Dead or Alive 5: Last Round Trailer Introduces Honoka
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Koei Tecmo Games revealed the newest fighter for its Dead or Alive 5: Last Round console and PC fighting game on Wednesday. Honoka was previously teased in a costume trailer last month. Koei Tecmo describes the 18-year-old fighter:
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, nor the mysterious power surging within her. The truth is, Honoka has this strange knack for instantly learning any fighting move she sees. She's never told anyone about her power, but has been itching to test it out in secret...
Honoka takes her favorite moves copied from various sources and fighting styles, and combines them into a unique style which she calls "Honoka Fu". Since her physical condition is that of an average teenage girl, her moves may not always have the same power or reach 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.
The game is slated for February 17 in North America, February 19 in Japan, and February 20 in Europe. Koei Tecmo will release the game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC via Steam.
The game's roster includes 34 characters so far, including guest characters from the Virtua Fighter series. The game will offer over 300 open and unlockable costumes, and the brand new hairstyle and accessory options. Downloadable content from Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate will transfer over.
