Dead Or Alive 5: Helena's Version Of Opening Ceremonies

It's tough to call it "opening ceremonies" when we've still got over six weeks to wait. But it's called "opening declaration," so it sorta makes sense.

The latest Dead or Alive 5 trailer sees DOATEC CEO Helena explaining to everyone that despite some setbacks, everything is going along smoothly and the new tournament is ready to begin.

Yeah, there's something of a story in DoA5, just as there's a little story in any fighter. It's never the focus and the plot is always cheesy as hell, but really, nobody cares. At least we get some stunning new visuals and cinematography in this new trailer and besides, Helena is my favorite DoA girl, anyway. I'm terrible at fighting games but I had her down back in DoA2: Hardcore on the PS2. ...down, as in, I could do all her moves, not down, like I have her down on a bed somewhere...there's no real-life Helena...is there?

Bad. Ass. Love Helena and all the ladies with the bounce but I also can't wait to get back to some of Brad Wong's drunken boxing.

Rumors of my demise have been wildly exaggerated :)

He's been trying to avoid all positive mention of Darksiders II because it's making him drool too much.

Closest you'll get Ben is Sarah Carter who played Helena in the DOA movie.

I think I saw Eliot in there and he was my best when I played DOA4 before my XBOX ringed and was thrown out my window.

Eliot was holding the plate on his finger near the beginning of the vid =)

Gosh darn I hope he is in the game, and that wasn't just some sort of cameo. I really loved his style.

True she was basically just a hot blonde, and I'm sure if you ended up with her and called her Helena the relationship would be promptly ended.

I've tried many times to pick a favorite DOA girl, it is not actually possible.

I kind of like Christie and Hitomi the most...but then again....all the rest are good too. But those two are probably my personal favourites.

Wow. SO PUMPED. Helena is my favourite Dead or Alive babe. And I am so ready for this game. And the story is really good if you look into it, Dimensions on 3DS compiled the story of the series into one game (a little sloppy but oh well).
Day one buy for sure.
