The Dead or Alive series is back with Dead or Alive 6 on the show floor of E3 2018. The new game brings with it some significant changes, including the addition of a traditional meter system meant to power new mechanics.
For those curious about some of the changes to the game, players have begun to try to analyze the bits of footage that we’ve gotten from the show. One of these is Rojikku, who’s uploaded a couple of videos where he breaks down bits and pieces of the game.
The first one breaks down some off screen match footage from YouTube channel VGP. The footage features a couple of matches featuring Jann Lee, including a mirror match. Here, Rojikku makes some observations about some of the new moves, the new crowd-based danger zone, as well as some new strings that Jann Lee may have.
In addition to this, he also breaks down some of the footage from the PlayStation live stream, going over what we saw of the game’s menus and interfaces.
In addition to these, Tyaren over at Free Step Dodge has also captured some screenshots from the live stream, specifically of the character and stage select screens. Of note is how the former now frames the character portraits in the style of old boxing posters.
Dead or Alive 6 is set to arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2019.
