Dead or Alive 5 release date revealed

Shares

While all the E3 announcements are coming at you at the rate of about 30 announcements per hour, we noticed that Tecmo-Koei has also announced that we'll be seeing Dead or Alive 5 on store shelves on September 25, 2012.

The latest in the long-running franchise, Dead or Alive 5 looks to be relatively similar to the popular Dead or Alive 4. Namely, Tecmo has said that the counter system from the last game will be returning in the fifth iteration. The system is well-known among fighting fans for how easy it made countering, often leading to tense battles which included multi-layered counters (which is to say: a counter of a counter of a counter of an attack.)

TK also announced two new fighters who will be joining into the mix: Tekken's Sarah Bryant and Virtua Fighter 5's Akira. Stay tuned for more on Dead or Alive 5 as E3 progresses.

    You guys realise Sarah Bryant is also from Virtua Fighter, not Tekken? That release date is only 5 days after Tekken Tag Tournament 2. I'd really rather they had spaced them out a bit.

    Hayashi hates everything about Team Ninja and is desperately trying to ruin the company. That's why the release dates are so close.

    Normally, I wouldn't doubt Team Ninja's ability to put together a DOA game. After seeing the weak critical & consumer reception for Ninja Gaiden 3, and playing the game for myself, I do hope DOA 5 fares better.
