Team Ninja, the developers behind the Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden series, plan to announce a new title at this week's Tokyo Game Show, according to a tweet from their official account.

The team noted through the tweet that they announced Dead or Alive 5 at least year's Tokyo Game Show and that they plan to announce a new console game at this year's show as well.

Dead or Alive 5 is due out later this month for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Team Ninja, formerly headed up by Tomonobu Itagaki, is also working on Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge for the Wii U. While the team has mostly worked on Dead or Alive or Ninja Gaiden games in the past, in 2010 they did develop Metroid: Other M for the Wii. The developer also worked on Ni-Oh, a historic action game, for a brief time before it disappeared in 2006.

Itagaki left Team Ninja in 2008 amidst allegations of withholding bonuses and a lawsuit. He since went on to form Valhalla Game Studios with other former Team Ninja members and is working on Devil's Third for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
