Tecmo has revealed new details about the Booster Disc for Dead or Alive 3. This exciting extra offers existing owners of Dead or Alive 3 the ability to play with new costumes in the full version of Dead or Alive 3. The Booster Disc also comes complete with a brand-new CG movie starring many of the characters in the game. The Booster Disc is available only as a special option in the demo disc for the Official Xbox Magazine’s June issue. The June issue has a street date of May 7th. The OXM demo disc also features a playable demo of Dead or Alive 3, allowing people the opportunity to try out time-attack mode without owning the full game.
When the Booster Disc option is selected from the main menu, players are shown the new eye-popping CG movie, which was the intro movie for the Japanese and European versions of Dead or Alive 3. This spectacular cinematic sequence is of the same high quality as the game’s CG endings, which were made with a multi-million dollar budget.
At the Booster Disc’s new character select screen, players are given the option to look at and then add one or all of the new costumes to their existing DOA3 game data. In less than a minute, the new costumes are added, and they are made available right away. From that point on, the full version of DOA3 will feature these new costumes, bringing the total number of costumes available to over 60.
Every character except for the hidden character Ein receives anywhere from 1-3 new costumes. The costumes can be risquÃ© such as Tina’s bikini, complete with cowboy hat, holster, and front-tied T-shirt, Helena’s harem girl outfit, or Lei-Fang’s black dominatrix dress from DOA2: Hardcore. Some costumes are stylish, such as Jann Lee’s white tuxedo waiter suit, Brad Wong’s formal Chinese martial arts robe, or Hayabusa’s headband-free ninja suit, which lets his long hair flow with the wind. Costumes can also be somewhat comical, such as Bayman’s scuba gear with snorkel, Bass’ Viking outfit, or Kasumi’s 3 variations on the Japanese schoolgirl uniform.
