Hot on the heels of the Collector’s Edition reveal yesterday, Tecmo Koei has announced a new character for Dead or Alive 5.
Rig is a Canadian taekwondo expert, a big burly dude in a hooded jacket. In the Japanese version of the game he's voiced by Hiroki Tochi, who has provided work for a whole string of games and is Will Smith’s official Japanese dub-over artist. Which is kinda cool.
The addition of Rig to the roster brings the fighting game’s total count to 13. Amongst them are Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden, and Akira and Sarah from Virtua Fighter.
Dead or Alive 5 is out in September. You can find a scan from Japanese mag Famitsu below, showing Rig in all his glory. E3 preview's here.
