Dead or Alive 5 Costume Pack will be free

Put away your wallet.

Dead or Alive 5 (DoA 5) was released at the end of last month. There's been plenty of news to spread on the game since its release such as infinites and how the game maintained its sex appeal. Now, Team Ninja is serving up a doozy.

The official Twitter account of Team Ninja (via Cadaveri) has revealed a DoA 5 DLC costume pack will be available free of charge. With Namco Bandai giving away all Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (TTT2) DLC for free, Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja are hoping to gains some points with their own fans.

"As gratitude to everyone who purchased a DOA5, today I have to prepare the DLC free of charge. Please wait for further news. # DOA5"

Fernando's POV: I've been critical of Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja for utilizing an Online Pass, but this is a smart move on their part. It benefits DoA 5 gamers as they will receive free content, while the publisher and developer look good providing the DLC for nothing in return.
