Tecmo Koei has revealed new details (thanks VG247
) for their upcoming 2013 release of Dead or Alive 5 Plus, a PlayStation Vita exclusive title, with features such as optional touch based attacking and vertical first-person play making use of the Vita's unique design.
Touch Play Mode: Experience battles in DEAD OR ALIVE 5 PLUS through two new styles of touch combat with the PS Vita held vertically in portrait mode to get a first-person, full-screen view of your opponent at maximum size. In Mode 1, tap the opponent to attack them in that spot. In Mode 2, touch, flick, and pinch the screen to attack your opponent with more finesse and options. Both methods offer players an instinctive way to fight while seeing their opponent in the highest graphic detail.
The fast-paced fighter also boasts a new "Training Plus Mode" that will help build skills but also help those like myself who aren't quite as talented in the fighting scene. The new Plus title will also feature Cross Play between the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3.
Dead or Alive 5 Plus will be available on March 22nd 2013. You can check out the latest screenshots below that show off the vertical play and also the detailed frame data that apparently has three times the detail then console releases.
