After the grand finals of Dead or Alive 5: Last Round at Evo 2018, Team NINJA took the time to tease their fans with more characters for the upcoming Dead or Alive 6.
On stream, they showed a couple of character silhouettes for Dead or Alive 6. While these characters weren’t specifically named, they seem to pretty obviously indicate Hitomi and Lei Fang. Alongside the silhouettes, Team NINJA also gave a date: August 20, 2018.
The date seems to be when they’ll be revealing both characters, it also happens to be the day before Gamescom 2018. Team NINJA’s Tom Lee, who was on stream, confirmed that the team would be bringing Dead or Alive 6 to Gamescom, so it’s likely that Hitomi and Lei Fang may be playable then.
Gamescom 2018 will take place from August 21 to 25, 2018, at the Koelnmesse, Cologne, Germany.
