Akira may not be the only Virtua Fighter guest star making an appearance in Dead or Alive 5, according to Team Ninja's Yousuke Hayashi, who revealed to Famitsu that he pestered SEGA to allow him to feature Akira in the game's character roster.

Given the effort that's gone into making the collaboration happen, Hayashi will be attempting to cram more guest characters into Dead or Alive 5, reports Andriasang.

Meanwhile, in other Dead or Alive 5 news, a release window has been given for the fighter, which will be boasting even more interactive arenas and more characters.

Dead or Alive 5 will be launching worldwide in September 2012.

looking back at DoA 4 achievements makes me want to be dead than alive. Purely evil and it makes Dark Souls achievement look like a pushover (though there's no relation whatsoever).

I just hope it's more doable this time.

On second thought, I take back what I said. Street Fighter is the biggest pushover.

Picked up DOA4 at a local pawnshop for $3! Can't wait for the new version. I hope each console does not have specific exclusives, as my 360 MK Fight Stick is perfect for DOA games.

This would actually be interesting.

Turn DoA into DoA x Virtua Fighter, and then Capcom pushes out Darkstalkers, and then we have all the biggest fighting franchises out almost back to back.

@6: The lack of characters doesn't really bug me. After all, the ones it does have are pretty good, and it has more cool characters than most games. What I really want from them is better costume design. Lisa is totally awesome, but I just can't stand any of her costumes in 4. improve the costumes, and I won't care if we only get two or three new people. I have my complaints about the series, but the characters themselves has never been one of them.

Awesome. I remember I spent hours and hours playing Dead or Alive 3 on Xbox when it first came out. Good time!

Love the fighting game resurgence! DOA 5 in Sept., An improved digital copy of VF5 this summer, Skullgirls. TT2, tho not a fan.

A new KI is on the top of my list, followed by a new Darkstalkers and Capcom vs SNK 3.

Been a fan since the first DOA. Hopefully the achievments will be not so much grinding as DOA 4 was. Can't wait for DOA 5 demo!
