Dead or Alive 5 confirmed for PS Vita

Team Ninja has confirmed that Dead or Alive 5 will be punching its way on to PlayStation Vita in early 2013.

Retitled Dead or Alive 5 Plus, the busty brawler will likely include several additional features for its Sony handheld debut, details of which have yet to be divulged.

Speaking in a video statement over the weekend, Team Ninja’s Yosuke Hayashi commented: “We plan to release Dead or Alive 5 Plus on the PlayStation Vita at an early stage of next year.”

"DOA5’s arrival on a new hardware will bring new players to the existing communities and for our loyal and core fans like everyone gathered today can now practice and brush up their skills anywhere they want."

"Be assured that features which are appealing as the DOA5 Plus name reads are planned,” he added.
