    I’ve always liked Momiji’s outfit in NG DS, but we’ll probably never see it again…
    I guess that’s it for now… I want to know more about this Ultimate version

    • Rick R

      Never see it again? It’s been in every game she’s been in as an unlockable. It’s in both Sigma 2 and Razor’s Edge. I’m sure you’ll get it in this.

  • malek86

    One extra character and stage wouldn’t be much, so I guess there will be more. But the focus seems to be on Ninja Gaiden, even the stage is from NG2. I wonder if we will also get Genshin? That’d be pretty cool, although the game already has way too many ninjutsu users.

    • Mildra

      Maybe the Regent/Theodore?

  • MrTyrant

    At least more characters, like Rachel and some few from Virtual Fighter.

  • Kenneth Richardson

    Ha, a character and a stage from Ninja Gaiden. That’s cool.


    Girl looks even better than in Ninja Gaiden 3. Lovin’ her new look, Ayane is still my favorite ninja girl.

    Momiji aside, Lei Fang has her pigtails back. Now can they give an option to unmask Hayabusa too. I better start spamming them on twitter for this to happen.

    • MrTyrant


    • Pokahontas McGuigan

      the fact that you cant unmask ryu shows one of the many little, but important, details that were left out or changed from previous doas. sadly there will never be a true DOA or NG game with out itagaki :(

  • Weird how they didn’t give her a new costume for this, i mean she’s been wearing that thing forever

    • Kenneth Richardson

      This is DOA so you know there will be alternate costumes. Her Razor’s Edge costume would be pretty sick in this!

  • Reiko_Chan

    With this announcement Im hoping they’ll announce a new Xtreme game soon.

    • ShimaPantsu

      That would be a welcome announcement.

    • DarthSithZero

      With Momiji included

      • sunK1D

        You will have to wait for ultimate edition of that one for Momiji.

        • DarthSithZero

          lol true

  • Hinataharem

    Hope she isn’t a Kasumi clone.

    • Linhua

      … oho~ They better NOT do that!!

      ._. No seriously i’m sure they won’t. They know that a massive number of fans were looking forward to her appearance… and i’m sure they’ve spiced her up just enough for us to be satisfied.

    • sunK1D

      Momiji is a heavier character, she won’t play like Kasumi or Ayane. She will probably play more similar to Hayate.

    • David García Abril

      Me too. The screenshot in which she kicks Lei Fang looks suspiciously similar to one of Kasumi’s kicks…

      Don’t fall for that, Team Ninja. Momiji deserves being a totally new character!

    • David García Abril

      OK, I already saw Momiji’s first trailer.

      Thankfully, she’s not a clone, neither of Kasumi or of anyone else. ^^

      Although her move set is quite reminiscent of Hayabusa, although considering she’s his apprentice, it makes sense.

  • Guest

    Yoohoo cant wait to see her in a bikini

  • doubleO7

    While I’m glad to see Momiji, I hope they add more than just one new character and stage.
    Team Ninja mentioned awhile back that their dream guest character would be Ryo Hazuki from Shenmue. This would be the perfect opportunity to add him…

    • gamefreak86

      I’d cry a little if that happened.

  • DarthSithZero

    Aside from Momiji being finally added to Dead or Alive which Im very happy, Is this the new strategy that the companies will use to make more money? Instead of expensive DLC now the re-release the game with 2 new things per 39.99 / 49.99.

    This only confuses the consumers because they dont know if the actual game is the complete or should wait for a later enhanced version. You have to buy 2-3 times the same game to get the final version.

    Tecmo better add more stuff to make the game worth to buy it for the second time

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      This is not a new thing though especially on fighting game field where new series will keep coming out each year.

  • XypherCode

    Wonder what her alternate costumes would look like. XD

  • Nitraion

    If their “Ultimate” meaning we will have costomize chara and quest mode like sega did on their virtua fighter and fix online mode system… then i sold …
    Also i wanna to ask what “Ultimate” add in the past game? because i never play Dead or alive ultimate

  • Pokahontas McGuigan

    shes way better than mila and the lame VF ladies w no personalities :)

  • Pokahontas McGuigan

    christie better get a story mode this time

  • batanen

    This better be a free update!

    “Just to be clear, we’re not going to have paid downloadable content characters. We don’t want to do that.” (source:

    • Nitraion

      You know after I think about they said, they kinda twisted their words don’t they?
      think about it….”Just to be clear, we’re not going to have paid downloadable content characters. We don’t want to do that.”

      “Yes we don not want to make a chara to be DLC but we making an Ultimate version and as we said didn’t make DLC chara so we make a “New” game instead”…
      See? :
      I hope i am wrong because i want DLC for this…

      • batanen

        Yeah I noticed there was that loophole.

        I wonder whether the new and old edition are compatible online with the new character. I think Mortal Kombat had some problems with the Komplete Edition (though that’s online never worked for me). Probably some kind of patch is required between the two editions so I don’t see that the dlc for new character would be completely out of place; though I prefer it would be included at least for those who owned online pass (those gamers at least have invested their money to the game).

  • artemisthemp

    I hope they release a Upgrade DLC and not only Retail copy (Like Capcom)

  • I thought that Momiji was going to be a clone, but this trailer says no! And that’s awesome! Also, looks like they are putting Leon in this one.


    I didn’t buy DOA 5, but I’ll surely get this game. :P
