Many problems can be solved with more ninja girls, with the new Senran Kagura X Dead Or Alive 6 collaboration event. The event adds new characters from the Dead or Alive series, as well as a new costume. The event starts on September 17th.

The official Senran Kagura New Link Twitter also put out a promotional video ahead of the event, showing details about the collaboration. This will add Ayane and Kasumi, the faces of the Dead or Alive series, to the game.
It wouldn’t be a Dead or Alive without summer variations for both the girls. In addition to having their normal attire, swimsuit versions of Ayane and Kasumi are also available.
If you’re a fan of Dead or Alive 6 newcomer NiCO, you may have noticed her presence in the trailer, particularly for the Dead or Alive 6 segments. She’s not coming to the game, however.
That being said, the Silat master will be available as a costume for IMU instead. Her labcoat and wig will be usable for the character.
This isn’t the first time the two ninja-meets-fanservice franchises have collaborated, however. Last year, New Link collaborated with Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation. That event added fan-favorite characters Marie Rose and Honoka to the game.
The Senran Kagura X Dead or Alive collaboration starts on September 17th, after the game’s scheduled maintenance.
