On February 27 Koei Tecmo Games announced on a Famitsu live stream show that a Dead or Alive 5 Last Round X Senran Kagura collaboration costume set is currently in the works.


And today, Famitsu has published the first screenshot for the (eagerly anticipated?) DLC pack. The screenshow you see below is taken from the PS4/XB1 development build of the game.

At first glance, the costumes you see in the screenshot above may not look like the sort of "oversexualized" costumes that certain DOA5 community leaders are pushing to be soft-banned at tournaments.

But wait till you see the costumes in action; commenting on the single screenshot, Dead or Alive 5 Last Round producer and Team Ninja chief Yosuke Hayashi said that the costumes you saw are still a work-in-progress, and that the team absolutely plans on incorporating the "explosively destructible" aspect of the costumes, which is a signature trait for Marvelous AQL's Senran Kagura series.

Want to see what the "explosively destructible" costumes in Senran Kagura are like? You can get a taste of in the following trailers below, of Marvelous AQL's Senran Kagura: Bon Appetit for the PS Vita and Senran Kagura: Estival Versus (PS4, PS Vita). Needless to say, this is NSFW.
