Dead or Alive 5’s Jann Lee And Leifang Take On Mariposa, Bass, And Tina

By Ishaan . July 19, 2012 . 2:01pm

This morning, Tecmo Koei confirmed that staple characters, Tina and Jann Lee, will both return for Dead or Alive 5, and showed off footage of the two characters, which you can watch here. We also have screenshots of Jann Lee teaming up with Lei Fang to take on La Mariposa and another masked wrestler, “Mr. Strong” (who I believe is actually Bass). Tina’s in there, too.


You can view the new screens below. The stage in the screenshots is “Fighting Entertainment”—an electrified ring surrounded by an audience.


Dead or Alive 5 will have optional missions in the game’s story mode that teach the player how to use both basic controls and more advanced techniques. Additionally, the new Training Mode lets you adjust your AI opponent’s behaviour, including input recording, recovery time from staggers and more.

    the game is going to be the best in the series yet

    TINAAAAAAAAA!!! Bass is a very busy dude, by day he works as rig worker but at night he’s a masked wrestler. (The rest of the time he must be keeping on a eye on/stalking Tina)

  • MrJechgo

    So, they’re adding challenges now… interesting. However, if there’s one thing I REALLY wish that they’ve fixed here is the fact that during single-player tag-team matches, your partner was CPU-controlled, NOT under your control. I hope that they make it that you can control both characters… because it was a pain in Dimensions.

    *looks at pictures of Leifang*

    Isn’t this… MORE fanservice then Less? I mean. I never really remembered Leifang for showing off a lot of skin in this fashion.
    But I digress.

    The game looks very pretty, but I’m still erring on the side of caution here.

    “…and another masked wrestler, ‘Mr. Strong’ (who I believe is actually Bass).”
    Mr. Strong…given that “strong” is the English equivalent of “fuerte”, anyone think this is a winking nod to a certain luchador in Street Fighter?

    Well, whatever.  More wrestlers = more fun in my book.  It’s only a matter of time until I get to giant-swing some ninjas.

  • Tee Niitris

    Is it me, or do the grapplers in DoA have the best movesets? I mean, they have some painful and impressive looking wrestling moves. If only Team Ninja would give the striking fighters the same treatment.

    • Nitraion

      Gotta agree with that moveset in DoA give more ouch…..
      it seems in this DoA they give more ouch effect

    Lei Fang and Jan Lee look a lot like they used to but Tina and probably Bass do look different and I can’t get used to any of the new character designs.
    Man I hate them.

    • Anime10121

       I used to hate’m too, but after Kasumi, Ayane, and Hitomi’s off designs everyone else has seemed to benefit IMO.

      • James Smith

        Yeah I think those three suffered the most on the redesigns and sadly they happen to be my favorite characters so I’m obviously biased against DOA5’s designs.
        If they actually re-redesigned them and made them look good I’d be very happy and would pre order already.

        • Anime10121

           Well Lei Fang’s my favorie:P  and she actually looks a lot better with her new looks!  But yeah I like Ayane, but that new design has bugged me ever since its debut in Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 :(

  • Nitraion

    Hmm i wish they added mode like quest mode or something but oh well the story mode is still there i’m still buying it….

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Man, stop teasing me here Team Ninja.^^ You make me can not wait for the game here.^^

    Here i can only hope that this game will be great here as Ninja Gaiden Sigma 3 that time also had this big exposure but did badly there.T_T

  • Göran Isacson

    Ha ha oh Bass. Wears a mask but doesn’t hide the beard. The hilarious steps a father will go to in order to get his daughter to…

    … Why does he hound Tina again? Can’t for the life of me remember what they’re actually feuding about.
