Rumor: Dead or Alive 5 In Production for PS3

E-mail Print PDF

If what we’re hearing out of the European retail community is to be believed, it looks like the loss of Itagaki from Team Ninja has opened the doors for the Dead or Alive series to “broaden” it’s horizons.

Rumor: Dead or Alive 5 In Production for PS3It looks like retailers are already being made aware through distribution channels that DoA 5, the long anticipated sequel to Dead or Alive 4 on the Xbox 360 is indeed in the works as a multi-platform title. Details are still sketchy at this point (no specific platforms named), but we can assume that the 360 and PS3 are the prime candidates for the popular fighter to land on.

Typically we’d write off a rumor like this immediately, but when combined with recent news of an Xbox 360 exclusive going multi-platform, we’re kind of curious. While there’s still nothing concrete, it certainly makes sense with Xbox 360’s biggest backer (Itagaki) gone from Tecmo. The rumor is apparently getting through the distribution channels from Koei of Europe (now part of Tecmo) to retailers with Yosuke Hayashi’s name coming up as the producer.

We’re not writing this off as fake just yet, but we’re waiting for something more concrete before we get PS3 fans too excited. But with Yosuke Hayashi’s history on the PS3 (Ninja Gaiden Sigma series), we are certainly curious. We’ll keep you posted.

Tecmo won't turn their back on the cash cow of Xbox fans. PS3 owners don't even care about dead or alive.

Team Ninja used to be cool but then that PS3 fanboy took it over. It's a shame, but atleast Itagaki is opening a new studio.

If this is true i hope they take their time with it, the only truly balanced one was DOA 2 hardcore for the PS2, it had something to counter everything(even a stun recovery, which is absent in the more recent ones), and the hit detection was far better than DOA 4.

Really, Xbox fanboys are the worse plague on this planet.. Why you care if DoA becomes multi?!? You have it anyway for your beloved 360... and remember that the franchise has been for PS at the start (DoA1 PSOne, DoA2 PS2).

How you know? Your fanboy head doesn't accept the fact that PS3 owners could like the game? Or maybe you're just mad cause you're loosing the exclusivity? Yes, i guess it's for this.. sadness.

Itagaki was only a stupid bragger that hated everything besides his titles (and as we saw, coming on PS3 they got even better like NGSigma). Tecmo is cool, not Itagaki. The programmers are cool, not that idiot. But of course now that they produce games for Ps3 makes your butt burn so... i understand your xbot logic

This would make my day... I've owned both DOA and DOA2:HC and have longed for a sequel to land on a Sony Console. I own both the Ninja Gaiden Sigmas and I'd support DOA5 the minute the preorder is available!

Just wanted to point out to Argonaut that DOA DID NOT start on ps first. it was actually on Sega before any home console. (Meaning after the game was already in arcades)

Sega was actually the first to get the game everytime then PS or Xbox.

Sega Saturn DOA1

Sega Dreamcast DOA2 and DOA2LE (

Now that Itagaki the Microsoft cheerleader has gone the DOA series can finally get the success it deserves by releasing on the best console available. I would gladly welcome the DOA series back to Playstation.
