If you’re really keen to play Virtua Fighter without, y’know, actually playing Virtua Fighter, then it looks like Dead or Alive 5 is going to have your curious demands covered.

Not content with adding Virtua Fighter’s Akira Yuki to the roster, Team Ninja’s Yosuke Hayashi has hinted that more characters from SEGA’s well liked fighting franchise may make the jump to Dead or Alive 5.

Speaking with Famitsu (via Andriasang), Hayashi insinuated that Akira probably won’t be the only character making the jump to Dead or Alive. It’s unclear whether he means we’ll be getting additional fighters from Virtua Fighter or an alternative franchise – but the former makes the most sense to us.

Go on then Virtua Fighter fans: who would you like to see make the cut? We’re gunning for Shun Di or Jeffry.
