If you were able to pick up Dead Or Alive 5 in North America last night or already have your copy in Europe you will notice a patch that may seem small but it bares great weight on the overall game by improving a few aspects that were apparent prior to the patch.
-Slight adjustments to some of the character motions and moves.
-Removed the ability to change the stage models displayed in the background in order to improve load times.
-Survival Mode: even if you are unable to clear the course, your points (Results Screen) will be displayed and the World Ranking will be updated.
-During the pre-battle entrance animation, each character’s Grade and Title will be displayed.
-The matchmaking system has been improved so it is easier to find and join a match.
-In Lobby Match, the Random filter will display within the client’s settings rather than the host’s.
-The cursor location will be remembered in the Character and Stage Select screens.
-Added the ability to adjust the Hit Settings (Normal/Counter/High-Counter) in the Online Dojo.
-Minor fixes to areas that had the possibility of causing instability within the game.
It is great to see Tecmo Koei really supporting the title and making an effort to make the online as balanced as possible. Be sure to check out our review of Dead Or Alive 5 and see what we thought of the fighter.
