Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate’s Marie Rose Will Likely See A Western Release

By Ishaan . November 25, 2013 . 10:30am

Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate has a new playable character in Japan by the name of Marie Rose. A gothic lolita that uses a Russian military style of combat (don’t ask), Marie will first be released in arcades, and will then make the transition over to consoles.


All of these plans are for Japan, but Tecmo Koei say that western fans can look forward to news on Marie Rose at some point in the future as well. On the Dead or Alive Facebook page, the publisher stated:


Fighters! We see that you’ve discovered our newest character, Marie Rose for the upcoming Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate Arcade. Although this game is a JP exclusive title, we haven’t forgotten about our overseas fighters in the West. We hope to provide you guys with more information in the near future. But in the meantime, we appreciate your continued support for DOA5 Ultimate. Thanks fighters!


Marie Rose will be available in the updated arcade version of Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate in Japan this fall. Tecmo Koei have not said when the character will be made available for consoles.

      • Göran Isacson

        Oh Arakawa Under The Bridge.

        You some kinda crazy, but that’s why I like ya.

      • Lolita

      • Demeanor

        Bwahahahahahah the tears!!!! XD I can’t stop them! XD
        Looks like I got a ‘new anime challenger’ requiring immediate attention XD

    • Audie Bakerson

      Better yet: Why is the loli from a country that bans loli?

      • EinMugenTenshin

        I think TN is trolling them. It is great for publicity, that’s for sure.

  • I might get her. But why is DoA DLC so expensive?! Makes me sad.

    • Wesley Kenneth Houpt Mattingly

      Because people buy it :(

    • Ixbran

      Team Ninja have already stated in the past they dont believe in charging people for character or stage DLC, and that Marie will come automatically in a system update.

      she will be completely free to those who own DoA5U, or the digital version DoA5U Core Fighters.

  • I may have to start playing this again lol

  • Shady Shariest

    Hmh…I think i will need to get my first DoA soon :3

  • Luis Camargo

    And I thought they couldn’t interest me in DoA5 Ultimate without lowering the price…….

    Hell, I want to play with her.

    • Guest

      Lol I know this is twisting your words but you want to play with a gothic loli. Not that I wouldn’t in the game.

  • Arcana Wiz

    Now i'm interested in DOA

    • TheExile285


    • Demeanor

      Can’t blame you. XD

      • Arcana Wiz

        XDDDD, what i can say… she is interesting… i’ll use her for “research” purposes XD

    • Servant BerserCAR

      Welcome to the club. It’s never too late, you know.
      (☝゚∀゚)☝ ☜(゚▽゚☜)(☞´∀`)☞

      • Arcana Wiz


  • TheExile285

    With all the stuff the added to DOA5 via Ultimate, kind of makes you wonder why they didn’t just make DOA6……

    • Shady Shariest

      *Looks at Street Fighter*
      Yeah, i wonder why some games end up like this…

      • Kaitsu

        Because it does better than buying a whole new game with barely any updates. Of course, this excludes the big AAA games. And the fighter formula works completely much better this way. I don’t know why people complain about it. You pay less for more.

        • Shady Shariest

          Or more for less… It’s easy to twist it that way without people noticing.

    • TheHolypopeofgaming

      becuase that would require a new engine if you play DOA5U’s story mode they didn’t add extra story for the new characters.

    • Nitraion

      Simple NO… :O
      Really… you gonna piss off some people…. :<

  • leingod

    Please don’t forget DOA5+ :(

  • KyoyaHibari

    Figured that was a given, but I guess they need to give her a dub voice and translate her moveset, so no biggie.

  • I’m actually thinking on getting this game just to be able to play as her! asdfghj

    • katzedan

      You’re not alone xD

  • PurpleHaze

    …Did this come out on PC?
    I’ve gotten behind on news.

  • AkiraScare

    AHHHH finally a DFC for the west (^_^) unite Flat chest lovers lets support this (^_^) im so playing as her when it comes out

  • Namuro

    Well, how about that. It looks like this single character just won the audience over, and got them interested in the series all over again… Including me… (〃 ̄ω ̄〃ゞ

  • Nitraion

    Okay seriously everyone in here is Loli-pervert….
    including me….
    yeah i said “everyone”

    • M’iau M’iaut

      You better have better proof than your own thoughts on the matter. Save of course those like Arcana Wiz below who actually admit to it.

      • Arcana Wiz


  • Callonia

    YES!!!!!!!!!! Now i’m looking forward to pulling my xbox out of dustbin XD


    I spent big money to get the DOA5 with the box…only to find out I had to actually buy a new game to play with additional characteres??Seriously, people should boycott the game…
