With the first installment of the series released in 1996, Dead or Alive 6 is the sixth entry in the series. The story of the games builds upon the narrative of the previous game, and focuses on the fictional Dead or Alive tournaments.

By pre-ordering the game, PlayStation 4 players will receive an additional playable character named Nyotengu alongside a Dead or Alive 6 bonus theme. Xbox One players who pre-order will also unlock Nyotengu as well as a bonus costume for Ryu Hayabusa.
Additionally, as part of the Early Purchase Bonus program, console players who purchase the digital version of the game before March 14th will receive a bonus costume for the Kasumi character. PC players can also cash in on this offer and unlock the same costume alongside the Nyotengu playable character.
Dead or Alive 6 is currently being sold in two forms, Standard edition and Digital Deluxe edition.
