The news is already coming in thick and fast from this month’s Gamescom and nobody is safe! Dead or Alive 6 developer Koei Temco has revealed two series mainstays Hitomi and Leifang will be returning, with a look the amazing new pirate-themed stage, Forbidden Fortune, complete with Kraken tentacles and golden treasures.
In Koei Temco latest trailer the graphics look amazing, the fights kinetic and intense, but the thing I’m most impressed with is the politeness of it all. Leifang and Hitomi greet each other like friends about to spar and most impressively and surprisingly of all the two fighters are dressed in a manner befitting two people about to kick the crap out of each other, rather than Dead or Alive’s usual costuming style of soft-core tit-illation.
The polite fighters have now been confirmed to appear in 2019’s iteration of the franchise. Hitomi: The Fist Of Innocence first appearing in Dead or Alive 3, replacing Ein as the regular karate martial artist in the character roster, and Leifang: T’ai Chi Ch’uan Prodigy debuted in the first ever Dead or Alive.
Check out the trailer below for yourself ahead of the Early 2019 release. Let’s hope the ladies don’t end up on Zack Island again!
