Team Ninja had previously said that the new Dead Or Alive 5 Plus will feature “cross-platform matches and shared saved data and in-game purchases” Well here’s the explanation on how that will work.
For me this game is all about boobs, hell they even released a beach volleyball version so that their characters who usually wear skimpy outfits and fight could wear even SKIMPIER outfits and play volleyball. . . . . lets just say that there were probably a lot of teenagers who didn’t buy that game for the gameplay. So with that in mind lets get the boob shot out the way right now.
Right now that’s done we can get onto the serious side of this post (if there is such a thing with this game). As the game’s March 22nd launch approaches, the developer is finalizing its strategy to give players a seamless Dead or Alive 5 experience across console and handheld platforms while delivering maximum value.
1 Hardware icons will appear next to player names in cross-platform battles to indicate whether they are playing on PS3 or PS Vita
2 Cross-platform battles will run at 60fps on both platforms so there will be no lag or slowdown even when playing on different devices
3 All characters that have been unlocked on PS3 can be used on PS Vita—and vice versa
4 In-game rankings will show whether players are on PS Vita or PS3
1 Using the PS Store, DLC purchases will be shared across both platforms so players can pay a single price while getting dual platform use
2 Over 100 costumes have been delivered to date as DLC, and the cross-platform transfer allows players to preserve their collection while getting new gameplay options with Dead Or Alive 5 Plus on PS Vita
CROSS-PLATFORM GAME SAVES AND UNLOCKED CONTENT
1 Saved games on PS Vita or PS3 can be used on the other platform, so gamers can play on the go and then bring their progress back to the console (or vice versa)
2 All unlocked content on one platform is available on the other platform; for instance, Tina’s Legend Swimsuit earned by completing Legend mode in Arcade mode without continuing will be available on PS3 if earned on PS Vita
3 “Any new stages for DOA5 on PS3, will also be available on Dead Or Alive 5 Plus for PS Vita”
(sorry couldn’t resist)
