Back when Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja announced that Dead or Alive Kasumi would be making her way into Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge as a (free) DLC playable character, they didn’t say which costumes the Mugen Tenshin kunoichi would be able to wear in the Wii U action title – other than her default appearance, in her new stealth suit costume as introduced in DOA5, of course.
Does this mean that Kasumi would come without additional costumes, since the DLC update is free to begin with? Of course not. Don’t be silly. Team Ninja is legendary when it comes to fanservice (which YouTube user BloodBurger has done a good job documenting in these videos).
Team Ninja simply wasn’t ready to share specifics on Kasumi’s appearance yet. Today, they finally are, and have come forward not only with new screens featuring Kasumi in all her various forms of kunoichi fanservice, but also a deadly trailer to prove that
she kicks high she’s kick-ass.
Costumes-wise, other than the stealth suit you have to unlock in DOA5 by almost-clearing the Story mode, Kasumi will also have the option to don on her classic Player 1 and Player 2 costumes that have been stalwarts in the entire Dead or Alive series, as well as a fourth costume that
appears to be brand new (at least, I don’t believe I’ve seen it in any DOA title). is actually Kasumi’s C5 costume in Dead or Alive 5 (special thanks to SGCafe reader Ixbran for the clarification!)
