The new “Unforgettable” stage mashes together classic stages into one.
Following their reveal for Dead or Aive 6 in this week’s issue of Famitsu, Team NINJA has now released the trailer for Brad Wong and Eliot. In addition to showing them off, it also shows a new stage called that calls back to classic stages from previous games.
The new stage, called “Unforgettable” is seemingly set up as a movie set, with each set piece references one of the series’ past stages. These include “Gambler’s Paradise” from Dead or Alive 4, “Hot Zone” from Dead or Alive 5, “Danger Zone” from Dead or Alive and Dead or Alive 5: Last Round, and more. The interesting thing about all these stages that are being referenced is they’re all known for the stage hazards they present, most of which are recreated here. Additionally, the footage of the stage also confirms the return of low fences, which were removed in Dead or Alive 5.
As for Brad and Eliot, the trailer lets us see them in action while rocking their new costumes for Dead or Alive 6. Interestingly enough, Eliot is wearing a costume that used to be worn by his master, Gen Fu, which may hint that the latter isn’t in the game. Indeed, you can see him pull off some of his master’s strings in the trailer below.
Dead or Alive 6 kicks its way to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 15, 2019.
