Two new characters and online feature announced for Dead or Alive 5
Team Ninja has announced that Helen Douglas and Lisa Hamilton will be returning to the Dead or Alive franchise in the upcoming Dead or Alive 5. Also a new 16-player online tournament and other online features were announced.
Below is the description of the two newly announced DOA 5 character:
Helena Douglas, also known as “Fortune’s Heiress,” is the current leader of the Dead or Alive Tournament Executive Committee (DOATEC) and the daughter of Fame Douglas, founder of DOATEC. As a famous opera singer and Pi Gua Quan martial artist, Helena’s refined elegance translates into a quick yet graceful fighting style that allows her to pull off smooth windmill-like combinations that overwhelm her opponents. After the apparent destruction of DOATEC after the last tournament, Helena has re-emerged to announce the reformed DOATEC and issue an open invitation to all potential competitors to the fifth Dead or Alive Tournament.
Lisa Hamilton, also known as “La Mariposa,” is a former scientist for DOATEC and an accomplished luchadora. Lisa’s unpredictable lucha libre style combines moves she learned while training with friend and fellow DOA competitor Tina Armstrong during high school and her own blend of high-flying kicks. Her unorthodox style makes her a difficult opponent to counter and defend against effectively. Little is known as to why Lisa has returned to the fifth DOA Tournament, but the reemergence DOATEC has once again brought “La Mariposa” back into action.
For those who like to play fighting games online, Dead or Alive 5 will feature an up to 16-player online tournaments. The feature will allow players to set up their own bracket-style tournaments, while the fighter list allows players to view opponents’ battle records and call them out to fight at anytime.
There will also be an online dojo that allows players to practice with others in training mode, while the spectator feature allows players to chat while watching online battles. Players can also rock bragging rights by posting titles and sharing fighting records with friends on Facebook.
