Dead or Alive 6 Release Date Moved Back to March 1

KOEI TECMO America and Team NINJA announced today that the worldwide Dead or Alive 6 release date will now be March 1, 2019. The change in date — originally scheduled for a February 15, 2019 release — is due to the developer’s desire to further enhance and balance the hotly-anticipated fighting game.

“The title’s development is already near complete; however, we would like to take more time to further polish its balance, gameplay, and expressivity. In return for your patience, we commit to bringing you the best Dead or Alive gaming experience,” said Yohei Shimbori, the game’s Producer and Director. “I am truly sorry for the inconvenience caused by the release delay of Dead or Alive 6.”

Dead or Alive 6 is the triumphant return of the celebrated Dead or Alive fighting game franchise. Aspiring fighters will be able to experience the sixth Dead or Alive World Combat Championship where every fight will be presented in amazing detail, allowing fans to discern intricate facial expressions unparalleled to those seen in previous entries in the series.
