It was revealed in the latest trailer for Tecmo’s long-running Dead or Alive series that Virtua Fighter character and series mascot Akira Yuki will join the cast of Dead or Alive 5 as a guest character.

Series creator and former Team Ninja head Tomonobu Itagaki has often cited the Virtua Fighter series as a major influence on his games, and has expressed interest in a crossover between the two series for several years. Recent interviews with Team Ninja staff have also mentioned a huge amount of praise for the franchise.

It is unknown if another Virtua Fighter character will appear in the title, but the series is known for having two or more partner characters for players to team up with in Tag Team mode. Dead or Alive 5 has no specific release date, but Tecmo has announced that they are committed to launching it sometime within 2012.

Check out the gameplay trailer and reveal after the break.
