Getting the gang back together
The ongoing roster reveal for Koei Tecmo’s Dead or Alive 6 is hardly being met with gasps of amazement. Aside from one or two newcomers, it’s been pretty much business as usual. Take, for example, these latest character announcements.
Both Eliot and Brad Wong have been confirmed for the sixth iteration of the fast-paced fighting franchise. Child-face Eliot made his debut in DoA 4, as the apprentice of fellow roster member Gen Fu. The youngest of the game’s characters at the time, the British teen has worked hard to master the art of Xingyi Quan, and is quite the unstoppable force, despite having barely reached his twenties.
Wine aficionado Brad Wong made his debut back in DoA 3, where he quickly established himself as a devastating master of “drunken kung-fu” Zui Quan. Totally method in his abilities, Wong can often be found propping up local bars and harassing female members of the DoA cast, a habit that often finds him stumbling into fisticuffs.
So, no surprises here, two more regulars are ready for a ruck once more. No doubt they’ll be joined by more familiar faces by the time Dead or Alive 6 launches, February 15, on PS4, PC and Xbox One.
