Dead or Alive 5 Gets Another Crossover Fighter

By Rebecca Smith, 4 years ago
Team Ninja has been teasing a possible crossover in its fighting games for a while. Although this is far from a true crossover in the style of this week's Street Fighter X Tekken, will include a fighter from another publisher's franchise. Akira Yuki, poster boy for SEGA's Virtua Fighter franchise, has been confirmed to be starring alongside confirmed Dead or Alive favourites Ayane, Hitomi, Hayate and Kasumi. Ninja Gaiden's Ryu Hayabusa will also be appearing.

The most recent gameplay video to appear out of this week's Game Developers' Conference shows Akira and Kasumi as opponents in one of the featured fights:

As if the new trailer wasn't enough, have a look at these screenshots showing some of the other characters in action:
