Some time back, we reported that Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate Arcade would be receiving a new character. According to Siliconera, the latest issue of Famitsu has revealed that this character is an entirely new addition named Marirose. All that we know of this new fighter so far is that she will be voiced by Mai Aizawa, who some may recall as the voice of Lapis in Rune Factory Frontier and Ayano in the anime Lucky Star.
Other details about Marirose, including how she plays and whether or not she’ll be made available for the home console versions, have yet to be divulged.
Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate Arcade is set to have its first location test this weekend at Club Sega Shinjuku West in Tokyo. Hopefully we’ll learn more about Marirose then but, for now, feel free to let us know what you think of this news in the comments.
UPDATE – A scan of the Famitsu article showcasing Marirose recently surfaced online. The article also provides a look at a non-Halloween version of the Lorelei stage that will be available in the arcade release.
