Dead or Alive 5 trailer shows off new character, Rig

Beneath all of the jiggling femininity, there's a layer of insanity to the Dead or Alive series. Take this trailer for instance. After the first melodramatic battle with a femme fatale, we're treated to a fight that breaks out because a pro-wrestler perceived that his motorcycle was insulted.

"Apologize for insulting my baby!" is one of the great out-of-context lines of dialogue in gaming history. Let's hope the rest of the game is just as insane when it comes to North America on September 25, 2012. Kids, don't insult babies.

    Japanese games: please never stop having weird dialogue. I don't own a single DOA, but I'd get this just to hear this. Even sample it and remix it. recaptcha: deputation dstitt

    Is it me, or did Bass lose some eight? Anyway, still not keen on the new character's lame and generic appearance, but his fighting style reminds me of Howarang's from Tekken. And that's a very good thing in my book. Also, he's Bass co-worker? Oh boy, I bet his storyline will involve hitting on Tina or something, and pissing his Dad off. No way the Japanese would miss on an opportunity to do that.

    At which point Bass would yell "Apologize for insulting my baby!"...again.

    Hahaha! XD I hadn't thought about that, but you're right! That's be very fitting as well :P

    I was reminded of Hwoarang as well. Glad I always enjoyed playing with him so that´s cool :P In the first fight he looks a lot like Prototype's Alex Mercer with that silly hood.
