Koei Tecmo has unveiled another two fighters for Dead or Alive 6's ever-swelling roster, with newcomer Diego and returning brawler Rig stepping into the ring.

Both characters will be strutting their stuff at Evo in Las Vegas this weekend, where Dead or Alive 6 will debut its first playable consumer build.

Diego is known as 'The Uncrowned Street Hero,' having grown up in the rough back alleys of New York City while competing for cash to help is ill mother. As a result of his gritty surroundings, Diego has developed a rough-and-ready fighting style that involves meaty headbutts and tackles.

Meanwhile, ex-oil platform worker Rig makes a return from Dead or Alive 5, once again in possession of the 'Kicks of Truth and Deceit.' Funnily enough, his fighting style revolves around, yep, kicks. 

Dead or Alive 6 is currently in development for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One with a targeted launch window of early 2019. 

Developer Team Ninja is making some changes this time around, however, so don't expect it to be super sexy.
