During E3 2019 last week, KOEI Tecmo announced which KOF characters would be DLC in Dead or Alive 6. Now the time has come where they are now available to purchase. You can get both Mai and Kula separately or you can get them with their associated costume packs. Of course Season Pass 1 owners will receive both of them and their costume packs for free.
You can view the full price listings below:
Dead or Alive 6 Character DLC
Mai Shirunui – £6.49/$7.99 Mai Costume Pack – £7.99/$9.99 Mai Shirinui + Costume Pack – £12.99/$15.99
KOEI Tecmo and Team Ninja have announced their first two DLC fighters that are coming to Dead or Alive 6 via it’s Season Pass #1. We knew that Mai Shiranui was going to be one of them but until now we only knew the second was also from the same King of Fighters series.
Now it has been announced that the second fighter is Kula Diamond, and they both will be going on sale next week on June 18th worldwide! If you want to see them both in action check out the reveal trailer below:

In what could be a strange turn of events, A.O.T 2 – which released back in March 2018 – now has a demo available to download. With the release of A.O.T 2 Final Battle only a couple months away now, if you have yet to play the title you can now get in some good action time with the omni-directional mobility gear.
The demo itself is now available on Playstation 4, XBOX One and Nintendo Switch. There is currently no Steam demo, but it is likely to arrive in the near future.
A.O.T 2 is a good fun recreation of the anime, and ‘Final Battle’ will be bringing more content from the third season. A.O.T 2 Final Battle will be launching worldwide on July 5th.
Have you played A.O.T 2 yet? Are you excited for the ‘Final Battle’ expansion? Let us know in those comments!
Ninja Gaiden 3 Razors Edge is the far improved version of Ninja Gaiden 3, removing the gimmick of where if you got too slash happy you’d be severely penalised. Now you can get into the great iconic Ninja Gaiden combat without hassle. As well as that new content was added for Ayane and Kasumi was added as a character to play in additional playthroughs or the challenges.
You can pick up the game digitally from the Microsoft store for £24.99/$29.99 much like Ninja Gaiden II, or you can play the game via a physical copy you can likely pick up at your local retailer fairly cheap.

Last week Dynasty Warriors 9 received a major Spring update that added a whole bunch of quality of life improvements including new Bodyguard and Animal Companion systems. Now along with this patch update, a Daily Bonus Campaign has now started underway.
Running from April 4th until May 18th, each day you play the game will grant you different bonuses such as increased gold or increased synthesis yields. It also looks like these bonuses will change things up every so many days also.
The current bonuses you can find below:
DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 DAILY CAMPAIGN BONUS
Monday – Increased gold, increased effectiveness of “Tranquilizer Arrows”.
Tuesday – Increased experience, increased effectiveness of “Tranquilizer Arrows”.
Wednesday – Additional material drops, increased effectiveness of “Tranquilizer Arrows”.
Thursday – Additional “Book of Musou” drops, increased effectiveness of “Tranquilizer Arrows”.
Friday – Additional “Old Coins” drops, increased effectiveness of “Tranquilizer Arrows”.
Saturday – increased effectiveness of “Tranquilizer Arrows”.
Sunday – Additional “Synthesis” materials drops, increased effectiveness of “Tranquilizer Arrows”.
Until April 13th UTC
When April 13th hits, we can only assume these bonuses will change for further days of play. So keep an eye in game if you are interested in taking advantage of these daily bonuses.
Dynasty Warriors 9 is out now for Playstation 4, XBOX One and PC via Steam. This event is active on all systems. Also a quick note, the patch is now live for XBOX One users of Dynasty Warriors 9!

It’s not very often we get to put out new coverage for Dynasty Warriors 9, but here we are Spring 2019 – just over a year from it’s initial launch back in February 2018, and KOEI Tecmo has pushed out a big Spring Update, free for all players of the game!
For those of you still playing or have been waiting for a reason to get back into the game, but are unsure on about purchasing the rather expensive DLC packs (expect a Warriors’s Judgement on this soon). Now may be the time to gather your fellow Warriors and head back out into the open world of China!
The update itself includes the following:
DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 v1.27 (PS4) / v1.24 (Steam)
–Added BGM from Previous DYNASTY WARRIORS series.
–Added new emotes.
–Added an animal companion system.
–Added a bodyguard system.
–Added new modes “Rampage” to the Arena.
–Made Improvements to Castle Sieges.
–Added animals to the gallery.
–Corrected a number of other minor issues.
The XB1 version of the game should also now have the update as of time of writing.
As you can see, there is quite a lot to dig your teeth into. Not only do we just have update notes, KOEI Tecmo have also gone into detail on what some of these new systems entail. Now animals will be able to develop as they fight alongside you, with varying degrees of differences on how each animal will develop uniquely. Though to also add to this, if your animal happens to fall in battle, then they are permanently dead. You can also spend upgrade points on developing your animals even further, increasing their abilities on the field of combat.
Alongside the new integrated animal companion system, there is the bodyguard system. You can now invite a fellow officer to join you as an AI companion either by finding them in town or inviting them to your hideaway. You will also have the choice to swap their weapons and accessories. There are two categories of bodyguards, “Attack” type and “Defense” type, so pick which fits your fighting style best!
That’s all there is for this update, but it’s good to see the ol’ girl is still kicking, even if the game suffered a dreadful launch. Certainly now, even still with it’s quirks and oddities, the content is finally here for us to dabble in.

In some random news (thanks to our buddy BlackKite), KOEI Tecmo has formed a collaborative partnership with 2019 Suzuka 8 Endurance Race, with Dynasty Warriors 9 characters featuring as sponsors for Motorcycle manufacturers that are part of it all.
Along with the partnership and characters sponsoring, the manufacturers Motorcycles will also be sporting Dynasty Warriors 9 themed liveries. They have already featured in quite a few PR events around Japan for the upcoming Endurance Race.
Below you can see the four guys representing their brands:
You can find more information and images of their collaborative efforts on their Event site here! There is currently no news if these collaborative outfits will make their way to the Dynasty Warriors 9 game itself. So we just have one question left to ask, which manufacturer do you support?

Last week KOEI Tecmo have launched the free-to-play version of Dead or Alive 6. Known as Dead or Alive 6: Core Fighters, much like the 5th version’s iteration, you’ll be able to access a bunch of the game’s modes along with a base roster of playable characters. With this as well you will be able to purchase individually exactly what you want from the fighting game, such as fighters and other modes.
You can read the official information on the game below:
Dead or Alive 6: Core Fighters offers fighting game fans a limited look into the world of Dead or Alive 6, including four base characters—Kasumi, Hitomi, Diego, and Bass—as well as online ranked battles, Versus, Arcade, Time Attack, Training, and Quest modes. In addition, Dead or Alive 6’s introduction to Story mode will be unlocked, along with DOA Central, the hub for everything from wardrobe and music to the library and theater.
More content is planned to release for the game on all platforms, as well as free updates such as upcoming Lobbies for online play. Our review is still in the works (sorry for the delay, but due to the site upgrade and forum development things have slowed to a crawl), but will be available for your viewing pleasure soon.
This is a great way if you are undecided to give the game a solid good go, and the characters available are quite a fun bunch to master. Let’s end this post with a nice launch trailer showcasing the Core Fighters’ experience.
Dead or Alive 6 is out now on Playstation 4, XBOX One and PC via Steam. The free-to-play Core Fighters is also available now on the same platforms.
