Today, three more characters were revealed for Koei Tecmo‘s upcoming fighting game, DEAD OR ALIVE 6. The most interesting among these three is the brand new character named NiCO, She is, rather surprisingly, an 18-year-old evil scientist, but she is clearly the eccentric-type rather than the threatening-type. She fights using Pencak Silat, which is described as a style of Southeast Asian martial arts and she can also shoot plasma from her rings.
NiCO may end up being one of my favourite DOA characters of all time. The reason I say that is because there are a number of things about her that I like. Firstly, she is voiced by Sumire Uesaka, who I think has a really nice voice. Secondly, she looks similar to Marie Rose, who as you may know, I am already a big fan of. Thirdly, I’ve always had a thing for girls with crazy-coloured hair and I think girls with bobs look great, so I simply adore her hairdo.. She does wear glasses, which is not something I’m into, but I’m sure you’ll be able to remove them quite easily in the game.
Getting back to the point about NiCO resembling Marie Rose, I do wonder if the two of them are connected in some way. If that is the case, I guess the story mode in DEAD OR ALIVE 6 will shed light on this matter.
DEAD OR ALIVE 6 is due out on February 14 next year, which is not so far away now. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
