Koei Tecmo held the Dead or Alive Festival 2018 in Tokyo, Japan over the weekend, during which they revealed a brand new character joining the Dead or Alive 6 roster. Known simply as NiCO, the 18-year-old genius scientist showed off her electrifying moves in a brand new trailer.
From the trailer, it looks like NiCO specializes in deadly reversals and shocking plasma attacks. She combines the jolting plasma discharges with techniques from the historic Southeast Asian martial art Pencak Silat to devastating effect. The trailer also reveals two returning characters — Helena’s half-sister Kokoro and the sensational luchadora La Mariposa.

The sixth entry in the series will feature character customization for the first time. Although it won’t be as robust as offerings from other fighting game series, it’s great to finally be able to customize your favorite fighter to your liking.
Dead or Alive 6 launches on February 15th for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
