Dead or Alive 5 director Yohei Shimbori shared new footage of the game, as played by "pro players," on Friday. In the video, characters Brad Wong and Eliot duke it out using Drunken Fist kung fu and Xing Yi Quan fighting styles.
Another member of Team Ninja's game staff, producer Yōsuke Hayashi, told Enterbrain's Famitsu last week that there are still more unnannounced characters in the game. (The staff had just revealed the additions of Brad and Eliot at Germany's GamesCom event earlier in the week.) Hayashi added that since some characters will be unlocked as the player progresses through the game, Team Ninja does not have to reveal all of them before the game's release.
Team Ninja and KOEI Tecmo are producing the game for release on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles. The game will arrive in North America on September 25, in Japan on September 27, and in Europe on September 28. The Gamespot website streamed a 149-second-long "Upcoming Declaration" cinematic story trailer earlier this month.
