Team Ninja have announced that Dead or Alive 5 is going portable on the Vita.
DOA5 Plus is due for release on early next year, and Team Ninja have promised features "appealing [to] the DOA 5 PLUS name".
"To all the DOA fighters around the world, congratulations. An exciting era is about to start for everyone."
"We plan to release 'Dead or Alive 5 Plus' on the PlayStation Vita at an early stage of next year."
"DOA5's arrival on a new hardware will bring new players to the existing communities and for our loyal and core fans like eveyone [sic] gathered today [at the IPL tournament] can now practice and brush up their skills anywhere they want." --Team Ninja head Yosuke Hayashi
Team Ninja have also announced that a "feature expanding patch" for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Dead or Alive 5 will also be coming early next year, though more details on what the patch will bring is still unknown.
Dead or Alive 5 was released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in September. MMGN's review summarised the game as "a welcome return of the fighting franchise which provides massive fan-service in the form of sexy female characters, costumes and effects, over-the-top fighting action and impressive visual presentation."
