The two returning characters coming to Dead or Alive 6 are none other than the ‘Drunken Fighter’ Brad Wong as well as his apprentice the very young Eliot. The addition of these two means that 24 playable characters are available for you to play at launch. You can read up on more details about these characters posted below as revealed in a press release.
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 will be released for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One platforms on February 15th, 2019. If you pre-order the game now, you get a bonus costume for Kasumi as well as the character of Nyotengu as a playable fighter at launch.
