Oh, it’s like that, is it? Team Ninja’s been talking about how Dead or Alive 6 is going to be a more mature take on the series, but here’s Hitomi and Leifang being, shall we say, tickled by a giant tentacle. Both characters were confirmed earlier in the month, but this is our first look at the fighters, via a Gamescom 2018 leak by French website Playscope.
The octopus, by the way, is a Danger Zone in a new abandoned ship level; it’s basically an interactive element that when triggered will do additional damage. The game’s due out early next year, and we’re sure we’ll get a trailer of these two in action when the Cologne convention officially gets underway next week.

Blame the site for cropping the two character images so it focuses on their arses. Nothing to do with me.
@get2sammyb Sure sure
Anyhow I’m interested in this DoA since it’s dripping some of the fanservice and rediculous jiggle. I don’t mind maid costumes, but when pure lace is a costume with jiggle, come on man. It looks more accessible than Tekken, but still a solid 3D fighter.
Did someone say tentacles?
I've seen enough ****** to know where this is going!
Looking forward to this.
Not to mention Lei Fang’s camel tow...
Please announce my girl Mila
That tentacle better be playable.
Can't wait for this game! Loved DOA5 and a big fan of the series now.
Really looking forward to DOA6 hopefully it's not too far away
This game is going to flop very hard, it lost most of the already little fanbase to try to appeal to a broader and more casual public but the casual public never cared about niche games, they just want more god of war, uncharted and CoD, nothing else matters.
And with soul Calibur 6 better than ever and Tekken kicking asses out there, DoA without their old fans is just a niche 3D fighter that's going to drown.
@get2sammyb "Blame the site for cropping the two character images so it focuses on their arses. Nothing to do with me"
sure thing sammy
It will be full of DLC packs like the last DOA game I know you could get a light version of it and add stuff to it yourself but this game will be a slightly filled up version. With more costumes DLC than Street Fighter 4 and 5 out together
Hitomi looking like my boy Akira Yuki from Virtua Fighter
Marie Rose or no buy.
@VRDart I'd rather have DOA6 than Tekken 7, and I used to be a huge Tekken fan.
I don't usually use this phrase because I feel a lot of times it's misused but it applies aptly here... Get woke, go broke. In trying to appeal to the always offended crowd and shunning the ones who kept the series alive, they're fighting a losing battle. People can b**ch, moan and complain all they want about 'fan service.' Guess what? The fans are the ones who bought these games, they're the ones who are the reason certain franchises still exist, so if sometimes developers try to appeal to them there's nothing wrong with that, you don't have to buy the fan service stuff. Unfortunately Team Ninja has decided to flip its fans off and now we're going to see how it plays out. My feeling is, it won't end well.
I'll probably buy the game, either at launch or not long after, as long as they don't skimp on single player modes like Capcom did with SF V. We know for sure there will be tons of costume DLC, but my concern is with the E-Sports focus this genre has taken, more and more will take the SF V approach. Story mode late, Arcade mode even later, etc. At least with SF V it was free but I could easily see Koei Tecmo making story mode a $5 or $10 DLC. Even at those relatively cheap prices I will not support that practice. Only game in the genre that's a sure day one purchase these days is Smash. Nintendo doesn't cut corners with that series.
@Gamer83 I'm planning on getting the new SSB at launch, but I don't know about cutting corners, SSB Wii U was dissapointing. A good game, but it locked characters that should have already in the game behind DLC as the new character roster wasn't very good, had a severe lack of stages, new and old, and lacked a decent SP mode because the maker was a crybaby about the cutscenes from Brawl being on Youtube (and no one was Don Corlioni and told him to be a man). It had that broken awful board game. It locked a neat idea behind Amiibos too. Graphical presentation was also lacking. The content restricted by console without it being the 3DS couldn't handle it was also there, so I wouldn't say that haven't been guilty of cutting corners. It looks the new one won't, but it cut more than one corner with the last game.
I looooooove how the characters are wearing stuff you would actually wear in a fighting tournament now!
