Yohei Shimbori, director of the upcoming Dead or Alive 6
recently confirmed that a free-to-play version will be available as part of their post-launch roadmap. Speaking to Siliconera, the iconic director also stated that the setup will be similar to Dead or Alive 5: Core Fighters. Other than that, he was not able to divulge any other pertaining to the features of the version due to the absence of "concrete details" regarding its features. He also mentioned that the free-to-play version is their way of enticing casual players and to broaden the game's eSports fanbase.
"While I was working on fighting games, I was researching a lot on how to do that and having them learn everything is impossible. I put a lot of effort for players by adding a training mode which also shows which frames you can take advantage of for professional players." - Yohei Shimbori speaking to Siliconera
Part of the discussion also covered the game's training mode, which, according to the director, will not only feature a combo challenge but also has the ability to display frames. Even better is the integration of a special "Fatal Rush" button for beginners and that the "Danger Zones" in the games' stages will be a bit difficult to take advantage of. Dead or Alive 6 is scheduled to launch on March 1, 2019, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Check out the trailer for the game below and stay tuned form ore gaming news and updates.
