Getting a Spartan into Dead or Alive 4

Bungie community mouth-piece Frakie put up a piece on how a spartan (named Nicole) made it into Team Ninja's upcoming (soon hopefully) Dead or Alive 4 . Turns out, Team Ninja wanted the chief himself (who wouldn't?) but Bungie wasn't too keen on that idea. Since they liked the idea of a spartan in a DOA game,  they basically invented up a spartan, fleshed out her backstory, gave her some sweet sounding moves, the whole's her backstory:
Nicole was born in the year 2531 in the city of New Legaspi on Mars. At six years of age she was abducted by agents of the Office of Naval Intelligence and conscripted into the Spartan II program. The Spartan II program was the UNSC's highly successful military project to augment and hone perfect soldiers.

SPARTAN-458's unit was preparing for a classified mission on Nassau Station when the ONI stealth ship Apocalypso tumbled into real-space – being carried along in the wake of a freak slipspace anomaly. The anomaly intersected Nassau Station; creating a semi-stable "bubble" in the space/time continuum on its way back to the 21st Century.

For the time being Nicole-458 is trapped in the 21st century; guarding Nassau Station's secrets with all but lethal force (she realizes killing someone in the past could have dire consequences), waiting for the "bubble" to collapse and hopefully returning her to the year 2552.

Very cool and still Halo universe related. Still no mention of Halo 3 anywhere...ho hum...
