Two New Dead or Alive 5 Characters to be Revealed This Week

Posted on April 24, 2012 AT 06:53am

THE BUZZ: Team Ninja has announced that two new Dead or Alive 5 characters will be revealed this week.

“So as Mr. Shinbori said, we have new info this week. We’ll reveal two new characters soon! Could they be some of your favorites? #DOA5,” the developer said on Twitter.

So far six characters have been revealed for the game: Ayane, Hitomi, Kasumi, Hayate, Hayabusa and Virtua Fighter’s Akira.

EGM’s TAKE: A leaked version of the Dead or Alive 5 roster hit the net a few months ago which included a couple of other Virtua Fighter characters, could they be revealed this week? With only six revealed so far, we’ve still got a long way to go before we have a full roster. Team Ninja has promised to revolutionize fighting games, we’ll have to wait and see if they can live up to that statement.
