Dead or Alive 6 Ending Development in Mid April

On Twitter, Koei Tecmo announced Dead or Alive 6's patch 1.22 will be the final DLC for the game. Version 1.22 content includes High Society costumes, School Uniforms, and bug fixes. Current features like online matches and the store will remain online, but no further content will be released for DOA6. It's unknown if Team Ninja will revive DOA6 with an "Ultimate" or "Last Round" edition, but relatively poor sales and consistently low player numbers would suggest otherwise.

Granblue Fantasy Versus Djeeta Gameplay Reveal Trailer

This morning, Cygames uploaded the Granblue Fantasy Versus gameplay reveal trailer for upcoming Season 1 DLC character, Djeeta. The female "silent protagonist" of the original Granblue Fantasy RPG, Djeeta could potentially be considered the "Ken" of the cast - if you consider Gran as the "Ryu".

Sega Opens 60th Anniversary Website, No Virtua Fighter Announcement

Not surprisingly, Sega's teaser from a few days back wasn't anything related to Virtua Fighter after all. Sega's (arguably cruel) teaser was only to announce the opening of their new 60th Anniversary website, which looks at the history and timeline of Sega as a company. Sega chairman Haruki Satomi also provided a message to fans, "The year, 60 years will have passed since Nihon Goraku Bussan Co. Lid., the predecessor of Sega, was established on June 3, 1960.

Sega is Teasing "Something" to Celebrate 60th Anniversary

A silhouette of a man in a Karate gi appears in a teaser image posted today on Sega's official website. The teaser says (in Japanese) that an announcement will be made by Sega on March 25th... but regarding what? The text in the image translates to "6 days until birth". At first glance, the inclusion of the "6" would immediately make Sega fans hopeful for a Virtua Fighter 6 announcement. Before you get your hopes up for VF6, the teaser mostly relates to Segata Sanshiro.
