Koei Tecmo announced during the Tokyo Game Show that four series mainstays will make their way to their upcoming fighter Dead or Alive 6.
Returning to the game is “The Killer Kunoichi” Ayane, who uses a number of different moves in the Mugen Tenshin Hajinmon style of Ninjutsu. She must hunt down her half-sister Kasumi while fighting in the tournament found in the game.
Also returning to the game is the fighter Marie Rose, who made her debut in Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate Arcade. Dubbed “the Wicked Lil’ Servant,” she uses a fluid fighting style called “Russian military style.”
The 18-year-old “Super-Secret Fighter Chick” Honoka will make her return to the series as well. Her fighting style is different from the other combatants – dubbed “Honoka Fu,” she based it off of other fighters’ moves while in the Hissatsu-no-Kamae stance.
Finally, Bayman was announced as a returning fighter for Dead or Alive 6. He is also known as “The Man Who Overcame Death,” and uses Combat Sambo skills. His first appearance can be traced back to the original Dead or Alive game that came out in 1996.
New to Dead or Alive 6’s fighting game engine are the Fatal Rush and Break Gauge mechanics, along with visible damage that can be seen on each of the fighters. The game will come out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 15, 2019.
