At this Saturday’s DOA Festival, Team NINJA had a number of announcements for Dead Or Alive 6.

Revealed at DOA Festival was new character NiCO, alongside veterans Kokoro and Lisa. The former, who is the 2nd and final new character being added to the game, is a Finnish genius who uses the Indonesian martial art Silat, as well as some lightning powered attacks.

Team NINJA showed a trailer for these characters that you can see below.

Alongside these characters, Team NINJA also revealed that Dead Or Alive 6 would have a character customization mode. This mode seems to be an expansion of the customization options in Dead Or Alive 5, allowing players to mix and match hairstyles, eye wear, and costumes. Some examples of the customization mode were shown on the DOA Festival stream. EpicPianoSolo over at r/DeadOrAlive was able to capture some of these:
