Dead or Alive 5 Character Relationships and Backstory Explained

We’ve already heard about a new Canadian character named Rig, but what’s going on with the rest of the Dead or Alive 5 universe? You’re probably not as involved with the DoA universe as you might be with Street Fighter or Tekken, so this little chart from Team Ninja should help clear a few things up.

You can see the different relationships between the Dead or Alive 5 characters. You’ll be reminded that Kasumi and Ayane are half-sisters, for example, and that Ryu Hayabusa is friends with Hayate. Click on the image above to get the higher resolution version.

If you click through to the Team Ninja website, you’ll also find that they’ve summarized “the story so far” in each of the four previous Dead or Alive games. Each plot for each title is described in a few short paragraphs, so you’ll get caught up in no time. Or, you know, you could just play the game and forget about the story altogether.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Preview Trailer

You’ve already seen some Tekken Tag Tournament 2 gameplay, but now there is an official trailer with even more information about the upcoming fighting game. As you probably remember, this is the first Tekken game where you have the choice of 1v1, 2v2 or 2v1. That’ll make for some unique matchups.

In the trailer video below, you get a glimpse of the different game modes: Arcade Battle, Ghost Battle, Practice, Time Attack, Team Battle, and Survival, plus Online Mode. There’s also a preview of the character customization, not unlike what you see in Soulcalibur. Expect Tekken Tag Touranment 2 to hit the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this September.
