Dead or Alive 5 has been announced at the Tokyo Game Show 2011 as the latest and fifth core title in the long-running fighting game series from Tecmo and Team Ninja. And the sequel to Dead or Alive 4.
This is the first Dead or Alive game that is being developed without creator Tomonobu Itagaki, who originally produced the title as well as the Xbox Ninja Gaiden series.
As you can see from the debut Dead or Alive trailer, the game will have much larger and more interactive stages than ever before. It is being produced by Yousuke Hiyashi who uses the tagline “fighting entertainment” to explain the direction of the title.
It will be released for Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2012.
Here is a trailer of pre-Alpha footage of Dead or Alive 5.
