Last last month, we learned that Tamaki, one of the characters original to Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation, would be making her way into Dead or Alive 6 as a crossover DLC fighter. Koei Tecmo revealed more info today via Famitsu that shows off more of her looks and moves via screenshots and video.

An adult woman who’s a successful fashion designer and model. Her natural talent also extends to aikido, which she began learning as a form of self-protection, but managed to learn to a level of mastery. One day, she receives an invitation to the DOA tournament, the festival of “fighting venuses”. Thinking of how she’ll be able to encounter new types of “beauty” there, Tamaki decides to join with a teasing smile on her face.

Martial Arts: Aikido

Using various holds and body movements, Tamaki uses a practical form of aikido that also adds in atemi attacks in Dead or Alive 6. With her flexible and beautiful body movements, she neutralizes opponents’ attacks.

Famitsu has actually posted a 2:46 minute long video that shows off how Tamaki plays, which you can watch below:

Tamaki comes with a whole lot of costumes, some of which are designed after ones she had in Venus Vacation. She can wear glasses like all other characters, but it seems she can’t change her hair color yet.

Here’s a whole gallery of costume screenshots below:

Finally, here’s her move list (in Japanese) below:

Dead or Alive 6 is available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. In case you missed it, yesterday Koei Tecmo responded to complaints about needing to pay for hair color changes.
