Dead or Alive 5 available now

Boobies! Or is it so much more?

Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja's Dead or Alive 5 (DoA 5) is now (Sept. 25) available in North America. The game garnered some mixed review thus far, IGN gave the new fighter an 8.8 while Gamespot felt 7.5 was the right score. Game Informer went with a significantly lower 6.0 score.

DoA 5 producer Yosuke Hayashi has made it clear pre-release that his goal was to make the game more about the fighting and less about sex appeal. Adding swimsuits didn't exactly help the quest, but I don't think anyone is complaining.

The publishers behind DoA 5 didn't win many fans over with their Online Pass, but with goodies like this who can stay mad at them? Throw in a Collector's Edition of this game and you've got the biggest DoA release to date. Watch BloodBurger unbox the set, after the jump.
