New Dead Or Alive 5 Ultimate Character Marie Rose Will Come To Consoles

By Spencer . November 19, 2013 . 1:17am

Tecmo Koei unveiled a brand new fighter for Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, but Marie Rose was only confirmed for the arcade version. During a location test, 4gamer caught up with director Yohei Shimbori who asked if they thought about bringing Marie Rose to the console version.


Shimbori confirmed they plan to have an update which will allow everyone who has Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate (console version and Core Fighters) to use as Marie Rose.


While Marie Rose has a gothic lolita style as her default look, she has other costumes too.

    So I guess this means it’s okay to go ahead and buy “DOA5 Ultimate” and not wait for “DOA5 Ultimate: The Actual Complete Version”.

    • 紅蓮

      You can always download the core fighters for free and later buy the characters you want to play. I’m definitely getting this character btw xD

    • doubleO7

      It seems that way. If they’re not doing a new version for the brand new character, I don’t think they’ll be doing one at all.

      At least not on this gen. Maybe if they ported it to next gen. But I think they’d rather do something “fresh” on next gen, like DOA6 or DOAxVF.

    • FitzpatrickPhillips

      You may have to wait for “The Actual Complete Version: Gold Edition”

      • Guest

        That would be Capcom.

        • Kaitsu

          That would be a funny joke if Capcom actually forced you to buy a complete new copy without giving you the ability to upgrade. And even then, their upgrades are based on user feedback. The fans asked for it not them.

    • Sergio Briceño

      Just to be sure, you better wait for “RE: Ultra Ultimate DOA5 for the sequel AE”.

  • Cody

    Is there no level Team Ninja won’t stoop to to gouge money from people?

    • Nitraion

      yeah if you talk about costume…then yeah
      they give stage for free maybe hopefully this will be free

      • Loli Summoner

        If she is free then heck ya!

      • Linhua

        … doesn’t matter, i’m paying for dat ass.

    • Darkrise

      Oh yeah I’m sure no other company does that *rolls eyes*

      • Cody

        So because other companies do it, it’s okay? If I slap the shit out of your mother does that make it okay for everyone else to do it too?

        You apologists are fucking revolting.

        • Darkrise

          Uh huh where did all this aggressiveness come from? I never did say it was ok for companies to do that did I but you pretty much stated the obvious so your point is moot. What your doing is attacking Team Ninja for whatever reason when it’s no surprise that every other company has done the same thing.

          • Cody

            Yes I am, deal with it.

  • Demeanor

    God YES!!! ^ ^b

  • Tyesun Joyce


  • Dark Zerato

    Yes,yes,yes. TK really know the way to satisfy their fan.

  • Loli Summoner

    I wonder if her moveset is good.She looks like a counter hold character like bayman and leon and if she is like that….guess i’m not gonna be playing her much online if she is.

  • Nitraion

    Glad they don’t release it on other edition…
    I am glad buying ultimate version now

  • Kevin Kirschenpfad

    I think that they should’ve let all the characters from DOA 5 Ultimate be available as DLC for the regular DOA 5. Including Marie Rose.

    With them doing this, and Capcom doing the same thing with Street Fighter IV to Super Street Fighter IV, it’s like there is no point in buying fighting games when they come out until an Ultimate Version is announced.

    • doubleO7

      I thought SF4 was completely standalone from SSF4, much in the same way that DOA5 isn’t compatible for 5U? And then SSF4 got an update for Arcade Edition, instead of having to buy it again?

    • Ty Austin

      The whole point to buying them is if you’re competitive. By purchasing the first version, you’re playing against other people and getting better at the game. Once the update comes around, you’re ready for it (not to mention, most players are hungry for an update because they want to see something change.)

      If you’re not into competitive fighting games, then I completely understand that line of thinking. At the same time, there’s very little point in buying the upgrades if you aren’t into competing.

    • EinMugenTenshin

      To be fair, DoA5 was out for 1 year before they launched the expansion. Few games are supported with extra (free) content beyond that time period.

      • Nightmaresteam

        Actually It was not out for a year since Dead or Alive 5 was released September 25 2012 and Ultimate was released September 3 2013 so it was not a year between the revisions. Plenty of games get supported with additional content even after a one year time period like Super Street Fighter IV got a huge balance update more than a year after its release and now Ultra even though that game is 3 years old. Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus got the R update for the XBLA and PSN releases more than a year after the release of it. Team Fortress 2 is a perfect example of a game that keeps getting free content years after its release. Battlefield 2 kept getting free content years after release. In other word plenty of games get extra free content years after release.

  • Lolita

    Alright that’s great. I’ll be looking forward to it.

  • Linhua

    … sexiest news i’ve heard all day.

    … I mean, I knew this was going to happen… but it’s just nice to have that confirmation.

    … I dunno how long these location tests usually take… but I can only hope it ends soon.

    … my body just simply cannot be any more ready than it is right now.

    • Amanda See

      Dude, she looks like a child.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething


  • tarbis

    Update DOA5 Plus too. please T_T

    • leingod

      Yeah! I only play the portable version nowadays… and I’m really missing those extra characters.

    • ALfromHELLSING

      I asked them so many times on twitter after Ultimate release but they never replied. Guess they really don’t care bout Vita version anymore and this is really sad. Loving portable DOA5 as much as home console version.

      Wish someone could ask Hayashi if they are planning update or portable version of Ultimate. Man, they should have just waited for DOA5U and released DOA5 Plus.

  • eilegz

    hopefully its free dlc

  • fairysun

    One more reason to buy Ultimate!
    And neglecting Vanilla DoA5 :(

  • katzedan

    so the time to get the DoA5U arrived!

    Don’t mind if she isn’t a free dlc, I just NEED to play with her!

    • Slayven19

      She’ll be free trust me, they already said long ago that any DLC characters would be free.

      • TrueDefault

        Really? That’s so cool of them!

  • KyoyaHibari

    Good job guys, doing things right.

  • doubleO7

    An update? Like, for free? **High-fives Team Ninja**

  • Sakurazaki

    Now I can stop hearing about all this OMG NEW GAME stuff… It was driving me crazy.

    From the start, I was 110% sure that TN would follow the likes of Bamco and ArcSys and give it to us as DLC (free or not), but I really hate how Capcom has pretty much trained us this way.

  • Yan Zhao

    Im sure its gona be free for DO5U, and purchasable for Core Fighter. Yosuke Hayashi did mention in an interview that DLC characters would be unfair if not everyone can have them. Let see if he stays true to his words.

  • Raltrios

    Her systema fighting style is one I’m certainly intrigued by. There was a manga I once read where someone used systema, though I can’t recall which one it was. Either way, I’d like to see it in motion as opposed to the still images of back then.

  • artemisthemp

    You guys think she will free?

  • Teepo 64

    I’m actually relieved to find this out. I think I’m going to go buy my brother and myself a copy soon.

  • AkiraScare

    AAAAHHHHHHHH Goth Loli to beat people with a lot of different costumes (*_*) just wat i was needing cant wait to get the update (*_*)

  • Servant BerserCAR

    Now the most important question is… when? ლ(o Д o )ლ

  • Amine Hsu Nekuchan

    So they will be getting the DFC: Downloadable Flat Chest.

  • Croix Zapp

    Make a DOA full of lolis!

    • Cody

      Ped or Alive

  • Kotori Itsuka

    Can someone please explain this to me: Anywhere I go, no DOA5 ultimate, but on ps store there is this DOA5 ultimate core fighter thing. DAFUQ IS THE DIFFERENCE?

  • Teh Chikun

    Dayum, take my money already
