Dead or Alive 5's roster of jiggly pendulous-breasted ladies and meatheaded fellas is to be joined by a special guest fighter from another tactical fighting game. Akira from SEGA's Virtua Fighter series is set to be a playable character in DoA 5.
Given Akira's fighting style, he ought to be a perfect fit for Dead or Alive 5's pared-down button scheme that favours careful timing and combos over button-mashing.
“Gamers will have an opportunity to enjoy an unforgettable battle with an esteemed competitor in Akira Yuki set in the Dead or Alive environment,” said Yosuke Hayashi, Studio Head at Team Ninja. “This year will prove to be an amazing one for our loyal fighting fans as we are delivering a fantastic fighting game that can only been experienced in Dead or Alive 5.”
Tecmo and Team Ninja have yet to set a release date for Dead or Alive 5. Check out the Akira trailer below.
