    18 huh?

    Yeah ok >_>

    • artemisthemp

      18 is legal

      • OutlawStar26ep

        Yes, but she doesn’t look legal thats the point. Because Kasumi and Ayane were 17 & 16 before DOA5 came out, so they were underaged even though they look older than that.

        • ShadowDivz

          I always thought they were in their 20s…

    • OutlawStar26ep

      18 year old Swedish girl who looks like shes 13.
      Seems like Team Ninja’s revenge for Sweden banning Dead or Alive Dimensions in their country for showcasing “underaged characters in revealing outfits”

      • Tenetan

        Game actually never was banned, it was the publisher who got cold feats because someone for fun reported it. Absolutly nothing got out of it and mayority of the bigger retailers still stocked the game, and still do today.

    • ShadowDivz

      Damn right it’s okay!

      …..DON’T JUDGE ME!
      *runs away with Marie Rose dakimakura)*

    • Duo Maxwell

      You didn’t know? Every virtual girl is 18.

    • Stephen Mc Devitt

      Legal or not, expect Marie in some new DOA hentai.

  • .:Raphællius:.

    Her moves look like a combination of Kasumi, Ayane, and Bayman.

  • KingGunblader

    $5.99? Yeesh. Curse my compulsive need to have the complete roster in a fighting game.

  • ShimaPantsu

    It’s funny that they have to go out of their way to say her age. “SHE’S 18 YOU GUYS, EVERYBODY RELAX.”

    • ShadowDivz

      I know right. it’s like

      T.K : Presenting…. Marie Rose!
      Loli haters :*GASP*
      T.K: She’s 18!!! Everybody calm down! She. Is. 18. We are officially stating her age now….which is 18. Everybody relax……she’s legal.”

      • Duo Maxwell

        I can’t relax if she’s legal. My body can’t.

  • artemisthemp

    So €26.99 for Marie Rose and all of her Costumes

  • Kayseur

    What, we actually need to pay for her? At least I would’ve expected them to include the costumes. I guess I was being too optimistic.

    I will still buy her, but maybe not day one. I need to give TK my money for Deception before.

  • ShadowDivz

    Special News bulletin.

    On march 25th, Lolicons in north america and europe will be getting boners.
    More at 11.

    • Lalum

      Too old.

  • fairysun

    Wait, people complain about her age?
    And nobody complains how a teenager girl can knock a 300ish lbs man?

    Gee people, get your priority straight. XD

    • Xerain

      That’s systema for you.

  • Brimfyre

    “But officer, she told me she was 18!!”

  • MaximDualBlade

    I was under the impression that she was going to be a free dlc character in an update patch. What happened? I misread I suppose, too bad

    • Death Metal

      No, that’s what Hayashi said, that they would not charge for additional characters. I am hoping she’s paid only in Core Fighters.

  • DOA insists on pretending all their characters are 18. Meanwhile Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm is like “LOL Here’s a 15 year old in a bikini!”

    • monkey king

      not really, Ayane was 16 in doa2-4

    • Death Metal

      Eh? What’s wrong with a 15 year old in a bikini?

      • That was my point. DOA is a game series filled with fanservice and they want to pretend like someone under 18 being attractive is a problem. But Naruto is a series not even really renowned for fanservice and they don’t have an issues with giving you an alternate costume for pure fanservice on a character who is under 18.

        • Death Metal

          I see your point now, and that’s true. I think that’s so silly, just like ShadowDivz said in reply to ShimaPantsu in this comments section. What’s the problem with her being actually 13 or 14 or whatever? It’s like they are on the defensive at all times. If you’re going to release a loli character for the sake of it, at least stand for what you believe in and just dust the naysayers off.

  • Will she show up in the Vita version of the game, by any chance? I haven’t noticed that being mentioned anywhere.

  • venomryu

    did I just saw a tatsumaki in her combo trails

  • Yan Zhao

    I thought Marie Rose was supposed to be a free update. And I thought Hayashi clearly stated they wont ever do paid DLC for characters and will be free if they did.

    So much for that. Unless this article was an error.

    • Zak Ledward

      I think when they talk about the price for Marie Rose, that’s on DOA5: Core Fighters, the free-to-play game. As far as I know, she’s free for people that bought the full game; DOA5:Ultimate.

      • David García Abril

        That point is not clear yet.

        They better clarify it soon…

      • Yan Zhao

        I thought about that at first but the pricing doesnt really add up, since 6$ for 1 character is significantly higher than the other characters in core fighter.

        • The Old Shopkeeper

          remember. that 6 dollars includes all her dlc costumes, so maybe she is free (by herself), but her with costumes aren’t

  • NinaBright

    Ugh, and she’s played by Cristina Vee. Figures.

  • Red Antares

    Ugh… why do they had to use Cristina V. for her english voice? I’m kinda tired of hearing the same voice everywhere.

  • Cool. Been waiting for them to announce her. I love her style. That throat punching was brutal lol

    ‘Bigger isn’t always better you know”

    I lol’d. =)

    • Loli Summoner

      ‘Bigger isn’t always better you know” Blasphemy!!!

  • neocatzon

    Her attacks sounds heavy. What’s with her strength?

  • phayroent

    It’s the new fad to age up all female characters in the West. They can only wear skimpy clothing if they are 18. That’s the law here in “Murica!

    Also: Marie Rose – “Yay, I beat you!”
    That’s just freaking adorable.

    • AbsolutGrndZer0

      Yeah, that’s a touchy subject but it’s one that comes up all the time whenever a discussion of “Morality” is on the internet. Because, lets face it… the Morality of a American is very different than the morality of a Japanese person, because different religious beliefs plus different laws influence our thoughts. Even within the USA, the age of consent varies from 14-18 (Clinton’s 18 when overseas law changes that but only when leaving the USA). In the 1600’s girls got married at 12-13. But, as modern medicine has allowed us to live longer, there is less of a rush, more time to be children and for Western society our morality and laws (for the most part) have followed suit. However, that all remains subject to local law. Even way back in the original DOA, Ayane was 16 in the Japanese version, 17 in the American version because they didn’t want the flak from Americans about omg she’s underage when she’s not in Japan. I imagine Marie Rose is only listed as 18 so they can not have to worry about it from past experience. Just make her 18, shes loligoth she’s petite and trying to look younger than she is.

  • Nitraion

    Lol the truth always hurt…. -1 on Team ninja honesty… +1 lie
    because i still remember hayashi said never pulled chara as paid DLC unless he never say it… but i still remember….

    • Radprofile

      Well, according to fb page:

      “One more information today. Along with Marie Rose Debut to the consoles on March 25th/26th (for PlayStation Fighters, US/EU) and on March 26th(for Xbox 360 Fighters, worldwide), Long waited Lorelei Stage will be released for Free. We hope you all like it! ※accessible after downloading Patch 1.05, available without charge. The patch detail will be informed on our official site later.”

      • Nitraion

        It’s been confirmed its not free

  • Esteban Granados

    I hope they mean people who haven’t bought the full retail game (dead or alive 5 ultimate core fighters) because if i heard right they specified that they would never have DLC Fighters that you have to pay for because it would make it an advantage to people who buy it making the game unbalanced, but it makes since for the core fighters because they haven’t bought the full game so i hope thats what they mean because that’s BS

  • Demeanor

    Dat Meteor Kick! Fantastic move!!! <3

  • RoyalR R.M

    For yall been living under a rock.

    Asian people look young when they are adult(18 and up).

    • Draparde

      But..she’s not Asian.

      I have no problem with how young she looks though, i’ve seen non-aisan people that look way longer than they actually are too.

      • AbsolutGrndZer0

        Yeah, plus the point is she’s classic loligoth. Reminds me of Kerli hehe.

  • That height and build are DEFINITELY not of an 18-year-old Scandinavian.

  • PersonaSpace

    Any word if she’ll be compatible with Core Fighters? I’m not a big DoA player, but I do have Core Figters on my PS3 and I tend to mess with that from time to time, mostly to practice my Kokoro.

    • doubleO7

      I would assume so. Don’t see why she wouldn’t be.

  • Anononymous

    Woo-hoo, can’t wait to put her in a string bikini~ wait.. are there cops outside?

  • I thought she was free and we get her via update. What happened?

    • doubleO7

      Nothing happened. That was merely speculation by fans. She was never officially stated to be free.

  • Kornelious

    Huh, cool. i might pick this game up now, i have the original version (Oh how stupid of me buying a tecmo koei game too soon) so i hadn’t yet but i will now :)

    • Loli Summoner

      You can just download DOA Core, it’s FREE~ and then you can just buy the loli. I know I will….and I’ll…enjoy her *snickers*

    • doubleO7

      Eh, don’t bother with Core Fighters. The full game can be found at Gamestop new for about $20. Seeing as how each Core Fighters character costs $4, its much more cost effective to just get the retail version.

      • AbsolutGrndZer0

        Yep, just today bought DOA5U today at GameStop myself. :) Will get all the costumes probably sometime next month but right now I am saving my money for Marie Rose, going to get her Character+Costume Full Set. :D
