    The only videos are the match videos. The rest are articles. I'll try to update with a list of characters in the match videos, but that's still pending. If I had to guess, you'll see Rig, Ayane, Jann Lee, La Mariposa, Hayate, and maybe Christie...

    Yes. Mystik is currently deep in the mountains training her DOA5 knowledge. Rikuto went to Russia to find Bayman's beret.

    That's just what he wants you to think. The truth is that Rikuto has had the beret since DOA4 after Bayman passed it on to him. Now Bayman is fighting in the DOA5 tournament to prove he deserves it again.

    Any chance you'll be revealing new characters or going over them as they're revealed, most likely via famitsu, but doesn't hurt to ask.

    I won't be revealing any new characters, but IF any are revealed during the 12 Days of DOA5, there's a chance I might make mention of them, or that we'll see match videos or something.

    The schedule is the minimum amount of content you'll see. Depending on how things go, there could be more content added to some days. Then of course you'll have the event on 8/18 with the new build.

    The majority of DOA majors are on the east coast or in the midwest. This is the first "big" tournament next to EVO, and I sadly don't see DOA 5 being added to EVO next year. There's a chance, obviously, but for whatever reason, I don't see it happening, unless the tournaments prior to EVO have good enough turnouts to warrant the game being added.

    What tournaments are before EVO?

    It's not a matter of "before Evo" really. Evo usually announces its games in January, so the decision is probably made in December. DOA5 would basically need good turnouts or at least good tournament momentum between late September and mid to late December.

    That would include IPL5, MLG Dallas (?) and NEC as the big ones off the top of my head during that time period. IPL and MLG aren't confirmed to have DOA5, but I'm pretty sure NEC is. I guess Season's Beatings as well, but I don't know if that's before or after DOA5 releases.

    Jeebus, that's crazy. I'd assume most of those are on the east coast (or in the midwest), which prices me out of those. I'm seriously lucky IGN decided to partner with Hot Import Nights to do tournaments at their shows, otherwise I wouldn't be able to go to any until next year. :(
