Koei Tecmo has teamed up with one of my favourite Japanese RPG developers to create a set of Dead or Alive 5: Last Round costumes based on the delightful costume designs from the Atelier series and other Gust games. I'd almost pay $44 for them. Almost. Kasumi and friends decked out in outfits from the Atelier series, Ciel Nosurge and Nights of Azure adds a new level of charm to the latest entry in the fighting game franchise, and maybe a little bit of respectability (OK, maybe not that one Nights of Azure outfit).
That said, there is no way in hell I am spending $US31.99 ($44) on a set of fighting game costumes. I love a good crossover collaboration, but I don't love it this much. Do people actually buy these things?
