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.
