Dead or Alive 6 will be getting a 'Deluxe Demo', Koei Tecmo has confirmed. It'll feature online battles, training modes, combo challenges, and a brief look at the game's story. It'll also include all 24 playable characters, so more hardcore fans of the series may appreciate the opportunity to test out their favourite fighters before the game launches in March. The demo releases on the 22nd February, but it's worth noting that you'll need PlayStation Plus to play it.
In other Dead or Alive 6 news, Mai Shiranui of King of Fighters fame will be returning. Mai was a DLC character in Dead or Alive 5: Last Round, and you're going to have to pay for her again in the sequel. Bit of a weird way to do it, but she is a collaboration character, we suppose. Mai's due out in June alongside another unannounced King of Fighters guest.
Naturally, Dead or Alive 6 is getting a season pass, too. The ominously named 'Season Pass 1' will include the above guest characters as well as 62 new costumes. Let's just hope it's not priced at £70 this time, eh?
Don't know how anyone can buy this when the season pass adds content that you used to play for like in Dead or Alive 2. And naming it Season Pass 1 should be an indicator not to buy at launch but wait a little or a ultimate version
Cool to have Mai back. I wonder who the other KOF character will be. Yuri?
@shonenjump86 Kinda hoping it'll be Geese Howard!
... But I highly doubt it. Guy doesn't look that good in a bikini.
@ShogunRok lol, at least he’s in Tekken 7. I wouldn’t mind if it’s a guy from KOF joining Mai to kinda balance things out. Terry Bogard will be in Fighting EX Layer, so I’ll say it won’t be him. Never know though,
Mai was a nice addition to 5, glad she's back.
It'll be a nice surprise if the season pass isn't extortionate. I'll just buy characters separately.
Awesome. I'm not a huge fan of the series but I picked up Dimensions on the 3DS and 5+ on the VITA. Both very good fighters, especially for portables. Very few fighters on the systems had as good online, as good visuals, or simple controls to masters. Will definitely download the demo to see how it is!
Seasonpass 1 i guess complete games are dead. I even think the Japanese companies are even worse then the American these days. 😔
@wiggleronacid I really liked the Beta it was really solid gameplay and it looked great with solid gameplay. Only the seasonpass 1 line makes me really dissapointed. 😢
They never did an "ultimate edition" for DOA5. Instead, they released Season Passes year after year. By the time an ultimate edition is even considered, they'll drop DOA7 instead. Rinse & repeat.
