Koei Tecmo was present at the Fighting Game Publishers’ Roundtable and talked about the current situation of the Dead or Alive franchise.
Dude itagaki is there!! Damn. He never should have left Tecmo Koei
They needed to take a break from that nonsense of micro transaction milking. But not making the game even better. Stopped buying the game years ago because of it. And they talk about the free, core version. It's trash. I uninstalled that a long, long time ago. And only played it for a day. Lol. 3 million downloads. Nonsense. Where's Virtual Fighter?
In the portfolio of another publisher. 🤔
I've played VF. I know who makes it. And I know where Yu is.
Last game was pretty disappointing. Story mode was so barren and mostly pointless. Regular progression was non existent. I didbt mind the MT milking of the last game because the content was there, and it was a good game, but this last one seemed so geared towards online I just stopped playing it for lack of things to do.
Stop treating the series like a lazy excuse for a microtransaction platform. Seriously never played a fighting game so damn half assed as DOA6
Yeah. I used to love this series. The fighting system and 3D arenas had so much potential to outdo the others. Even with Itagaki thinking he was a rockstar. Now it's just a joke with soft hentai themes.
they needed a much better way to unlock outfits. it was insane the work you had to do, that just encouraged some to buy them instead.
Worse was that they were boring outfits and were often just a bunch of color swaps. Like when Zack, the comedic relief character, only has business suits, ya dun fugged up
They need to make the characters look more real and less anime
Microtransaction City right there. Maybe lay off the milking and revamp your 3D stages to start so the game can build some respect.
