Team Ninja have announced a new Tag Mode for the upcoming fighting game Dead or Alive 5, along with two new (returning) characters.
Tina, also known as “The Superstar”, is the daughter of legendary wrestler Bass. Trained by her father from a young age, Tina possesses an amazing level of technical skill at wrestling, easy tying up opponents with a combination of arm and leg locks and powerful throws.
Despite her father’s wishes for her to carry on the family wrestling tradition, Tina has joined the Dead or Alive Tournament with a pursuit of superstardom on a whole new level!
Jann Lee, also known as “A Scorching Soul”, is a self-taught master of Jeet Kune Do, who seeks the thrill of battle whenever he can. By watching martial-arts movies as a young orphan, he taught himself the deadly fast kicks and sudden, hard hitting jabs that make Jann Lee the very confident, perhaps even cocky, fighter he is today.Jann Lee enters the Dead or Alive Tournaments with the lone goal of becoming the greatest fighter of all time, while simultaneously trying to avoid the obsession of Lei Fang, who has been chasing him ever since he saved her from a street gang as a young girl.
Tag Mode, meanwhile, sees opponents facing off in a special electrified arena that will actively play a role in the combat. Being zapped by the ring will stun your character, leaving you open for tag-team combos and increasing the strategy required in order to win.
Dead or Alive 5 also promises a deeply customizable training mode, allowing players to tweak many aspects of the AI (including recovery time, etc) and change other settings relating to combat.
Dead or Alive 5 is heading to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 at the end of September.
