Two new characters join the Dead or Alive 6 roster. Nyotengu and Phase 4 have been officially unveiled by Team Ninja this morning, and they will be joining the fight as DLC.

From the looks of it, Nyotengu will be a bonus character for those who pre-order the physical or digital version of the game. Phase 4 will come included with the Digital Deluxe version of Dead or Alive 6, along with an additional costume for Kasumi, a Deluxe costume set of 25 outfits, and 3 music tracks.

A clone of Kasumi, Phase 4 is a man-made weapon who still holds the memories and personality of the fighter she was replicated from. Here codename is "Kasumi Alpha Phase 4," and the "Phase 4" part is a reference to the final stage of the clone weapon production of M.I.S.T.'s Project Alpha.

Nyotengu is a legendary being whose beauty has been spoken about throughout Japan over many generations. Her reason for coming down to the human realm to fight is simply to appease her boredom, and rumors of Ryu Hayabusa — the human who defeated Bankotsubo — were what piqued her interest in the first place.

Not much personal data is known about Phase 4 and Nyotengu. Phase 4's fighting style is unknown, though it is derived from Kasumi’s Mugen Tenshin Ninjutsu and includes numerous improvements. Nyotengu fights using Manjū, which sees her utilize powerful strikes and aerial attacks with the help of her large wings.

Team Ninja has also released a trailer showcasing the various combat mechanics and features in Dead or Alive 6. In it, we see demonstrations of game mechanics such as Break Blow and Fatal Rush, a quick glimpse at story mode, and more.

This trailer also provides a look at "DOA Central," which allows you to customize your character with various costumes and cosmetic changes.

Dead or Alive 6 is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 1st.
