Dead or Alive 6 is getting an online beta exclusively for PlayStation Plus subscribers, Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja have announced.

The teaser is going live at 3.00pm GMT today and wraps up on January 14 at 14.59pm GMT. Players will be able to take the Online Versus mode for a spin and pick one of five characters, including Kasumi, Ayane, Hayate, Hayabusa, and newcomer Diego.

You'll get one stage to duke it out on, namely the DOA Colosseum, which features exploding ring ropes. Hey, this is the game that features an actual Kraken in one of its levels, after all.

In addition to the online beta, Team Ninja also revealed a new trailer for Dead or Alive 6, which features Nyotengu, an exclusive pre-order character, plus the digital deluxe-exclusive brawler Phase 4.

Dead or Alive 6 is punching its way onto PS4, PC, and Xbox One on March 1, having been pushed back two weeks from its original launch date.
