An arcade version of Team Ninja's Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate it set to hit arcades in Japan this winter, and will feature a brand new unannounced character, reports Siliconera.

The arcade version will be based on the definitive version of Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate; the game launched this week in North America and Japan for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The arcade edition is currently slated for release in Japan only and will be distributed by Sega. This updated version will feature a new character not present in the console versions of Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate.

Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate Arcade will be the first series title to be released in arcades in 13 years, the last being 2000's Dead or Alive 2 Millennium.
