Kula's idle animation seems a little... frozen

Dead or Alive 6's first batch of crossover DLC is coming in just a few days in the form of the King of Fighters' Mai Shiranui and Kula Diamond, but you won't need to wait until Tuesday to see them fully in action.

Koei Tecmo teamed up with Japanese publisher Dengeki Online to showcase around an hour of Mai and Kula in the 3D fighter including their move sets, costume / accessory choices and more.

After giving both of the ladies brief character introductions, the group shows off how the different costumes will look on Mai and Kula from their alternate colors to pirate, nurse and maid outfits as well because this is still DOA after all.

Most of the stream is spent going over both characters complete move lists and some combos beginning with Mai, so we get a good chance to see how the pair — and specifically Kula — have been adapted to DOA6 and a 3D engine.

Unfortunately, the stream was entirely conducted in Japanese with no official English translations, so you'll either need to be fluent in the language or toss on the auto-generated Google translations to get a sense of what's going on in the discussions.

Mai and Kula will hit the stage in Dead or Alive 6 on June 18 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. An arcade version of the game was also discussed with locations tests hitting Japan on the same day as the new DLC.
