Dead or Alive 5's roster of characters will include returning fighters Helena Douglas and Lisa Hamilton, as well as an expanded set of online functionality, publisher Tecmo Koei announced today.

Helena debuted in Dead or Alive 2, while Lisa — also known as the luchadora La Mariposa, "The Butterfly" — first showed up in Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball. Helena has a "quick yet graceful" fighting style, and she's back to reform the Dead or Alive Tournament Executive Committee (DOATEC) and welcome any competitors to a new tournament. The mysterious Lisa, who fights with an acrobatic lucha-libre flair, has her own motivations for returning to the tourney.

Developer Team Ninja released a quick clip of the two characters duking it out in a new undersea location, Depth. The elevator to the stage crumbles under the water pressure, and hunks of metal fly off it into the fighting area. Check out the video below, along with screenshots of Lisa and Helena.

Dead or Alive 5 boasts the franchise's most robust online package yet, with the ability to set up 16-player tournament brackets, chat about matches in spectator mode, and view statistics for each player. An online dojo is available for head-to-head practice sessions, and once players turn training into wins, they can brag about them on Facebook.

Dead or Alive 5 is due out September 25th on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
