It has been almost six years since Dead or Alive 4 was released as a launch title for the then-new Xbox 360. In that time series creator Tomonobu Itagaki and publisher Tecmo Koei have parted ways, Dead or Alive: Code Chronos was canceled and a bevy of spinoff titles have been released.
Today, Tecmo Koei used their Tokyo Game Show presentation to reveal that a fifth game in the main series, Dead or Alive 5, is in the works for the PS3 and Xbox 360. While development is still in the early stages, Tecmo Koei and developer Team Ninja wowed TGS attendees with a teaser trailer starring Ryu Hayabusa and Hayate fighting in a warehouse. Be sure to check out the trailer for yourself after the break.
The publisher also refused to call Dead or Alive 5 “just a fighting game,” preferring instead to call it “fighting entertainment.” Ah euphemisms, where would we be without them?
