Dead or Alive 6 has been playable at several events, but for the first time will available to the world through an online beta test! The beta begins January 11th at 8am PDT and ends January 14th at 7:59am PDT. Before enjoying this beta you will want to read up on additional information and user requirements provided for you here at FSD.
To participate you will need a PlayStation 4 with a PlayStation Plus subscription. If you are without Plus, check to see if you can apply for a free trial before committing to a paid plan. You are not required to pre-order DOA6 to participate in the test, but it is recommended that you do pre-order before the game releases as you will receive Nyo-Tengu for free.
The only characters planned for the beta are: Kasumi, Ayane, Ryu Hayabusa, Hayate and newcomer Diego! The only stage available will be the DOA Colosseum. This is your chance to try the game out for free, scout player behaviors and explore new...
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. The time will likely be used to add even more polish to the game, and this delay also presents a better release window for the FGC.
We will keep you posted here at FSD with all new information pertaining to this, and also be sure to follow Team NINJA Studio and the Official Game on Twitter for more updates.
Last weekend there was a casual tournament for Dead or Alive 6 at Couch Warriors Crossup in Melbourne, Australia. This preview was informative, but also our first glimpse of what competitive DOA6 could be like. The DOA6 demo provided runs on the same build shown at DOA Festival, so you will see improvements to the stage design and more Bass gameplay, who has hardly been seen since his reveal.
Considering this was a preview event, the matches were really good for the time these fighters had with DOA6. Some players do not like the Break Blow and Hold mechanics, but these players showed how imperative they are to creating a more seamless experience. When you combine these factors with the improved animation, you have an absolutely stunning game that defines what an e-sport title should be for competitive players and spectators alike.
