DOA6 Kokoro, Lisa and NiCO Revealed


Kokoro, Lisa 'La Mariposa' Hamilton and new female character, NiCO, along with three new stages were announced at Team NINJA's 2018 Dead or Alive Festival. The studio released two trailers at the event, both with their own story sequences and gameplay demonstrations. Additionally, Team NINJA has updated their official Japanese website with new character biographies and stages.

The first reveal trailer opens outside of the 'DOA Colosseum' with Kokoro handing over a photograph to Helena of the sisters together with their father Fame Douglas. Kokoro tells Helena that NiCO gave her the old photograph, and Helena says she has no idea who NiCO is and that it wasn't NiCO's place to interfere. Kokoro's life has been shrouded by family secrets, and Helena is now forced into a corner to reveal more to her sister.

While the Miyabi stage does not bluntly explain its placement in the story, this old tea-town is the first place we see Kokoro fight in DOA6. She takes her frustrations out on Helena using a Heichu mid-kick, and a new air grab after her 7K launch that will make opponents bounce off the ground for a follow up attack. There are a few obstacles to knock your foe through at Miyabi, and Kokoro's flashy special combo and break blow finish her demo.

Lisa is shown in next clip and makes an entrance on Mila and Tina's gym training. Tina asks Lisa if she is better now, and the scene transitions to the 'Team Muscle' stage and Lisa transforms into La Mariposa! She doesn't have anything to say about Hayate yet, she just wants to get into the ring and wrestle as a Luchador!

Even though some of Lisa's opening moves are recycled from DOA5, Team NINJA's mastery of animation has always been mind blowing with this character and her attacks continue to look incredibly quick and fluid. The special combo and new throws add to the sheer quality of La Mariposa's move list. In this short preview Team NINJA was able to emphasize the importance of using many different types of throws (Air, BT Air, Ground) when using a grappling character like Lisa.

NiCO's reveal trailer begins outside of the trashed Zack Isand, and the shady Scientist is working on a prototype Raidou that Christie wants to know more about. The next scene takes place inside of the 'Zero' Mist research facility (that is strongly hinted by Team NINJA to be on Zack Island) and NiCO continues to ignore Christie's questions.

Victor Donovan's Scientist is full of insane lightning strikes and her fighting style is based off of Pencak Silat. NiCO has plenty of awesome throws and can teleport behind her opponent for guaranteed damage. She also looks to have a pretty evasive game, not just with her teleport, but also lows and range possibilities.

Team NINJA hit a lot of good notes at the Dead or Alive Festival. The community was treated to a great DOA5 tournament, three new character reveals and even a custom costume mode. With this event Team NINJA has found a way to please all of their players, and FSD will continue to inform you on anything else that may have emerged from the public demo at DOA Festival.

Don't know what the ugly thumbnail image in the video is about...

Additional story theories:

- I think that Raidou is an example of a character that will show up in story, but not in the game as a playable character. His prototype looks a lot earlier than what they showed us for DOA5 Raidou. So either they plan on making super soldiers for war, or this is result of the character we got in DOA5.

- DOA6 story is partially based off of the DOA movie. NiCO is the female version of Weatherbee (Donovan's Scientist) and the research facility is on a tropical island.
Is.....is that really true?

What exactly did you call? She doesn't really resemble anyone from Kenichi. BTW thanks for reminding me about that show. Still made it only got 2 seasons. Then again the manga near the end got really dumb and felt rushed.
I literally mentioned "Pencak silat" as the only fighting style that is really missing and would make sense, and Diego is ~ berserker, ofcourse they wouldn't make carbon copies, though that's what i wrote, it was an exaggeration, we all know, copyrights, still hope it's true Pencak silat with the electric gimmicks on top only

What they showed looks nothing like Pencak Silat.

Her abilities and such look cool but damn... it's really like they just went through some stock anime girl looks and was like "ah yes, blue haired anime chick, that's the one." no originality whatsoever if im being honest. And while it's true diego is different and has a new look, his style is absolutely bland. Good thing Kokoro and Lisa look amazing, excited for them.

When I saw the thumbnail of the video I assumed she was a Marie Rose reskin and she may as well be without the spark effect and teleportation. Her fighting school and personality is cool, but they ruined it by making her 18, especially when her voice acting sounds more mature. She looks stupid. A mature lab scientist would have been cool, instead it looks like Marie Rose cosplaying as a lab scientist. And for people defending this, you really have to consider the legacy of these characters. They forever change the lore of DOA and water it down to trash with every instalment.

They literally brought out Diego for this game which was Western fan targeted as you can get. I’m fine with the second new face being Japanese fan targeted. At least the character looks like something out of RailDex with the lightning teleports and science gimmick
Diego is trash too. I dont care what country a character is targeted to, so long as its original. And this aint it.

Nico seems decent but really slow. The new characters this time seem very underwhelming. SC6 has better new characters so far than DOA 6. DOA 6 has been doing better with returning characters than new ones. all the OGs look good, but these new characters look generic.

Also, why did they go with another loli when they have Marie Rose? We now have three super short girls. Thank god Lisa is back. I wonder if this is it? I can't think of anyone on the female side missing besides Momoiji and Rachel. For the guys, it's Genfu, Eliot, and Brad Wong.
