Dead or Alive 5: Last Round will be coming out February 20th. Bringing Dead or Alive 5 to next generation consoles looks like it’s set to be the most definitive edition of the game yet. But it’s more than just a simple reissue, featuring many updates. Even new characters. Here is one of them: Honoka, an 18 year old schoolgirl 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. 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”. Since her build is that of an average teenage girl, her moves, while skilled, may not always pack the same punch 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.
