Dead or Alive 6 is a series that’s best known for the beautiful graphics and its characters to say the least. But the latest DLC for changing hair color has seen its fair share of controversy due to how it was implemented. But the team at Koei Tecmo has responded to the backlash with a fix that was implemented for the PS4 version of the game.
Initially, the hair color DLC had to use 1 Premium Ticket (roughly $1) for every time a hair color was changed. This makes it so you don’t ever truly own the hair color style and the player base felt like this was gouging them of their money.
The solution that KT has implemented has expanded how much you get for the purchase with 1 Premium Ticket. Now when you purchase the colors, it will give you all 16 hair colors for each hairstyle you purchase it for. For example, if you purchase the colors for a “short haircut style, you can only change colors for that 1 style. You will need to use a 2nd Premium Ticket if you want to purchase the colors for the “long haircut” style.
The official statement is here below:
Many players were not happy with this solution. They are still sore about how the DLC was first implemented and felt that making the hair color free was the right thing to do. All other fighting games that feature hair color changes make it available for free. Others complained asking why this fix was only pushed out for PS4 and not for the PC or Xbox One.
jfc this is still incompetent. The problem even before we realize the hair colors were as broke and gross as they were was that it was platform-exclusive. This patch needs to be rolled out on ALL platforms. Give us the hair colors on Xbox and PC too, omfg y’all are infuriating.

Still a joke. People were not just upset because you had to pay again to remove hair color! Ppl are also upset because you ask money for such a basic option available in any fighting game for free AND limiting its use to ps4 players, ignoring Xbox and PC fans. DOA6 is dead anyway

so we still have to buy the colours for each hairstyle and they still cost money? idk, i feel like the feature should’ve just been made free. we shouldn’t have to pay money for something like this…

Bruh what? Tecmo….COME ON. We have to unlock hair color for each INDIVIDUAL HAIR STYLE? Stop being greedy and just make it FREE LIKE EVERY OTHER FIGHTER.
