Team NINJA has today revealed two new contenders for Dead or Alive 5, the star-struck vixen 'Tina' and Jeet Kune Do master 'Jann Lee'.
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.
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.
In addition to the new characters, Team Ninja has also revealed a new stage called 'Fighting Entertainment'. Set in a packed wrestling arena, fighters must carefully outmaneuver their opponent to avoid being zapped by the high voltage current coursing through the ropes. Even the slightest touch can instantly stun, leaving one open to a vicious tag team combo.
Dead or Alive 5 also includes an improved Training Mode that lets players control more features than any of the previous Dead or Alive games. A wealth of options are now available on the settings screen for players to adjust the AI opponent's behavior, such as input recording, recovery time from staggers and more. Players will have the ability to practice and improve their Dead or Alive skills for any scenario. There are also optional missions during Story mode battles to teach players everything from basic controls to advanced fighting techniques!
