I wouldn't say its 5 new characters. You have ein who is hayate doing karate, jacky bryant another jeet kune do practicioner, 2 characters( rachel and momiji) from the ninja gaiden series, and leon whose a bayman clone if I recall. They could of released original characters instead. The only thing that interests me is that team fight mode that sort of sounds interesting. Does anyone know if there will be a online pass for this game?
I think it's worth it simply for the added content. It's worth mention that not all of the DLC costumes currently available for sale will be included on the disc for DOA5U, meaning you'll have to buy the rest separately. On the plus side, you will be able to transfer your purchased costumes to DOA5U.
