New Dead or Alive 5 Gameplay Shows Lei Fang, Zack Clowning Around

By

Team Ninja has confirmed that Lei Fang and Zack will be joining the roster of Dead or Alive 5, and unlike most of the other trailers released so far, this one takes a walk on the slightly ridiculous side of the fighting action.

It’s probably safe to assume that these circus get-ups aren’t their default costumes, but nonetheless, this arena in particular is decidedly flashy. Note the tigers running back and forth across the stage, which can be used to damage your opponent if you knock them into the animals.

Like some of the stages shown so far, there are detailed finishing animations that occur depending on when and where you execute a “Power Blow” near a corresponding “Danger Zone.” One can only wonder if everyone will look as goofy as Zack does shooting out of a clown cannon.
