Koei Tecmo has announced a couple more characters coming to Dead or Alive 6. First off are two returning characters, the Ba Ji Quan user Kokoro and the luchadora, La Mariposa. In addition to the returning characters, a new addition was announced as well. NiCO is an 18 year old scientist and practitioner of Pencak Silat. She is voiced by Sumire Uesaka, known for voicing characters such as Anastasia from The iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls, Sanae Dekomori from Love, Chunibyou & Other Delusions, and Chisato Shirasagi from BanG Dream! Girls Band Party.
Koei Tecmo describes NiCO as follows:
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.
You can check out their reveal trailer below.
Also, if you’re interested, Koei Tecmo didn’t waste any time trying to create merchandise for the new character. An oppai mouse pad for NiCO has been developed and will be included in the Strongest Package Limited Edition for Dead or Alive 6, available in Japan. You can check out the mouse pad below.
Dead or Alive 6 is set to launch on February 15, 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
