Dead or Alive 5 will be a Rock-Paper-Scissors type game where attacks beat throws, throws beat holds and holds beat attacks. Arenas are highly interactive and destructible.
Dead or Alive 5 will have new features such as the ability to grab onto ledges when an opponent has kicked you out of the ring. Once hanging by a ledge, the attacker can respond by grabbing you or striking and you can also respond by guarding or dodging.
There will be new power moves, which enable players to knock other players sideways to charge up other more powerful moves. Trying to spam combo moves are not be fun, so the developers have tried to give people strategies and moves to use to stun or daze opponents, so you can have time to execute powerful moves.
The developer has also said that they have tried to strengthen each character according to their personality. For example, Tina is a grappler so they have given her many grappling moves.
Dead or Alive 5 will be released on the 25th September and will be available on Xbox 360 and PS3.
