DOA6 New Venus Character Could Skyrocket DOA6 Player Base
  • 2,211

Before Dead or Alive 6 was released, Team NINJA seemed pretty confident when they stated that a Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation character would not make an appearance in the 3D fighter, but with the rising success of Venus Vacation it comes as no surprise that our favorite developer would recant their statements in favor of expanding their DOA6 player base to a new audience this March. This surprise character is a part of the Season 4 Pass, and can be purchased in several different skews if the SPs are not your forte. With this story we explore why Team NINJA recanted their official statements that could result in being one of their biggest & best business decisions in years for the fighting series.

Contrary to popular belief, Team NINJA has definitely toned the sexual nature down as they have promised for the 3D fighter. Rachel's Fiend skin was controversially censored, there is an option to censor select oufits, and even their offering of bikinis are...

The official main CEO game lineup for 2020 has been revealed and features 15 games, but Dead or Alive 6 is absent from one of the biggest annual events on the East Coast and will not be returning for a second go. Alex Jebailey, CEO of CEO, stated last year that if the numbers were good and the community showed up that it would come back for 2020. CEO's attendance reached 87 entrants in 2019, and XcaliburBladeZ was declared the winner in a brilliant set against the now reigning DOA6 champion, Hoodless.

With the Dead or Alive 6 World Championship out of the way, Team NINJA's main focus is going to...

Some fighters train day and night exclusively for their opportunity at a big prize or payout in the FGC, but professional fighter, Hoodless will keep his momentum going regardless if it's the Dead or Alive 6 World Championship 'Main Event' in Japan hosted by Team NINJA or a side tournament located in a small suburb of Chicago. Despite a primitive recording of Top 4 coupled with low attendance, 'Frosty Fausting XII' is a prime example of hard work in the community, and this hard work will show itself to the tournament organizers and fighters from different communities.

Just several weeks after winning 'Frosty Fausting XII' Hoodless is able to collect another victory at 'Juicy Monday' as Dead or Alive 6...

Team NINJA is starting this year off with a promise to the community to make Dead or Alive 6 the fighting game you want, but unfortunately they have held off with Version 1.18 to begin this conversion to that. To accompany the few balance changes & bug fixes made in 1.18 is the Season 4 Pass that launched on the 21st of January. Before release, Team NINJA previewed some of the new Cyber costumes on Twitter to launch the new pass, and there is no questioning that these are among the coolest looking DLC outfits in the game. The string of revival costume DLC will also continue separately sold from the season pass owners on the 21st starting with maid outfits.

While the season passes can get...

I was fan of this game since 2003. And now I don't want to play it anymore because of lack of hair color on pc. I always wanted to change Ayane's hair color. But haven't this possibility on pc. I think she is ugly and play her only bc she is fast
