Team Ninja Talks Tag Power Blows in Dead or Alive 5

on July 24, 2012 8:30 PM

Team Ninja’s Yohei Shimbori recently disclosed some new details on Dead or Alive 5‘s tag battle mode. He speaks specifically about the new ‘tag power blow’ mechanic, which I believe can actually be seen in the recent tag trailer. The powerful technique can only be initiated when both characters on the team have 50% or less life remaining. Yohei-san says that, although the technique isn’t a strong as two separate power blows, it should be more powerful than an ordinary power blow. He also says that, although the attack is powerful, well executed tag combos will still be the most deadly weapon against an opponent.

Dead or Alive 5 will be available this September.
