We recently got our hands on near-final code for the upcoming installment of the 3D fighting series Dead or Alive 5. The preview build gave us access to the game’s arcade and versus modes--12 of the game’s roster were playable, including Virtua Fighter's Akira.
The rock-paper-scissors style gameplay will be familiar to fans of the series, with battles taking place in interactive and highly destructible environments. The series’ signature danger zones make an explosive return; a player knocked in a particular direction will trigger a damaging quicktime event, including exploding power generators and flaming missile strikes, that set the whole stage into motion for the rest of the round.
Check out a little of what Dead or Alive 5 has to offer below!
