Despite seeming dead on arrival, Team Ninja’s Dead or Alive 6 actually performed decently in its launch month. According to publisher Koei Tecmo’s recent financial report, the fighting game shipped 350,000 units across PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Given that it launched on March 1st and the fiscal year ends on March 31st, that’s not half bad.
Other titles that Koei Tecmo provided updates on include 700,00 units shipped for Warriors Orochi 4 on Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch. This is up from 310,000 shipments in the last report, with the title first becoming available in Japan on September 27th, 2018, before releasing in North America and Europe in mid-October.
Koei Tecmo does have quite a bit in the works, especially with E3 2019 around the corner. They recently announced a collaboration with Atlus for Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, a Dynasty Warriors-style beat ’em up with characters from the RPG. Team Ninja is also working on Nioh 2, the action RPG Soulslike that was announced at Sony’s E3 2018 presser.
