You might want to stretch out and put on your favourite skimpy outfit before reading on. All limbered up? Good.

Tecmo Koei has released a new trailer, and a wealth of new information, on the upcoming Vita fighter Dead or Alive 5 Plus.

Siliconera reports that the game will feature two new training modes for those looking to master their fighting style early on. Command Training allows players to practice the timing of their attacks, while Combo Challenge will provide a set of attacks to master (a combo, if you will).

If neither of those appeal, there's also a Free Training mode that will allow players to focus on Power Blows, Critical Attacks, or any other attack that they'd like to learn.

Reach out and touch someone

As we reported earlier, Dead or Alive 5 Plus will feature touch controls for the Vita that put the game into first-person mode.

In Touch Fight mode, you fight solely with taps and swipes on the screen. Swiping upward, for example, will launch an opponent while pinching towards them will execute a throw or a hold. Touch Fight can be played with your Vita in either portrait or landscape orientation.

Dead or Alive 5 Plus will be released in the US on March 19 and will come to Europe on March 22.
