Dead or Alive 5 Developer Videos Show Gen Fu vs. Pai


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.
