Dead or Alive 5 seems to be aiming for a crossover of Capcomian proportions. Two more Virtua Fighter cameos have been formally announced, confirming a partial rumor from a months-old leaked roster.
Japanese site Famitsu.com (via Siliconera) revealed Pai Chan and Gen Fu as playable characters. A roster leak from a demo from way back in March had already spilled word of the two, and Gen Fu had been hinted at in trailers, but this is the first official confirmation. These two new fighters will join Akira and Sarah Bryant, also from the VF series.
Steve Watts posted a new article, More Virtua Fighter characters confirmed for Dead or Alive 5.
Virtua Fighter characters Pai Chan and Gen Fu have been confirmed for Dead or Alive 5.
Gen Fu is a Dead or Alive character. Unless I'm mistaking something, "Two more Virtua Fighter cameos have been formally announced..." and "...revealed Pai Chan and Gen Fu as playable characters" make it read like he and Pai Chan are both from Virtua Fighter.
