Team Ninja has announced some sort of re-release or new version of Dead or Alive 5.

Shoryuken reports the game was announced at a tournament by producer Yosuke Hayashi.

It’s not really clear what the new game is, but a teaser shows it definitely bears the title Dead or Alive 5 – suggesting it’s an expansion rather than a full new sequel – and is headed to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. We’ve asked Tecmo Koei for more information.

The character seen in the very brief video below is Momiji, from Ninja Gaiden; Tecmo Koei is pretty keen on character cross-promotion, and characters from Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden regularly wander into each others’ domains. The audience seemed very excited by her appearance.
