Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate Scheduled to Release in Japan on September 5; Ein, Virtua Fighter’s Jacky Bryant Announced

UPDATE – Images of Ein and Jacky in Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate from Famitsu’s official story have been added below.

Hayate’s alter ego Ein and Jacky Bryant from Virtua Fighter will be joining the cast of Dead or Alive 5 in the Ultimate update, Famitsu reports. According to Siliconera, the latest issue of the popular Japanese magazine revealed the appearance of these two fighters alongside Ninja Gaiden’s Momoji and Leon, who were revealed last month in the game’s first trailer.

Neither should come as much of a surprise, as Ein was one of the few series regulars who failed to transition to Dead or Alive 5 and Jacky will be following in the footsteps of fellow Virtua Fighter cast members Akira Yuki, Pai Chan, and sister Sarah Bryant.

Information is incredibly scarce at this time, but a Japanese release date of September 5 was also mentioned. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as more details are released. For now, let us know what you think of these additions in the comments below.

    OMG OMG ein is sexxxxy

  • Yperion10000BC

    I will love and support this game in all of its versions.The fact that this is going more and more in a DOA X VF direction is an added bonus.

    i wonder if it will still cost $60….
    or they’ll do what like Capcom did and made Ulitmate $40

    • spades111

      probably $40, the last “ultimate edition” they did was Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor’s Edge for $40

            LESS TALK, MORE ACTION!!

  • Beb0p

    NG3 sucked a lot so NG3RE being 40 isn’t a surprise. DOA5U, maybe can’t say but it’s not like it’s some shltty 2D game with barely any content just for shltcom to just hold off half the content on the disc as dlc a year later.

  • Langdon Herrick

    I’m not sure why I’m excited to play as Leon again. He was never that interesting of a character to begin with, but I’ve been playing as him since DOA2. Character loyalty dies hard I suppose.

    Damn i hate Jacky he is so loud with hes “YEAAAAAH”

    Why they don’t bring Jean Kujo or Eileen or even El Fuerte ? That make a good Lucha Libre team with La Mariposa !

    • Pooh Hardy


      • Langdon Herrick

        You can like Jacky and still acknowledge the fact that his voice sounds like a prepubescent pterodactyl mimicking a poorly-dubbed 70’s kung fu movie.

        And don’t get me started on my own character, Lion.
        Oh Lion, Lion, Lion.

    • MasterScrub

    • Tim Young

      You mean El Blaze. El Fuerte is Capcom… and not exactly popular.

  • Jahmere Durham

    Great now i can deal with Jackys punk ass in DOA as well…..awesome….

  • ArthurBerceuse

    Yeah Jacky!!! Can’t wait for this.

  • Cylith

    Awesome all around. Can’t wait to buy this. Have to say though, it is going to be nice to see Jann Lee top tier get beat by another JKD user. Also, why can’t they add Aoi? Besides her being my main in VF(bias), she would fit this game perfectly. Her counters fit right in. Gee, I wonder why that is?*sarcasm*

  • Sunny

    this game is going to be horrible

  • Simply Chun-believeable ^_~ ♥♥

    Jacky, not Aoi? I thought Jacky was Kicking Vanessa… and Hitomi gets a ponytail and her ORIGINAL, original outfit?? I always pick my characters with their hair out, but more options are always welcome. I wonder if Kokoro got more hair options too?

    And FFS, more tag teams, Helena and Kokoro were too awesome, because they’re two of my mains, as were Leifang and Hitomi, but I really want Kokoro and Leifang to be a team. I always used to think they were related in some way when DOA4 first came out.

    Oh, and DOA2 stages (*Cough* Danger Zone *Cough*)

    Give Leifang/Pai, Kasumi/Hayate, Lisa/Christie, and Jann Lee/Rig etc. actual team throws, and ONLINE PAIR PLAY!!! Please and Thank You. 🙂 ♥

  • gophinobi

    They should add character customization to this game as well, but seeing that people are actually willing to put down a a lot of cash for even the smallest costume packs, it’s probably not gonna happen…sad seeing as it has become a standard for all the other 3D fighters

    40%Flashkick just picked up a new game.

    F*#K yeah, Ein is so much fun to use.

    I hope Kage makes the cut.
