Yesterday Famitsu unveiled Dead or Alive 5: Last Round‘s new character Honoka, and today Koei Tecmo revealed the first gameplay trailer and pictures, giving us the first detailed look on the pink haired schoolgirl.
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.
Honoka will be voiced for the Japanese version of the game by Ai Nonaka. Funnily, Famitsu introduced her yesterday as the character with the “top breasts” in the game, and looking at the video and screenshots, it’s hard not to agree.
Check out the “Honoka Fu” in action and see if she suits your style just below.
