Here it is, the E3 DOA5 Ultimate trailer!!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SgMQQZCD5fs

A lot of people are skeptical about getting 5 Ultimate since it's just the 5th game with tweaks made to it, but I'm super excited. This is the one series where I buy every game. The only ones I don't have are the very original two games, Paradise, and 5 Plus. Plus, I can see that there is enough of a difference between 5 and 5 Ultimate to make 5 Ultimate, for me, worth it.

Saves from DOA5 will carry over, DLC will carry over, the Tutorial and Combo Challenge modes from 5+ will be available, new costumes, characters, and stages are featured, and some DLC will come automatically with the game but will have to be unlocked (as usual). Okay, so if you've already purchased some or all DLC this doesn't benefit you, but here is the list of DLC that comes with the game.

Click on Features, then scroll down and click on Costumes Included in DOA5 Ultimate

Also, DOA5 Ultimate Core Fighters will be made available along side 5 Ultimate. It's a free download that comes with Kasumi, Ayane, Hayabusa, and Hayate. You can purchase additional characters and story mode, but all stages and costumes (other than DLC) are available with the download. Here is the page I found on Core Fighters:

Looks like it's PS3 only.

I'm really interested to see how the free to play model will work with this. I'm glad they're taking a chance on it.

I'm with you on this is the series I pick all of them up, and my experience with DOA5 was burned though because of gamestop being a bunch of morons so I never finished the story let alone bought any of the dlc cause I never played it. I skipped on 5+ because my vita just cant hold anymore data and I do NOT want to pay for a memory card, and the additions look like they may be worth it. There's what, 4 new characters added now? Jacky, Momiji, Rachel and Leon? Honestly Jacky was a big sell to me because he was my favorite Virtua Fighter.

They'd sold my collectors edition I reserved, and kept telling me they'd have one tommorow.

I finally got it a week and a half later.

Dude, that's so lame!

I have the collector's edition too. I also ran into problems with it. My boyfriend bumped our Xbox and scratched the disc to the point where it didn't work anymore. Luckily, I had the warranty and they replaced it for free, but he was in trouble for that one. It was only about a week after I got it too.

I've heard and seen horror stories about what an xbox will do to a disc if you've touched it. Thankfully I never ran into that kinda problem!......My whole xbox just died at one point.

But back on topic, DOA5 Ultimate, yea gonna get it most likely. Have you seen the crazy limited editions they have over in Japan?

I have not. On the one hand, it would be cool to have collector's editions in the US as long as they come with more/different stuff than what DOA5 came with, but at the same time I don't need to spend that kind of money...

And I though $80 for my collector's edition was a lot! The Kasumi one is totally a reference to the Kasumi-chan blue Xbox.



I've always wanted this. Too bad it was very limited, and is now super old.

So I haven't had a chance to like look at any videos after Tuesday.....but I would imagine they made Rachel out to be a heavy hitter, is this the case? (I can't watch those now cause I'm at work.)

It seems as though she's not quite as quick as like Kasumi or Ayane, but doesn't hit quite as hard as Tina or Bass. It seems she's somewhere in between, on the same level as Bayman and Leon.
