After making headlines as the very first loli character in the Dead or Alive fighting game series, Marie Rose will finally be playable in home consoles.


During the final round of the national Dead or Alive 5 tournament held yesterday, January 12, 2014, Team Ninja developer Yosuke Hayashi made several new announcements for the popular fighting game franchise.

He revealed that the ver. 1.04 update for the Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate game for the arcade, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will be implemented. The new update will have yet-to-be-announced features  and will start with the arcade version by the end of January.


But perhaps the biggest news that Hayashi has announced during the event is the fact that Marie Rose will be playable for home consoles, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 starting Spring 2014. The diminutive Swedish fighter with a gothic lolita fashion sense has only been available for the DOA5U arcade version so far. Her arrival to home consoles has been highly awaited by DOA fans all over the world.
