Why wait for the character roster to be announced for your favourite fighting game, when you can hack the demo and discover it for yourself? That’s exactly the mindset one NeoGAF poster adopted, having hacked the source code of a recent Dead or Alive 5 demo in order to make a series of interesting discoveries.

It turns out, as previously hinted by Team Ninja’s Yosuke Hayashi, Akira won’t be the only brawler to make the jump from Virtua Fighter into Tecmo Koei’s cinematic brawler. Hackers found references to both Sarah Bryant and Pai Chan within the demo’s source code.

We won’t reveal the game’s full character list here for fear of spoilers, but, if you’re absolutely bursting to know, the full roster’s posted on NeoGAF.
