Tecmo Koei Formally Reveals DOA5 Plus and Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus For PS Vita

The head of Team Ninja may have let the cat out of the bag this past weekend, but Tecmo Koei have “officially” announced the forthcoming PlayStation Vita arrival of the Dead or Alive franchise.  Presented in a package that will be familiar to DOA fans, Vita owners will be able to experience Dead or Alive 5 Plus, a rather straightforward port that is adding a few tricks into it’s existing repertoire. 

Dead Or Alive 5 Is Set To Appear On The PlayStation Vita

The argument can still be made that the PlayStation Vita is lacking in the games department, though it can’t be said the handheld is sorely lacking when it comes to providing games in the fighting genre. With entries in the Mortal Kombat, Marvel vs. Capcom, and BlazBlue franchises being on Sony’s powerful handheld, the options are there for gamers wishing to enjoy a bout of combat.  A Tekken installment on the Vita may still be off the cards for now, but the over-the-top brawler that is Dead or Alive is soon set to arrive on the handheld.

Keiji Inafune's Yaiba Revealed As Ninja Gaiden Spin-Off

The 2012 installment of the Tokyo Game Show has officially kicked off more or less thanks to Sony’s dull if slightly predictable press conference.  In some ways TGS has always been known as a PlayStation centric event, but the show is far from being a complete dud as of now. While announcements will be made and new reveals of existing games will be shown, we do have our first true surprise of the show thanks to Keiji Inafune and the folks over at Tecmo Koei.

Dead or Alive and Virtua Fighter Meet In An Unlikely Way

Seeing two popular fighting game franchises cross-over seems to be hot thing to do these days since we're on the heels of Street Fighter X Tekken and will likely see the first glimpse of Tekken X Street Fighter at E3 this year. The fighting genre in general has gotten a nice boost as of late with titles such as Marvel vs. Capcom paving the way for mainstream appeal and now we could be on the cusp of a new wave of fighting games featuring iconic franchises duking it out. No, we're still not going to receive Street Fighter Vs.

The Long In Development And Slightly Forgotten Action Epic Ni-Oh Is Still In Development

In news that I think no one saw coming, Tecmo Koei has revealed that work on the action game Ni-Oh is still underway.  Most of you out there must be asking what the hell Ni-Oh is since it’s a game that hasn’t been shown in the past year or so.  Well if you’ve been around the block for a while, you may remember Ni-Oh as the first “next-gen” game Koei unveiled, way back at E3 2005.

Ninja Gaiden 3 To Offer Our First Taste Of Dead or Alive 5

Ninja Gaiden 3 is a game that gamers want to be good but so far have had a hard time being impressed by. Personally I’m excited for the new adventures of Ryu Hayabusa, even if it doesn’t involve the ability to chop the head of an opposing ninja.  The more gritty tone of Ninja Gaiden 3 may seem unnecessary but at the end of the day I think we’re going to get the same ninja action and somewhat convoluted story we expect from a Ninja Gaiden game, therefore good times are ahead.

New Ninja Action Is Abound In These Ninja Gaiden 3 Screens and Video

Despite whatever fads may have surfaced throughout the year’s ninjas are still cool and Ninja Gaiden 3 is proof of that.  The new folks heading up Team Ninja may have a different vision of what fast and bloody ninja action should be, but at the end of the day it’s still going to be fast and bloody ninja action – which I think it’s safe to say all gamers love.

Latest Ninja Gaiden 3 Screenshots Have Blood, Dudes With Glowing Hands, and More Blood

Ninja Gaiden 3 hasn’t left fans of the series as angry as the Devil May Cry reboot has, but to some the changes made to the Ninja Gaiden formula have been too drastic. Leading man Ryu may not look like he’s the world’s most proficient meth based martial artist, but the sudden tonal shift Ninja Gaiden 3 has undergone (more grit, less colorful fantasy worlds) has people longing for the return of former Team Ninja head Tomonobu Itagaki.

More Martial Arts Mayhem Is Abound In This New Dead or Alive 5 Clip

This may be a bit late to the party based on when the initial reveal was, but Tecmo Koei have finally released the full version of the Dead or Alive 5 premier trailer. Announced last month at the Tokyo Game Show, the reveal of a new DOA entry wasn’t too surprising but what did take gamers aback was the new direction the title is taking which has been dubbed “fighting entertainment” by members of Team Ninja.

Ninja Gaiden 3 Gets Serious In This New Trailer + New Game Details

Thanks to the Tokyo Game Show kicking off this week we’re getting a bunch of new info on existing titles and reveals for brand spanking new titles.  It wouldn’t be a proper TGS without a little bit of ninja action and thankfully Tecmo Koei is happy to oblige with some new info concerning Ninja Gaiden 3, the latest chapter in the ever popular game in which the series is undergoing a slight focus shift of sorts.
