Famitsu has dropped the game play trailer for Tamaki for Dead or Alive 6.
Tamaki is a character from the spin off title Dead or Alive: Xtreme Venus Vacation. Tamaki’s back story is as follows according to the DOA Fandom wiki:
She had initially been a swimsuit model, although she eventually changed careers to become a fashion designer. She also became acquainted with Helena and DOATEC as well, even designing two costumes modeled after J-Pop Idols for an event at DOATEC. Through unknown means, she learned about the Venus Islands, and in particular the local Venus Festival, and desiring to “spread her wings” in an otherwise hectic life, she decided to arrive at the island to participate.
The trailer shows off the Aikido inspiration that’s present in her move set. Tamaki has a built in tick grab with 6P that performs an Aikido trip on the opponent. The kick follow up from 6P also helps to cover opponents that want to duck to avoid the grab. The trailer also shows that she has a hit-grab slide and airborne grabs in her arsenal.
