Dead or Alive‘s purple-haired ninja brawls her way into Senran Kagura: Estival Versus later this month.
Dead or Alive 5: Last Round players may have noticed that several of the DLC costume sets are cross-over items based on other franchises. One of the more popular sets comes from Marvelous Entertainment’s Senran Kagura franchises, with costumes based on members from the franchise’s two main ninja factions. In light of Senran Kagura content coming to Dead or Alive, the latest title in the Senran Kagura series is getting its own piece of DOA-themed DLC.
Developer Marvelous Entertainment revealed this past March that Ayane of Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden would be available as a DLC playable character for Senran Kagura: Estival Versus. The purple-haired ninja will be available to download for both the PS4 and PS Vita versions, though it has not been revealed if the DLC is a Cross-Buy item. Marvelous released a new gameplay trailer featuring Ayane defeating hordes of ninjas with a few of her signature DOA moves:
An official release date has not been scheduled, however Ayane will release for both versions later this month. Senran Kagura: Estival Versus is currently available in Japan for PS4 and PS Vita; North American versions will arrive sometime this Winter.
North America will also receive another Senran Kagura title next month, with Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson, releasing exclusively for the 3DS on 9/15.
