Team NINJA have revealed most of the wrestling characters in their latest Dead or Alive 6 trailer. This reveal not only shows us gameplay, but also gives us a good idea of what "Team Muscle" is up to now. Bass, Tina, Mila and a new wrestling ring stage have been added to Team NINJA's Official DOA6 website.
Tina and Bass open this video promoting their new wrestling team or faction called "Team Muscle." Bass seems very pleased with this, but perhaps he doesn't see Tina's intent to use this new team as promotion for her governor campaign? Mila is also back in the ring, and her fighting passion is exactly what Bass looked for in his only daughter.
Bass and Tina have an interesting relationship, and it would be great if the two characters were finally able to find a compromise in DOA6 after years of Tina not giving Bass the credit he deserves, and Bass not being accepting of Tina's life goals...
While details are scarce about the release date, it is currently known that the game will be running under SEGA All.Net P-Ras MULTI Version 3 for digital distribution. However, it might be using the current hardware, SEGA Nu. for development.
The Dead or Alive series has a long history with SEGA since its debut back in 1996. The first DOA game was the first and only third-party game to run under SEGA Model 2. DOA1 was ported to the Sega Saturn one year later and like other games that came from Model 2 such as Virtua Fighter 2 and Fighting Vipers, it relied on bitmap scaling since the Saturn was underpowered. The Saturn version of the first game was later ported to the Xbox as part of DOA Ultimate in 2004.
A few weeks ago the biggest Dead or Alive 6 trailer was released, and at TGS, Team NINJA explained what's going on with the game and announced the third chapter in their Dead or Alive Festival series. This week at FSD you are invited to explore content contributed by the offline players, artists and public demo information from Matt Ponton.
Offline Tournament News
Dead or Alive 5: Last Round will continue to be our standard while we wait for DOA6 to release this upcoming February. BigEGaming's NEC 19 is not only going to finish off the year, but will likely conclude DOA5's lifespan in offline majors. This week we look at the last offline tournament and rekindle the...
Team NINJA has been busy at TGS promoting Dead or Alive 6 with a fun exhibition, demonstration and public demo. After Tanii was victorious in the special Dead or Alive 6 tournament, Shimbori wrapped up their TGS show announcing the date to the next DOA Festival!
Matt Ponton's visit has granted the community an inside look at it all, and it appears that the Japanese audience is having a blast with DOA6. Air Gear proved that DOA6 can still be a combo heavy game with some wondrous Hitomi play during his appearance at the special tournament. Some excellent Hayabusa gameplay was showcased, and Tanii reminded us how effective Rig can be with a powerful tournament win. Dead or Alive 6 looks to perfect DOA5s excellent system, and the offline players are making that apparent already.
Team NINJA has succeeded with TGS in developing more public interest for our favorite fighting franchise. They will keep the hype train rolling come this November with...
Team NINJA is off to a good start with their TGS presentations! Day 1 introduced new players to DOA6 with an overview of everything currently announced, and the second day was an opportunity for Japanese players to discover and share DOA6 for the first time. @Matt Ponton is updating us live in Japan from the FSD Twitter with gameplay bits and move-lists, so be sure to follow us for the latest news.
Day 3 has concluded for the Koei Tecmo live TGS stream. Shimbori cosplays a stunning Bayman and conducted a very entertaining DOA6 Exhibition with other fighters on the show floor. We didn't see a whole lot of new stuff at the exhibition, but tomorrow you can enjoy a DOA6 tournament with a special trailer to conclude Team NINJA's TGS. If you want to share anything you've found at TGS please do so in the forum!
I think after NICO, it's time Team Ninja make "Different Styles" of female archetypes. I know they couldn't help themselves, but its time to see more personality in DOA imo. I'm good for the lolis and clones but we need a mix up.
After a while of SC struggle, I think I found my temporarily main in Seong Mi-Na. Unless I do better with someone else & until Hwang comes through. 1st female main since Sarah in VF and possibly 1st non-rushdown character main (Might be wrong). Gonna be fun.
