Today, following the Dead or Alive tournament at EVO 2018, Team Ninja had a tease to deliver via Twitter.
The developer shared the silhouettes of two Dead or Alive 6 characters that are set to be revealed at Gamescom 2018 at the end of August. You can see it at the bottom of the post.
I’m not sure if this was intended to be subtle, but it really isn’t, as the hairstyles definitely give both characters away. The one on the left is evidently Leifang and the one on the right is Hitomi (easy to recognize due to the bangs on the sides of her forehead). Interestingly, Hitomi appears to be wearing a full Karate gi, which is certainly appropriate to her fighting style.
These two characters will add to those who have already been announced, Kasumi, Helena, Hayate, Hayabusa, Jann Lee, Zack, and the latest pair revealed just a couple days ago, Diego and Rig.
Dead or Alive 6 has been revealed just before E3 and is coming in early 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. You can also check out some recent gameplay, and read how the developers are targeting 60 FPS but won’t include the new girls from Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation.
You can already pre-order it on Amazon.
