While the previous Dead or Alive 5 reveal trailers have been relatively serious (as serious as kicking someone into a falling helicopter goes), the latest one takes a complete 180.
After being revealed earlier this week on Famitsu, Tecmo Koei has released footage showing Dennis Rodman…I mean Zack and Lei Fang fighting in a circus themed stage called “The Show”.
Unlike the previous trailers, this one features loads of color and, as expected, Zack is flamboyantly dressed (watch for the part where he is shot out of a clown’s nose!). Lei Fang isn’t in her traditional Chinese dress, but does get her braids back after losing them in DoA4. There’s confetti, rings of fire, afros, weird pants, and a freaking tiger. It makes no sense but who cares, it’s awesome.
