Kayane, a well-known competitive player in the FGC, conducted an interview with Team NINJA's Yohei Shimbori the future of DOA6 at Koch Media in Paris, France. In this article, Shimbori touches on several topics such as eSports involvement, community feedback, possible DLC characters, and more. Here are some tidbits from the article.
On DOA6's "eSports Mode" (which is similar to DOA5's Exhibition Mode):
K. : I’ve seen in the game that you have an Esport mode. Can you tell me more about it ?
Y. S. : So in Esport tournaments, if you pause the game, you generally automatically lose the round. So in this mode, we disabled the menu button to avoid any accidents and you need to press the menu button much longer if you want it to really pop up. This is the first step. We’ll analyze over time what Esport requires and what sets...
Team NINJA keeps fresh content coming with a new electrifying trailer that breaks down the gameplay in Dead or Alive 6 beautifully, and explains all kinds of exciting new features to the game. At the beginning of the trailer Team NINJA mentions that DOA5 has a lifetime figure of 12 million digital downloads. If you want to know why DOA6 is coming out this quick, look no further than the success of DOA5 and the relationship between Team NINJA and the fighters that played it.
The gameplay and feature mashup in this trailer is one of the most intense and enjoyable trailers Team NINJA has ever made. With every kick, punch and expression that is thrown your way, you will want more and you'll get more! Even the triangle system tutorial bits were filled to the brim with the finest and most polished gameplay yet.
You can see a lot of polish in this trailer in comparison to some of the previous ones, and it only takes a few clips to see that the hit...

After being teased months ago as extra characters for Dead or Alive 6, Nyo-Tengu and Phase 4 finally have an official trailer from Team NINJA that reveals their designs and some new moves and changes as well.
The trailer begins with Ryu Hayabusa practicing in Miyabi with his trusty Dragon Sword. Nyo stalks Hayabusa, fully aware that he slayed Bankotsubo and challenges him to a fight! Her motives are unclear, but it seems like she looks to avenge Bankotsubo, and is fascinated that Hayabusa can defeat something as powerful as a Tengu.
As soon as the fight starts you see Tengu open up with the classic P+K followed up by her 6T with a brand new throw extension. Hayabusa retaliates with some awesome Ninpo moves that Shimbori has showed us in demonstrations before, and his...
Team NINJA has announced that Dead or Alive 6 has been delayed from February 15th to March 1st this year. This means that Winter Brawl: 3D Edition has been canceled as DOA6s premier tournament.
