In the ever escalating war of special and collector's editions of recent releases, Tecmo Koei maybe isn't deploying the big guns in the way that say, Far Cry 3 has, the publisher along with developer Team Ninja have a very targeted strategy for a certain loyal segment of the series' audience. More on that in a second.
Besides including the game itself (naturally), the DOA 5 collector's edition will include a poster, soundtrack CD, and premium art book. The whole thing shebang come in an embossed steel case.
So what else? Playable characters? A bobble head? A tiny little Ryu Hayabusa?
C'mon, this is the DOA series, so of course it had to be a swimsuit collection for the entire female roster of characters.* No word on what kind of elaborate, weirdo alt costumes Zack will get this time around.
Dead or Alive 5 will be available September 1st for the 360 and PS3.
*By the way, three months out and the full character roster still hasn't been announced? What's that all about?
