'Tis the season to be jolly - and Team Ninja plans to embrace the Christmas cheer by releasing a new wave of Xmas-themed DLC for Dead or Alive 5.

The three new costume packs, available to download now on Xbox LIVE Marketplace and next week on PlayStation Store, see a selection of the DOA5 girls dressed in skimpy Santa outfits, and the guys dressed as Old Saint Nick himself.

The Nice Girls Pack contains Santa costumes for Kasumi, Hitomi and Leifang, while the Naughty Girls Pack offers up outfits for Ayane, Christie and Tina.

Meanwhile, the Lil' Santas Pack features Santa costumes for six of the DOA5 guys: Hayabusa, Jann Lee, Bayman, Bass, Hayate and Akira.

Each pack costs 240 Microsoft Points, or you can pick up the full set for 640 Microsoft Points.

And before you ask, we're not entirely sure why the Lil' Santas pack offers more content for the same price, either...

The packs will be available to download on PlayStation 3 next Wednesday, December 19 for £2.39 each, or £6.49 for the full set. Alternatively, if you don't want to spend any money on seeing them all dressed up in Santa outfits, head through to our image gallery.

Don't expect this to be the last wave of content released for Dead or Alive 5, either. Additional content is expected to be delivered early in the new year via a "feature expanding patch".
