Here’s How Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate’s Female Tengu Plays

By Ishaan . June 4, 2014 . 1:15pm

Following teases by Team Ninja, this week’s Famitsu magazine confirmed that Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate is indeed getting a Female Tengu (“Nyotengu”) character, and now they’ve shared a gameplay trailer for her, which you can watch below.

 

 

As reported earlier today, Nyotengu focuses on aerial movement. You can even see her flapping about in mid-air and creating gusts in the trailer above.

 

Nyotengu will be available in Japan later this month as part of an update.

      • fool

        I’d send out my Unicorn

        • SoundMatch

          I’m sure you would love to NT-D her. Hopefully not NT-R. HAHA.

  • http://fr.twitch.tv/Nhatalya Aleksandrina

    Perfecto.

    I love everything about her. Outfit, hair, voice, moves. She’s gorgeous. While I do feel sad for those who wanted to have the old Tengu back, this is just so much better.

    • Death Metal

      You have said it, sir. Exactly what I feel about her.

      Very good new character, Team Ninja. You’re doing the right things!

    • Romancer Ecclesia

      Pretty sure all the characters broke his penis nose in DOA 2, one way or another. doubt he’d survive that onslaught :P

  • Ren Yuumei

    DONT BULLY MARIE!

      chibi maid is so short she can’t even reach~

    ……..Amazing <3

  • SerRompalot

    It’s so eccentric that I kept shaking my head through the trailer xD.

    Especially the old-speak.

    Aya Shameimaru made it in. What’s next, Kappa?

    um

    Perfect

    Yush, more waifus.

    DOA’s Devil Jin…now wheres my wallet….

  • Callonia

    I APPROVE OF THIS LADY TENGU!

  • z_merquise

    I like this character.

    Now I’m thinking of getting DOA5 Ultimate. So all DLCs bought in vanilla work in Ultimate, right?

    • doubleO7

      Yes, you’ll have access to all the costumes you’ve already purchased.

      • z_merquise

        Good to know. Thanks.

  • laurenhiya21

    Ooo I really like her D: I’ve never DOA before but I’m a bit interested now haha (even if I know I would be god awful at it… never played a fighter other than Smash Bros ><)

    • Kayseur

      DOA is pretty easy to get into, and it’s actually not hard either to get decent (at least against a computer) if you use the challenge / combos trials mode most fighting games have overall.

      • Kamakuma

        God Mila and her bull in those combo’s…Why does she insist on pinning me on the ground and wailing on me?! I thought we were friends! t—t

      • laurenhiya21

        Well that’s good to know :) The only real reason why I haven’t played any other fighters is that some of them can look really daunting ><

        • Kayseur

          They may look daunting, but if you actually like the fighting game genre, it’s totally worth it to learn a bit about how to play one of those. That’s really where the fun comes from — from the satisfying feeling of knowing what you do instead of just mashing buttons and stuff.

          I’m hardly a pro or anything and still get beaten from all sides online in Blazblue, but when I finally gave in and learned how to control my character that’s when I fell in love with this game, and actually managed to use the reflexes I learned in other fighters as well down the line.

    • Alestaos

      If you have a 3DS DoA Dimensions does a good job in getting up to story point on the games and what character is who for what reason :)

      • laurenhiya21

        Hmm I might have to check it out then… Thanks for the info :)

  • Slayven19

    I love this character wow! But why didn’t they save her for DOA6? I guess they have enough creativity for characters when the time comes I guess, but even still this would have been a good DOA6 secret boss or something.

    • subsamuel01

      I don’t think they have any plans for DOA6 anytime soon. It took 7 years for DOA 5 to come out.

      • Slayven19

        You may be right, but I’d assume they’d be working on something for next gen

  • Raltrios

    Ara ara~

    Never was fan Tengu till now ! NyoTengu here i come !

  • SerChief

    Love it!!!

  • EinMugenTenshin

    She reminds me of Bayonetta, and not in a bad way.

    • Superior Spider-Man

      What about a “bad” way?

  • Black Is a Status

    She used a Zangief from street fighter slam

  • Bob Slim

    She is so hot cant wait to get her love you team ninja

  • fairysun

    Attention posters:
    This is how you actually troll people.

    P.S. Sorry Marie!

  • makubexnas
  • ajneez

    I LOOOOOOOOOVE THIS CHARACTER!!! ONE OF THE BEST THAT I SEE IN DOA. WITH THIS AND THE NEW MORTAL KOMBAT I WILL HAVE FOR MONTHS….

  • Kayriss Wins

    The female equivalent of Tengu? I’ll TAKE IT

  • Ixbran

    She seems like a very interesting character. I like they kept the exaggerated poses and stances Tengu had when using the Tengu-Do fighting style. I also love the music that played during the trailer <3. Though the tongue bit at the end … eeeehhh … i feel that was very unnecessary, but I guess it helps get the attention of hormone laden straight men to purchase her so w/e.

    I have a feeling she might be the next DoA character Koei chooses to put in a future Warriors Orochi game, should they ever make a WO4. Lord knows shed be able to fit right in.

  • sunK1D

    At this point I don’t know if I want DOA 6 or DOA 5 port to next-gen…

  • new_tradition

    I kind of wished she kept the mask on xD

  • roockie112

    I love DOA but they need to add more males aswell not that I got anything against the women in the game

    • Hector Velar

      they need to bring back Raidou, Shiden, Genra and Joe Musashi (Shinobi). Wonder if we can start a petition for it. I long ago posted on their Facebook to bring Momiji and Rachael among others and they brought those two. Just recently I posted about Raidou, Shiden, Genra, Joe Musashi on their FB page so I hope they listen again.

      • roockie112

        that sounds awesome

  • Hector Velar

    yup they did it again. the one game that keeps improving and improving.

  • konsama

    This character is made of so much win in every aspect.

  • David García Abril

    So, in the end is just Tengu with a female skin.

    Sorry, not impressed.

    • Ixbran

      I knew this is what was gonna happen, but no one believed me

      : P

      • David García Abril

        I gotta say, I prefer Kasumi Phase-4 any day of the week.

        A character that looks old but plays new is better than one that looks new but plays old.

        (The ideal would be a character that both plays and looks new, though)

    • http://fr.twitch.tv/Nhatalya Aleksandrina

      Still, she’s better than the original.

      • David García Abril

        Only because it’s a female now?

        • http://fr.twitch.tv/Nhatalya Aleksandrina

          Done with you. :<

          I'm a girl, and I find her a lot better than Tengu. Yes, design wise she's like 8000x better.

          • Skode

            Well said. I assume the mask can be toggled on or off… it didnt feature very much in the trailer but all in all shes a well designed character, the moveset at least nods towards the character of old and i can personally see her being very popular even if albeit a DLC character in herself.

        • Doctor Nebula

          I still have deep hatred for the Tengu boss due to the amount of times I had to fight him c:

    • Sean ‘Geg’ Reddie

      It’s annoying. The ridiculous amount of DLC for Ultimate has put me off the series and with 5 having the worst story in the series but the best gameplay, in my opinion, it sucks.

      I could put up with the fanservice, but making Tengu a girl is just stupid.

      • http://fr.twitch.tv/Nhatalya Aleksandrina

        No, it’s not stupid. The tengu are a species, it’s not one person. So the “Tengu” we know isn’t the only one, there are other tengus too.

        In case you need a proof: http://deadoralive.wikia.com/wiki/Tengu

      • Thomaz Barros

        This is my personal opinion, but i find that if the DLC is actually made after the game was released then i’m okay with it.
        In the end its a way to legthen(sp?) the longevity of the game

      • Slayven19

        How does 5 have the worst story when the other games hardly had any story at all minus endings? You people will complain about anything.

        • Sean ‘Geg’ Reddie

          They’ve all had cutscenes inbetween fights since Dead or Alive 2. Dimensions was the best with the compilation of each games stories. The point is, I didn’t like 5′s story and I can’t even remember it that well.

          I was disappointed with 5 after the amazing game that was 4. The DLC just annoys me because of how much there is and how stupidly expensive it is.

          • Hector Velar

            i dont know what you are talking about, this game is nothing but PLOT ;)

  • ZetaSiren

    I like what I see. :)

  • Ecchitori-san

    Dem melons!!

  • z_merquise

    I’m curious, I notice some old men and women in anime and video games say “wara-wara” or ending their sentence with “-ja” like this Tengu lady does.

    Does it signify anything or do old people in Japan talk like that?

    • Ixbran

      she is 1018 years old, according to the famitsu article that revealed her, so I imagine her speech pattern is meant to match the period in which she was born in. she is probably going to have a lot of out of date phrases and quotes to go along with this.

    • Zens

      Warawa (妾) is a old pronoun for “I”, same with -ja at the end of sentences.
      This is something you would hear a lot in shinto gods, other mistical creatures from japanese folklore and characters in any japanese media that is very tradicional.

    • Suicunesol

      It’s also pretty common (in anime at least) for an elderly Japanese character to have some kind of “-ja” at the end of their sentences. So the -ja is meant to signify that Tengu girl is really a senior, contrary to her appearance.

      Ymir from Queen’s Blade (who is a grandma dwarf who looks like a loli) also has this trait.

    • WhyWai

      Wow.. Very informative comments. I’m ashamed that I only looking at her breasts.

  • ndjn3979

    Smexy

  • Keine

    Devil Jin??

  • MrJechgo

    That’s all good and all, but… why not add Shiden already? FYI, Shiden is Kasumi’s and Hayate’s father who was last seen… in DoA: Dimensions as a secret boss, not even as a PC.

    Why not add him to the roster already? You take the Dimensions model, refine it and boom, you’re done.

    • ALfromHELLSING

      Yeah, I wish they added him too. They can make him next DLC character, so we get a male for a change. Would have been pretty cool.

      • MrJechgo

        Indeed, not because of the male/female ratio, but because he’s a potential addition that is pending since Dimensions.

        Unless he’s dead in DoA5′s story? That wasn’t the case, right?

        • ALfromHELLSING

          No, he’s not mentioned anywhere in the DoA5′s story. I guess it depends how many fans will ask for him to be in the game.

        • ThirdChildZKI

          Canonically, he’s been dead since Ryu killed him back in DOA2.

  • ALfromHELLSING

    Man, she’s awesome! Kinda reminds me of Morrigan Aensland from Darkstalkers. Way cooler than the regular Tengu. Great job Team NINJA!

    I haven’t got any of the new characters yet, I’m waiting to buy the pack with all of them in September. I’m hoping next character is a guy, someone like Rig or Ein.

  • Nitraion

    LOL DOA5 have worst storyline IMO..
    But gameplay is good while feel like bare when there is no story/boss battle in arcade mode….
    So they feel even tengu need a female version for the sake of costume DLC sales XD

  • KoRLumen

    “Kimochi~?”

    I think I found my new favourite character.

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    New favorite character confirmed lol. I love her personality and movements so much lol

  • Romancer Ecclesia

    *licks her lips*
    ooh yea. that’s what DOA is all about. them BALANCED FIGHTING MECHANICS AND INTERESTING GAMEPLAY :3

  • TerrenceEncore Jones

    I like her already!

  • Suicunesol

    I actually don’t think she looks Tenguey enough. The long-nose mask is a pretty important part of the Tengu lore. Give her some kind of mask at least to maintain that air of mystery.

    • RocKM001 .

      She wears one on her “bayonetta/all leather” outfit xD

  • aizen310

    New character and is not a Kasumi clone?

    WOW

  • WhyWai

    Hot!

  • Göran Isacson

    No massive phallus-nose no buy. One that’s actually a part of her anatomy mind you, like the old Tengu. THAT would have been hilarious to see. Take this Tengu-pretender out of my sight!

    • Hector Velar

      i dont know what you and leingod are talking about. look carefully some costumes she does wears the mask. it can get knocked off. i guess pessimist gonna be pessimist. wonder why you guys dont use that energy when capcom, square, namco and all the pay to win mobile game crap butt r@pes you?! instead you come to crap something alot of people are excited about! good job

      • Göran Isacson

        You are a precious, frustrated gem of poor reading comprehension for all to adore, and I’m upvoting this comment just because I don’t really know what else to do with it.

  • leingod

    Hey, she says the same stuff the original Tengu did back on DOA2! She looks cool, too… even if she lacks the mask. I wish TK supported the Vita version as much as they do the others :( … that’s the only version I really play.

  • greavah

    Take my money pls.

  • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

    She’s hot and has wings. She’s a total win.

  • lozffvii

    Ayayayayayayaya….

  • Rawindra

    -_-’ Teasy… But… is it me or that Tengu Lady’s JP voice sounded like Mai Shiranui?

  • Ronldbx6

    That was sick!

  • Ric Vazquez

    Yay more waifus, can’t have enough plot.

  • Vash bane

    that Marie part made me lolz
