This is a bit weird. We actually played as Tina during our Dead Alive 5 hands-on during E3, but only today has Team Ninja decided to reveal that the lithe, nubile wrestler and daughter of Bass Armstrong is joining the growing roster of fighters. She's joined by Jeet Kune Do master and DoA mainstay, Jann Lee.

There's a whole bunch of screenshots and a new trailer to coincide with the arrival of the two characters, with the so-called 'Scorching Soul' Jann Lee, pairing up with Lei Fang to take on Bass Armstrong's wrestiling alter-ego Mr. Strong and Mariposa.

Taking place in a newly unveiled arena called 'Fighting Entertainment', the pairs fight in Dead or Alive 5's returning Tag Mode in an electrified ring surrounded by the baying masses. Dead or Alive 5 will also boast a vastly improved Training Mode, with a plethora of options to play with including the behaviour of AI opponents and an input recorder.

Dead or Alive 5 is out on September 25th, 2012. Check out all 22 screenshots in the gallery and the new trailer below.

Glad to see yet another one of my favourites is returning for DOA5, I'm just hoping that ALPHA-152, Genra & Raidou don't make a return, since the first two are beyond broken and Raidou just sucked in DOA: Dimensions.

I just hope the outfit Zack is wearing on his profile on the official DOA5 site is not his default one, he just looks weird and I preferred how he dressed in the previous titles (for those who haven't seen the official site, the best way I can sum up Zack's new look is with two words "Disco Clown"
