Koei Tecmo announced today that a trio of older characters will be returning to the join the roster in Dead or Alive 6, the much-anticipated fighting game with very attractive “visuals.”
They announced the return of Bass, Tina, and Mila in a press release accompanied by a trailer. Their press release is here:
“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.”
And a new level called “The Muscle” has been announced. The map is themed as a professional wrestling organization’s arena which matches the return of the characters. So they’re all tied together in a way. To add some flare, the ropes are powered by electricity. And there are flaming pillars to boot.
There was a small teaser released earlier this week which may have had fans speculating other characters rather than these, but with Tecmo’s press release, this should calm some nerves. I expect more news about Dead or Alive 6 coming next week as multiple trailers are now being released alongside some screenshots.
Nytotengu will also be a pre-order goodie and Phase 4 will come with the Digital Deluxe edition of DOA6. There will also be a special event hosted called the Dead or Alive Festival 2018 which takes place next month dedicated to the game.
DOA6 rolls out on February 15th, 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
