Dead or Alive 5 gameplay trailer shows the triangle system

Posted By | On 25th, May. 2012

We have a new gameplay trailer for Dead or Alive 5, which looks fantastic.

Fights in Dead or Alive are based on a triangle system: strikes beat throws, throws beat holds, and holds beat strikes. When you land an attack of one type that beats another type, like landing a strike when an opponent tries to throw, that attack becomes a Hi Counter attack and does even more damage.

Dead or Alive fights are more than just strikes and throws. You have to know how to use holds too. Right when your opponent throws a strike, do a hold to deflect it and attack them back for a lot of damage in one move.

The game will be released on September for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
