Dead or Alive 6

Today, Dead or Alive 6 was released from Koei Tecmo America and Team Ninja. Fighting veterans and newcomers alike are invited to hop into the DOATEC's arenas to battle it out.

The base game retails for $59.99 and is available on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam. There also seems to be a Digital Deluxe Edition that starts at $79.99. This more expensive version includes Phase 4 as a bonus character, a bonus costume for Kasumi, 25 costumes, and 3 extra music tracks. There is also an "early purchase bonus" for those that get the game before April. This allows you to get an alternate Kasumi costume and Nyotengu as an extra character.

But what if you want more?

If you do, you're going to need to spend $92.99 for the "DOA6 Season Pass 1." Oh yes, that's actually the price and yes, I did say that it was Season Pass 1 there, implying there will be more. What does $93 and one season pass get you?

It gets you 62 costumes and only two new characters. But what if you wanted to just get one or two items and not spend $93 to get them? Right now that's simply out of the question. It's certainly possible that each item will be released as separate pieces of DLC after they're made available in the Season Pass, but it's only a guess right now.

The Steam page description does note that individual pieces of content that are included in this Season Pass will be sold separately later on. It's just that in the here and now, asking $93 for the first of how ever many season passes is a very tall order indeed.
