Hudson revealed its intention to capitalise on the rebirth of the fighting game with the announcement this weekend of Bloody Roar 5.
In a brief message on Twitter, the developer said: "New Bloody Roar sequel is in production! We'll post more soon," with hashtags implying that the game is planned for release next year.
This will be the first appearance of the series - which first appeared in arcades and on PlayStation in 1997 - since 2003 PlayStation 2 release Bloody Roar 4.
