004 B&c 2

Fresh DoA5 character vignette released

Today, Team Ninja released some fantastic footage of newly-revealed Dead or Alive 4 veterans Christie and Bayman in the vignette featured below. Along with the new characters, a simply fantastic stage was revealed.

Titled “Hot Zone”, the stage is an all-out war zone with a large helicopter circling above while militants blast RPG rounds in every which way. By using the character-specific “Power Blow” technique at the battle’s climax, players can cause the helicopter’s subsequent explosion to become a deathtrap for the opposition.

I can’t lie, the fluidity of combat combined with the level of detail that’s getting put into these stages is making me drool all over my keyboard. Now, enjoy the vignette while I find a napkin.
