Dead or Alive 5 Collector's Edition includes bikinis (of course)

The Dead or Alive 5 collector's edition promises to include a steel case, hardcover art book, soundtrack CD, and a "I'm a Fighter" poster. Oh, and "premium swimsuit costumes for the full cast of playable female characters in the game."

While Team Ninja attempted to go a more serious route with Ninja Gaiden 3, it appears the studio is back to its old ways with Dead or Alive 5. The busty female leads of their fighting franchise are going to be showing off their goods yet again. A GameStop-exclusive collector's edition promises to include a steel case, hardcover art book, soundtrack CD, and a "I'm a Fighter" poster. Oh, and "premium swimsuit costumes for the full cast of playable female characters in the game." The premium edition will cost $80, or $20 more than the regular game. Coupled with the game's photography mode, these costumes should yield interesting results for those that want to seek them.

Why these two are fighting, we're not sure

      I can't wait for this. DOA is the only 3D fighter that's ever caught my interest. I love the fluidity of the animations, the counters (especially in 4, which made countering more reaction based instead of the old technique of pressing counter a good three seconds before an attack came), and the chain combos.

      Here we go again. And I suppose that these bikini costumes will be made available to everyone later as paid DLC. I never used the bikini costumes much in the previous games, so I will be passing on this particular cash grab and buying the plain-ol' regular edition.

      For a second there I was worried that it came with a real bikini. Like the collector's box for the anime Najica Blitz Tactics came with a real pair of panties.
