With a series of trailers that have revealed constant reimaginations of the series iconic cast and a few guests from Virtua Fighter, many were wondering if Dead or Alive 5 would introduce any new characters to the series. Earlier this year someone dug through the game's demo and found a list of all characters that could have potentially been in the game, along with something called "Rig", which has actually been revealed to be a new character debuting in the title.
Rig is a Canadian Tae Kwon Do fighter who in his debut trailer, has quite the chemistry with the cast that sets up battles. Meeting Christie in a bar for drinks, Rig later knocks her out by throwing her off of a ledge. He then meets up with Bass later and mocks him for bringing his bike to an island in the middle of the ocean.
Aside from showing off the new character, the trailer's voices are in all english, which confirms the game will be the only console fighting game in the series to feature English voices since 2000's Dead or Alive Hardcore.
