After the completion of the Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate Official Tournament hosted last night in Japan, Team NINJA head Yosuke Hayashi came to the stage with a few announcements. First, Hayashi announced that Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate: Arcade will be receiving an update in late January, with new costumes for the cast, including newcomer Marie Rose. The update, bringing the title up to Ver.1.04, will also hit DOA5U for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in early February.

Next, Hayashi revealed that Marie Rose, currently exclusive to the arcade version, will be coming to the console versions sometime during the spring. Her arrival will bring the arcade and home versions into parity.

Finally, Hayashi announced that Tecmo Koei already has plans for a DOA5U: Arcade tournament, organized in cooperation with SEGA. Stay tuned in the future for more details in the upcoming updates and tournaments.

    “Next, Hayashi revealed that Marie Rose, currently exclusive to the arcade version, will be coming to the console versions sometime during the spring. Her arrival will bring the arcade and home versions into parity.”

    Oh, that’s good to hear ^_^

    “Finally, Hayashi announced that Tecmo Koei already has plans for a DOA5U: Arcade tournament, organized in cooperation with SEGA.”

    I’d burst out of excitement if they also announce DoA vs VF at the same time ­čśÇ

    (Come on guys, it’s not like they couldn’t do it, we already have 4 characters in DoA, might as well add the rest)

  • Rafael Martines

    They could release a disc/digital with ALL dlcs including Marie Rose

    • AriesWarlock

      that’s what I am hoping for.

    • Death Metal

      It is implied that Marie Rose won’t be DLC, she will come as a patch, which means that she is not optional, but compulsory if you want to be in parity with the up-to-date version of the game. Plus, releasing a new disc version with only 1 character is asking to be ass-whipped by the fans.

  • Hayden Compton

    So they’re releasing Marie’s costume before she even becomes playable on console? Sounds kinda weird.

  • Brendon Love

    Judging by that Screenshot, Team Ninja are calling the full costume pack ‘Party Van’.

    Yes everyone, get your pedophile fix on in February. Yeah DOA is a solid fighter (5, not all the other horribly balanced and shallow as hell excuses for soft porn), and I know she’s “18” but there’s an obvious reason why she doesn’t look a day over 12, And the demographic she’s meant to attract. Team ninja’s hit an all time low. I have two young daughters and this is disgusting

    • Bio_liquid

      She looks older than even 14 in my eyes O.o

      But yeah that demographic she is pulling in with a positive charge. -shudders-

    • SavingPrincess

      Are you cool with your two young daughters playing Call of Duty or Halo?

      … asking for a friend.

      • juggernaut1981

        Hell no actually, I spent a lot of time shooting and handling guns in the military and know you need to respect them more than anything else. I’ll wait till my kids get to adolescence and have the ability to understand the consequences of pulling a trigger before they play a game that will desensitize them to the effects of it.

        • SavingPrincess

          Good on’ ya.

    • Death Metal

      “The beauty lies in the eye of the beholder.” Which also means that I don’t see it the way you see it, and I’m completely fine with this character. The only thing that annoys me a bit is her typical japanese schoolgirl voiceover, but hopefully we will get a decent north-american actress to dub her.

    Marie will be release no later than mid april because of USFIV coming out and that will kill off all interest in DOA5UA in the arcades so she will probably be released early spring or early april.

    Bring us 2vs2 online tag with a friend in the same console please.. this is what DOA surely need.
