Dead or Alive 6 is planned for release in 2019.
Running on a new engine, Dead or Alive 6 introduces more refined and realistic visual details, including dynamic facial expressions.
There is a new meter which rises as you receive/deal damage and block attacks, which can be used to unleash a flurry of blows or a special counter attack that works against all forms of regular strikes. Break Blow is an offensive special attack, and Break Hold is a defensive move, which doesn't deal a ton of damage but counters almost all types of attacks. This time around, Team Ninja wanted to be more friendly to beginners.
Team Ninja is going to bring the latest in the series of fightings, Dead or Alive 6, to the E3 conference. Turns out that's exactly what was happening as Tecmo has just announced that Dead or Alive 6 is officially being released. Longtime fans don't need to worry about any drastic changes to its core gameplay as that aspect has largely remained the same.
DOA favorites are also slated to return, such as Kasumi, Hayate, Hayabusa, Helena, Jann Lee, and Zack.
Overall, this looks pretty interesting and you'll tell from the trailer below that the game looks very sharp. According to Director/Producer Yohei Shimbori, the final character roster will include other familiar fighters as well as some brand new characters.
