Team Ninja and Koei Tecmo are teasing the reveal of Hitomi and Leifang in the run-up to Gamescom later this month.

Following the Dead or Alive 5: Last Round tournament at EVO 2018, Team Ninja and Koei Tecmo have teased the addition of Leifang and Hitomi to the roster, indicating the reveal will be made at Gamescom, which kicks off on August 20.

The tease came in the form of a tweet from the official Dead or Alive 6 Tournament Executive Committee Twitter account.

The characters appeared as silhouettes in the tweet, and while they weren’t named, their identities are clear to fans of the series.

Dead or Alive 6 was announced back in June, and this time around, the devs will be toning down the sexuality traditionally associated with the series, opting to focus more on practical costume designs and natural body physics.

As well as Hitomi and Leifang, Taekwondo master Rig will also be returning in the next instalment, along with new addition Diego.

Dead or Alive 6 is set to launch in early 2019 on PC, PS4, Xbox One.
