    Synopsis

    The furious fighting action of the Dead or Alive franchise returns with this new installment. Utilizing a unique triangle battle system, Dead or Alive 5 cranks the exciting gameplay up a notch to keep you on your toes. Choose to battle from a roster of fighters that includes Ryu Hayabusa, Hayate, Ayane, Hitomi and more, and unleash powerful combos, devastating Power Blows and overwhelming counters to dominate your opponents.

    Dead or Alive 5 returns the thrilling, amped-up fighting action you've come to expect from the popular franchise. Dead or Alive 5 utilizes a unique triangle system to structure fights, where strikes beat throws, throws beat holds and holds beat strikes. Land one type of move that beats another one and you'll be unleashing a Hi-Counter attack that inflicts more damage. Take advantage of holds to deflect your opponent's strikes and attack back in one move to cause a lot of damage. Immerse yourself in the blockbuster stages that feature dynamic elements, such as crumbling walls, exploding generators or collapsing buildings, and use the new Power Blow to launch your opponent into Danger Zones to cause damage and destruction. Send your opponent off a cliff, and use strikes and throws while he or she is hanging on by a thread to inflict major damage. Quickly sidestep attacks at the last moment and retaliate with your own attack, and knock your opponent into the wall and follow up with a powerful combo to cause additional damage while he or she falls. With exciting new gameplay features, powerful moves, damaging combos, destructible environments and more, you'll have to be on your game if you want to remain Alive.
