Dead or Alive 5 will be out in under two weeks, but Team Ninja revealed another two characters for the game as recently as this week. Pai from Virtua Fighter and DoA staple, Gen Fu, will be in the game, and Team Ninja have shared fight videos of both characters, which you can watch below.


Gen Fu vs. Pai Developer Fight #1:



Dead or Alive 5 director, Yohei Shimbori, says that Gen Fu is even more of a close-range fighter than he’s been in the past. “Once you get the hang of his combos, you’ll see a huge jump in how strong he can be,” Shimbori assures.


Gen Fu vs. Pai Developer Fight #2:



Pai is described as a character whose quick movement and special moves set her apart from the others. Shimbori shares: “For holds, she’s all about frame advantage, so it’s important to focus on following up with either her guaranteed combos or other attacks.”


Dead or Alive 5 will be released on September 25th in North America and September 28th in Europe.

    Both look AWESOME!  Never really got the hang of Pai in VF, but I always liked her character!  Hopefully I can use her better in DoA.  Gen Fu is just beyond gangsta.  I love playing the old school masters of Martial Arts in fighting games and dont see that changing  with Gen Fu.  That old man seriously kicks A!!!

      well in VF5FS she is a little easier to use in my opinion, i play her mostly in that game her quick hits are really good but you have to avoid using them to much since they can be predictable.

      Just like the other Virtua Fighters she looks and moves like her FS counterpart, i like that, and i really like that power blow of hers, sees like i’ll be playing her and lei fang ^.^

    Goodness gracious I found myself wincing almost everytime Gen attacked, compared to last time, these videos always seem to show that DOA 5 emphasizes the weight of the attacks of every fighter. Still seeing critical burst and the power blows in these matches, I no longer fear that they would slow matches down

    ‘Kay Team Ninja, this game is on my radar now. I freaking love VF and Pai. Still not used to not hearing the ‘whoosh’-ing noise from her attacks. :P
