Koei Tecmo has announced the next DLC character for the latest entry in fighting franchise Dead or Alive 6, and its fiend-hunter Rachel, star of the popular Ninja Gaiden series. No release date was revealed, but the leather-bound ass-kicker is expected to arrive before the year is out.
Rachel's return represents the latest in a series of characters - many of whom were base roster members or paid DLC in Dead or Alive 5's revisions - making their return as DLC in Dead or Alive 6. Other characters guilty of this include Nyotengu (was paid DLC in DoA 5, now a pre-order bonus in DoA 6), and KoF's Mai Shranui, (was paid DLC in DoA 5, and is now paid DLC againin DoA 6).
Dead or Alive 6, a game mostly unchanged from its 2012 predecessor, continues to set a new standard of repetition with its character and costume DLC. That's without making mention of a third $80 season pass, announced within just 10 months of the game's initial launch. DoA gonna DoA, I guess.
