Dead or Alive 5 Mila combo video and high-level casuals from Emper0rc0w

EMPRER0RC0W has sent in some new Dead or Alive 5 footage today. The first video is a combo video that he made for Mila, and you can read his description of the video below.

After the jump you can see EMPRER0RC0W face off against the top players in Europe who plays a deadly Leifang. The casuals also switch over to an Ayane vs. Kokoro match in the next video. If you're an enthusiast of the game, don't miss out on the footage!

With good crushes, long range moves, offensive holds, throw strings and great juggle potential, Mila can be very deadly. In this video I tried to demonstrate her different sitdown stuns as well as showed various examples for comboing from and into her "feint" stance. In this video you will also see some of her untechable knockdowns which guarantee the follow up ground throw for major damage (including one variant which can be done from an air juggle).

Dead or Alive 5 director: We definitely want to make more Dead or Alive titles in the future, fan feedback can speed up the process

Dead or Alive 5 director: We definitely want to make more Dead or Alive titles in the future, fan feedback can speed up the process Games Beat recently sat down with Dead or Alive 5 director, Yohei Shimbori, for an interview. Shimbori touches on several topics including how Team Ninja goes about balancing their games, tips for players new to the Dead or Alive franchise and more.

The Dead or Alive 5 director goes on to state that they hope to make another Dead or Alive title in a shorter time span than it took between Dead or Alive 4 and 5. He mentions that if there is a ton of fan demand it may help speed up the process.

Going forward, is Team Ninja hoping to put out future sequels of Dead or Alive on a more regular schedule and avoid another multi-year stretch?

Yeah, we definitely want to make more in the future. But I’m sure there are other things that we need to make before the next one comes out. I don’t think it’s going to be an immediate release of anything right now. But again, if there’s a ton of feedback from fans that want something else, then I’m sure we can step up the process a little more.
