Today Koei Tecmo reached out with a press release to announce the return of three more characters to Dead or Alive 6.
This time around we get Bass, Tina, and Mila, in a pro-wrestling themed trailer.
“Known as “The King of the Ring,” Bass is a seasoned professional wrestler known for his destructive power and versatile throwing techniques. He’s also the doting father of Tina, “The Superstar of a Thousand Dreams.” And while Tina flashes some of the same versatile throws as her father; including an explosive new slam added to her repertoire, she is also proficient in strikes as Bass trains her to become the top wrestler in the world. But, Tina isn’t the only female ready to fight in DEAD OR ALIVE 6; as professional wrestling fan, Mila, has also been added to the line-up. Nicknamed “The Hot-Blooded Champ,” Mila is a mixed-martial artist known for winning titles as a result of tackling techniques and her expertise in the ground-and-pound game that she hopes will prove fruitful in her quest to ultimately takedown her long-time rival, Bass.”
On top of the characters, we also get the reveal of the new stage dubbed “The Muscle” which is also the name of the professional wrestling organization they belong to. To add some thrill to the whole thing, since Dead or Alive 6 stages can’t just be normal rings, the ropes are electrified. Fire also comes out of the surrounding pillars.
You can check out the trailer below, alongside an official batch of screenshots. Incidentally, the trailer is in English, so I also included the one with Japanese voices at the bottom of the post.
Due to the tease which came earlier this week, you may have expected different characters, but as the Japanese say, this is this, and that is that. Incidentally, you can definitely expect a lot of info about the game coming your way starting next week.
Recently, Koei Tecmo revealed another trailer and a few images of the game. Nyotengu will be a pre-order bonus and Phase 4 will come with the digital deluxe edition. An event dedicated to the game named Dead or Alive Festival 2018 has also been announced and will happen on November 18th.
You should also not forget to read our recent interview with Producer and Director Yohei Shimbori.
Dead or Alive 6 will release worldwide on February 15th, 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. You can already pre-order it on Amazon.
