Dead or Alive 6
With a new, more mature image and a more accessible approach to its gameplay, Dead or Alive 6 seems like it could mark a new beginning for the series. Only time will tell if it is suitable as an esports title, but for now Team Ninja wants to focus on delivering an enjoyable fighting game for everyone, and continue supporting it with updates long after launch. Hayashi believes that rather than trying to organize tournaments before DOA6 is even released, Team Ninja should focus on delivering the best game they can, and see how the community reacts to that. While Dead or Alive 5 Last Round is confirmed for a side tournament at EVO this August, Shimbori revealed to us the team is considering making DOA6 playable by attendees at that event, so hopefully we won’t have to wait long to see the fans’ reaction.
At the very least, Hayashi passing the torch to a fighting-game fanatic like Shimbori – who seems to see an almost evangelical mission in reaching a broader audience – sounds like a clever decision, and it will be interesting to see what kind of punch Dead or Alive 6 will pack when it is released next year.
Ovoga puta ciljaju na realizam :DD
In Dead or Alive 6, female characters’ breasts no longer jiggle and bounce in the exaggerated fashion the series became increasingly known for, and the costumes we have seen so far are less revealing. Female characters are depicted in a more natural way, which makes them feel more human and believable than before.
Napravili su novi model za Hayabusu:
Hayabusa, who is also the main character of the Ninja Gaiden series, is an interesting case. Until now, his character design for Dead or Alive has been based on the most recent Ninja Gaiden entry. However, a new numbered Ninja Gaiden has not been released since 2012, when both Ninja Gaiden 3 and Dead or Alive 5 came out, and so the new Hayabusa has been designed especially for Dead or Alive 6 under the supervision of Ninja Gaiden director Fumihiko Yasuda. It makes us wonder if Hayabusa will have a similar appearance for a potential new Ninja Gaiden entry, but nothing of the like has been announced yet.
