Dead or Alive 6 was supported by the developer for one year and we've heard nothing for an entire year after about what is happening with the series.
They added how much $$$ worth of DLC costumes? I think a lot of fans are probably sick of this practice other than the die-hards or those with deep pockets. Unlike other fighting games, adding more costumes brings nothing new to the table. The core game is very much the same as it was on release. With the free to play Venus Vacation or whatever it is called, there is a real chance they could add plenty new fighters from there, but they choose not to.
DoA is becoming a meme at this point. It used to be a fighting game with some sexy fighters, now it’s the other way around. Rather go to a porn site. Cheaper.
Usually i didnt care about the DLC because the games were packed with enough content on there own imo. But 6 is a f#@king disgrace, not only is it the least amount of constumes i've ever seen in a fighter period, they are the lamest and most generic bland outfits in the series. Seriously when Zack only has business suits and some ufc shorts, you done messed up. So much of this game screams of low effort, really shook my confidence in team ninja
Dead or Alive 6 never made a EVO tournament
Doa 3,4,5,6 were just DOA 2 with more characters and more sexy costumes anyway. Even Tekken evolved more.
Dead or Alive went to hell after 4.
I'm glad everyone here recognizes that a once respected fighting game has become a joke. With all those crappy micro transactions and concentration on the women and not improving the fighting. Or evolving the genre. Team Ninja is scraping the gutter.
I used to hold DOA in high regard, DOA2 blew me away at the time, being able to change arenas mid battle was really cool back then. Now it's just a pervy microtransactionfest. If you like that then that's fine but DOA used to be so much more. They should have just kept that stuff in the volleyball games for people who enjoy the skimpy costume dlcs.
The last one I could stomach was 5 Last Round and even that was a joke in certain ways with its ridiculous DLC practices. DOA6 was the first DOA I truly didn't care about. In order to get me to care they're gonna have to do some sort of enhanced and complete version for PS5 to even get me to remotely care again.
