Tokyo Game Show 2011: Dead Or Alive 5 Confirmed For 2012 Release On 360 & PS3

leave a comment »

Lovers of martial arts, ninjas and women with abnormally large chest tumour monsters attached to them rejoice! Team Ninja has confirmed that Dead or Alive 5 will be released next year on the 360 and PS3.

Not since January 2006 has a new core instalment of the Dead or Alive fighting franchise been seen on home consoles.

At this year’s Tokyo Game Show however, Team Ninja let us know that next year we’ll see the Dead or Alive 5 on the 360 and PS3; marking some nearly seven years since the last title in the infamous fighting franchise made it’s bow on the home consoles.

Details are predictably sparse, and those who got to see were politely informed not film what they were watching or GTFO, but the teaser trailer build which appeared to be on display was pre-alpha and as such represented very early code.

In the teaser, Ninja Gaiden star Hayabusa was seen ready to engage in combat with fellow Shinobi Hayate on top of a highly lit urban district and that was pretty much it.

Team Ninja head Yosuke Hayashi said that the game wasn’t just a ‘fighting game’, it’s now ‘fighting entertainment’.

Fighting entertainment. What bollocks.

Anyhoo, take a look at the trailer below:
