Shenmue characters modded into Dead or Alive 5

shenmue-dead-or-alive-5-02Leading up to Dead or Alive 5’s release in August 2012, the game’s director Yosuke Hayashi revealed that he wanted Shenmue’s Ryo Hazuki as a playable character in the game.

Of course, that never came to pass, but thanks to Dead or Alive 5 Last Round being released on Steam recently, a thriving modding community has sprouted up, and now the first Shenmue retextures have been released.

Shenmue Dojo forum member Esppiral released the first retextures today of Ryo (retextured from Jacky) and Lan Di (from Akira), and recreated the iconic Hazuki dojo.

shenmue-dead-or-alive-5-01Esppiral wrote that full character swaps won’t be a reality until the game is fully decrypted, so these retextures will have to do for now.
