Team Ninja head Yosuke Hayashi said less than a month ago that he'd be keen to do a Dead of Alive/Virtua Fighter crossover. Little did we know they were already making it happen. Crafty bugger.
Team Ninja has released this new Dead or Alive 5 trailer which confirms that Virtua Fighter's Akira Yuki as a playable character in the game.
No more details have been announced, so we assume he'll be in all versions out of the box.
The trailer also shows what Team Ninja meant when it called the game 'fighting entertainment', as the bout unfolds on a giant water raft that breaks away as is rushes downstream through a cave.
