In it, Hayashi emphasizes that other fighting games have done nothing to advance the genre for the past 10 years, and Team NINJA is looking to make Dead or Alive 5 more about the stage design and take you into dynamic levels.

Speaking to Eurogamer backstage at Tokyo Game Show today, Hayashi argued that though the likes of Street Fighter 4 and Tekken 6 looked spectacular, they hadn't...

DOA5: The game is finally announced

On September 14, 2011 Team Ninja has released the Pre-Alpha trailer for Dead or Alive 5. The trailer shows off a dangerzone filled construction yard rooftop with Hayate and Hayabusa dueling it out. It should be expected that many of the attacks and motions are from Dead or Alive 4 as pre-alpha builds tend to carry over a lot from the previous version as other system mechanics are ironed out and developed. At the same time it should be warned that anything shown during the trailer could be changed once the final build arrives.

Team NINJA has set out to claim the game as "fighting entertainment", and honestly it makes me feel that the series has returned to the DOA3 style of grittiness that I personally have enjoyed. There's not much core gameplay information to be found at this time as it appears at first glance to be a consolized Dead or Alive Dimensions. I only caught two new...

Everybody is excited for SC6, but I'm just here waiting for D0A6.
Alright, the arsenal of weapons Dante has at disposal is dope. All I need now is Nevan (which is unlikely since Cerberus 2.0 has Lightning/Thunder, but one man can dream) and DMC5 has hands down the best weapons and weapon variety out of all DMC games in my opinion.
Guess I'll just fiddle about on DOA til SC unlocks :)
Got SC6 in my hands right now! Wooooot! But I got work for the next 5 hours :( but after that, hitting the lab all night long!
I just wait for 3rd part of Dualshockers interview about chars and story
I need to remember DOA discussion is not possible outside of this place. DOA and logic do not coexist outside of here.
waluigi really shouldn't be in smash in my opinion. no real moveset potential, no appearance in a main game. even if he would be included, most people would drop him after a week or two. he's more like a meme than actually a valuable character.
DOA vs RUMBLE ROSES!! (Well, sorta XD)
I wonder what if Itagaki-san became the director/producer of an eventual Rumble Roses 3?
"Dude didnt you used to be a nyo main?" those words cut deep man, real deep :(
My Predictions for EVO 2019:

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition
Dragon Ball FighterZ
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Injustice 2
Tekken 7
SoulCalibur VI
