DRUNKEN FIGHTER AND MARTIAL ARTS NOMAD BOOST DEAD OR ALIVE 6’s ROSTER
Returning Favourites Brad Wong and Eliot Added to an Already Stacked Lineup of Competitors
Hertfordshire, 13th December 2018 – KOEI TECMO Europe and TEAM Ninja are excited to announce the addition of two returning fan favourites to the DEAD OR ALIVE 6 roster: Brad Wong and Eliot. The two fighters bolster the announced line-up to 24 playable characters at launch.
Brad Wong, known as “The Drunken Fighter,” is a master of Zui Ba Xian Quan. He uses his drunken style to confuse opponents while striking adversaries from unusual stances ranging from hand-standing and facing backwards to laying down on the ground. Wong spent years training in the remote mountains of China, until his master ordered him to begin a journey in search of a legendary liquor. After entering DOA’s third and fourth tournaments, he skipped the fifth; but the drunken boxer returns in DEAD OR ALIVE 6, looking to take out all comers.
Joining Wong in DEAD OR ALIVE 6 is the traveling martial arts scholar, Eliot. Known as “The Apprentice of the Iron Fist,” Eliot launches at opponents with a furious volley of consecutive Xingyi Quan attacks thanks to techniques learned from his master, Gen Fu. After participating in the fourth tournament, Eliot set off on a journey of self-discovery and martial arts training alongside Brad Wong, where Master Fu permitted Eliot to learn the legendary style of Xinyi Liuhe Quan. Eliot enters the sixth DOA tournament with the improved skill and confidence of a true first-rate martial artist.
TEAM Ninja today released a new highlight video showcasing the two fighters, and they can be seen punching and kicking in the new battle arena entitled “UNFORGETTABLE.” The gallery-like stage is comprised of a number of nostalgic locations from previous DOA titles, including their fully-operational Danger Zones.
DEAD OR ALIVE 6 is currently in development for the PlayStation®4 Computer Entertainment System, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and digitally on Windows PC via Steam®.
Pre-orders across all systems are now underway; those who pre-order DEAD OR ALIVE 6 physically at GAME, or select retailers through Centresoft, are able to get their hands on a Day One Steelbook Edition of the game, another playable character for their roster, Nyotengu, and an alternative costume for Kasumi while stocks last.
