This is a bit weird. We actually played as Tina during our Dead Alive 5 hands-on during E3, but only today has Team Ninja decided to reveal that the lithe, nubile wrestler and daughter of Bass Armstrong is joining the growing roster of fighters. She's joined by Jeet Kune Do master and DoA mainstay, Jann Lee.

There's a whole bunch of screenshots and a new trailer to coincide with the arrival of the two characters, with the so-called 'Scorching Soul' Jann Lee, pairing up with Lei Fang to take on Bass Armstrong's wrestiling alter-ego Mr. Strong and Mariposa.

Taking place in a newly unveiled arena called 'Fighting Entertainment', the pairs fight in Dead or Alive 5's returning Tag Mode in an electrified ring surrounded by the baying masses. Dead or Alive 5 will also boast a vastly improved Training Mode, with a plethora of options to play with including the behaviour of AI opponents and an input recorder.

Dead or Alive 5 is out on September 25th, 2012. Check out all 22 screenshots in the gallery and the new trailer below.

Did this article confuse Tina with La Mariposa? Because...they're two different people.
They're two different *ethnicities*.

I can't wait to smash people around with Bayman again. One of the only fighting games I enjoy playing these days.

I've never understood the draw to this franchise. Not one drop of blood, sad.

@Stone Devil

This is the reason that makes Dead or Alive so appealing to some people. The fact that you don't need blood and gore for a fighting game to be entertaining. Go back to playing Mortal Kombat if that's what you're into.

Why does the cover of DOA5 look like a BlowJob is about to take place?

The trailer was AWFUL. Quality wise. The game looks as good as ever, and the Jiggly is a welcome return. I wasn't sure I was going to like how the new faces look, but they look Good :) . Can the game will be out already?

Honestly, looks like another Street Fighter X Tekken all over again, but worse. Get caught in a combo and the match is pretty much over with the character air juggling.
