UPDATE: Collector's Edition contents laid bare.
UPDATE: Tecmo Koei has sent over a shot of the Dead or Alive 5 Collector's Edition, revealing all of the extra content you'll receive in the box.
You can also get a glimpse of the girls in their 'premium' swimsuits here. You know, if that's what does it for you.
ORIGINAL STORY: Tecmo Koei has announced the Dead or Alive 5 Collector's Edition for Europe.
In addition to a copy of the game, the Collector's Edition also features an exclusive artbook, soundtrack CD and a collection of "bunny-style swimsuits" for the game's leading ladies to wear.
That's in addition to the game's pre-bundled translucent clothing.
Calm down, fellas.
"To celebrate the release of Dead or Alive 5, Team Ninja announced the simultaneous release of an exciting Collector's Edition, including a rich content of tangible and in-game items that will enhance the gaming experience," read a post on Tecmo Koei Europe's website.
Here's the full list of content included in the Collector's Edition:
- The Dead or Alive 5 game
- a set of premium swimsuits for the full cast of playable female characters
- an exclusive hardcover art book detailing the game’s rich imagery
- the CD soundtrack
- a full-colour poster of the DOA5 cast
- all in a high-quality embossed metal case
It's not yet known where you'll be able to pick up a copy of the Collector's Edition or how much it'll set you back.
However, if you don't fancy splashing the cash on the CE, the post also suggests that the swimsuit DLC may be available as a pre-order bonus.
"In addition, fans who pre-order the game can choose between two exclusive sets of in-game bunny-style swimsuits: the 'DOA Angels' set of white swimsuits for Kasumi, Leifang, and Hitomi, or the 'DOA Devils' black swimsuits for Christie, Tina, and Ayane."
Team Ninja told us during E3 that it had "no plans" to release additional character DLC for DOA5.
