Are you looking forward to smacking enemies in the head and bouncing breasts? If so, then you’re most likely looking forward to Dead or Alive 6. Unfortunately, KOEI Tecmo has announced the-not-so-surprising news that the game just got pushed back.
Originally set to launch this February 15, 2019, the Dead or Alive 6 delayed new date is March 1, 2019! This was announced on Twitter by the official KOEI Tecmo account.

In case you couldn’t read the message in the image, here’s what it says:
The title’s in development is already near complete; however we would like to take more time to further polish its balance, gameplay, and expressivity. In return for your patience, we commit to bringing you the best Dead or Alive gaming experience.
I am truly sorry for the inconvenience caused by the release delay of Dead or Alive 6.
– Yohei Shimbori (Dead or Alive 6 Director and Producer)
Given that big titles such as Anthem (February 22), Metro Exodus (Feb. 15). Far Cry New Dawn (Feb. 15), and a slew more are coming within Dead or Alive 6’s release window, this is a good marketing move by KOEI Tecmo.
