Leaked DOA5 image proves its on PS3

Blackxino blogger claims he obtained a leaked image of supposed Dead or Alive 5, and also proving it's on the PlayStation 3 system.

It does make sense since Capcom/Namco announced a new Street Fighter game versus Tekken and Tokyo Game Show is also near it's time.

yes, he'll probably go mental.

What will the DOA fans think? they are already saying DOA and NG are rubbish without Itagaki.

who cares, this is what we all wanted all along! A new DOA5!

Darkstorn3187d ago

Nice. There's always room for more fighting games in my book (now give me Soul Calibur 5)...

RedPawn3187d ago

Bubs from the 1-up pub.

Noctis Aftermath3187d ago

The picture is really bad quality, but if this turns out to be true then cool, but not so cool for the DoA5 team.

GWAVE3187d ago

PS3: it only steals former exclusives.

rockleex3187d ago

DOA X Virtua Fighter?

Or Mortal Kombat X Killer Instinct?

NarooN3187d ago

Exclusive? The series existed before the Xbox was even a thought. The first DOA came out on the PS1, and an updated version of DOA2 called DOA2: Hardcore came out on PS2. Do research next time before you troll.

Commander_TK3187d ago

we´ve had it b4 and lost the Tekken series

Dragun6193187d ago (Edited 3187d ago )

I noticed TecmoKoei is shifting towards the PS3 more after Itagaki left.

They released Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 & Warriors Orochi Z for PS3 and releasing Trinity: Zill O'll Zero as a PS3 exclusive and the used to be a PS3 exclusive Quantum Theory. Wouldn't surprise me if they announce Dead or Alive 5 at TGS this year as mulitplatform.

blackbeld3187d ago

finally DOA series back to the Playstation family!

vsr3187d ago

This will be a perfect decision of tecmokoei. This will help to increase their revenue.

Daver3187d ago


I think the world will end if they make Mortal Kombat X Killer instinct.
That would be an awesome game!

Reibooi3187d ago (Edited 3187d ago )

I'm willing to bet money that this is fake. However I am also willing to bet money that the next DOA IS indeed coming to PS3. It makes perfect sense now that Itagaki is gone and they have already made 2 Ninja Gaiden games on the PS3 and DOA is technically a bigger franchise so it would make perfect sense to release that on PS3 as well.

Anyway signs to the game being fake is that the character model for Kokoro is exactly the same as her DOA 4 incarnation with no changes at all meaning they just photo shopped her in. The menu is the same as DOA 4 only now it's going from top to bottom instead of left to right(also why be showing Kokoro in a menu selection screen?) The Chronos thing also makes it likely to be a fake as that game is more then likely done with now that Itagaki is gone and there is no way it would be added in as a extra mode as Itagaki said what he wanted it to be was quite a large action adventure game. Team Ninja isn't the type to throw in a random extra mode like Namco does in Tekken or Soul Calibur.

I would like to see the game be PS3 exclusive(no chance of that i would assume) Because the DOA games have always looked really impressive but I'm pretty sure the jump won't be as big if it's multi plat. If it was PS3 exclusive they could get it looking closer to the CG in the series as opposed to looking the exact same way DOA4 did with new characters and what not added.

AAACE53186d ago

I think most people knew this game would go back to multi. The good thing is that it looks like they will include Cronus in the game.

For those of you who are uninformed (which most of you are), DOA: Code cronus was suppose to be a stand alone DOA story game.

darthv723186d ago

knew it was coming. Now the tough part. Do I keep the series going on 360 or start it on ps3.

I have the firat on saturn, the second on dreamcast and then the doa combo of 1 & 2 on xbox along with DoA 3. DoA 4 on 360. I may just get 5 on ps3 so that each one has a DOA to play.

It will depend on the exclusive content each has to offer.

how can one even tell that is DOA5? On top of that, it's from a random blog who writes like this:

"To bad I'm not a journalist so therefore I can't contact Tecmo Koei about this.
If you are a journalist, do me (us readers) a favour and get in touch with PR of TK-A/TKE about this image.

I really don't care much about DOA, all I care about is Ninja Gaiden so while you are at this site, support it please:P "

how man grammatical and spelling errors did you spot? Because I spotted a lot.

yeah, this is totally legit.

izuna3187d ago (Edited 3187d ago )

Don't get distracted, the post is only about the images. Xino's blog can get content from anywhere, and you would expect leaks to only on unofficial sites or forums anyway. Grammatical errors doesn't change an image; I'm not saying you should believe in the Rumour based on the images.

EDIT: Holy shit those updated images reveal that these are completely bullshit; look at the background in the Kokoro image to the left. This shows that the image is taken from one of the Dead or Alive 4 Promotional Pictures; and the little bubble to the left of that is a darkened icon from Xtreme 2. I'm sure something like this happened for the supposed Ninja Gaiden III shit as well. If the Ninja Gaiden III thing also came from this blog, I think moderators should look into it, possibly getting it flagged.

2nd EDIT: Yeah, the Ninja Gaiden III bullshit came from the same site, which was already proven fake. This 'xino' sure knows how to get "leaked images" from either some troll or himself.

Blaze9293187d ago

told you. but noooo one wants to listen to me. just hit the disagree button.

Godmars2903187d ago

Started in the arcade, moved to the Dreamcast then the Playstation and Xbox. Making no real improvements in play mechanics or even graphics. Nothing exceptionally notable to any one platform.

Now its truly gone multi while Itagaki tries to start another franchise with his own company. A multiplatform franchise at that. Why should he care about something he now has no control over when has to prove himself? Prove the stupid ego that kept him on one console?

DFresh3187d ago

DOA (Arcade/PS1)
DOA2 (Sega Dreamcast)
DOA2: Hardcore (PS2)
DOA3 (Xbox)
DOA: Ultimate (Xbox)
DOA4 (Xbox 360)

Now you have DOA5 which is guaranteed to be multiplatform between PS3/Xbox 360.

Though I still find it strange that many DOA games have been exclusive up until this point where it changed to being multiplatform which is good.

DelbertGrady3187d ago

"they are already saying DOA and NG are rubbish without Itagaki."

Well, have you seen Quantum Theory? That's kind of in the lines of what I'd expect out of a Tecmo game with no Itagaki.

Gago3187d ago (Edited 3187d ago )

1. Tecmo not a dev, its a publisher

2. Itagaki was part of team ninja (devs)

3. Quantum Theory is made by another tecmo studio (not team ninja)

4. Yes, Team Ninja will not be the same without Itagaki, this DOA and the NG sigma 2 they made are Itagaki's games, just with better graphics and more content, the new team hasn't shown anything new

19423187d ago (Edited 3187d ago )

both ninja gaiden sigma and sigma 2(the games itagaki didn't work on) were better on the ps3 then the 360 version(the one itagaki worked on) so if anything the company is bettr without him. 360 fanboys will deny it because team ninja will be making more ps3 games and probably better games on the ps3 then when they only worked on the 360.

ukilnme3187d ago (Edited 3187d ago )

@ 1942

"both ninja gaiden sigma and sigma 2(the games itagaki didn't work on) were better on the ps3 then the 360 version(the one itagaki worked on) so if anything the company is bettr without him."

You do realize that Ninja Gaiden Sigma was a retooled Xbox 1 game right? I have played both versions and the difficulty was dumbed down for the Sigma version. I'll pretend for you that it was better because what else should be expected, it came out years after the original.

As for NG2 and NGS2 comparisons, I can't compare them because I only played NG2 but from what I saw of NGS2 I may give it the edge because of the additional content. Again, NGS2 had the benefit of coming a year or so after NG2 so it should have been the better game.

I know PS3 fanboys such as you have to believe everything is superior on the PS3 so go ahead and stay in fantasy land. You guys have been there so long anyway.

19423187d ago

the only ones in fantasy land are you 360 fanboy clowns . it doesn't matter if it came out a year later or not this idiot said the games wouldn't be as good with out itagaki and i showed proof they can do better without him. instead of reacting like the fanboy you are how about you use your little pea brain next time.

crzyjackbauer3187d ago

Itagaki is a selfish bastard
after playing doax2 i can surely say he sucks
i played ng1 and ng2 but doax2 was craptacular
and as far as DOA fighting games, they suck seriously who the hell plays them? the only selling point is the hot chicks but the game blows

ps3 fans you can go ahead an keep this one
i rather it be a ps3 exclusive

IdleLeeSiuLung3187d ago (Edited 3187d ago )

NG2 was significantly better on the Xbox 360 due to the difficulty level.

NGS2 had issues like the timing was off on the button inputs, the dumbed down enemies and the fewer enemies on screen. Graphics was improved, but what the heck happened to all the blood? The extra characters was boring, but I do appreciate the co-op that is somewhat finicky (read lag infested). I hardly think that is the better version.

NGS had inconsistent quality due to being a port of the original Xbox game. The feel of the game was also changed, i.e. hit distance and movement etc... It felt like a lousy port despite the graphics advantage. I would rather play the original NG Black.

Solidus187-SCMilk3187d ago (Edited 3187d ago )

1942, that ninja gaiden sigma 1 and 2 are PORTS of the games ITAGAKI made. they just added extra content.

saying they can do better without him, and using HIS games as an example is moronic.

Sure itagaki himself didnt port the games, but the team that did it already had COMPLETE games to work off of. And those complete games were made by itagaki.

Anyways, Im excited to see DOA 5 and NG3, even without itagaki working on them.

ukilnme3187d ago

@ 1942

Seems as though you can't see the forest through the trees!

mastiffchild3186d ago

@idle-I agree with bits of what you say here but, also, you're being unfair and ignoring the one MASSIVE improvement from NG2 to Sigma and that's ytthe camera. The enemies weren't dumbed down at all it's just that, imho, having played both and as a fan of Itigaki's work(though NOT the man)Sigma just allowed me to play the game as he probably had intended-with a little more precison. With the excess gore toned down(why put in the stupid purple crap though?)-and to me it had just gone a bit too far and alongside THAT bloody camera(which, as they could fix it for Sigma why on EARTH didn't they patch us 360 owners in a fix as well-makes a big difference to the game)just made seeing exactly what you were slicing and dicing a bit blurred/hidden.

I think removing those two made the game seem a little ewasier but mainly because you could now see what you were doing better-certainly didn't feel like the enemies were any dimmer to me!

Agree with most of your stuff on Black/Sigma1, mind, though I wouldn't call it awful as a port and as an introduction to the series it was possibly a much better choice than Black would be, no?

We're yet to see, like with Kojima's Rising team, whether the other guys at TN can do well without Itigaki to be fair and calling it either way is a bit rash just yet. Could even be that the team was giving Itigaki the confidence to make the games he did-you never know and if his new team is great we might now have TWO teams willing and able to create similarly great games. Isn't that what we all really want? For now, though, all TN have done post Itigaki is retool his games for another platform and add content that, for all we know, may have just been cut from the original for time or space reasons-in short Itigaki may well have created most of that too, who knows?

Whatever, NG and DOA are hardly 360 only titles and the next in both series will be multiplats for sure and we can only hope someone with the same talent and passion takes them up for us. Be good to see what the man himself comes up with after a change of scenery-always does my creative side the world of good to shake things up anyway.

@Soda-what's QT got to do with it? IMHO that game is a Japanese developer doing the fashionable thing of copying a successful western theme in a successful genre in the west and nothing more. Sure, they get grief for it cloning Gears but there's enough in the Art Nouveaux backdrops and co-op attacks(you know what I mean) to suggest a bit of Japanese flair is in there somewhere. It might not be the horror story we all fear you know! If they have a good story and the characters aren't the kind of schmucks we can't relate to then it's still got a good chance of becoming a sleeper even if it's never broken the level of average in anything we've yet to see. Isn't anything to do with this or TN or Iti though.

IdleLeeSiuLung3185d ago

I never really noticed the camera was better on NGS2... perhaps it was better and that is why I never noticed it. Then again I always manually control the camera.

The only thing I noticed was that the camera is now further behind Ryu.

Overall, I was not impressed with NGS2 as I felt it was just a bunch of trade offs. Upgraded graphics, but fewer enemies. I would rather they focus on game play first and foremost.

I love NG series and hope that the new Team Ninja doesn't F it up.

Really want another DOA still play 4 time to time but if its on PS3 it will be great so i can play my m8 online :D

Tekken and Soul Calibur FTW
But will give DOA5 a try :)

NewZealander3186d ago

im betting this is fake, for one reason.

look at the characters hair on the character select screen, its still the horrible dredlock hair from the last game, surely they would have fixed this after all this time?

Krimmson3186d ago (Edited 3186d ago )

Hate to say it (not really), but DoA was crap to begin with. NG is pretty good though.

takohma3187d ago

I hope they change those simple game mechanics. It was too easy to counter people. But still a fun game. Not really competitive though like Tekken or sf 3rd strike. Man I miss that game

ActionBastard3187d ago

I agree. In some online matches, the first 5 seconds were just the sounds of the player's character making their counter "hi-yah!" sound. Still fun like you said, but that definitely needs tweaked, even for SP.

izuna3187d ago

DOA isn't all about countering, you can stagger out of hit-stun to allow yourself to block. I think it's pretty competitive, I used to watch tournaments of it.

wages of sin3187d ago

The term "easy to learn, hard to master" comes to mind. DOA is much more than simple countering.
