Momiji joins upcoming fighter update.

The new Dead or Alive project first teased late last month is Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, this week’s Famitsu reveals.

So far, we know only that Momiji (pictured) from the Ninja Gaiden series will be added as a playable character.

Thanks, Tale Tale Source.

    HELLZ YES!!!!

  • dior

    I’d rather have Sonia

  • Eclipse

    Yowza! I’ve been waiting quite some time for Momiji to finally be a playable character. Will buy!

  • sunK1D

    Momiji in a bikini. ’bout time!

  • XypherCode

    I just hope this is DLC. Anyway It’s great they’re adding Momiji. Always wanted her to join DOA. Maybe they can add Mizuki McCloud as well. XD

    • DrForbidden

      It’s not likely to be DLC, I think…

      • XypherCode

        Yeah It’ll probably be not.

  • 武神水樹

    I guess they didn’t want to be original

  • PrinceHeir

    love Momiji :)

    i hope for a disc release like Razor’s Edge with the characters returning like Rachel, Ein, Leon, Mizuki Mcloud and Irene Law/Sonia can be bonus too

    other boss characters to return just to play with it like in Dimensions. Alpha-152, Gohyakumine Bankotsubo, Kasumi Alpha, Genra, Raidou

    new improvements from DOA5+

    Custom BGM(most important feature), the new tutorial mode and combo challenge, detailed move list, gallery mode featuring the cutscenes from story mode

    let’s go Team Ninja!!!!

  • Elvick

    I’ll stick with DoA5+ (although, I would enjoy playing Momiji…)

  • GhostNomad

    Lol…. DoA5 was released in September of 2012. DoA5+ was released roughly five and a half months later, March of 2013. DoA5U coming as a disk release for another $40 most likely? I’m sorry but I’ll pass. Since when did Capcom start running the show?

    • Tre W

      …Who said anything about Capcom?

      Remember DOA2: LE for Dreamcast? How about DOA2 Hardcore for PS2?

      • GhostNomad

        I said something about Capcom. In case you haven’t been keeping track, it was a comment on their habit of releasing a game then releasing the same game one year later for $40 with DLC included, and then releasing a third version for another $40, and then a port for $40.

        Also, I’m sure you’re trying to reference something about DoA’s past, but my first entry into the series was 4 on the Xbox and I got to play that for all of 30 minutes before said Xbox kicked the bucket and was removed from existence shortly, but that’s another story. DoA5 is the first DoA game I’ve actually played extensively. I’m not exactly experienced in DoA’s history, and sure, while the particular business practice detailed above isn’t a unique case, it’s still generally unpleasant and disliked.

    Another follower of StreetFighterIV-ism, I see…

    • Elvick

      More a Team Ninja thing really. They’ve been doing re-re-releases a lot, before SFIV came out.

      • bloodiOS

        Hmm… true…
        Well, here’s hoping that this version is going to be upgradable through DLC as I’m not personally fond of buying multiple versions of a game (unless it’s a complete remake.)

  • Serovath

    note to self. like capcom games, tecmokoei games no longer to be bought at launch. if they launch an update for exisiting doa5 users, then i’ll bite.

    • Ritsujun

      Well, i got DOA5 for free from PS+.

  • shogunknight

    It better be a long list, a long lustful list of new characters

  • Gojira Twit

    Hopefully she has the original white ninja outfit from Dragon Sword as an alt. I never really liked the red outfit.
