Since the announcement a short while ago, news has been trickling through about the upcoming Dead Or Alive 6. I won’t lie, I’m massively excited about this game, hence my extensive coverage of any little thing that reaches my ears and eyes. So, Leifang and Hitomi, anyone?
To hype up their presence at Gamesom this week, Koei Tecmo have announced that the two above-mentioned characters will be returning in the new game! As well as this, they announced that the two fighters, alongside a brand-new interactive stage, are set to debut at Gamescom too.
Leifang, known as the T’ai Chi Ch’uan Genius, is the master of using her opponent’s power against them, countering assaults thanks to her flawless Sabaki and Inashi parries. She employs a variety of effective holds to gracefully counter enemy attacks, all the while hoping to prove her strength and capabilities as she pushes forward through the DOA Tournament.
Joining Leifang in DOA6 is “The Fist of Innocence,” Hitomi. The 20-year-old of mixed German and Japanese descent is a well-balanced karate expert; utilising speed, power, and a long reach to take down opponents thanks to a straight punch that is equally beautiful and terrifying. Hitomi specialises in using techniques that combine both offensive and defensive elements in one smooth strike.
The freshly-added stage is called Forbidden Fortune. The dynamic level features the ruins of an old pirate ship, with shattered bones scattered across the top deck, and mountains of gold found below as combatants smash through to the hull to find not only the hidden treasure, but a slew of hidden traps – not to mention, a giant Kraken guarding the stolen loot. As the Kraken becomes enraged, the ships rocks and shudders, and as the damage spreads to the armoury, sparks begin to fly, including gunpowder that catches fire, shooting violent flames over the scene of the fight.
Check out the trailer of all of this right below and, if you happen to be in Cologne for Gamescom, Dead Or Alive 6 can be found in the Deep Silver and Friends booth in Hall 9, #B011-C010 at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, between the 21st and 25th August.
Dead Or Alive 6 is currently in development for the PS4, Xbox One, and Steam and is slated for an Early 2019 release. Keep an eye on Rice Digital in the future for more coverage of this game.
