The new character designs and lifelike details will continue to be embraced by the Dead or Alive franchise, as will all the new styles and even deadlier techniques, reflecting on the look and feel of the intensity of the new Dead or Alive generation.
Tina, also known as “The Superstar” is daughter of the legendary wrestler, Bass. From a young age, Tina has been trained by her father, showing amazing technical skill at wrestling, and tying up opponents with a combination of arm and leg locks, and powerful throws. Tin has joined the Dead or Alive Tournament seeking super-stardom at a whole new level, greater than her father’s!
Jan Lee, also known as “A Scorching Soul” is a self-taught master of Jeet Kune Do. Jann Lee is always seeking the thrills of a battle. As an orphan, Jan Lee taught himself how to fight by watching martial-arts movies. He taught himself the deadly fast kicks and sudden hard hitting jabs to the point where he became extremely confident and somewhat cocky. Jann Lee seeks joins the Dead or Alive Tournaments with the goal of becoming the greatest fighter of all time while trying to avoid the obsession of Lei Fang who’s been him since he saved her from a street gang as a child.
Jann Lee and Lei Fang fight off against the masked wrestlers Mariposa and Mr. Strong. The fighters compete in an electrified ring surrounded by hyped up fans. Set in an filled wrestling arena, fighters have to be careful trying to outmaneuver their opponents to avoid the high voltage coursing through the ropes. The slightest touch could stun them, making them extremely vulnerable to the vicious attacks from a tag team.
Dead or Alive 5 also features an improved Training Mode that lets players control more features than any of the Dead or Alive games. There are many options now available on the setting screen that range from an opponent’s AI behavior to recovering time, and much more! Players could also find missions during Story mode battles so they could learn everything from basic controls to the more advanced fighting skills!
