Today via press release Team Ninja announced that Dead or Alive 5 Last Round will get another new fighter. Today they revealed Honoka, a very easy going girl that mixes several different fighting styles together to make her own. Here is a bit more about her directly from the press release:
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. In new next-gen screenshots released today, Honoka faces numerous adversaries in Brad Wong, Rachel and Leifang. Honoka demonstrates the power of her deadly Hissatsu-no-Kamae stance, as well as showing off some tag team action with Raidou. Each of these new screenshots show never before seen costumes and customizable hairstyles that will only be found in DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Last Round.
Here are some Screenshots and a video of her in action:
She is deadly and cute, but not as cute as Marie Rose. DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Last Round is scheduled to launch in North America on February 17, 2015, and will be available at the price of $39.99 for Steam PC (digital only), PlayStation 4, Xbox One this will be (physical and digital) and $29.99 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 (digital only).
