dead or alive 5 last round 2015-01-27

Koei Tecmo announced on Dead or Alive 5 Last Round‘s Steam page that the PC version of the game has been delayed. Last Round was originally intended for a February 17 release on Steam, but this has been changed to March 30.

As an apology, Koei Tecmo will give PC gamers the Halloween 2013 costumes free of charge with a purchase of the game.

The statement ended with a reminder that online modes for Dead or Alive 5 Last Round will be added to the game within three months of its release.

In case you missed it, we have 20 minutes of Last Round gameplay here.

Dead or Alive 5 Last Round is launching on other platforms (Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360) on February 17 in North America, February 19 in Japan, and February 20 in Europe.

    I really hope that people have found out that delays are usually for the better at this point.

    I can only hope this means it’ll get more time to be optimized and they work hard on that online mode. This delay doesn’t inspire confidence since they keep remaining mute on details.nI wouldn’t have been able to play it on the 17th anyway, I’d be too busy with monster hunter 4.

    Quite excellent. Though to be fair I haven’t had a ps3 for a few years so my memory of the ps3 version in comparison to the vita version is fuzzy

    Releasing a FG (a port no less) in 2015 without online modes? May as well just write the game off now. What the hell are they playing at?

    what about the Pre-order incentive rewards? 2015 Ninjas, Aloha Costumes and Beach Party Costumes? They remove it from their Steam Store.
