Electronic Theatre ImageSEGA and Tecmo Koei Europe have announced a new partnership for Dead or Alive 5 in which the former will handle the publication and distribution of the videogame on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Dead or Alive 5 is set for release later this year, and as part of the agreement will include Virtua Fighter’s Akira Yuki as an exclusive addition to it’s roster.

The Dead or Alive series is not known for it’s adoption of fighters from other franchises – that’s territory normally reserved for Soul Calibur – it was only with Dead or Alive 4 did a character make the leap: a Electronic Theatre Image Spartan from Microsoft Studios’ Halo franchise. In this case the principles of the agreement were very similar, as it was Microsoft who published Dead or Alive 4 back in 2006.

Dead or Alive 5 is currently in development for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and will be published by SEGA later this year on both formats.  Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Dead or Alive 5.
