'Dead or Alive 5' welcomes Brad Wong and Eliot

Dead or Alive 5 expands its roster with Brad Wong and Eliot.

Team Ninja has two more Dead or Alive 5 fighters to reveal at Gamescom, Brad Wong and Eliot, who made their series debuts in Dead or Alive 3 and 4, respectively. Newly released screenshots from the "fighting entertainment" game practically dare you to contest publisher Tecmo Koei's claim that Brad and Eliot "look more realistic than ever."

For the lapsed Dead or Alive fan, we'll remind you that Eliot is a practitioner of the explosive Xing Yi Quan style of martial arts. He's the youngest contestant in Dead or Alive 5, and a student of longtime DOA fighter Gen Fu. Brad Wong, who seemingly completed his quest for the legendary booze known as "Genra" in DOA 4, returns to fight for reasons unknown. Brad does his punching, kicking, and throwing in the Zui Quan — or "drunken fist" — style, which explains the gourd.

You can check out Brad and Eliot duking it out alongside the rest of the Dead or Alive 5 cast in the gallery below, which also includes a peek at the game's online menus and Facebook integration.

Dead or Alive 5 is coming to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on September 25th in North America and Japan. European fighting game fans get DOA 5 on September 28th.
