Dead or Alive 5 Swimsuit Costume For Mila Revealed

By Ishaan . September 12, 2012 . 10:25am

Yes, Dead or Alive 5’s new character, Mila, too, has a swimsuit costume that will be included in the game’s collector’s edition. Tecmo Koei showed it off today:


In case you missed the previous report on her, Mila is a mixed martial arts champion with an admiration for Bass Armstrong. She enters the Dead or Alive tournament in the hopes of facing off against him, and makes friends with Bass’ daughter, Tina Armstrong, along the way.


Dead or Alive 5 will be released on September 25th in North America and September 28th in Europe. If you’re looking to pick up the collector’s edition, you can find images of the rest of the cast’s swimsuit outfits here and here.

  • Shadowman

    Nice. B)

  •  Can’t wait to play her.

    • Godmars

       That could be taken either way…

      • Zeromus321


  • Mila: “Hi! I’m Mila and I’m an MMA fighter. So I can’t to fight in the next Dead or Alive Tournament! X3”

    All the other women look at Mila and feel sorry for her because she’ll become a hentai-star in fanmade-doujin post-release of DOA5.

    At least Rig will get laid.

      I don’t know about Mila, she just doesn’t seem to have the same sex appeal that the others have. Maybe it’s because she seems more normal. First of all Helena is the rich heiress and a opera star.
      Hitomi (meh), but those endings in DOA 4 that gave played on the women’s attraction improved Hitomi.
      Lei Fang has that younger woman trying to try hard to have more appeal is kind of endearing.
      Kasumi, is the attractive busty ninja with risque clothing
      Ayane is the somewhat attractive kunoichi who has an enormous brother complex which i suppose would appeal to some males
      Lisa (la mariposa) has that attractive school nurse or doctor look
      Finishing quickly you have the attractive movie star/rock star or whatever the hell she decides to do next in DOA 5. Finally you have the lithe, sexy assassin

      • That won’t stop ones from making some new hentai based on DOA5.

        • andref

          @repede91 too
          ….true, but i wouldn’t be as interested in Mila though

      • Repede91

         Rule 34`s power is limitless.

        • Testsubject909

          You cannot begin to fathom the things I’ve seen… And I don’t think anyone should see those by the way.

      • sunK1D

        Looks are subjective. Personally i think Mila along with Kasumi, Kokoro and LeiFang are the hottest doa girls. Despite Mila’s subdued looks she’s still worthy of being a doa girl.

        • andref

           Maybe I confused I wouldn’t go so far as call her subdued but Mila along with Hitomi are (trying not to say homely)…… Maybe a good comparison is in high school you had the class beauty who in some ways could be stuck up but in other words a “knockout” in most peoples eyes (depending on ones tastes). Then there is the smart girl who doesn’t stand out in any other way except for high grades and dresses in anything that’s comfortable. kasumi and most of the other girls would be the class beauty whereas Mila and quite possibly Hitomi would be that smart girl

        • Testsubject909

          Hitomi’s my top one, personally. Following soon thereafter are Leifang, Helena, Ayane, Kasumi and Christie. The rest are in third spot.

      • Testsubject909

        Hitomi’s the girl next door, there’s also a lot of implied lesbianism between her and Lei-Fang, you can see this quite clearly in the DOAX2 opening where the two of them are sharing an ice cream cone, in no way symbolic of anything other than eating an ice cream cone and taking turns giving a lick at it.

        I ain’t posting you the youtube link to the opening, go look it up yourself ya perverts.

        Anyways, the unfortunate reality here is that appearances wise… She’s really nothing different from Rio, who made a guest star appearance in DOA Paradise for the PSP. As such, any hentai material that’ll sprout from her will pretty much be either minimal or just be confused for more Rio material.

    • xavier axol

      hey!, it’s all for a good cause. otherwise how will i get my daily hentai? i mean, it’s too hard try find porn/hentai (the internet it’s only about 95% porn). but what about the other five percent? we need this!! *with tears in my eyes* we need this.
      honestly, doa 5 it’s gonna be great. but to me, it’s like they’re trying to pleased everyone. frist saying that they will toned down the sexual stuff because some people will be offended?, come on!! you’re only alienated your core based. and besides these people will not get it in the end, it’s pointless to make the characters look mature and sexy at the same time. they need to go back to their roots.

      • Setsu Oh

         i still so sad i dont find more takemura sesshou

  • z_merquise

    Mila is looking good in that bikini! I instantly liked her when I first saw her in the previous trailers. Rig looked so cool too.

    But I just wanted to confirm, only the female characters had swimsuits? Nothing for the male characters? It’s not that I wanted to see Bass in a mankini but didn’t anyone from Team Ninja thought of it? C’mon, Tekken beaten them already for it.

    • That’s correct. Only the female characters have swimsuit outfits.

      (At least, that’s what they’ve announced for the collector’s edition.)

      • Closet_Ninja

         so we’re not gonna see Ryu in a speedo? cause that would be funny.

        • AnimusVox

          And slightly disturbing, but mostly funny.

          Also, what is your pic avy from?

          • Setsu Oh

             i think ryu has a g string. or a traditional jp underwear.

          • Closet_Ninja

             its ryomou shimei

          • AnimusVox

            Thank you

      • Setsu Oh

        the thing i hope for females to stop call that game s gamers pervs and what not would be to have a beach volley three or whateve the name of it is, and make it propose a boy version and gal versionµ. there are PLENTY of games for women out there with boyu on boyu action and etc.
        tecmo has ignored them all for way too long.
        they MUST make a gal edition with sweaty beayman squeezing too tight ryu who doesnt want to acknowledge he is liking it a bit too much so his is redding up, big  volley tournament with an all guy cast via the network for the game with special serve slowmos, bulge shots, chest bumpings….there IS crazy material there TECMO!!!!

        special magic mike pole dancing kata!!

  • omeganeko

    So is this only for Mila or can you alternate swimsuits between characters?

    • Character-specific costumes. No mention of being able to swap so far.

      • Setsu Oh

         LAAAAAAAAAAND LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND i see a beach volley three! starboard!

        • Testsubject909

          Just like how I hope we get a localization of the EDF games, I really hope we get a DOAX3.

          It’s one of those games, no devotion level, no weight, full pick up and play, good relaxing fun with it’s own depth if you seek it out and good couch multiplayer fun.

          • Setsu Oh

             i hope they mix their stupidities i like like volleyball beach with the soulcalibur wii beatem all/tekken force game… there is something for the futre of gaming evoolution there i can feel it. no one got it right yet but one day it will be fun i m sure, onimusha went that route too but it wasnt in full threeD world

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Well that was sooner than I expected…

    Either way, not too shabby, but not extravagant like some of the others… 

  • konsama

    Really liked this character since it was revealed, it isn’t just prettier and hotter than the others, but their moveset looks like she actually knows how to fight and isn’t just dancing… and posing.

    • Testsubject909

      Well… There’s a clear difference between Martial Arts and Fighting.

      That said, if this was actual fighting, there’d be a lot more grappling to begin with. Yes punching and all, but it would be far more visceral. For one thing, if I was in a fighting competition that really was just a free for all beat the crap out of the opponent no honor just straight up win…

      I’d probably aim to poke eyes out, punch and chop at the neck to block out air and cut blood flow suddenly, palm the chest to cause heart beat hiccups, kick the nuts to incapacitate immediately and basically use anything around me as a weapon to beat the crap out of the enemy.

      But the way the game plays, it seems more like a sort of martial art competition so… The whole posing and dancing stuff? Yeah, that’s completely normal, it’s how martial art spars and fights usually go, just look up any tourney of long established martial art styles.

      The main reason though as to why it all looks like a dance is because the impact isn’t registered. The punches, the slaps, the kicks, they all just flow through. There’s no interruption of their movement and no visible impact other then all the sparks flying and whatnot. As such, it really is just a model going through the motions. She won’t be any different in that regard. She’ll be doing punches and kicks but really, her animation won’t interrupt itself to act as though it actually hit something solid. Quite honestly I think it’ll take many many dozens of years until someone thinks and applies such small minute details.

      But eh, whatever. It’s pretty much unimportant visual fluff for fighting games.

      • konsama

        I know about martial arts, i’m a tae kwon do practicer myself… and yes they do much unnecessary “dancing”.

        • Testsubject909

          Huh… A fellow practitioner. You know, back in the days, it seemed as though the fad was to learn Karate, barely anyone seemed to train in something else (then jujitsu started to get a rise in popularity towards the end of my high school years).

          I rarely met anyone who knew Tae Kwon Do, and I was always feeling prideful about any video game character who made use of it…

          And yeah, I remember winning second place in the Kata section of a tourney. And in that segment, it really is memorizing a dance isn’t it?

  • Göran Isacson

    … So am I the only one who thinks she looks cuter in her shirt and jeans combo? Because this swimsuit don’t do much for me.

    THEN AGAIN, swim suits don’t really do much for me overall because they’re not really fun to look at in the first place (make your jokes on how I’m a cold dead fish of a man here…), at least not in comparison with the more elaborate outfits these characters usually wear.

    ALSO also, seriously? No fanservice bathing suits for the guys? Not even a fundoshi? Come on guys, Tekken are totally stealing your thunder here! Ah, I guess they know their audience and its desires better than I do…

    • Pope The Rev XXVIII

       Yeah wardrobe malfunctions or GTFO

    • Testsubject909

      Eh, more or less.

      I find that the more monotone swimsuits they’re dishing out this time around is pretty tame and boring.

      I mean, look at Hitomi, she had a cute bear swimsuit outfit but also had those suspenders and jean short combination (no shirt or top, just the suspenders suspiciously barely covering her up and never slipping off).

      For fanservice, this is pretty much just run of the mill nothing special fanservice… I’m also still having those words ringing in my ear about how this new Team Ninja wanted to go away from this fanservice pandering.

      I’ll check some of the latest videos… If Hitomi’s face looks better, I might look into buying it, but otherwise, probably not. She’s my favorite and the early videos made her look really… off.

      • Setsu Oh

         i just love sarah s swimwear.
        now milla s too.

        i hope SOMEONE is yougn enough to wear a HS gym bloomers for it to fit, like eileen. or hitomi?she is a bit tall though it has to be cute, not pretty.
        cute like minorin not pretty like the tall beauty with blue hair in toradora.

        and of course. i really damn hope they put the nudeunderjeansoveralls costume katsumi had in the first game back in doa.

        of course i hope they go wild with the customisations . fifteen costumes is not enough anymore.

      • Göran Isacson

        Yeah, that’s pretty much it. Tekken has melon-bikini, fundoshi and who knows what else. This, well… it’s cute and functional and probably an IC-choice, but it’s not like it’s very special in and of itself. Then again, as I’ve said before, I’m not much of a fun of swim-suits to begin with. Fan-service like what we’ve seen in the latest Tekken Tag Tournament 2 trailer for the WiiU, with some really outlandish cosplay, THAT’S what gets my motor running.

  • Heavenly_King

    she looks pretty :3

  • Darkrise

    The collectors edition will be mine!

  • Budgiecat

    Mila would still lose to Ronda Roussey by way of armbar

  • I must say that Mila looks amazing in her swimsuit bikini. I’m very happy I reserved the collectors edition so I can enjoy Mila as well as all the other fem fatal in all their glory =^_^= 

    • Testsubject909

      Good for you. Though on my end I still have no real motivation to get this game… Hrm…

      • The explosions! =P

        • Testsubject909

          I’ve honestly not kept up with DOA5 news for a while, so I took a good 10 minutes to look up some of the latest videos over on the KoeiTecmo channel on youtube and… Well, it reminded me a lot of the good times I had with DO3 and DOA4.

          So I’m caving in and buying the game. Pre-ordered it a few hours ago, the collector’s edition is still available for anyone who cares.

  • CirnoLakes

    Well doesn’t that just figure. I mean, this came out of left field, it’s not as is if they were doing sexy-time pandery type stuff for years. No, not in the slightest. I’m just shocked.

    At least if they’re going to keep doing this forever, they could introduce women with more than one body type.:V

    • Testsubject909

      It is true that fans of flat chested types aren’t going to find a single one in here.

      • CirnoLakes

        H-How do you know this about me..?

        • Testsubject909

          Your profile/avatar/display picture here in Disqus for one part and I think I recall a few conversations back when.

  • Reiko_Chan

    This makes me want DOAX3.

    • Testsubject909

      You too?

    • Setsu Oh

       you never know, i think there might be a tekken force like mode in this game. but with beaches and swimsuits

  • XypherCode

    Really…I can’t get enough of those Flamingos XD

  • David García Abril

     Man, if only all Spaniard chicks looked like that in a swimsuit! lol

    • Testsubject909

      A Spaniard huh?

      Well you just be careful, because let me tell you, them Spaniards… They come with fear, ruthless efficiency and an almost fanatical devotion to the pope and nice red uniforms!

      • David García Abril

        I AM Spaniard. You don’t need to tell me. lol

        Although in real life, we don’t have any real devotion for the pope nor nice red uniforms (except for the national soccer team shirt, of course).

        • Setsu Oh

           i dont think its just the spanish women. i think it extends to the mediterranean belt.
          sun plus sea plus this area of the globe means fiery emotions and all.
          italians spanish greek persian israelian algerian etc all those women are pretty much able to scare a bear if you poke them.

      • Tom_Phoenix

        Nobody expects the Portuguese Inquisition!

        …Wait, let me try that again.

  • shion16

    So cute *-* !!
    She is so cute that i dont even care her backstory is at the level of Double Dragon 1

    • Setsu Oh

       well this is a japanese fightng game, who se story isnt ?
      i hope they retell the whole raidô story they told in three and then some.

  • Testsubject909

    You know, looking at all these swimsuits… I’m way more interested in hearing news about a DOAX3…

  • Testsubject909

    Is it just me or does she look more appealing in this picture then she does in her bikini?

    Edit: Ah crap… didn’t mean to do a double post. Sorry.

    • Setsu Oh

       i like her in her bikini better.
      its not too sexy and has some style….i kinda hate the costume she has there. with her normal stance it feels weird. she isnt bent like most mma fighters she is laid back like a certain fighter i forgot the name of who trained in karate and sumo

  • Setsu Oh

    i can t believe how well the virtua chars are made. sarah is hot now . so much more than before.
    proof that you dont need a very sexy swimming suit to be freakin hot.
    i cant wait . i think i ll buy that game just for the virtua chars.
    i would lie to see their version of jeffry, out ofall chars, leifei is the most annoying to me so i wouldnt mind them not to put him in. its harsh on the lei players but …..
    anyway. simeshun would be nice and of course vanessa. and eileen.

  • artemisthemp

    Really looking forward to getting DoA5 CE in the mail
