When the Dead or Alive 5 demo was mined for information, one of the more exciting discoveries was a list that may or may not have revealed the game’s entire cast. While many of the names were familiar, one character named Rig stood out as unfamiliar to long-time fans of the series. The latest issue of Famitsu has revealed that Rig is actually a brand new character. He’ll be voiced by Hiroki Touchi, a Japanese voice actor who has done extensive work for both video games and anime, including Chris in Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

Additional information has yet to be divulged, but we’ll keep you updated as other details and better quality images become available.

UPDATE: According to the new image we’ve included below, Rig is a Canadian fighter that specializes in Tae Kwon Do.
