KOEI Tecmo has just announced that Dead or Alive 6 will release on February 15th, 2019. In order to celebrate this announcement, the publisher has also released a brand new gameplay trailer that you can find below.

KOEI Tecmo did not reveal the game’s full roster but from this trailer we can see some familiar faces that will be coming back. Similarly to pretty much all other fighting games, Dead or Alive 6 will feature 3D graphics but will retain its 2D gameplay mechanics.
Now I don’t know if it’s just me but the fighting in Dead or Alive 6 feels a bit weird. It feels like the hits do not have any meaningful impact on opponents (and the hit reaction feels non-existent). It just feels like there is no weight, force or power behind the kicks and punches. Or at least that’s what I got from this latest gameplay trailer!
