Dead or Alive 5: Last Round’s New Playable Character, Honoka, In Action

Recommended Videos


Koei Tecmo have released a trailer of Dead or Alive 5: Last Round’s second new playable character—Honoka. Here’s a description of her:


Having been raised all her life by her gentle and loving grandmother, Honoka is a sweet, easygoing kind of girl… but when she sees a fight, she cannot contain her excitement, or the mysterious power surging within her. Honoka has a strange knack for instantly learning any fighting move she sees. She has kept this power hush-hush, but has been itching to test it out in secret. Honoka studies her favorite moves from various sources and fighting styles, and combines them into a unique style which she calls “Honoka Fu”.


Since her build is that of an average teenage girl, her moves, while skilled, may not always pack the same punch as the fighter she learned them from. In her Hissatsu-no-Kamae stance, however, she is imbued with an unbelievable strength and becomes capable of techniques she has never seen from any other fighter.


Additionally, Koei Tecmo also shared a few new screenshots of the game, including a few of some of the new hairstyles that will only be available on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game.


Dead or Alive 5: Last Round will be released this February for PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
