Dead Or Alive 6 is the next installment in the long-running fighting franchise.

Team NINJA revealed the first details on the Dead Or Alive 6 digital pre-order bonuses. PS4 owners who take advantage of pre-order sales will score a unique DOA6 theme as well as obtaining “The Female Tengu” Nyotengu as a playable character. Xbox One gamers who pre-order the title will also be able to download Nyotengu to their roster on top of receiving a pre-order bonus costume for the legendary Ryu Hayabusa.

A special Early Purchase Bonus program for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners was also announced, as gamers who digitally purchase DOA6 by March 14, 2019, will receive a bonus costume for one of the game’s most popular characters, Kasumi. Gamers who enter the Early Purchase Bonus program on Steam will collect the Kasumi costume as well as Nyotengu as a downloadable character.


KOEI TECMO and Team NINJA announced the first look at NiCO, the second original character to make her debut in the hotly-anticipated fighter, Dead Or Alive 6. The new character was on display for the first time this past weekend inside the DEAD OR ALIVE Festival in Tokyo, a fan-focused event that featured live demos, cosplay, and tournament action. But it was the NiCO reveal that stole the show thanks to the character’s breakneck speed and powerful plasma attacks. 

NiCO, known as “The Lightning Technomancer” is a practitioner of Pencak Silat, a historic martial art of Southeast Asia. The frenetic fighter employs powerful plasma discharges in her attacks, boosting her Pencak Silat strikes to another level, while at the same time using her EMF Rings to move at ultrahigh rates of speed. But that’s not all; as NiCO is also a genius scientist entrusted with Donovan’s secret M.I.S.T. development project. Despite her youthful appearance, she provides a genuine threat to the ninjas with her sharp, analytical mind and her natural sense for martial arts.

Joining NiCO in Dead Or Alive 6 is the latest reveal is Helena’s half-sister, Kokoro. A master of Ba Ji Quan, Kokoro uses a combination of elbow and palm thrusts to compliment an array of throws aimed at destroying her opponent’s balance. Graceful, yet powerful, Kokoro’s fighting style incorporates the hard and soft elements that represent the spirit she refines through her maiko training.

Also returning to action is La Mariposa, a luchadora who excels at aerial attacks and is known as “The Immortal Butterfly”. Under the mask, the professional wrestler is really Lisa Hamilton – a former DOATEC researcher who at one time conducted experiments on the ninja Hayate. And although it was rumored that she had retired after the 5th Tournament, La Mariposa is back, deadlier than ever. 

The NiCO reveal also showcased two new stages for Dead Or Alive 6, including ZERO, a research facility built by M.I.S.T. highlighted by shattered glass and freefalls, not to be outdone by MIYABI, a quiet Japanese town surrounded by bamboo. Break through the thicket and watch as fighters crash down into a secluded spot known as The Hidden Garden, adding a little atmospheric magic to the fight.

In addition, Team NINJA released the first images of the all-new DOA CENTRAL. Here, gamers will be able to customize their characters before each fight, including changing costumes, hairstyles, and even glasses.

In addition, Team NINJA unveiled a Digital Deluxe edition of the game for the PS4, Xbox One, and Steam that will include a set of 25 extra costumes, three bonus musical tracks, a DDX exclusive Kasumi costume, and an exceptional character added to the lineup, the formidable Kasumi clone, Phase 4.
