DoA5 in development and launching in 2012
Theres a brand new Dead or Alive game in development, and its heading to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Team Ninja head Yosuke Hayashi offered "a glimpse in the future" of the DOA franchise during tonights TGS 2011 Tecmo event, during which he asked that we shut off all recording equipment (thus the lack of a thrilling image above).
In a teaser trailer of a pre-Alpha (read: very early) build of Dead or Alive 5, Ninja Gaidens Ryu Hayabusa faces off against rival Hayate on top of a brightly lit urban area -- perhaps the Shibuya digs were currently writing this from? Hayashi teased dramatic new levels, and even went as far as to call the game "fighting entertainment," rather than "just a fighting game." (Note: Its a fighting game.)
