Robert T. should be the final boss. When the stage loads he shoots you and you die. Because he's that badass.

I'm incredibly hyped to play as Momiji in this game!

Last I heard Tecmo's considering a F2P (free-to-play) model in Japan. They're going to release the game for free with four playable characters (Kasumi, Ryu and I think Ayane and Hayate). You'll be able to play as those characters online for free too. Additional characters you'll have to pay a fee to unlock, about $4. For people who main a specific set of characters you'll be saving a considerable amount of money if this goes through.

SRK has the scoop, lots of mixed reactions being tossed around.

I thought the F2P thing was interesting.

I'm pissed that Ultimate will not be something you can upgrade DOA5 to with a patch though. And vanilla DOA5 will not be cross-playable with UDOA5. :?

Yeah, that's a real crappy thing to do to the players. It's like MvC3 all over again...

It'd be a much shorter list to count how many fighting games actually released their updated version as a patch instead of a new release.

Anyone else pick this up? I'm in! Just debating whether to spend ANOTHER $40 for the costume packs, haha.

If you're ever down for some matches, I am in. :) Pretty terrible at this game.
