Dead or Alive 5 is getting free costume DLC, including Mila dressing up as 1998 Tina

Team Ninja's new 3D fighter Dead or Alive 5 has some lovely free DLC already in the form of a set of spanking new outfits. There's a distinct retro theme here, as Zack reprises his shiny 'alien Teletubby' outfit from DoA2 and Helena dons her original operatic ensemble.

However, while others offer newer ideas, it's new girl Mila's homage to the original Dead or Alive's Tina that has the fanboy in us jumping up and down with delight. This is damn cool.

    The game that just keeps on giving :D if they can fix the online issues (assuming I'm not the only one getting major lag on psn) and even more opportunities for spectator mode :D really, really hope they patch in the ability to export the pics to the home page :(

    Nope, you're not alone. Online is unplayable for me, when I eventually find a game, it lags and stutters like crazy. And being new to the franchise, I need the game to at least be running well, otherwise how else are people gonna know how bad I suck

    You can't beat free and you know what else? I think Team Ninja legitimately loves their fans.

    Tecmo, take my money! Oh, wait... Capcom, are you watching? Because this is how you keep your fanbase.
