Koei Tecmo has announced that an upcoming update for its 3D fighter Dead or Alive 6 will be its last, bringing an end to a year of patches and expensive DLC practices.
The final update - bringing DoA 6 to Version 1.22 - will include two sets of DLC costumes: The "Revival" High Society costumes and "Revival" school uniforms, along with a final run of bug fixes and balance tweaks. After the patch is implemented, further DLC and support will end for DoA 6, although obviously the servers, rankings, and online store will be remain available.
I found Dead or Alive 6 a disappointment. Following the excellent Dead or Alive 5: Last Round - and taking into account developer talk of having a whole new perspective on the franchise, focusing more on The Fight and less on the cheese - it seemed like Dead or Alive 6 was going to be a rebirth of sorts, prepping the long-running series for its leap into a new generation.
