Earlier in the week, it was revealed that Virtua Fighter’s main man, Akira, would be making an appearance in Tecmo’s Dead or Alive 5. Well, now it seems that more fighters from the Virtua Fighter cast might be joining him soon.
Team Ninja boss Yousuke Hayashi reveals to Famitsu that it was him who asked SEGA to let Akira appear in DoA 5 – although “ask” might be being kind at this point as Hayashi reveals that he was somewhat close to attacking SEGA to consider putting Akira in the game.
Now due to Hayashi’s “asking” and whatnot, he now concedes that Akira might not be the last character to make a guest appearance in the game. It’s quite vague if he means we’ll get more VF characters or if he’s referring to other fighting game franchises’ characters also making an appearance.
Also of note, Akira’s character commands in DoA5 will remain basically unchanged from Virtua Fighter.
