Fans online we very quick to point out that based on the features and the stances, the two characters are longtime series standouts Leifang and Hitomi. It shouldn't come as any surprise to fans that while the company is working to show off new characters on the roster, that a lot of your favorites will be returning to Dead or Alive 6. We don't really have much else to add here as there isn't a lot to say about either character until we get the official reveal later this month, but it's nice to know we're getting some familiar faces who also happen to be fan favorites.
