Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate is getting a third new DLC character, after Marie Rose and Phase 4, and the new playable character is said to be 1018 years old. Which most certainly means she's not human, in spite of her looks..

Unveiled in the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu magazine, the new character is simply called "Female Tengu" (or "NyoTengu" in Japanese). .

She is a member of the same mysterious race of ancient mythical creatures that DOA2's final boss, Tengu, belonged to, and as such possesses a number of moves similar to that former DOA character. But she also comes with a number of new moves all of her own -- mostly making use of her flight ability..

According to Famitsu, Female Tengu is slated to come to both the arcade and console versions of Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate sometime in late June. The console patch that makes Female Tengu playable will also add Phase 4 (who's already playable in the arcade version) to the roster..

Here are some pictures of the new character that Famitsu has published; a new character trailer for Female Tengu is also available after the break.
