Neither of these characters are new to the Dead or Alive universe, so it's no surprise to learn they will appear in Dead or Alive 5, but it's always nice to see old friends (beat the crap out of each other).

Along with the announcement there are some screens showing the two duke it out and sharing a lovely meal. Tecmo has also sent a long the first episode of its Fighter Chronicles series that features the team behind Dead or Alive 5 walking around outside talking about the future of their beloved series.

Dead or Alive 5 is coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on September 25.
