[QUOTE] [URL=http://www.siliconera.com/2013/06/03/dead-or-alive-5-ultimate-will-also-be-released-as-a-freemium-game-for-ps3/]DoA gets a piecemeal release[/URL]. It's an interesting experiment if nothing else. [/QUOTE] It's basically how League of Legends works, the way I understand it - I've been hoping some fighting game gives the system a try, and DoA got there first. As expanded re-releases go, seems like an interesting way to give it a try without pissing off the buyers of the previous version too much, since they get to reuse a lot of assets from a previous traditional release (Momiji's video made her seem like a cross between Hayabusa and Kasumi, Jacky probably gets to use animation imported from his original VF self, Ein gets a tweaked Hayate model with previous DoA animation data plus extras, etc...). I might get the free version and pay for Mila (fave new character) and Jacky (crossover factor), maybe Momiji too, since I already have vanilla DoA5 but would like to see this model become more common. Now I wonder who else will give this a try - I can't help but think it would a nice way for SNKP to put all their KoF 96-XI sprite sets to use, but on the other hand those might get dismissed as "SNES graphics", and there'd still be the issue of a standard gameplay system to go with (98 advanced or extra, 2k2? typical etam system or XI tag?...). [QUOTE] As for the DOA5U "test-drive" version, it could be interesting for people who don't know it well enough... but I wonder: if the player pays for Story Mode but doesn't have all the characters, will s/he still be able to play it? For instance, if I don't buy Leifang (Leifang is awesome so everyone will buy her, but you get the picture), will I still be able to play her chapter in Story Mode? Will Story Mode be accessible only if I have ALL characters? Or will Story Mode just "skip" Leifang's chapter then? Although, to be honest, I'm not sure if anyone would miss DOA5's Story Mode (unless it gets some extra chapters and cutscenes in this Ultimate version)... [/QUOTE] If they make it so you get to use everyone in Story mode (but only in that mode) it can be a nice way to test-drive the characters - DoA5's didn't give a playable role to Lisa, Christie and the unlockables, so addressing that would be an automatic improvement.
