ESRB has rated Dead or Alive 6 and given it an M17+ for Mature rating. This is a higher rating than SoulCalibur 6 or Tekken 7, both of which received T for Teen.
Dead or Alive series is usually known for its explicit costume and breast jiggling physics, but they felt rather toned down in the first reveal trailer. This might change in the final game as ESRB has rated Dead or Alive 6 and given it an M rating.
Here is what they had to say in their description of the game.
This is a fighting game in which players engage in one-on-one matches with martial artists from around the world. Players mostly use punches and kicks to drain opponents’ life meters in fast-paced matches. Fighters can perform specialized attacks (e.g., magic blasts, exaggerated impact strikes), which are highlighted by slow-motion effects, close-up camera angles, and blood-splatter effects. Cutscenes depict additional acts of violence: robotic characters cut in half with a sword; helicopter machine guns shooting characters on the ground. A handful of costumes depict characters with narrow strips of cloth that barely cover their buttocks and/or pelvic areas. Some female fighters’ breasts jiggle while standing or fighting. In some sequences, players have the ability to zoom in on characters’ cleavage, posterior, or underwear, and take pictures. The word “sh*t” appears in the dialogue.
Dead or Alive 6 will also offer in-game purchases but judging from the past history of the game, they are usually costumes for the characters.
Dead or Alive 6 is set to launch on February 15, 2019, for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
