Team NINJA Bolsters Hard-Hitting Roster, Introducing Two New Playable DEAD OR ALIVE 6 Characters at Evo 2018
KOEI TECMO Europe announced today the addition of two more fighters to the DEAD OR ALIVE 6 roster; including returning antagonist Rig, as well as Diego — a fascinating and forceful new character to the DOA Universe. Both combatants will be showcased in the first consumer playable build of DEAD OR ALIVE 6 at the Evolution Championship Series (Evo) 2018 inside the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, on the 3rd-4th August 2018.
“The Uncrowned Street Hero,” Diego
Known as “The Uncrowned Street Hero,” Diego makes his DOA debut; boasting the raw and brutal skills of a street fighter; utilising everything from headbutts to tackles in taking down opponents. This gritty fighter grew up in the back alleys of New York; earning money to support his ailing mother by competing in many street matches. Long rumoured to be the strongest fighter in his neighbourhood; he is seen by many locals as a hero as he utilises his experience brawling in confined quarters to impact fights with a set of strong-style moves.
Taekwondo Master Rig
Joining Diego is returning taekwondo master Rig, who boasts the “Kicks of Truth and Deceit.” Rig, who originally debuted in DEAD OR ALIVE 5, is a former oil platform worker whose kick-heavy style has evolved to incorporate more acrobatic manoeuvres. To kick-off their confrontation in DOA6; the formidable brawler Rig challenges Diego in a New York alley; and the two decide the time for conversation is over; it’s time to fight!
Diego and Rig join the six playable characters previously announced (Helena Douglas, Hayate, Ryu Hayabusa, Zack, Kasumi, and Jann Lee); as fans in attendance at Evo will be able to test out the latest build of the game while winning exclusive swag; including DOA6 shirts, tote bags, and lanyards.
To celebrate the reveal of this fascinating new character, KOEI TECMO Europe released a reveal trailer showcasing the iconic meeting between Diego and Rig, alongside a selection of new assets showing the Training Mode for the first time!
