DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Last Round: A Fustercluck Of DLC?

Gaming / PC / PlayStation / Xbox

Team Ninja’s latest version of Dead or Alive 5 released today for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 in the form of DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Last Round. While the game is set to feature all the content from Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate (the third version of the game), it’ll come at a cost.
For the Xbox One, two versions of the game are available: the $39.99 bundle which includes all the characters and a handful of extra costumes as well as unlocks the story mode. Then there’s the DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Last Round: Core Fighters pack for $9.99 (on sale for $4.99 currently) which includes a limited number of playable characters. While you can play online with the Core Fighters pack, you can’t play the story mode – you’ll have to pay extra to unlock that.
Now here’s where it gets confusing, according to the Dead or Alive website, there’s quite a bit of DLC included in Dead or Alive 5 Last Round – including Player’s Swimwear, Hotties Swimwear, Santa costumes, Legacy costumes, Round 3 costumes, and much more – but if you look at the description for the $40 bundle, none of it seems to be listed there. Digging a bit deeper however and there are free Costume Catalogs for DOA5LR which are “required in order to use the following costumes for Dead or Alive 5 Last Round…” – still leaving it unclear if you get access to those costumes or if you are required to pay even more for the privilege of using them.
As if that’s not bad enough, there are over 190 pieces of DLC available on the Xbox One version in the form of single characters, outfits, character packs, and even movies & music. If you were to buy the Core Fighters pack and then each character or costume separately, by my (somewhat suspect at times) math, it would cost you over $350 to get all the content in the game.
As this is the fourth iteration of the game – following Dead or Alive 5Dead or Alive 5 Plus, and Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, you’d think that it would have been released as a GOTY type bundle and include most, if not all, characters and past DLC – and perhaps the $40 version does, if you can just get past the confusing way it’s presented and the massive amounts of DLC – free and paid – listed for the game.
Oh and if that’s not enough, you can hit up the DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Last Round New Costume Pass and score an additional 78 costumes being released as monthly DLC between now and June for the low, low price of $92.
