Koei Tecmo announced two more characters for the roster of Dead or Alive 6, including the well-known antagonist, Rig. Coming alongside him is Diego, who is making his debut into the Dead or Alive franchise in this title. Both combatants will be able to be tried out at EVO (Evolution Championship Series) 2018 in the first consumer playable build of Dead or Alive 6. This will be available August 3rd and 4th at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
Known as “The Uncrowned Street Hero,” Diego makes his DOA debut boasting the raw and brutal skills of a street fighter, utilizing everything from headbutts to tackles in taking down opponents. This gritty fighter grew up in the back alleys of New York, earning money to support his ailing mother by competing in many street matches. Long rumored to be the strongest fighter in his neighborhood, he is seen by many locals as a hero as he utilizes his experience brawling in confined quarters to impact fights with a set of strong-style moves.
Joining Diego is returning taekwondo master Rig, who boasts the “Kicks of Truth and Deceit.” Rig, who originally debuted in Dead or Alive 5, is a former oil platform worker whose kick-heavy style has evolved to incorporate more acrobatic maneuvers. To kick-off their confrontation in DOA6, the formidable brawler Rig challenges Diego in a New York alley, and the two decide the time for conversation is over; it’s time to fight!
