Team Ninja Reveals Two More Dead or Alive 5 Fighters

Team Ninja has unveiled more fighters for Dead or Alive 5, adding “Fortune’s Heiress” Helena Douglas and “La Mariposa,” also known as Lisa Hamilton, to the line-up.
As is DOA’s style, both characters sport gravity-defying bodies and a nice line in fetish wear. Indeed, despite various sections of the videogame community increasingly getting upset about the objectification of women, Team Ninja are utterly unrepentant.
“For us, within our culture, we’re showing women like that, and we’re trying to make them look attractive. We can’t help if other cultures in other countries around the globe think that it’s a bad representation,” Dead or Alive 5 director Yosuke Hayashi told MCV.
“Within our nationality and within our national borders, we obviously have morals that we create our female characters from, but within our Japanese sensibilities, we’ve made those characters the way they are and we’re not going to stop doing that.”
You can see both of those characters “the way they are” in the video below. There’s also a selection of new screens beneath that, with more in the gallery. And if you want to see Team Ninja do their best/worst work, the killer sexy bunny girls are probably the best place to start.
Dead or Alive 5 is out on September 25th in North America and September 28th in Europe.
