    Not worse than capcom …yet.
    Generic anime loli coming to consoles.
    Whelp, nevermind :P

  • MrJechgo

    Nightcrawler XD?

    • BloodyNights

      Maximum Weskasumi!

    • Superior Spider-Man

      She is just bamfing all over the place.

      • MrJechgo

        Hence the reference ;)

        • Superior Spider-Man

          I know. I was just following up.

    • John Hayabusa

      Like those teleports of her. For another clone, she looks more varied and teleport-focused. Also, she looks like a genderbent Alchemist or a bustier Jill Valentine.

  • OkamiKing

    Yea, but if Capcom does anything similar to this, they get a parade of dirty comments and insulting slurs. I don’t see anyone calling this lazy at all… Nope.

    • Lalum

      Probably because more people care about Street Fighter than DoA.

    • Lynx

      This has nothing to do with Capcom.

      Don’t bring that crap into a topic it has nothing to do with.

    • Slayven19

      Well tbh this is free unlike the SF4U evil cammy. Still I’m one of the people who saw it coming so the hate had already left me long ago.

      • DaiRaiOh

        You say that, but considering Marie Rose isn’t free, I doubt she will be either

        • Slayven19

          Well if she isn’t then that’s their loss.

          • DaiRaiOh

            lol at that edit

    • BloodyNights

      This character wasn’t majorly hyped in the slightest, it was more like a character they basically announced out of no where as an addition. She’s rockin a pretty cool outfit, and she’s doing some flashy stuff in her trailer as well. Biggest problem with Capcom’s is they intentionally built hype and built everyone’s expectations up, of a new character to the SF universe, only for it to be a Cammy clone. A character already despised for her play style. A lot of people were waiting for the big reveal only to feel like they had been slapped in the face, after seeing Capcom pick the worst possible character choice. That’s all. Don’t build hype if you can’t back it up lol

      • DaiRaiOh

        Most of the community guessed it was going to be her though. It really wasn’t that much of a surprise. From the hints they gave, it was obvious that it was going to be a doll, and she was one of the most popular ones on account of the comics. Plus she plays very differently than Cammy anyway. Honestly, the majority of the people complaining about her are the ones who don’t even play the game in the first place. They just like to complain about Capcom.

      • pressstart

        What’s wrong with a Cammy “clone”? The last one was in SFA3. The only reason it’s being hated on is because people are mad about the state of Cammy in SSF4AE2012. Bad timing :(

        Never understood the hype for the character reveal anyway. It was people’s own desires and need to know that built up the hype way too far.

        • BloodyNights

          Nothing is really wrong with having someone who has the exact same model as Cammy with slightly different clothes. Sure Cammy isn’t popular right now, it’s mostly hate because there is so many other characters out there that people would rather see. Gouken’s Daughter, Hakan’s Wife, Karin, Alex, Urien, Q, Mystery new comer X chick that we wouldn’t see coming.

          Instead we got a doll, it’s just meh. And yeah fans overhyped it, but Capcom went with the flow, they could have revealed it a while back if they wanted too. They also basically discredited it to most fans who guessed her. So people expected someone different.

          Like I said the reason this isn’t getting bashed, is because it’s more like an add on, no one really asked for it, it didn’t have any high expectations, it just showed up.

        • AndyLC

          ’cause Juni and Juri were designed by Capcom’s core artists and looked good, compared to decapre being an Udon original.

    • MrJechgo

      Kasumi now has 3 clones. However, they didn’t fight the same.
      - Kasumi-Alpha has Kasumi’s earlier moveset, y’know, as in “previous games moveset”, similar to how NESTS Kyo is different from Kyo in KoF13 and how Iori with flames is different than current Iori in that same game.

      - Alpha-152 plays nothing like Kasumi… and God, she’s annoying >:(

      - Phase-4 seems to be different than kasumi, as a whole… and she teleports like crazy. In fact, since Kasumi-Alpha ISN’T in DoA5, maybe they’ll use Phase-4 to make her play like her, thus like early versions of Kasumi, in addition of bamph-ing around.

      • abysswalker

        Or Kyo-1 and Kyo-2 in Kof ’99

        • MrJechgo

          True, but KoF13 was just the first game that popped in my head ;)

        • Death Metal

          Or Devil Jin in Tekken 5 and up.

    • James Reilly

      Yeah except TN didn’t hype P4 for several months that led to inevitable disappointment. TN just revealed her fairly quickly hence why she got much less negative feedback.

      • Kaihedgie

        Capcom didn’t hype up this character either. The fans did

        • James Reilly

          Capcom and especially Ono did. Even Ono though eventually admitted we wouldn’t be happy with who the character is.

          They were being cute giving all these “hints” throughout the several months to build up hype to make us “guess” who it is. You would think after all that buildup it would be this fantastic unique character, but no it’s literally cammy with a mask when you look at the model.

          If Capcom just revealed her fairly quickly without all this unnecessary buildup Decapre would have been much more beloved.

    • Kaihedgie

      Of course. It’s trendy to hate Capcom on everything

    • David García Abril

      You haven’t looked hard enough.

    • AndyLC

      Because nobody cares about an udon original character

    • EinMugenTenshin

      On a different note, we all knew that a new weapon by DOAtec had to be a Kasumi clone, because it is her data they got (from DoA 1), I mean that is just how the story goes. Basically what they’ve done is killed off Kasumi alpha and replaced her with a “scientifically upgrade” => better version (Phase 2 dies to make room for Phase 4).

  • Learii

    is all about Kasumi <3

    • Godmars

      You mean its all about the boobz…

      • Superior Spider-Man

        ::Looks at Marie Rose:: Riiiiiight.

        • Nicholas Santa George

          Looks at every other single character: yep pretty much correct

      • Learii

        no I mean Kasumi is the face of DoA so the game is all about Kasumi

  • Slayven19

    She looks kinda fun, and a mix of alpha 152 and hayabusa.

  • O.O

    Now THAT is some serious a$$ whoopn

  • Brimfyre

    Like everyone else I wrote her off at first, but I can see her becoming my main.

  • Yan Zhao

    Seeing as she has he same model as Kasumi and all, she should be able to wear all of Kasumi’s costumes too!!!!

    • Death Metal

      Even if we know what she looks like, I think she is supposed to remain mysterious, what with the cloak and all.

      • Yan Zhao

        Didnt you see all of her alternate outfits in the video? She was basically Kasumi.

  • John Hayabusa

    She looks like a genderbent Alchemist or a bustier Jill Valentine.

  • Demeanor

    Omg first the fetish mass, then a dark space-time ninja teleporting everywhere, so much wanttt!!!
    I must say, I love how DoA’s movesets show the various styles of martial arts, I was checking out Elliot’s Xing Yi Quan, Lei Fang’s Tai Chi Quan, Kokoro’s Ba Ji Quan etc. and they’re all awesome, every move is a pleasure to behold (and use >:D).
    This game really needs to be appreciated for the fighting aspect :D

  • Servant BerserCAR

    Wow, she’s kinda cool and… BITCH, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO MAH MARIE!!??? (ノ ಠ益ಠ)ノ

  • Lucky Dan

    Well since this is the “ultimate Kasumi” will we see the “ultimate costume” from Tecmo for her underwear which is bottcaps and a band-aid

  • ALfromHELLSING

    I was skeptic about her, but man she looks badass!

  • Tonton Ramos

    The comment section here mentions Capcom and Cammy clone… okay then! Ramlethal Valentine FTW!

  • Loli Summoner

    Badass!

  • Göran Isacson

    Sooo for the people who know the game better than I do, how is this character different from the the other teleporting clone that was in Vanilla DOA 5? Can’t say I see that many differences here.

    • EinMugenTenshin

      I wouldn’t really compare her to Alpha-152, if anything I’d rather compare her more to Kasumi. For starts Alpha-152 has no damage holds, while this character has damage holds. Also, this character has air throws and more on hit combos. Other than that Alpha-152 doesn’t really teleport much in the move sets, but as parts of the none-damaging holds she got and to get out of float. All in all the sample we got isn’t very big, and doesn’t tell us how it is done. I’d say if anything it is something inbetween Kasumi and Alpha-152, with a touch of Momiji. And that is before we’ve even seen a single throw she got.

      • Göran Isacson

        Alright, so from the looks of things she seem to be a more “aggressive” clone that focuses more on damage dealing than the mind-games of holds and escaping float? Eh, I guess there’s a place for that. Mind you I should probably be upfront that I’m not a big fan of clone characters (as in characters who are actual clones) simply because one of the big draws in fighting games for me is varied character designs, so stuff like early Mortal Kombat pallette swaps and literal clones usually makes me roll my eyes… but as long as there’s actual game-play difference between characters, I’m cool with them existing and doing their thing.

    that cinematic looking movement was a special or something?
