In the midst of E3, Tecmo Koei has released a new trailer for Dead or Alive 5.
It shows off the game’s fighting engine and environmental effects at work. Kokoro is featured prominently wearing her signature kimono and fighting Akira from Virtua Fighter.
The rest of the video and released screens give a sampling of the costumes that I will no doubt be spending hours to unlock.
Watch the trailer and see some pics after the jump.
My favorites are classic outfits like Ayane’s purple dress with the giant red bow and Lei-Fang’s skimpy evening gown. The biggest surprise is that Sarah Bryant will be joining Akira from Virtua Fighter. We also get a glimpse of Tina Armstrong as she strangles Zack in disgust.
Most importantly, Tecmo Koei has also revealed that the release date will be September 25. With only a few months to go, Dead or Alive 5 is shaping up to be a stylish, brutal, and sexy fighting game.
