TWO SERIES VETS RETURN FOR DEAD OR ALIVE 6
After the announcement of Dead or Alive 6, series regulars Kasumi, Hayate, Ryu Hayabusa, Zack, Jann Lee, Helena Douglas and Rig made their returns. In an attempt to revitalize the franchise, Koei Tecmo debuted the new character of Diego. While a new character is a welcome addition to the cast, two more veterans will enter the tournament this time around.
Best friends Hitomi and Leifang will once again meet on the battlefield as both look to perfect their fighting styles. Hitomi uses heavy stiff Karate blows, while Leifang is a master of the ever flowing Kung-Fu.
Despite Hitomi and Leifang being returning characters, they were revealed on a new stage-Forbidden Fortune, which looks straight out of a Pirates of the Caribbean film.
