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.
