Dead or Alive 5 seems to be no exception to the cardinal rule of fighting games, which is that the plots have to be batshit insane to explain why thirty people are smacking each other up and all of them can win. Understanding your bafflement, Tecmo Koei has released a flowchart explaining how the main characters relate to each other. Welcome to gaming in 2012. Dead or Alive 5 arrives on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in late September.
