Dead or Alive 6 released a free-to-play version in December, called Core Fighters. The game has been criticized more recently for its approach to cosmetic DLC, as the game charges money to change character's hair--even if you've purchased that hair color previously.

Dead or Alive 6 received a 7/10 in GameSpot's review, and reviewer Heidi Kemps found a lot to like about it: "Despite some missteps, DoA6 is a fun, engaging fighter with great-feeling, easy-to-pick-up combat, a strong sense of visual style, and a lot of personality."
