This is the first "good" footage of Eliot and Brad Wong in action in DOA5. Awesome video that also shows a new stage called "Home", which we could see in the background of the Alpha Demo menu. In gameplay, Eliot seems to have a MUCH improved juggling capacity with those insane refloats. He also got a new high punch that executes in 9 frames and breaks guards that can work to interrupt faster characters and according to DrDogg, a high-level player from FreeStepDodge working for the IGN Pro League, Eliot has guaranteed launchers and other moves after successfully parrying. If all these is true then we might be up for a very solid character that actually gets useful stuff from his tools unlike his DOA4 counterpart.
Brad on the other part has a new handstand that allows him to use some very fast kicks. From what some players say, his transitions between stances are now safe so he can do them without fear of being thrown or interrupted as easily as in DOA4 but the general consensus right now is that he's still too slow and doesn't seem to have enough tools to beat high-level players using other characters that are already known to be very good like Jann Lee, Tina, Rig or Eliot himself. I hope we're all wrong though because it's about time Brad is good in a DOA game.
Dead or Alive 5 comes out on September 25th in North America and will be available for both the Xbox 360 and PS3.
