Dead or Alive 5 Gameplay Footage Shows Christie vs. Bayman

Tecmo Koei has just released the latest trailer for their upcoming fighter Dead or Alive 5 in it, we’re treated to familiar characters in the franchise with Christie going up against Bayman.

While we don’t see anything revolutionary (it is a fighting game, after all), there now seems to be a little cinematic when you strike the finishing blow on someone.

In the trailer, it shows Christie getting knocked out and then an rpg missile fires in her vicinity to “bounce” her back onto the playing field.

The graphics and presentation are certainly a sight to behold — especially considering this is a fighting game and not a cinematic action-adventure romp but I only hope it doesn’t get too distracting.

Dead or Alive 5 is scheduled to be out later this year for the Xbox 360 and PS3.
