Official game info
The DEAD OR ALIVE Tournament Executive Committee and hosts of DEAD OR ALIVE 6.
DOATEC already released the names of the first set of fighters involved in this instalment – including the owner of DOATEC, Helena Douglas.
Other notable fighters include the eighteenth master of the Mugen Tenshin clan, Hayate.
Past DEAD OR ALIVE (DOA) tournament winners; Kasumi of the Mugen Tenshin clan. The ultimate ninja, Ryu Hayabusa. The ever-entertaining host, Zack, and the most recent tournament winner, the scorching soul Jann Lee!
Two new locations have been scouted to host key matches in the sixth tournament.
The remarkable DOA Colosseum, complete with three bold statues showcasing famous fighting stances.
The Throwdown, a gritty back street where raw unfiltered fighting can take place in its prime. Select locations, such as The Throwdown, allow the live audience to get even closer to the action than ever before – with some unruly fans breaking the rules and pushing fighters back into the centre of the ring.
Combined with the fan-favourite ‘Mass Destruction’, where fighters can use the environment in their attacks, this tournament is set to be one of the most entertaining ever hosted by DOATEC.
Triangle System: Fights in Dead or Alive are based on a triangle system: strikes beat throws, throws beat
When you land an attack of one type that beats another type, like landing a strike when an opponent tries to throw, that attack becomes a Hi Counter attack and does even more damage.
Break Gauge System: A special attack meter new to the series. Use the Break Gauge to execute new tactics such as a Break Blow or a Break Hold.
Break Blow: A Break Blow is a special skill which has a powerful smash while parrying an enemy strike.
Break Hold: A Break Hold is the ultra hold which returns upper, middle, and lower attacks.
Fatal Rush: Fatal Rush is a powerful combo attack of up to four neatly animated punches and kicks making a first time player look like an expert.
In Stages Action
Danger Zones: These are special regions found in most stages that cause heavy damage when a fighter gets knocked into them.
Danger Zones can range from basic walls to blockbuster explosions and careening cars. Some stages also have Danger Zones within the floors as well.
Rumble Danger: If a fighter is blown into the crowd, the spectators around the edge of the ring can push the fighter back in and will lose their balance and stagger. This creates an opening for the perfect chance to attack.
Mass Destruction: Stage objects such as boxes or jars are destructible. Earn extra damage by blowing opponents into them.
Broken items do not regenerate, but you may want to break them before your opponent decides to use them on you.
