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.
