Team NINJA, today released new details for DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE set for a fall 2013 launch on PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. The dream lineup gets even deadlier with the addition of VIRTUA FIGHTER’s Indy Car bad boy and Jeet Kune Do master Jacky Bryant along with long time DOA fan favorite Ein, who returns in incredible fashion, showcasing stunning new character and costume designs. Team NINJA has also revealed two spectacular new stages and additional costumes and modification options for the ultimate Dead or Alive 5 package, a must-have for all fighting game fans.
Jacky Bryant, known as Blue Flash in indie racing circles, is the fourth fighter to crossover from the VIRTUA FIGHTER universe. Older brother to Sarah Bryant, Jacky has resolved to take down the mysterious organization J6 who has targeted Sarah. Entering a new type of battle, Jacky will collect information to prepare for the inevitable showdown with J6. Skilled in the art of Jeet Kune Do, Jacky brings his own style to the arena with mercilessly fast chains and combos forcing opponents to stay on the defensive.
Fan favorite, Ein makes his first return to the franchise since DOA2. Known as “The Iron Fist with a Lost Past”, Ein was discovered deep within the Black Forest of Germany without any memory of his past. Saved by a karate master, he eventually learned his true identity as Hayate, Kasumi’s brother, and of his kidnapping by DOATEC for the purpose of human research for “Project Epsilon”. However, whether his memory has fully returned is questionable. Ein is a well-rounded fighter ideal for fighters new to DOA whose deadly karate punches send opponents flying into walls and Danger Zones.
There are even more dynamic interactive stages in DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE with the reveal of “Lost World” and “Forest”. In “Lost World”, high above the clouds a battle rages atop a steep vertical stone cliff against a backdrop of distant waterfalls. Fighters must take extra caution in the deceptively serene stage riddled with hazardous areas of narrow footing and massive stone pillars that result in extra damage when thrown against. The second stage “Forest” takes fighters into the fall season in a dense forest replete with the beautiful hues of autumn foliage. Battling along a single road that gets increasing steep as it approaches the mountains, players will use elevation to gain a strategic advantage on their opponent.
Additionally, DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE brings a wealth of new costume and options to the DOA champions. Hitomi sports a new hairstyle with her new denim jacket and jean outfit. Kasumi’s new blue cardigan stands out against the red, orange and yellow tones of the “Forest” stage. Christie is likely to wield even harsher punishment outfitted as a police officer. And this is just the start, with these being just a few of the many costumes that will be included in DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE the best 3D fighting experience to date.
DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE is developed by Team NINJA and published by Tecmo Koei America.

NEW YORK, May 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Registration for the 2013
Tunnel To Towers (T2T) 5K Run & Walk officially kicks off on May 23,
2013. The events will take place in Cincinnati; Columbia, S.C.; Fort
Lauderdale; Mobile, Ala.; New York City; Nashville; Orlando; Raleigh,
N.C.; San Antonio; Savannah, Ga.; and Vero Beach, Fla. during the month
of September. Registrants at www.T2Trun.org prior to June 1 will

In a show of support, Actor and Director Steve Buscemi stars in a video
encouraging participation. “I can’t say enough about this tremendous
volunteer organization,” said Buscemi. “I’ve seen how their support has
helped our first responders and military heroes, not to mention the
ongoing support they provide for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. It’s
an honor to be a part of the Stephen Siller T2T Foundation.” Prior to
acting, Buscemi served with the Fire Department, City of New York as a
member of Engine 55. The video message, which will run on TV and
online, can be seen here: Run/Walk/Honor – T2T 5K Run & Walk Series.
Proceeds from the T2T 5K Run & Walk events benefit the most seriously
injured service heroes including quadruple and triple amputees who have
made extraordinary sacrifices. Participants can create their own “T2T”
profile page online, which highlights their personal photos and
stories. They can also compete for prizes to raise the most funds and
recruit the most friends.
The Tunnel To Towers Run first began in 2002 as a memorial to FDNY
hero, father of five, Stephen Siller. On September 11, 2001, Stephen
was on his way home from the night shift to play golf with his three
older brothers. When he heard what was happening at the World Trade
Center site, Stephen turned his car around and drove towards the site
of the attacks. With his truck stuck in panicked traffic outside the
Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, Stephen courageously strapped on 60 lbs. of
fire gear and ran approximately three miles from the Brooklyn Battery
Tunnel to the Twin Towers. Stephen was last seen with his brothers of
Squad 1, all of whom perished. In honor of Stephen and all those that
lost their lives on September 11 and while serving, the Tunnel To
Towers Run program champions our heroes “in the line of duty” – the
first responders and United State military, ensuring that together “We
will Never Forget.”

About the Wanted
Together as a group since 2009, the Wanted – Tom Parker, Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, and Nathan Sykes – have become front-page news with their ferociously infectious tunes, rock solid friendship and laddish charms. Since the UK release of “All Time Low” (from their self-titled debut album of 2010), they have become a sensation in the UK, Ireland, South East Asia, and across Europe, piling up a string of number 1 singles in the UK. They have artfully transcended the ‘boy band’ mold and brought a blast of much-needed fresh air to British pop music. From their roots as a band who paid their dues performing in seedy nightclubs and working school tours that took them across the whole of the UK and the world, the Wanted have gone on to worldwide success, with smash hits such as “All Time Low” “Chasing The Sun’ and “Glad You Came” – which was a Billboard Chart Number 1. They kicked off 2013 picking up a People’s Choice Award and a brand new world-wide album will follow in the fall.
