Dead or Alive 6 is seeing the inclusion of two King of Fighters series guest characters very soon. Mai Shiranui and Kula Diamond are joining the fight next week, and a trailer showcasing both aired at the Taipai Major fighting game tournament last weekend.

The official Dead or Alive 6 Twitter account has since shared a bit more footage of the two female fighters on their account today. We get another quick glimpse at both, but this time with quick details about some of the specifics of their gameplay.

The new clips teach us that Mai has the ability to effectively stop opponents who attempt side steps. Using her "Ryuuenbu" special move, she can cut her foe off before they maneuver around her.

"Mai is capable of stopping your side steps and side attacks with her Special Move 'Ryuuenbu,'" the tweet says. "Be careful when trying to side step her or else you may pay severely for it."

Kula, on the other hand, chills her opponents out using her Glacier Ridge. This can be done by executing her Fatal Rush and ending it with Break Blow.

Mai and Kula are set to join Dead or Alive 6 on June 18. For now, be sure to keep an eye on the DOA Twitter page as they'll likely be sharing more information about the two guest characters up until their launch.
