    Temco this is starting to get out of hand. Way too much DLC for a re-release >_>

    • doubleO7

      This article wasn’t even about DLC…

      • TheExile285

        Oh you’re right. Thought it said the new character was DLC.

        • Cazar

          You can bet it will be.

        • EinMugenTenshin

          That may be, but this will almost guaranteed be a free DLC though, just like the stages and other core content has been. I believe TN said something about that being the case.

    • Ty Austin

      Yet BB does it and everyone gets hype…

      • TheExile285

        No they don’t. Most of BBs re-releases are handheld exclusive and dont have their own unique DLC

        • Ty Austin

          I’m talking about the expansions, they’re released too frequently and have DLC characters you have to download after you buy.

          • Alexander Marquis Starkey

            What expansion that you had to pay for has had DLC characters hmm? And don’t say Continuum Shift. That was a sequel.

      • eilegz

        not really i didnt care about blazblue after the first one… sf on other hand its getting out of control….

        • Ty Austin

          SF does have a lot of add ons. But they’re spread out a lot more and are far more reasonably priced for what you get.

  • Freya2012

    O-Oh wow! Didn’t expect this! But I hoped the extra contents will available for Ultimate on xbox and ps3…

    • Stranger On The Road

      It will be… in the ‘Super Ultra’ edition :-)

      P.S. although if the release is for the next gen with ‘Xtreme 3‘ or ‘Paradise 2‘ as an extra, then I’ll buy it without complaining :-)

  • Kyle

    This isn’t Tengu, so I am pissed off… regardless let’s get ready to study some tech.

  • doubleO7

    I gotta say, I’m incredibly surprised! Was fully expecting (and hoping for) Tengu. I’m a little disappointed that it wasn’t him, but its still awesome that they put in the extra effort to make a new character. I definitely wasn’t expecting someone brand-spankin-new for the arcade port. Figured they’d save something like that for DOA6.

    • EinMugenTenshin

      I think it is awesome that they go original. They never said anything about fighting mechanics though, so you never know. (Though again, I personally hope for original content in that department as well :p)

    • I was actually hoping it’d be Rio Rollins Tachibana XD Since she’s already a prominent figure in Tecmo Koei’s arcade market (well.. pachinko counts, right?) and she was in DOA Paradise for the PSP, and she even fought baddies in her own anime series (well, a little bit, but it was quality stuff, imo!).

      Either her or one of the old Bosses or a guest from something other than VF…

      But now I just really wanna know more about Marirose, lol.

  • KyoyaHibari

    Tecmo, I love your game but not your marketing of it. Please put this (these?) new character(s) in at the very least as cheaper DLC, or even just an update like the Zack Island stage would be best.

  • leingod

    I still want the Ultimate characters as DLC for 5+ on the Vita :(

    • doubleO7

      That won’t happen, since 5+ is a fairly straight port of vanilla DOA5. None of the new content is compatible with the older versions of the game. The most likely scenario is that they’ll give DOA5U its own Vita version eventually.

      • Shippoyasha

        Or hopefully at least a PS4 version + the hope that the Vita Remote play works flawlessly.

      • leingod

        I’d get that, if the price’s fair.

  • Servant BerserCAR

    Again? Sigh… *writes a goodbye letter to the wallet, again*

    • Slayven19

      Who said you would have to pay? Remember they said characters would be free if they have to be DLC.

      • Servant BerserCAR

        I hope you’re right. Unless they release the character with “extra costume pack” like usual. -_- I just pray that they release the character separately. :)

  • Nitraion

    I hope they update it…
    just update it no charge ><
    if they put DLC please free

    • EinMugenTenshin

      I think it will be, like all the other core content. Agh, I need to find the quote from TN that said no content that may impact your performance in ranked would be chargeable (Guess they ain’t counting Jann’s laughing your opponent to death in his Dragon costume).

      • Nitraion

        I regret praising them on term”There will be no Chara DLC price tag” -_-
        That means if they want to stay to that commitment either give free chara DLC or re-release game again

  • EinMugenTenshin

    guys, it will most likely be free of charge.

    Just wanted to throw that out there as some seem to assume it will cost Scrooge McDuck’s private savings.

    • Sakurazaki

      Yeah, I still have in my mind that TN said that any of their characters and stages are going to be free.

  • I’m just a little concerned that her name sounds too much like “Mariposa” (6 out of 8 letters agree!). I was actually hoping they wouldn’t put in a whole new character until DOA6 but now the curiosity to learn more about her is too exciting XD

    • Sakurazaki

      I thought the same thing, lol. If this is a reskin, I’m going to rage.

  • Ty Austin
    • Sakurazaki

      OMG… I think I’ve found a new main.

    • doubleO7

      lol, hell must have frozen over. I never thought I’d see the day DOA would include a female without huge tits. I’m curious to know what her fighting style will be like.

      And that stage in the background appears to be a non Halloween-ized Lorelei, which is cool.

      But is it just me, or does she looks suspiciously like a fusion of Lili from Tekken, Rachel Alucard from BlazBlue, and a certain blonde loli from To-Love-Ru?

      • Ty Austin

        The main issue I have is her age. With how female characters are dressed in this game, we’re reaching pedo status here…

        • Impressionnant

          Nothing wrong with hebephilia.

          • ShadowDivz

            hebephilia? I dare not google it so just tell me.

        • ShadowDivz

          Frankly i always thought Ayane was 21. I was shocked to learn she is 16. Or was 16 at one point.

          • Lynx

            She was 16 up until DOA4.

            She only turned 18 in DOA5 because of the two years that passed from the former’s events.

          • ShadowDivz

            My point is, she doesn’t look her age.

      • Wow, she… looks so damn out of place, imo. And no, that’s not a reference to her chest size (well, not totally, lol). Yeah, she does seem more like she’d be right at home in those other series. Really… a loli among my womanly fighting game series? (ugh… XD) She seems even younger than Eliot… (and what was all that speculation crap about the reason for them increasing the age of the characters being because of the problems some countries had with certain characters’ ages being “too young”, again? lol).

        Well, even if I see this as near blasphemy (lol), I admit it does add to the variety and will get some more people interested to pick up the DOA series (I’m betting she’ll be quite popular… possibly to an obnoxious extent XD). This will take some adjusting to… >_> anyways, I have enough characters that I feel like maining in DOA5U as it is…

        • ShadowDivz

          Yeah, a loli character in DOA seems really out of place.

          Chest wise and the fact that everyone seems adult.
          Doubt she will be playable in western territories.

    • Göran Isacson

      Mother… of… God…

      DOA didn’t just include a little girl character, they went the full hog and made her gothic lolita too. I…. I gotta admit, it feels a bit strange to see someone so stylized in a cast of fighters that do a pretty good job of looking “down to earth”, or at least fighting in outfits that are semi-sort of practical to fight in. Shorts, pants, martial arts gis, street wear, no big elaborate suits unless it’s part of some DLC. And now this… welp. Guess we’re gonna see how the fanbase takes to her.

    • David García Abril

      This is SOOOOO gonna get a backlash in Western territories…

      • ShadowDivz

        Only if you can see her panties, instead of it being blacked out.

        But this is DOA…

    • ShadowDivz

      TN is gonna need some flame retardant armor.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      Gothic lolitha <3

    • Nitraion

      Oh goD
      she can fight?!
      O_o so Out of place XD

    • Loli Summoner

      No huge boobs? what kind of black magic is this?

  • Demeanor

    New main right there!!!!!!!! XD
    I’ve read in some forum that she uses a russian fighting style called “Systema”, looked up some videos about it and it seems a very practical, military style aimed at subjugating opposition swiftly and mercilessly. Can’t freaking wait to see some videos!
    Atm my preferred styles in DoA are Pai’s Mizong Quan and Lei Fang’s Tai Chi Quan.

  • Ronldbx6

    Is she legal?
