So, one of the biggest things I've been excited about is how much better all the character models look for this DOA 5. They have more of a realistic bent to them rather than all looking like anime real dolls which is great. Each character especially the girls have distinctive faces and jawlines now. Just look at this comparison of Helena...
I mean... she actually has facial structure now and her hair looks like.... hair. Really hoping this game does well as its up against Tekken Tag Tourney 2 in September. It seems that even though Ninja Gaiden 3 was a bit of a blunder that they have put some real work into this. Even the alpha demo I played was extremely polished looking for was was supposedly an alpha build of the game.
