Eeeek! I was wondering when this would get posted!!

Now THIS is looking like DOA with the costumes!!

Kokoro side ponytail!(That whole costume is cute), Eliot Kitty hoodie!, That Mila costume! (One that I actually like!!), Hitomi schoolgirl costume!

Ayane @ 0:33! Helena's f*cking amazing costume @ 1:58! (Dat bomb ass sit-down stun too!), Tina @ 2:03 and her classic DOA2 costume!

Leifang and Pai tag throw!, Kasumi and Hayate tag throw! (LONG overdue)

Rachel and her awesome Power Blow!

So hype, so hype, so hype!! This is what we should've gotten in the first place. but 'tis okay Team Ninja, you are forgiven.

This is one of the best trailers for a fighting game I've seen in a long time.

I knew the extra was Rachel all along but GOODNESS there is so much new stuff. Maybe...just maybe they will get my money after all.

Day one buy for me, this is my favorite video game series. New characters new customs and my favorite virtua fighter character is gonna be playable this is a no brainier.

wow

#11
Liberator said on June 11, 2013 at 7:21 p.m.

Cool! Now please reveal Vanessa Lewis and either Jeffry McWild, Wolf Hawkfield or Taka-Arashi (because DOA really needs at least one big brute guy with wrestling skills from Virtua Fighter)!

@9
It has about as much activity as a squirrel that's been run over and flung into a pond.

JustSTFU said on June 11, 2013 at 7:27 p.m.

LOL damn at first I thought it was Lion from VF
Might as well just make it DoA vs VF now anyway and add all VF characters in =)

#14
TaurusMAGNUS said on June 11, 2013 at 7:27 p.m.

Yay, I was mentioned. Lol

But anyway, I really hope they put in Jean from Virtua Fighter, I then, would be complete.

#15
Galletano said on June 11, 2013 at 7:46 p.m.

^lol, you deserve it.

The DOA cast is slightly bigger than Virtua Fighter if the make an official crossover they may have to add Fighting Vipers characters to help complete the VF side, lol. One can only dream.;)

#16
SMITUS said on June 11, 2013 at 7:48 p.m.

Who's ready for one of the greatest tag teams of all time? Jan Lee and Jacky FTW!!! :D Anyway can't wait for this to drop in fall.

#17
ya_boy said on June 11, 2013 at 7:52 p.m.

All I saw in this trailer was DLC that Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja just can't wait to sell. Be prepared to shell out over 3x the game cost if you want it all. Lol!
And that is why this game will never be Evo material. I will say my boy Jacky is looking awesome though.

#18
Existent said on June 11, 2013 at 8 p.m.

I never seriously considered DOA5, but this is intriguing.

#19
daisetsu said on June 11, 2013 at 8:01 p.m.

harada was calling out tecmo earlier during E3. Tekken X DOA soon?

#20
CosmiicJourney said on June 11, 2013 at 8:01 p.m.

Wtf does DLC have to do with EVO lol? Injustice has plenty of DLC. Lets see if it makes the EVO list o.0

#21
cinnamonpirate said on June 11, 2013 at 8:03 p.m.

How many more characters to be revealed? I'm still waiting for Ryo Hazuuukiii.

#22
Galletano said on June 11, 2013 at 8:04 p.m.

@ 18 ill just buy the full version of the game.

#23
blankson said on June 11, 2013 at 8:06 p.m.

now this is wat i call DOA.

#24
JdotSweapA said on June 11, 2013 at 8:07 p.m.

So that's ANOTHER Ninja Gaiden character slapped on =_= Man, i wanna play DoA5U, but it's almost as if they're deliberately shoving in characters which i wouldn't touch with a barge poll. Momiji, Leon, Jacky, and now the wonderfully boring Rachel. I'm sure the game itself will be solid, but my god, the character roster is just looking uglier and uglier every time i look at it.
Oh well

#25
TrueGamingGuru said on June 11, 2013 at 8:08 p.m.

I knew Rachel was happening, I'm looking forward to getting DOA5 Ultimate. The DOA series was very interesting, and I even gave them a chance.

@18 Don't jump to conclusions, because its way too early to save which costume is DLC and which one will be in the final version. (or free to play) What does DLC have to do with EVO not including DOA, besides there are other gaming tournaments (besides EVO) that have DOA5 tournaments. (but Eventhubs never shows any video, just saying) Can you even explained why Injustice, MVC3, SSFIVAE, and SFXT are in EVO. I bet DLC has nothing to do with EVO choice of games.

#26
TrueGamingGuru said on June 11, 2013 at 8:09 p.m.

@20 Do you even have certain detail links like websites to relate with Harada speaking with Tecmo?

#27
Jin_Masters said on June 11, 2013 at 8:23 p.m.

HOLY S*&T THEY BUFFED THE HELL OUTTA THIS GAME... Did anyone notice that street fighter makoto costume? Man this game looks sweet and they still have more character reveals.

#28
Virtua_Kazama said on June 11, 2013 at 8:23 p.m.

Helena's sit down stun is amazing. Also, the power launchers in this game show great juggle-worthy opportunities.

#29
Kuvio said on June 11, 2013 at 8:41 p.m.

@25 How about don't play those characters?

This trailer was hype!

#30
Syirine said on June 11, 2013 at 8:42 p.m.

all they have to do now is get the netcode right this time but i really don't think they can do it.

#31
ya_boy said on June 11, 2013 at 8:50 p.m.

@21, 26
What I mean is that TN is ultimately more concerned with making a quick buck off of overpriced DLC costumes than making a solid game.

This game may be better than DoA4 but that isn't saying much so they need get back what they had before that.

#32
Devdan said on June 11, 2013 at 9:02 p.m.

I've been playing DoA2 again recently, and going from that to seeing DoA5 agains only reaffirms that I really don't like this games color palette. Oh well. Some of the team attacks with VF characters are neat at least.

#33
gokenhayato said on June 11, 2013 at 9:11 p.m.

this game is looking too good ready for its release

wow you're a smart cookie aren't ya?

#36
LarsMasters said on June 11, 2013 at 9:58 p.m.

Let's hope we can switch characters voice individually (like SSFIVAE) unlike before. I promise you that.

Fit VF characters in Ultimate would be Aoi Umenokouji, Jean Kujo &... Kage-Maru (yet, another ninja (the series' well known ninja), because DOA is full of Ninja since Ninja Gaiden), leaving only 1 randoms.

Another fact, we can't bring back the dead like Tengu, Omega Genra & Raidou

#37
TrueGamingGuru said on June 11, 2013 at 10:01 p.m.

@32 And what does Team Ninja need to get back what they had done before that?

I'm not too sure if Team Ninja is more concerned with making money off their DLC than making a solid gameplay. Here is why I said that...

For starter with DOA5...

They released an Alpha Demo before released the full game. Which is a smart move for fighter games.

Then came with tweaking the gameplay mechanics, they actually fixed the timing on the holds. Since they can't spam holds anymore, they change from 3 hold counters to 4 hold counters. Plus even they add new gameplay mechanics from stage interactive, cliffhangers, power blows, recently add juggle and power launchers feature. Plus DOA5 is very balanced than certain fighters.
If they really don't have concerned with gameplay, they would've done a pretty bad job. Like starter end up making the same gameplay with no improvements, they would've never add new mechanics that makes it different from other fighters, and would've not been balanced at all.

I a DOA player myself played DOA5, All I can say DOA5 is a solid fighter game and Team Ninja really improved from previous versions. Honestly I don't see much what Team Ninja really needs to improve when it comes to gameplay wise, because DOA5 is a solid fighter. I do see part of the Story Mode needed a bit of work, English voices are not the best, (that is common for English dubs for Japanese medias) and certain details could use some work.

For DLC stuff nobody is forcing you to buy their DLC if you choose not to which is understandable, and heck I really have a passionate love for the DOA series. Plus DOA5 was really something that kept me interested over TTT2.

That Sand Stage is straight out of Ninja Gaiden 3. Idc really, but just noting.

And I'm liking Kokoro's and Zack's outfits.

#43
MarthFE said on June 11, 2013 at 11:51 p.m.

already buying the game, but just add sonia now and im happier than anyone could imagine, the game would be perfect, if they keep the sick costumes aaand of course make the DLC from the first DOA5 compatable...

#44
LarsMasters said on June 12, 2013 at 1:22 a.m.

Almost forgot, instead of switching characters language voice individually. There would be a chance to add musics for some stages, & adds custom musics outside DOA (such as on PS versions) on BG/DOA Tunes, either for characters or stages

New characters and stages look amazing.Really nice work TN,not just an update but a whole new rebalanced,extended awesome fighter.Im proud for supporting the series all these years:)

#47
ManRightChea said on June 12, 2013 at 1:31 a.m.

This game looks great. Haven't played DOA competitively since 3. Buyin this, looks great. I for one think VF characters accentuate DOA characters so well. So many positives for me, Ein is back, Leon is back, Jacky in it now (Jann Lee & Jacky team will be epic). The forest and infinite mountain from 3. This game looks amazing. Definite buy for me.
