Momiji battles Kasumi and a Buddha statue helps.

Tecmo Koei has released the debut trailer for Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, due out this fall for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in Japan.

The video shows newcomer Momiji, making her way from the Ninja Gaiden series, fighting Kasumi in the new Sky City Tokyo stage, set in a garden atop a skyscraper in near future Tokyo, where a giant Buddha statue lends a helping hand.

Watch the trailer below. Famitsu has some screenshots here.

  • Cry_Zero

    That stage looks awesome. They have to put more characters in!

  • PrinceHeir

    amazing stuff!!!!!

    though im not sure about her new remix theme :(

    they should have used her original Sigma 2/Razor’s Edge theme

    also Powerblow on air!?!?!?! wow!!!!!!

    i hope we also get Ayane’s theme from the Sigma 2/Razor’s Edge series.

    this is why we need that custom BGM music from the Vita version as well as theme’s from Ninja Gaiden that i mentioned.

    love Tecmo Koei :P

    Video isnt working

  • Kobracon

    I hope this comes with all the DLC. That would be a good deal.

    @ around the 01:02 mark – Is that Leon I see there?

    • PrinceHeir

      yup :D

      especially with the head scarf or whatever

  • XypherCode

    The video is in private :(

  • Zaid Jamal

    It says it’s private. Was it public 10 minutes ago? cuz if so……. DAMMIT

  • Anime10121

    She plays exactly like i thought she would, like a hard hitting ninja in comparison to Ayane’s speedy style and Kasumi’s floaters.

    • Peacenutman

      Her fighting stance looks like Asuka’s from Tekken.

  • Sae-Won Yoon

    Momijo is all well and good (another candidate for DOAX3?)

    But who’s that guy at the end?????

    • MrKappa

      Looks like Leon at the end there.

  • Kurisu Makise

    I’m really not sure how I feel about this Ultimate expansion. Isn’t that a huge negative for the fighting game community? Does Street Fighter 2 Turbo, Super Street Fighter, etc not come to mind? I think the worse is the fact that Vita just got DOA5+ and now there’s already a new version. Why didn’t they just delay DOA5+ and make it DOA5 U for the fall and cross-buy? So much questions/concerns about this.

    • Carlos Luis Ayala

      More money look at NG3 they made Razors Edge

      • Kurisu Makise

        Money is indeed the answer sadly but it also dissuades buyers from buying a game on the first run. You don’t want people to hold out for “Ultimate” versions. You want the Ultimate to be “inclusive” and treated as a pseudo sequel, where the buyer is simply hungry for more content. I dunno if the DOA5 community was hungry yet.
