If you weren’t aware, “I’m A Fighter” is one of the songs used on the Dead or Alive 5 soundtrack. Dead or Alive 5 released back in 2012 and there hasn’t been one since. So could the hint in the Tweet allude to a new Dead or Alive entry in the franchise? Is Team NINJA going to bring Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 to the West? OK, so not likely to be the latter but we’ll have to see what Team NINJA has planned after the finals.
