The Dead or Alive 6 hair color saga is about to end, and it seems like the fix has the potential to address every issue people had with the practice. The official Twitter account revealed the PlayStation 4 version of the game will get update 1.21a on March 31, 2020. It will make all hair color unlocks both permanent and include all colors for the cost of the Premium Tickets. In addition, anyone who did spend Premium Tickets, which cost real cash, on hair colors will be getting those tickets back.
Here is the full statement on how the Dead or Alive 6 hair color fiasco will be fixed on March 31st. Essentially, the update serves to wipe the slate clean and start fresh. However, it doesn’t note if the price of unlocking hair colors will still be one Premium Ticket, or if that will change since you now unlock all 16 colors for a hairstyle when you make a purchase.
Release date for patch v1.21a is scheduled to be on March 31st. (v1.21a is applied only for PS4 version.)
- The hair color change feature has now been revised: hair color can now be unlocked permanently for any hairstyle that offers it, and includes all available colors. (E.g., if you purchase Hair Color for Marie Rose’s “Long” hairstyle, you will unlock all 16 hair colors for this hairstyle).
- All Premium Tickets that were used to purchase hair colors prior to this update have been refunded. (E.g., if you have used 5 tickets to purchase hair colors on v1.20 and v1.21, you will receive 5 Premium Tickets when you apply the v.1.21a update).
- As a result of the revision, all hair color settings have been reset to default.
The Dead or Alive 6 hair color update was added to the PlayStation 4 version of the game on February 25, 2020 and would give each character 16 color options. However, it became a controversial decision, as people would have to use a paid Premium Ticket each time they wanted to change the hair color, even if they already had “purchased” that color before. The colors also weren’t tied to save data, so they could be lost if you lost your save. In early March 2020, Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja confirmed they were working on a solution, which will now roll out at the end of the month.
Dead or Alive 6 is available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
