Dead or Alive 5, the latest edition in the... eccentric fighting game franchise, is ramping up the PR leading up to its release in two months, September 25. Today's new material includes the reveal of two additions to the DoA 5 roster, "star-struck vixen Tina and Jeet Kune Do master Jann Lee." Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja have also included details on tag-teams and, with a trailer, and the inclusion of an improved training mode. The Xbox 360, PS3 title is said to be the best in the franchise yet.
Tina is the daughter of a professional wrestler, and has been trained to compete. She's an expert in grappling and throws, but has only joined the DoA tournament to further her stardom. Jann Lee, as mention before, is a Jeet Kune Do master who thrives on the thrill of battle. Growing up on martial arts movies, Jann joins the tournament to -- naturally -- prove he is the strongest fighter in the world. What complex characters, I can only imagine what sort of adventure awaits us in DoA 5.
