Dead or Alive 5 Character Info

The fifth game in the fighting franchise, Dead or Alive 5 was released not too far back and although most fighting games lack story, the team at Tecmo have done a great job at portraying all of the character's personal tales within the base story of the game itself, giving players many reasons to choose their favorite fighting characters besides their 'profiles.'

So who have we gotten in the fifth installment to the main franchise?

Dead or Alive 5 includes 24 characters, many of which have been included in previous games. These will include the 20 starter characters listed below:

Brad Wong, Ayane, Bass, Bayman, Christie, Eliot, Hayate, Helena, Hitomi, Jann Lee, Kokoro, Kasumi, Leifang, La Mariposa, Tina, Zack, and of course, Ryu Hayabusa.

You'll also start with two new characters from the beginning, a mysterious hooded figure by the name of Rig, and Virtua Fighter superstar, Mila.

Unlockable characters will also include three other Virtua Fighter cameos, Gen Fu, and the notoriously tough-as-nails Alpha 152 from Dead or Alive 4.

When I get my hands on the game, my main goal is to unlock alpha 152, to make up for the times the character in Dead or Alive 4 tormented me for months.

What custom controller would you make to represent Dead or Alive?
