Team Ninja Adds More Women to Dead or Alive 5

Canadian prospect Rig is not the only new character in Team Ninja’s upcoming fighter. Revealed today is Mila, a spunky new up-and-coming mixed-martial artist who looks to specialize in all grounds (as good a MMA fighter should). Striking, (Greco-Roman?) wrestling and ground ‘n pound, the young woman has it all as she looks to propel herself to the top of the new Dead or Alive tournament.

I’m more curious how Team Ninja will be handling the ground game aspect of Mila. From the trailer shown below, it looks like it’s just a simple button combo to drag your opponent to the ground and lay some devastating hammerfists, but it certainly would be a lot more interesting if there was a strategy for defending yourself off your back. Regardless, Dead or Alive 5 is out later this month for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 and currently features two new characters and up to three Virtua Fighter cameos.
