Team Ninja has revealed some new features and characters that will be coming to Dead or Alive 5.

DOATEC leader Helena Douglas and former DOATEC scientist Lisa Hamilton make a return to this fighting game series with DOA5. The characters bring new styles and techniques for battling it out in the game. Helena has a quick and elegant fighting style that matches with her life of being an opera singer and a Pi Gua Quan martial artist. Lisa Hamilton, aka La Mariposa, is a luchadore and fights in the luche libre style that has opponents trying to guess what the next attack will be.

Dead or Alive 5 also includes new online features such as 16-player online tournaments with the ability to set up brackets, an online dojo to practice moves with other players, ability for spectators to chat with those fighting, and being able to post titles and records on Facebook.

DOA5 is shaping up as one of the top fighters to keep an eye out for when it is released but until then check out this new video showing of the new characters.
