I’m somewhat over-excited for Dead Or Alive 6 next year, a feeling that only cemented by seeing it played at EGX 2018 on the Playstation Access Stage. Koei Tecmo have kept the hype burning with a slow trickle of news regarding the game since it was revealed, and today have announced three returning characters for the sixth instalment; Bass, Tina, and Mila.
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.
Last, but not least, is 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.
With these three comes the new wrestling stage, “THE MUSCLE.” As an introduction to their new fighting ring, the father-daughter duo of Bass and Tina gather reporters inside an arena to unveil their new professional wrestling organisation, also known as The Muscle. Inside the arena stage, not only will the action be fast and fierce, but the ring ropes surge with electrical current while the steel pillars surrounding the squared-circle bellow fire at warry brawlers. Who has what it takes to bring home the championship?
So, we’re starting to get a fairly decent roster already for the game, with still months to go. Is your favourite playable yet in Dead Or Alive 6, or are you still holding out? Let us know in the comments, or on Twitter, and check back for more coverage of Dead Or Alive 6 and other Japanese games.
Dead Or Alive 6 is due for release on February 19th 2019 for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Steam.
