During an E3 segment with IGN showcasing Dead or Alive 6, the team behind the long-time fighting game series was queried about the possibility of the latest entry coming to the Nintendo Switch.

Shedding some light on the matter, it was explained technical hurdles would need to be overcome “in the coming days” before the game was even considered for the device. Maybe then, there would be a chance.

The developer Team Ninja has maintained good relations with Nintendo over the years, taking on the responsibility of Metroid: Other M during the Wii generation, Hyrule Warriors in the Wii U era and more recently handling Fire Emblem Warriors on the Switch. Back in 2011, the 3DS also played host to the team's Dead or Alive: Dimensions, which was praised as a quality portable fighting game.
