Today Koei Tecmo released an extensive batch of screenshots of its upcoming fighting game Dead or Alive 6.
The screenshots feature the latest characters who have recently been revealed for the game. This includes Ayane, Honoka, Marie Rose, and Bayman.
We also get an extensive description of each character for those who are not familiar with them.
The first fighter returning to the fray is Ayane. Ordered to hunt down her half-sister, Kasumi, Ayane’s Mugen Tenshin Hajinmon style of Ninjutsu is as fierce as it gets. Dubbed “The Killer Kunoichi,” Ayane’s ever-changing moves are polished to the point that her opponents have a hard time seeing what is coming next. Forced to live in the shadows, she attempts to fight through her conflicted feelings toward her half-sister, while also fighting her way to the top of the tournament.
The second combatant marking her return is Swedish martial artist, Marie Rose. Marie, known as “The Wicked Lil’ Servant,” boasts a Russian military style emphasizing constant fluidity of movement, enabling the fighter to utilize her small frame to her advantage, outmanoeuvring enemies with a variety of tricky moves while turning her opponent’s attacks against them.
Next up is the “Super-Secret Fighter Chick” known as Honoka. This 18-year-old fan of professional wrestling and martial arts movies invented her own fighting style known as Honoka Fu; an art where she combines her favourite moves from fighters she has observed. While in her Hissatsu-no-Kamae stance, she is imbued with unbelievable strength, making her capable of delivering attacks the likes even she has never seen before as her right hand emits a mysterious glow.
The final fighter re-entering the arena is former professional assassin, Bayman. Known as “The Man Who Overcame Death,” Bayman stands inside the ring with the same kind of cold-hearted professionalism that made him such a successful mercenary thanks to his devastatingly-dangerous skills in Combat Sambo.
Debuting at Tokyo Game Show is also a new stage named Lost Paradise. It’s a jungle stage with ruins of ancient civilizations featuring plenty of secrets and dangers. There are even dinosaurs including a Pteradon and a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
Don’t ask me why Dead or Alive 6 went all the way to Jurassic Park. At this point, I just nod and accept the craziness.
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.
Recently, Koei Tecmo revealed a trailer showcasing Ayane, Honoka, and Marie Rose in action. Nyotengu will be a pre-order bonus and Phase 4 will come with the digital deluxe edition. a brand new female character has also been teased.
