Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate coming to Japanese Arcades, new character to be added

Consoles are enjoying Dead or Alive 5 now, but soon the Arcades will enter the fray. Head inside for the details.

And they say Arcades are dead. Nonsense!

For years the Dead or Alive franchise has been played on consoles from the PlayStation era, to the Xbox 360 and PS3 generation. Unfortunately for those in Japan, a Dead or Alive Arcade version hasn't been seen since the second title back in 1999.

That will soon change.

Tecmo Koei (via Siliconera) has revealed that Sega will be distributing Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate Arcade in Japan this winter. The Arcade version will be receiving an additional character. No word on if this character will remain an exclusive or if he/she will be on the console versions eventually.
