Tecmo Koei revealed a new fighter for their upcoming Dead or Alive 6 with the arrival of NiCo. They also showcase in the trailer the return of Kokora and La Mariposa (Lisa).
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.
