Tecmo Koei has announced good news for fighting games fans. By the end of the year, the company will release a new arcade fighting game in collaboration with Sega. We can easily imagine that it will be released via the ALL.Net P-ras MULTI system (RingEdge2). Tecmo has not released any arcade game for over 10 years, the last being Monster Farm Jump in 2001. The new game's title has not yet been unveiled. However, it could perhaps be a special version of Dead or Alive 5 given that the console version was produced in collaboration with Sega AM2 and features characters from Virtua Fighter. We could also think of a Dead or Alive x Virtua Fighter game. Tecmo has had success with titles such as the Dead or Alive, Tecmo Wold Cup, Ninja Gaiden, Solomon's Key and Gallop Racer series... Update: the game will be Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate: Arcade and it will be out this Winter.
