Dead or Alive 6 Trailers Show Off Combat, Features and Exclusive Characters

By Sam Quirke, 5 days ago
As PlayStation 4 players gear up for an exclusive DEAD OR ALIVE 6 Beta test this weekend, the rest of us will have to make do with a couple of new trailers.

This first trailer shows off the game's frenetic combat before detailing the "Triangle" Battle System, which is basically Rock-Paper-Scissors rules. Strikes will beat Throws, Throws beat Holds and Holds beat strikes. Next to be demonstrated are some of the signature combos available to players, such as Fatal Rush and Break Blow. We get to see the dress-up area in DOA Central and some examples of character-specific DOA Quests.


The second video focuses on exclusive additional characters Nyotengu and Phase 4. Nyotengu is a pre-order bonus, whereas Phase 4 is only available in the Deluxe Set.


Dead or Alive 6 is out on March 1st.

We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the DEAD OR ALIVE 6 achievements.
