Dead or Alive 6 appears to censor Break Blows involving its younger characters like Marie Rose

Every character featured in Dead or Alive 6 is listed as being over 18 years old, but some would argue that a select number of the female fighters may actually appear younger with Marie Rose, Honoka and newcomer NiCO.

The developers behind the game appear to be saying they don't entirely disagree with that notion considering they seem to have modified a certain in-game mechanic when it involves one of those three ladies.

Dead or Alive 6 added the new Break Gauge System which allows players to either land powerful strikes with Break Blows or flashy counters with Break Holds against their opponents.

Landing a Break Blow in DOA6 is meant to emphasize impact — and can destroy costume pieces like Christie's bra, as the camera will zoom in on a fighter's head as they're getting punched or kicked where we can see blood and sweat shoot out while their face contorts... except when it reportedly involves the three aforementioned characters.

If Marie Rose, Honoka or NiCO are hit by a Break Blow that would lead to them getting punched or kicked in the face, the camera will not zoom in or show the extra details and instead show a different angle of the attack.

There are also a number of Break Blows that strike the opponent's chest in which case the camera also doesn't zoom in as closely, but Ibukithememe has uploaded some screenshots so you can see how Mila's attack changes depending on if she's hitting Helena or Marie. Famitsu also compiled every Break Blow in Dead or Alive 6 which you can check out after the jump.
