Besides the copious amounts of cleavage, one of the best parts of the Dead or Alive series has always been the tag team battles.
Ever since Dead or Alive 2 you could double up on the brutal beat downs with flashy tag combos and cool looking choreographed attacks. The mode was always a blast to play especially with three friends on the same couch.
Well the good news is Tag Battle is confirmed for Dead or Alive 5 and it looks better than ever.
In addition to Tag Battle, Tecmo has also confirmed that Jann Lee and the sexy luchadora Lisa Hamilton will be making their glorious return. Tag mode and returning characters were all conveniently featured in a brand new trailer coupled with a smattering of new screens.
Tecmo also took the time to highlight some of the improvements the training mode would be getting. They are promising a wealth of useful options like adjusting the dummy’s blocking, stagger recovery, movement, and most importantly input recording so you can test any scenario you can think of – a valuable tool for any fighting game. Optional missions will also be available in story mode that will go through basic controls to advanced techniques.
For all the talk about Team Ninja wanting to make a more accessible game its great to see them putting in useful features for those who want to go deeper.
