Two previously unannounced characters have been revealed for Dead or Alive 6. Their names are Rig and Diego.

Fans of the Dead or Alive series are sure to recognize Rig. His debut in the series was Dead or Alive 5.

During the events of Dead or Alive 5, Rig appeared as one of the game's main antagonists. He is a and oil platform worker and practitioner Taekwondo. He does not actually know his real name.

Immediately into the trailer, we can see Rig starting trouble with someone we've never seen before. This newcomer to the series is Diego.

Apparently Diego started participating in street matches. He intends to earn money this way in order to support his ailing mother. This has given him the title of New York's "uncrowned street hero."

It's demonstrated that Diego has a very "raw" fighting style. Many of his attacks involve actions such as headbutting and curb stomping the opponent's head.
