Team NINJA has finally permitted video game industry journalists to show more of their gameplay footage from upcoming mega prequel Nioh 2 showcasing a new location & stunning new boss fights while revealing more details themselves in the process through interviews. This epic adventure is being hailed as one of the best games they have produced since Ninja Gaiden: Black a separate Team NINJA series that also might see the light of day again soon. With gorgeous Nioh 2 coming March 13th, future adjustments to DOA6 & the success of Venus Vacation - 2020 could be the greatest year Team NINJA has ever had.

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.

Highlights from Pools

A lot of newcomers showed up to compete at KIT this year, and while it may show in their combo tech, new players typically respond with different kinds of damaging opportunities. Even if good combo implementation is preferred in...

Dead or Alive 6 has been nominated for 'best fighting game of the year' via the Video Games Awards show streaming now. Players had all of the time in the world to vote for their favorite fighter at the official website for the event, and even if DOA6 has one of the smaller communities and will likely not win against Smash Brothers or Mortal Kombat, it is nice to see our game considered for a GOTY award. Did you vote for Dead or Alive 6, and do you think it's GOTY material?

Despite having a mixed reaction, Dead or Alive 6 won a plethora of awards at last year's E3 and has been downloaded over 2 million times through their FTP system since the release date earlier this year. Team NINJA encourages newcomers to play and support the game and they are offering free characters, frame data and access to all of the stages & modes (but story) through Core Fighers.

Team NINJA has been releasing patches weekly instead of bi-weekly which is kind of out of the norm for them, but also makes sense this week given it's December and the last 'Revival' pack is Christmas themed. If you are not feeling the Christmas spirit this year, consider accepting a gift from Team NINJA anyway, with next free costume celebrating 2+ million Core Fighters downloads. Version 1.16 patch notes have been released, and outside of stuff already mentioned in this news post, there is nothing new to report for the gameplay.

Some players are already reporting to have the new 'Revival' available to download, and this pack includes 28 costumes! Some of these costumes are color swaps from red-black; the black Santa being coded "Bad Santa" for Bass in Dead or Alive 5. The free outfit included with this update will be the fifth outfit given away in Dead or Alive 6, previous...

@LordXav1er managed to absolutely dominate his opponents with Hitomi at Big E Gaming's NEC 20. Not only did he make Hitomi look like an S-tier superstar, but he crushed some of the strongest players in the game today. Congratulations to Lord Xav1er as he has proven that hard work will eventually pay off if you remain dedicated to it. Stay tuned for the replay, check out the bracket and congratulate your new NEC 20 champion!

For those desiring to experience DOA6 at it's best quality, have no fear, as the tournament will run on PCs thanks to the dedication and commitment from Free Step Dodge's own Matt Ponton!

Team NINJA has released yet another new patch for Dead or Alive 6 including free game changes & paid DLC for all platforms! Players discovered new gameplay adjustments hours before the patch notes dropped at Team NINJA's official website. New 'Training Gear' DLC has been released, and Team NINJA has a free Kasumi outfit prepared for all players to celebrate 2 million Core Fighters downloads.

While Diego and Rig's 1P commands remain intact, Black Moon & Emery Reigns quickly discovered that most low-tracking 1Ps have been nerfed. Some players could consider this a very good thing for the game considering the strength of these moves, but others may wonder why on earth Momiji would be nerfed of her natural combo from this input when she's already near the bottom of the tier list. Hayate was beginning to build momentum in the offline scene with an impressive showing from Perfect Legend, but his 1P...

Rachel finally makes her long-awaited return to the Dead or Alive series being formally announced at the end of Dead or Alive Festival 2019! Alma's sister looks to transition to Dead or Alive 6 beautifully with a sleek & sexy design combined with new intoxicating moves. A lot of her original trademark attacks from Dead or Alive 5 are still intact as made evident by the trailer that also showcased outfits and purchase options.

:spartan:

We technically can't say that all of these moves are original to Rachel since her move-set is modeled from super-fun guest character Spartan-458 in Dead or Alive 4. That being said Rachel is an official Team NINJA character, and we will not have to worry about her being excluded from DLC outfits like Mai and Kula have been. Rachel's presence was so strong in NINJA GAIDEN and her compelling story and beauty made her a Team NINJA fan favorite overall.

For over a month Dead or Alive players have been submitting their original costume artwork for DOA6 to Team NINJA with winners finally announced at DOA Festival 2019. Players can observe a ton of the submitted designs at the DOA6 Design Contest 2019 thread, and watch the results of the contest at Team NINJA's Official Twitch. This designer contest is complemented by a creative cosplay event with special guest Bass... I mean Matt Ponton.


The cosplayers put on an entertaining show and all have cool & individual character designs. @Matt Ponton brought back his Bass cosplay for DOA6, and it was incredibly detailed. There was a Hayabusa complete with a Dragon Sword, an identical twin of Brad Wong, and even some of the girls from Venus Vacation. The character variety at this contest was...

Team NINJA announced the three winners of the Dead or Alive 6 Photo Contest at DOA Festival 2019 in Tokyo, Japan. This event had hundreds of participants photographing the game within the rules & three categories: coolest photo, cutest photo and the best gimmick. This event gave players that don't normally compete in tournaments a chance to get their name and contribution out there with exclusive prizes from Team NINJA for the winners.


NiCO in her Witch costume casting an electric spell is the winner of the 'Cool' category. This outfit was released in the opening costume pack for Season Pass 3 at the end of October 2019. The player did a solid job of capturing Team NINJA's newest character in her element with dazzling effects & practical costume combination.


A Nyo-Tengu closeup in her wedding costume from Season Pass 1 is the winner of the 'Cute' category. Most people do not like the white costumes in Dead or...

Since Dead or Alive 6 couldn't be delayed the community has since been treated to minuscule bi-weekly updates that provide simple fixes and additional content for the game. Patch notes have been released via Team NINJA's official website and Summer continues this Fall with the 19.99 USD 'Hot Summer' Bikini pack. This is the third consecutive DLC pack to completely shutout the male characters and the second set not included in a Season Pass.

Our report for Version 1.13 was adamant about bringing back tournament notifications to the news box located at the main menu for DOA6, and Team NINJA has quickly responded to this coincidentally with notices pertaining to the Main Event of the Dead or Alive 6 World Championship this month at DOA Festival. To make things even better, Team NINJA's offline...

Team NINJA has released Version 1.13 Patch Notes for all platforms at their official website and have launched Season 3 with Halloween-themed Witch costumes exclusive to the female cast. The Season 3 Pass is priced at 79.99 USD and will include additional costumes from now through December. One additional character will be added in December, wildly believed to be Rachel who was found in the database by expert DOA modder, @gatto tom.

The bizarrely structured menu of Dead or Alive 6 is slightly improved in Version 1.13 as you can now quickly access your Wardrobe at DOA Central, but it's also one of the many ways costumes are advertised through individual purchase. Version 1.12 added one additional store link to the left panel of the main menu, and the news box on the top-right is easily the better view, but sends you to the exact...

It’s so weird, but in five weeks I’m gonna be a godfather to my little niece. I can’t wait for the day she’s born ❤️
Good GOD it is hard to stomach 'Dahmer' but Evan Peters and Ryan Murphy? I trust them with almost anything. They told a disturbing, but interesting story. To me if I had no idea who Dahmer was, I would have gone into that show thinking it was a mainstay season of American Horror Story.
Someone remind me to buy some low back cut t-shirts soon so I can show off my Kasumi tattoo more xD it's been a few months but I'm still so in love with it♡
I'm not sure if I'll ever get Wanted Dead, but I thought this would interest some people


so nothing develop for Ninja Gaiden as of right now. The IP just hanging there for any company willing to develop it.
