King of Fighters’ Mai Shiranui joins Dead or Alive 5: Last Round cast

If you can think of any fighter from any fighting series to join the lovely ladies in Dead or Alive 5: Last Round, who would be the first character you would think of. For many of us SNK fans, Fatal Fury/King of Fighters resident Ninja, Mai Shiranui would be a shoo-in for… obvious reasons.

Team Ninja announced at the Dead or Alive Festival in Japan that fan favourite King of Fighters character will be joining Dead or Alive 5: Last round in September, she will also be joined by a trio of costumes based on some of the leading ladies the KOF series.

Mai hit the scene in Fatal Fury 2 back in 92, and has remained a series staple character throughout, even appearing in the upcoming King of Fighters XIV which is set to release in August.
