As part of the 15th anniversary for Ninja Gaiden, Koei Tecmo announced that the newest character to join the ever-expanding roster of Dead or Alive 6 would be none other than Momiji. The femme fatale will be available to play within the 3D fighter starting September 19th.
You won’t have to wait long to get your hands on the raven-haired shrine maiden, and to help sweeten the deal they also revealed that Momiji will have costumes made available from the wedding costume DLC, the Pirates of the 7 Seas DLC, the Seaside Eden DLC, and the Summer Breeze collection.
You can check out the trailer for Momiji below, courtesy of 名無しくま.
In addition to Momiji there’s also 26 ninja morphing costumes that can be activated by taunting your opponent. The morphing costumes are available for majority of the cast except for DLC characters such as Mai Shiranui, Kula Diamond, and Momiji… which is kind of lame.
Nevertheless, Momiji and the ninja costumes round out the September DLC offerings and the Season Pass 2 content.
Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja also made individual DLC purchases available for the first time on PS4 in North America and Europe via the premium tickets for wardrobe purchases.
As mentioned in a tweet on the official Dead or Alive Twitter account, Momiji and the morphing ninja costumes will be available on Thursday starting September 19th as part of patch 1.11. The DLC will be available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC, along with some bug fixes, upgraded compatibility for the online mode, and various game balance adjustments.
It feels like a lot of this could be too little, too late for the 3D fighter. Team Ninja and Koei Tecmo spent a lot of time sending mixed messages about the game that helped tank its initial sales out of the gate, and now they’re desperate to reel fans back in with a plethora of DLC offerings that seem to be more miss than hit.
In any case, if you purchased the Season Pass 2 then you can look forward to Momiji and the additional morphing ninja costumes to arrive on Thursday.
