'Dead or Alive 5 Plus' for PlayStation Vita.

Video game developer Team NINJA has revealed that Dead or Alive 5 Plus, the company's upcoming fighting game for PlayStation Vita, will come to the handheld system on March 19, 2013.  When it does, it will feature cross-platform features that allow players to play matches against opponents on both PlayStation 3 and PS Vita while sharing costumes across both platforms. 

Team NINJA also revealed additional feature details for casual and core players alike.

The game will support touch-sensative play.  PS Vita gamers can experience battles in Dead or Alive 5 Plus through two new styles of touch combat with the PS Vita held vertically in portrait mode to get a first-person, full-screen view of your opponent at maximum size.  In Mode One, tap the opponent to attack them in that spot.  In Mode Two, touch, flick, and pinch the screen to attack your opponent with more finesse and options.  Both methods offer players an instinctive way to fight while seeing their opponent in the highest graphic detail.

Dead or Alive 5 Plus will also offer player a Training Plus Mode.  In this mode, players build their fighting skills and knowledge by playing through challenging missions, each of which offers a fun experience while imparting practical knowledge.

The game will also feature more detailed frame data -- three times the details for each move in real-time

The ESRB has not yet rated Dead or Alive 5 Plus.
