September 2, 2014Written by Jason Dunning

Following the initial announcement over the weekend, Team Ninja and Koei Tecmo have confirmed that Dead or Alive 5 Last Round will be available in North America and Europe in Spring 2015 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. On PS4 and Xbox One, Last Round will cost $39.99/£34.99 (physical and digital), with the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions priced at $29.99/£24.99 (digital only).

With Last Round representing the “zenith of the Dead or Alive 5 series,” Koei Tecmo says it will include “the best and brightest content from those games, along with all-new content only found in Last Round, creating the comprehensive Dead or Alive 5 experience.”

Calling it the “most graphically impressive version of a Dead or Alive game ever seen, Koei Tecmo adds:

The combatants in Dead or Alive 5 Last Round will present an unparalleled level of life-like detail, and smooth striking animations that will firmly place every fighter in the heat of the moment. The game’s dynamic interactive stages once again boast a range of visually striking locations from around the world, while offering even more destruction, deadly new danger zones and a higher level of strategic choices for players to utilize in the quest for victory.

Team Ninja Leader Yosuka Hayashi spoke about Last Round:

Dead or Alive 5 Last Round marks an exciting step forward for the franchise, and one that fans have been asking for. Bringing the game to a new generation of consoles is allowing us to create the most graphically striking version of any Dead or Alive game ever, and we are very happy to give our fans the chance to experience our signature high energy fighting entertainment as only the latest consoles can deliver it.
