Stagger escape issue discovered in Dead or Alive 5 ver. 1.03 patch, Team Ninja halting Xbox 360 update until next month Team Ninja has reported on their Twitter that an issue with stagger escapes was discovered in Dead or Alive 5 after the ver. 1.03 patch has been applied. Because of this inconvenience, the Xbox 360 patch that was scheduled for release next Tuesday will be postponed until next month.

Both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 patches are being worked on and Team Ninja aims to have them corrected sometime next month.

Check out the official statement from Team Ninja's Twitter.

An issue with stagger escapes (a.k.a. slow escapes) during Critical has been discovered in the Ver.1.03 patch for PS3, released 1/22. This issue prevents users from enjoying the intended design of DOA5. We deeply apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.

As a result, we have halted the Xbox 360 update originally scheduled for January 29, 2013. We plan to release a corrected update for both PS3 and Xbox 360 systems sometime in February.

The "Hotties Swimwear" and "Zack Island Stage" DLC for the Xbox 360 will also be released at the same time in February. Our deepest regrets for the inconvenience this has caused and we appreciate your continued support.
