LOS ANGELES--Fighting game fans have two new dates to circle on their calendars. Tecmo Koei has announced that Dead or Alive 5 will arrive on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 25, with Atlus' brawler Persona 4 Arena landing August 7 on the same platforms.
Dead or Alive 5 is the first major installment in the series without Tomonobu Itagaki as head of developer Team Ninja. The game will see a lot of the cast returning, along with newcomers like Virtua Fighter's Akira.
As for Persona 4, the North American release will include the original Japanese voicing as well as a new English audio track, which Atlus says is "easily toggled" in the settings menu for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions.
