In an announcement today, Koei Tecmo has revealed two more characters – Diego and Rig – that will be making their DEAD OR ALIVE 6 roster debut during the EVO 2018 event this weekend at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

During their announcement made today, Koei Tecmo has revealed that they have added two more characters to the ever-growing list of fighters that will be participating in the next Dead or Alive tournament. Among these two new fighters is returning antagonist Rig who will once more punch, plow, and slam his way through his opponents.

Alongside the announcement of Rig comes an entirely new fighter known as Diego “The Uncrowned Street Hero” of the DEAD OR ALIVE universe. With his fascinating and brutal street fighting skills, Diego will headbutt, tackle, and slam his opponents on his way to victory in order to be seen as the hero of New York, where he grew up in their dank and fight-ridden back alleys.

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.

Diego and Rig join the list of fighters already announced such as franchise favorites Helena Douglas, Hayate, Ryu Hayabusa, Zack, Kasumi, and Jann Lee. Fans that have a chance to attend EVO will be able to test the latest build of the game while also having a chance to win some exclusive swag ranging from DEAD OR ALIVE 6 shirts, tote bags, and even lanyards.

DEAD OR ALIVE 6 is currently in development for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and is slated for release in Early 2019.
