Over the weekend at Dead or Alive Festival 2018, Koei Tecmo revealed a new fighter named NiCO being added to Dead Or Alive 6. Dubbed “The Lightning Technomancer”, she appears to be an 18-year-old scientist who has “plasma” attacks that work like lightning. She’s joined by two more familiar faces coming back to the series with Helena’s half-sister Kokoro, and the luchadora La Mariposa. Check out the trailer for all three as well as the finer details of who NiCO is below.
NiCO, known as “The Lightning Technomancer” is a practitioner of Pencak Silat, a historic martial art of Southeast Asia. The frenetic fighter employs powerful plasma discharges in her attacks, boosting her Pencak Silat strikes to another level, while at the same time using her EMF Rings to move at ultrahigh rates of speed. But that’s not all; as NiCO is also a genius scientist entrusted with Donovan’s secret M.I.S.T. development project. Despite her youthful appearance, she provides a genuine threat to the ninjas with her sharp, analytical mind and her natural sense for martial arts.
