Dead Or Alive 5 Plus: Touch Fight Details, New Training Modes

Touchy, touchy.

Dead or Alive 5 Plus, a revamped version of last year's popular fighter from Team Ninja, is heading to the PlayStation Vita on March 19.

And in addition to "maximizing the Vita's gorgeous OLED display," triple the amount of frame data, and fantastic cross-device functionality, there will be other new and interesting features, such as the "Touch Fight" mode. This will let players swipe or tap their opponents, thereby causing their fighter to execute a series of strikes. It's done from a first-person perspective as players can hold the Vita horizontally for a full widescreen view of the arena, or vertically to get all close up and personal. You can even fire off a Critical Burst by landing a 5-hit combo, and characters will react "based on where they are touched or attacked."

There's a full range of fighting mechanics with Touch Fight. You can pinch to hold your opponent, and there's also guarding as well. If you need help mastering the new techniques available, you can check out the new training modes: There's Free Training, which is exactly what it sounds like (train however you wish) or there's Command Training, which forces you to master one move before moving on to the next.

Sounds fun, doesn't it? For more, feel free to read our recent preview.

I foresee a lot of young guys trying to hit the breasts to induce a jiggle.

Cool, touch stuff seems more like a silly perk than anything to me, but I won't complain.

This will probably be a D1P for me. I just hope it comes to PSN on launch day. I also hope it's 60fps. It had better be.

btw, the link I posted below confirms it is indeed 60FPS.

D1P baby!

Day One for me.

Off topic (though not entirely). Ben, when are you going to review that "game" on Vita PSN, where you need to use the touchscreen to rub Japanese Ladies legs... I can't decide if this is a 1 or 2 out of 10 and my indecisiveness is delaying my purchase... :-)
