Dead or Alive 5 trailer reveals Zack and Lei Feng, also tigers

Dead or Alive has always been something of a fringe series in a genre dominated by two or three series (Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Soul Calibur etc) but it seems like Team Ninja have figured out a way to grab attention with their new fighter: they made it completely insane.

See what we mean? The music is loud, half the stage is on fire, there's tigers leaping everywhere, glitter, afros, and oh my god that guy just got shot out of a giant clown nose! This game is nuts, and so far we absolutely love it. We've got enough hyper-precise, technically sound fighting games (read: Virtua Fighter 5) to last a lifetime. Let's get nuts.

    Why does Zack look well tanned? Also, Zany doesn't equal good. Prime example? Saints Row: The Third

    Saints Row: The third might not be the best game out there, but it WAS pretty fun, and good part of it was because of it's zaniness. Like i mentioned before, might not be terribly memorable, but I had a blast while I played it. And anyway, it surprises me that GR talks about Zack as if he hasn't always been batshit weird like he is in here. I mean, he's ZACK. Also, good to see they are apparently bringing all the known characters back... but are they actually gonna show any new ones?

    Fuck yeah, Zack!

    I just wish Team Ninja would release the demo to people who don't want to buy Ninja Gaiden 3
