DOA Festival will be starting in 2 hours, if people aren't going to be able to watch it but want to know what happened, I'll add in a TL;DR and most likely a video of the newest fighter/s and stage or whatever.

EDIT:
TL;DR
- DOA Venus Vacation will be celebrating it's one year anniversary with some new outfits for all of the playable characters. 1 outfit for 5 characters and the other outfit for the other 5
- DOAX3 will be getting a new version that will come out for the PS4 and the Switch which confirmed will have Misaki playable, more info will be for that later.
- Teru Rock is the winner of the final sponsored DOA5LR tourney
- DOA6 has a new stage that unfortunately wasn't shown on stream called the Hanging Gardens, not sure if it's Aerial Gardens or it's a whole new stage.
- DOA6 has a whole new mode where you can customize your characters freely(base outfit, accessory, hairstyle if able and even titles) and have them in premade slots.
- Kokoro and Lisa returns in DOA6. Lisa is not dead and doesn't seem injured at all and Kokoro now knows that Helena is her sister.
- They unveiled the new female character in Nico, a slightly taller female than Marie Rose but not as flatchested and also 18. She's apparently in league with Donovan from her trailer and is either an Android or a scientist that uses electric gloves and can teleport in her repertoire.

I'll update with her trailer when they have them up on their Youtube.

EDIT 2:


I didn't even realize it until someone from FSD pointed it out... the robot she's repairing in her trailer? That's RAIDOU as he is from DOA5... so that's confirmation that he will return in some form.

WEll, she's the one that gets the most ships; did she ever get shipped with a guy, though ?

No, that's vanilla Jeanne(and even in this game, the SiegxJeanne ship is halted as he won't approach her for fear that she won't remember him but she does... but nothing past that). Jeanne Alter is more shipped with the protagonist ingame.

I didn't even recognize the Ghost N' Goblin's reference...

They are doing a good job with the subtitles like with Saber Wars: The Caliburn Awakens and the like.

that's just how anime games are. a year or so of support then complete shutdown ... surprisingly xenoverse 2 despite it being lack luster is the only game i can think of that is getting support even after it's 2 year mark and still have 2 more dlc to come. probably because of the upcoming movie and probably the return of dbs early next year.

It was the same thing with Xenoverse.
Dragonball Z is just that popular, combined with being able to create your own character basically means people will be sticking around, especially since they are giving reasons for people to do so.

bass has the dad bod and bear fetish and he didn't get even close to top 10.

That was for the females who would be in DOAX3...
And there has never been a playable male character in those games.

EDIT: Another interview
https://www.dualshockers.com/dead-alive-6-interview-part-1/
TL;DR
-There won't be OMG mode on release(they feel it's too exaggerated from DOA5)
- You can toggle the blood and face punches(for the sissies... and Japanese- OOOOHHH... no but they do say it in that interview, couldn't resist)
- Kokoro and Brad Wong are super confirmed(despite the death of his VA)
- DOA was already fantastical in nature, so trying to bring up why it's more realistic but then talking about Krakens and Dinosaurs isn't a good point(No seriously, the fact people tried to use this for why the fanservice was being "downgraded" for the series to be more realistic makes no sense when the past games and the universe it's connected to has monsters, ninja magic and clone technology and possible time related BS in which they explained Naotora's inclusion)
- They was planning on revealing Tina, Bass and Mila at EVO and/or E3 but their schedule didn't align with it(mainly because they are American characters)
- They don't regret how they've been showcasing the game since the starter trailer for DOA5 also focused primarily on Ryu and Hayate fighting before showing off everyone else(I can't exactly remember this but I do remember that Ayane and Hitomi was the first females shown so he may have a point).

EDIT: And I would be assed if I didn't show this despite it's pointless addition... but there WAS some people asking about the females' pancake asses(even in FSD some people talked about this... I was one of them...) and they worked on it for DOAX3 and well...

https://i.imgur.com/lJnTKRY.mp4

I guess they gave us Ass Physics like in Soul Calibur 2.

Final EDIT: Wouldn't be surprised if some dumbass from Eventhubs brings it up and we get an article specifically for this but not of anything else...

It seems like I have more reason to keep in touch with the DOA Festival as Tina, Mila and Bass will be playable at the demo there.

Also:


So there seems to be different sound cues whenever you before a different type of stun like in some other fighters.
That's actually very helpful for beginners and pros who don't want to dig super hard for frame data.



All the current Break Blows and Danger Zones. I'm still pretty iffy on Break Blows(while Power Blows do have more oomph, I can also understand why they went to Break Blows since it's based on a bar now rather than getting it when you get to 50% so the action can keep going).



General gameplay video...god they need to work on the loading times post haste(the loading times for DOA5 was very, very quick by comparison) but I can also understand as it's still in progress.

EDIT: Maybe I should have waited a bit as there's a bit more news that someone brought in from FSD.



Another gameplay video with the community manager of the game MASTER

Well, that did not take long. I'm surprised they brought Mila back as well... didn't think she was that popular in 5.

Actually she is pretty popular within the American base since she really does nail the MMA style that they was aiming for with her.
The Japanese base is more iffy though.

I honestly have to say I like Tina's new outfit the most and the return of the Father Daughter Tag Team they was in DOA2 before their relationship turned rocky.

I got myself a great haul from the Camelot Batch:
2 Nitocris(NP3 Nitocris)
2 Bediveres(before I finished Camelot so NP3)
4 Gawains
1 Tristan
1 Saberlot(NP2)
1 ... Arjuna(NP2)
and 1 RAMSSES!!! THE MAN IN GAUZE, THE MAIN IN GAUZE!... sorry Ozymandias.

From 300+ SQ used. Though I really don't care THAT hard if I do or don't get Cleopatra though as while I do want a 5 star assassin, I wouldn't be crying if I don't get her.

without anything to help this game stand out, it would feel like a downgraded version of the last game

The thing is that the "censorship" thing was faked by news sites because there is otherwise nothign to talk about in this game, no new game modes, no big leap in graphics; by playing the censorship angles they got some clicks at least.

Actually, there was plenty of things to talk about the game, they just chose not to because the "censorship" nonsense was the easiest thing anyone would digest because why pretend DOA must be an actual fighting game with actual merits because of the fact that it marketed on it's "sex sells" appeal and get those who never would even watch it to suddenly act as if it's all the game has to offer.

There was plenty of extra interviews by Shimbori about the game during the last few months, DOA6 was in PS Experience and Tokyo Game Show with plenty of people playing it and there's the news I brought up that came in during those announcements...

What's funnier is that Soul Calibur 6 is in a similar state and yet people don't skimp out on the news coverage for that game... or do what Eventhubs does and make articles about ANYTHING Capcom related, that or Smash and DBZ related. Why bother talking about other games when it's easier to make an article comparing Darkstalker Mod Outfits to Capcom's version...

Honestly, you could say the same about most fighting games released in this gen, smaller roster, slightly improved graphics and less game modes.

Atleast with DOA6, I can understand why they removed Tag Mode(basically, Tag Mode was broken for DOA5 as simply getting launched would easily put you in an Instant Death Combo with no way to stop it and it's obvious that balancing that mode alone would take enough to equal a game itself) but I'm not certain for other games.

From what I just watched (Thanks XHominid for the videos), it looks like that the game play, at least, retains the feel from past games: Simple to pick up and learn, but hard to master.

Are they going to announce more characters in the future, because I kind of think this game is missing a few well known characters here (Bass and Tina come to mind...)

Yeah, it's obvious they plan on announcing more at the DOA Festival in November and they are planning on having more character reveals between now and February with the only DLC(but still able to get from Pre-Orders) is Nyotengu and Phase-4.

I plan on adding in more videos(even some past ones) and more links to interviews from this point forth because the gameplay should be more acknowledged at this point.

I agree... while it was nice to see Virtua Fighter characters in DoA5, I think sticking to the core cast and adding a few newcomers would be best for DoA6.

Yeah if I remember the interview, they said they aren't focusing on guest characters at this very moment so DOA6 will most likely have no guest characters in the base game but they haven't completely taken that option away either so they can be DLC in the future.

Yeah thanks for that, It's better to actually offer some actual news and gameplay than further feed into the drama for once or let it perpetuate.

And I forgot to say this earlier because no one else will but DOA6 will be getting an Arcade Release to coincide with the game... so for those who know of that, that means that we will actually get to explore balance patches, new characters and otherwise before their release in the game.

So this is honestly great for a multitude of reasons.

Holy shit, Zack got eyes....I thought his shades were super glued to his face. Also Xhominid, I agree with ya on that part, there's too much arguing about a simple feature, when at the end of the day it's not going to affect the combat. That break blow however.....hoo boy that's kinda rough.

It's just that past FreeStepDodge, this has consumed practically every DOA forum to the point that you can't even touch a single one without someone even they wasn't even in the DOA community whining about the fanservice.
It's worse that you even see places like Eventhubs doing even more damage by basically bringing up things like the Strongest Package but trying to hide behind "We know how many fighters may be in the game" even though people guessed that from a Shimbori interview months back and Americans NEVER got a single one of those super editions and those are primarily only for the Japanese Audience.

The absolute worst part? Shimbori never stated the fanservice was disappearing or anything and they have been consistently saying that since Day 2. And I say this as a person who has consistently been reading interviews, actually bothered to watch DOA streams sponsored by Team Ninja and even watched the IGN E3 livestream. And you have these same people acting as if "they've won" when they didn't win shit.

I'm just tired of seeing this shit on so many forums that it drained my enthusiasm to spread DOA news here because it was obviously going the same route and I found it better that I actually cut it off at the past because it's damn obvious the journalists won't do it and neither of those who complain(it's ironic, this whole mess started because people believed IGN's translation over Shimbori's own words... one of the very places people say to ignore otherwise because muh gamergate and such...)

Sorry for that secondary tangent, I'll make sure to deliver some timely DOA news, gameplay and whatever when I can find it even if it's from the DOA6 Invitational at this past EVO.

And also the DOA Festival will be returning in November so I'll make sure to keep people up to date with that too.

Alright after my rant... I'm going to be doing something slightly different from now on because having people only want to post here in droves because "muh fanservice" is seriously getting droll.

So instead I'm just going to post some matches people put up on Youtube because there needs to be more than just... this:



According to those with more attentive eyes than mine, Break Blows are stupidly unsafe to the point you can punish a Break Blow with a free one on command, you can mistime Break Holds meaning that you can still mess them up and when you trigger the Danger Zone that they do(the Octopus rocking the boat), you get a free small combo opportunity from it.





And something I knew about a week or so ago but I always found it funny:

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty
Zack actually has eyes... it's pretty weird finally seeing him without glasses for once.
