Dead or Alive 5: Last Round now has the absolute full complement of unrealistically busty women with the addition of a lass in a schoolgirl uniform.


Honoka is Dead or Alive 5: Last Round’s final all-new character.

“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,” Tecmo Koei said.

“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’.”

According to the additional character information, Honoka can’t hit as hard as the fighters she copies moves from, but in her Hissatsu-no-Kamae stance she has strength beyond her tender years.

Here are some screenshots and a trailer.

Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is coming to PC, PlayStation 3, PS4 and Xbox One next month. A Core Fighters version will be available free-to-play on PS4, while a free trial will be available on Xbox One. Both free versions include Ayane, Hayate, Kasumi and Ryu Hayabusa and “almost every game mode”, but only the PS4 version can be upgraded piecemeal with DLC purchases; the Xbox One instead gets a paid version of Core Fighters with another four more fighters, and this can then be upgraded via DLC.

All Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate purchases carry over, including cross-generationally within console families.
