ARE BRAD WONG AND ELIOT “DEAD OR ALIVE”?
DRINKING BUDDIES RETURN IN DEAD OR ALIVE 6
It wouldn’t be a Dead or Alive game without a drunken master of some sort. Enter one of the franchise’s vets making a return: Brad Wong! Dead or Alive 6 will be a game more focused on battle and technique, so having the drunken master return for the sixth entry of the franchise is a no-brainer. And when Brad is around, his keeper Eliot won’t be too far behind him. Despite new characters NiCO and Diego being announced, the rest of the roster is comprised of returning characters.
Eliot is the youngest fighter in the franchise and is practicing the style of Xingyi Quan; a style that relies on heavy blows and incredibly linear movements. The name of the game is to overwhelm the opponent with precise bursts of sheer power.
Brad Wong on the flip side is a master of Zui Quan; a style known for fluid movements and shifts in body weight. While the movements may imitate a drunk person’s staggering, the form requires practitioners to have incredibly strong joints.
Both fighters may be veterans, but they come with the new “Unforgettable” stage. Why is it unforgettable? Because it’s literally a miss-mash of hazards from every other stage of the franchise placed in one field.
Dead or Alive 6 is slated to release on February 15, 2019. Adding the new characters makes the roster look like this:
