The latest version of Dead or Alive 5, the recently-announced Ultimate, is getting an arcade release in Japan. Shoryuken reports, via Japanese sources, that the arcade release is set for northern winter and will use Sega’s ALL.Net P-ras MULTI Ver.2 system. It’s the first time the Dead or Alive series has released in Japanese arcades in 13 years. Ultimate is also heading west in free-to-play form as well as as a full retail release.
