Zack and Lei-Fang make their debut in Dead or Alive 5 in a brand new Pre-E3 trailer. Fighting in a circus of sorts with hazards such as tigers, hoops of fire and clown machines, Tecmo is definitely showing that they're not afraid to show off the goofy side of the DOA universe.
Zack, who is definitely the fighting game version of Dennis Rodman (Tecmo has even hired Dennis to voice him), is back with a new flamboyant costume as usual. This time his costume sports a afro that can be knocked off in the middle of a fight. With this attire, it seems as though the Circus stage may be his main stage. Look closely in the trailer, blink and you might miss a taunt that is a homage to Michael Jackson's Smooth Criminal video.
As for Lei-Fang (DOA is about the ladies after all), it is unknown what her main attire is. While Shown here with a costume that fits the stage also, she has appeared in scans from Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu wearing her signature red dress.
With how the Dead or Alive cast is turning out in the realistic reboot of gaming's bounciest fighter, all sights are set to E3 to see what's next in store for the September release.
