The lights are on
Most of us are busy paying attention to PAX, but during a Japan Gamer's Live event this weekend, Koei Tecmo announced a new entry in the Dead or Alive fighting game series, entitled Last Round.
Tecmo Koei producer Yosuke Hayashi revealed that Dead or Alive 5: Last Round would released next spring on Japanese PS4s and Xbox Ones. No word yet on weather or not we’ll see a Western release, but since the series usually makes its way over here, we’d bet it’s likely. Dead or Alive 5 released back in September of 2012, so this is likely a substantial update to that title, but we’ll have to wait a bit for further details.

Our TakeThis is a little surprising, and it's interesting that Tecmo Koei didn't want to do anything at this year's PAX, but given that fighting games remain a bit more popular in Japan, it makes sense that it would reveal the game out there.
