A Dead or Alive fan site has managed to get hold of the Alpha Demo of the game early – and streamed over 2 hours of it in action.

The archived stream provided by FreeStepDodge (via Siliconera) gives a glimpse at the general gameplay and characters in this early build. If you’re into DOA it actually then goes quite deep on some of the changes to the mechanics, though I can’t say I understood some of it.

It’s been a rough morning for Team Ninja, with Ninja Gaiden 3 splitting opinion in a big way. They’re likely hoping that DOA5 – which also stars Ninja Gaiden’s Ryu Hayabusa – will be received more universally positively.

See it for yourself over on FreeStepDodge’s Justin.tv channel.
