Oh no! Zack didn't look completely ridiculous. Thankfully, Team Ninja's on the case with the fist DLC for their fighter, featuring new costumes for several of the returning fighters and new threads for the SEGA additions to the roster.
Many of the costumes appear to be the standard or 2P versions of the characters' clothing from earlier DOA titles, so no real surprises here. I can imagine the flashier stuff showing up in future, likely paid DLC, though.
From the developer:
Today Team NINJA released downloadable content for the new generation of DEAD OR ALIVE combat, DEAD OR ALIVE 5, which is now available at retailers worldwide on PlayStation® 3 and Xbox 360®. Available now for free download via the PlayStation®Store and Xbox LIVE® Marketplace, Costume Pack 1 opens up a variety of new costumes that add even more flash and sizzle to select fighters on the DOA 5 roster. To showcase the new downloadable content, Team NINJA has created all-new screenshots featuring the characters in their new costumes.
Among the staple DEAD OR ALIVE characters who see updated threads courtesy of Costume Pack 1: Kokoro, who gets a new festival outfit; Zack, with a new alien costume; Helena, who reveals her swallowtail outfit; and Bayman, rocking a new beret. The master Gen Fu steps out in his new Tiger Kung Fu uniform, Christie gets even hotter in her new leather gear, Tina dons a new blue ring outfit, and the all-new character Mila takes on a little cosplay. Even the included Virtua Fighter™ characters, Akira, Sarah and Pai, see a whole new round of costume updates, and all free of charge!
