrowed down a tad, and Dead or Alive 5 Plus will kick, punch, and bounce its way to North America in the first quarter of 2013.
Dead or Alive 5 Plus will allow players to "interact directly with the characters using the Vita's touch screens," and moves can be pulled off with taps and swipes. The port will also include a first-person view, and plans to take advantage of PS Vita's ad-hoc and infrastructure network features.
Tecmo Koei released some screenshots earlier, claiming they were from the Vita version, but later hopped on Facebook and admitted they were from the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Dead or Alive 5. They'll be releasing some more screens soon.
