This time, the lucky character being announced is Akira Yuki. Akira Yuki is a mascot of the Virtua Fighter series and is now making his way across to Dead Or Alive 5 to join the rest of the previously announced fighters. For the first time, the Dead or Alive series is opening its rosters to other fighting game characters. Here’s a little bit of info about Akira:
Driven by perfection and the desire to relentlessly master his techniques by taking on any challenger, Akira is a welcomed addition to the cast of dynamic characters only available in Dead or Alive 5. Utilizing a Chinese martial art known as Bājíquán, Akira has become a serious, well-disciplined fighter despite his past as an impulsive hot-headed youngster.
Dead or Alive 5 is heading to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in September 2012.
