Virtua Fighter's Pai Chen will appear as a playable character in Dead or Alive 5, new screenshots from the game have confirmed.

Pai joins previously announced Virtua Fighter characters Akira Yuki and Sarah Bryant.

You can take a look at her facing off against Dead or Alive's Gen Fu in our screenshot gallery.

The new addition bolsters Dead or Alive 5's current character roster to 24. It's not known how many characters, if any, are still to be revealed.

Pai is the second new character to be revealed this week. Yesterday, Tecmo Koei revealed female kickboxer Mila.

Dead or Alive 5 launches on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 28.
