Who will be the first two fighters offered in Tecmo and Team Ninja’s Dead Or Alive 6? They’ll be familiar to fans of SNK, or the King of Fighters series…who are they?
They are Mai Shiranui and Kula Diamond. Mai has her fans (literally) and she can use them quiet effectively in battle. Kula Diamond is what would happen if Disney’s Elsa turned evil and also had an interest in fighting tournaments.
Mai Shiranui, known to KING OF FIGHTERS fans as “The Alluring Ninja,” is a kunoichi (female ninja) and the successor of the Shiranui style ninjutsu. The nimble fighter uses large fans as weapons, generating flames from attacks as she shows no mercy on opponents mesmerized by her flashy attire.
Joining Mai in DEAD OR ALIVE 6 is “The Ice Doll,” Kula Diamond. Diamond favors quick strikes and unexpected transitions to special attacks through the use of cancels. She has the power to utilize ice in her assaults, taking advantage of frozen opponents thanks to her ability to instantly freeze water particles in mid-air. A modified human created by the NESTS organization, Diamond’s conception has come with complications – including an odd addiction to candy and the fact that she appears much younger than her actual age.
Mai Shiranui and Kula Diamond are part of Dead or Alive 6’s Season Pass 1. You can walk in and get them if you own that pass, but if not, they’re available individually at $7.99 each. Dress them up with $2.99 costume packs, or get all the costumes for $15.99. Dead Or Alive 6 is available now for Playstation 4, XBox One and PC.
