Earlier today, Koei Tecmo announced that its free-to-play version of fighting game Dead or Alive 5 has surpassed 5 million downloads worldwide. However, one thing to note here is that the number of downloads include ‘Ultimate’ and ‘Last Round’ as well.
To celebrate the success, Koei Tecmo has announced that everyone who owns a copy of the game — whether the retail version or a free-to-play version — will receive a free costume for Ayane and Kasumi each.
The costumes in discussion are designed by Mangaka TamikI WakakI — a Japanese manga artist who is most notable for his manga series; The World God Only Knows. However, there is little catch. According to the publisher, the free costumes for Ayane and Kasumi will only be available on Xbox One and Playstation 4 versions of the game.
Dead or Alive 5: Last Round Core Fighters — Core Fighters went free-to-play on Xbox One last week and includes most game modes and the ability to play online, but the Story Mode is locked and there are only a handful characters to choose from. The additional characters and the Story Mode, however, can be purchased separately:
This is a free version which allows use of most game modes, including online play. However, only a limited number of playable characters are available, and Story Mode is locked. Other characters and Story Mode are available as separate downloadable content purchases.
