Yesterday I was given the honor of writing up some very exciting Dead or Alive 5 news. Today, it turns out it may be more than just Akira coming to the game when it launches in September. Team Ninja head Yosuke Hayashi spoke with Famitsu, and in the same interview that he revealed the Akira cross over, he also hinted that there may be more coming. While he did not say Virtua Fighter characters specifically, it would stand to reason that that is where more fighters will come from.
Hayashi said that he had to get permission from Sega to use Akira, and now that he has passed that hurdle, Akira may not be the only one he shoots for. So who would be some dream characters to show up in the DoA universe, besides a full on Dead or Alive Vs Virtua Fighter? Personally, Kage vs. Ryu would be amazing, or Aoi beating on Kokoro. Lion vs. Lei Fang? Really at this point, I don’t care what characters they add, the more the merrier. There may even be hope for other fighting game universes to clash with DoA at some point. We will keep you updated as we move towards the September release of Dead or Alive 5 of Xbox 360 and PS3.
