Dead or Alive 6 adds some muscle to its roster

Dead or Alive 6

We now have another slew of character announcements for Dead or Alive 6; DoA veterans Bass and Tina return to the ring, alongside Mila, the MMA fighter who made her debut in Dead or Alive 5. Together they form “Team Muscle,” and they are bringing a new stage with them too, a giant wrestling ring fitted with electrified ropes. Check out the new trailer for Team Muscle, along with a press release from Koei Tecmo and some screenshots:

KOEI TECMO America is excited to announce the return of three hard-hitting fighters – Bass, Tina, and Mila – to DEAD OR ALIVE 6 as they help introduce an all-new professional wrestling organization into the game thanks to a storyline as electrifying as the ring ropes.

Known as “The King of the Ring,” Bass is a seasoned professional wrestler known for his destructive power and versatile throwing techniques. He’s also the doting father of Tina, “The Superstar of a Thousand Dreams.” And while Tina flashes some of the same versatile throws as her father; including an explosive new slam added to her repertoire, she is also proficient in strikes as Bass trains her to become the top wrestler in the world.

But Tina isn’t the only female ready to fight in DEAD OR ALIVE 6; as a professional wrestling fan, Mila has also been added to the lineup. Nicknamed “The Hot-Blooded Champ,” Mila is a mixed-martial artist known for winning titles as a result of tackling techniques and her expertise in the ground-and-pound game that she hopes will prove fruitful in her quest to ultimately takedown her longtime rival, Bass.

All three characters are instrumental to DEAD OR ALIVE 6’s new wrestling stage “THE MUSCLE.” As an introduction to their new fighting ring, the father-daughter duo of Bass and Tina gather reporters inside an arena to unveil their new professional wrestling organization, also known as The Muscle. Inside the arena stage, not only will the action be fast and fierce, but the ring ropes surge with electrical current while the steel pillars surrounding the squared-circle bellow fire at warry brawlers. Who has what it takes to bring home the championship?

Dead or Alive 6 hits stores on Feb. 15, 2019, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC via Steam, and you can preorder now.
