Taito unveiled the player characters for the Japanese arcade version of Left 4 Dead, and it's certainly a different type of crew to what's come before. The new heroes are (left to right) American bartender and ex-marine Jordan Blake, university student Yusuke Kudo, half-American, half-Japanese tour guide Sara Kirishima and high school student Hirose Haruka.

The international mixture comes from the retained American setting, with the Japanese characters visiting the States on holiday - it's always a pain when you have to deal with a zombie outbreak on vacation. It's strikingly a younger cast compared to either Left 4 Dead game, and we wouldn't bat an eyelid if someone told us we were looking at Japan's version of Scooby Doo. Minus the dog, that is, which would be somewhat weird.

Left 4 Dead: Survivors, as it's called, comes to test locations in Tokyo this weekend. To see how else it differs from the original, check out Taito's trailer and the much more involved user interface.
