Bouncy bouncy, fighty fighty, probably buyee buyee when it's cheapie cheapie.
As bad as the characterization of women is in fighting games, the characterization of black dudes is way, way worse.
Next generation of jiggle physics.
@BasketSnake: Video games are dumb, welcome to the club.
@GunslingerPanda: The first few ones were good, it is just people dont like the later ones like 4, 2 was well liked from what I remember. This game looks good though, they even got Sarah to look hot.
Anyway, everyone loves boobs and the rap sounds like the dude who did P3.
I haven't seen trailer editing this awful in years... and I loved every second of it.
Next level boob jigglin' technology! Dead o Ali Fi'!
Someone needs to tell them not to run trailers with narrative alongside rap music though, I had trouble focusing on one or the other because they had two voices talking at once.
Indeed. My ears can't handle the hippin' and hoppin' vocal rappin' going on at the same time as the voice overs.
Nice that intro was straight out of 2005
I think fighting games are dumb. Bring the hate..... to my estate.
@SortedeVaras: Bang has a name that people knew would sound silly and it matches his character design. I find Fame Douglas to be the most funny name ever because DOA plays it straight, never realizing that the name is ridiculous.
@Lord_Pent: Bang Shishigami would argue that one.
We have free porn on the internet now days, why pay $60 for this?
To hear people say the funniest name ever: Fame Douglas
Can't wait and perfect thumbnail you picked lol
well, we all now know which game won't be at EVO 2013. JESUS CHRIST, THEIR LIPS DIDN'T LOOK LIKE THEY WERE MOVING. This went back in time and made tekken 6 better. wow
Get yo' ass in the turny, folks!
These games are impossible to take seriously.
holy shit, DOA has a storyline?
Man, the screencap for the video looks exactly out of MGS3.
Man guys, DoA is really silly.
Fuck yes. I know fighting game elitists look down on DoA, but fuck those guys. Not enough Hitomi in this trailer, though. I destroyed on XBL with her in DoA4.
If they would just stick to people fighting and the cheesecake that would be understandably...sexist but understandable....but they add the bad voice acting, the horrible 3rd rate music, and the offensive stereotypes too. When you go beyond a game that is merely 'male gaze' trashy to a game that is tastelessly bad you have crossed a line.
Oh goody, it's time for Team Ninja to make me embarrassed to be a gamer again.
Grasshopper Manufacture tagged them in.
@AjayRaz: You monster.
1) That is a terrible and very fake French Accent.
2) That was some horrible rap music....did that rap artist's KickStarter not get funded so you got him for cheap?
3) Nobody likes Zack in the west in my experience, that is just my opinion, but it feels like there is a broader joke there for the Japanese that I'm not seeing.
I think at the next e3 they need Show host Chris Hansen(Catch a Predator) to sit down with the development team for an interview. He would show them clips form the game and ask them to explain why that is in there. No no sit down an TELL US why Zack is funny Tomonobu Itagaki. No no sit down and tell us why that part of the story is there or why the music stinks....non no please sit down and explain it to us.
Wow, that looked pretty great. I was very much opposed to DOA without Itagaki, but seems worth checking out, there's enough new flavor to it that it's like one of those Animatrix remixes from the perspective of a new director.Someone needs to tell them not to run trailers with narrative alongside rap music though, I had trouble focusing on one or the other because they had two voices talking at once.

On both comments~
This looks appropriately terrible. Might buy it.
What the fuck just happened
@Demoskinos: pre-order cancelled
@Dagbiker said:The name Dead or Alive is very missleading, people very rarly die in this game. I think two people have actually died, That ninja girl, and that french girls father.Genra,Raidou, Helena's mother, her father Fame Douglas, have all died.

Dead or Alive is named such much like the story behind Final Fantasy. When it was released Tecmo was in dire straights and Tomonobu Itagaki had an idea for a fighting game. If it didn't pan out for them the company was going to go under. So, they named it Dead or Alive. Either they made it or they didn't and turns out it was a hit and helped to keep the company afloat.
@AjayRaz: You better buy it. Else I'ma have to bop you on the head.
why did it take them this long to realize they should start dubbing their game into english?
oh .....k so ya
Yay they finally show Helena!!! <3
The name is based on the history of the company. When DoA1 came out Tecmo was in financial trouble and DoA was one of their last big projects to pull them out of the fire, thus the name dead or alive. It was a literally phrase in regards of their company at the time. The same can be said about square-enix back when they were squaresoft. Final Fantasy was literal. It was the "final" fantasy for squaresoft. Fortunately the game did very well and saved the company.
Hip Hop Sounds like the guy from Persona 3.
This isn't the opening cinematic...It was just a trailer.
Still bitter from the 4th DOA game with the game breaking boss fight & since then really just turned off on the whole DOA franchise thanks to the last few lackluster games.
What exactly was game breaking about it? Everything Alpha did was predictable and easily stopped. Maybe if you'd learn how to play you wouldn't have any problems.
I was very skeptical about DOA5 for a long time but after watching this trailer, I'm all stoked again. The story-driven trailer, the old skool hip hop music, the action scenes and less emphasize on the "jiggling" (pity but it's for the best) - DOA5 seems promising now.
Man that hip hop...
Somehow I read that as Pimpin' and it made that line even better.
Certainly not graphically challenged! Looks great.
Remember when polygon girls were hot?
I only want this for the Virtual Fighter charcters
wow, this looks exactly as weird/dumb as it always has, good on them for keeping it real even after losing Itagaki.
