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.
