Koei Tecmo has announced that the fighting tournament Evo 2018 will feature the first public playable build of Dead or Alive 6.
The Evo tournament takes place over August 3rd and 4th in Las Vegas, and will feature a small Dead or Alive 6 tournament.
The game’s director, Yohei Shimbori, of developer Team Ninja, will be present at the tournament to promote the game.
On top of that, a Dead or Alive 5Last Round championship is also going to be taking place. The winner will see a cool $6,000 in prize pool money.
Dead or Alive 6 is currently in development for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game is scheduled to be released in early 2019.
In a recent interview with Famitsu (via DualShockers), Shimbori spoke about toning back the series’ trademark sexuality, and going for more of a ‘cool’ image. This involves going for more of a gritty look: blood and sweat and dirt will accumulate on fighters as matches progress.
It will be exciting to see how Dead or Alive 6 looks, then, as well as how it performs.
