Dead or Alive 5 roster to expand further before launch

Sunday, 19th August 2012 23:56 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Dead or Alive 5′s line-up of combatants isn’t yet complete, Team Ninja boss Yosukle Hayashi has confirmed.

Hayashi hinted that more Dead or Alive 5 character reveals are on the way while speaking to VG247 at gamescom, but was more explicit when talking to Famitsu, via Andriasang.

The Team Ninja boss reportedly confirmed that the full cast list is yet to be announced, with more characters on the way – possibly even after launch.

As he mentioned while speaking to Daves, Hayashi said that he has some mysterious plans involving Virtua Fighter character cameos.

Dead or Alive 5 is due in September on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

    Bring back old characters. Hopefully they will cover DOA1, 2, 3 and 4′s story too like Tekken did in the sixth game. DOA’s story is actually pretty interesting and each characters has their own deep drama…or not. 19 fighters is TOO LOW, hopefully we’ll have at least 26.
