KOEI TECMO along with Team NINJA have announced that Raidou is returning to the Dead or Alive series. Thought to be dead after the events from the very first Dead or Alive, the evil ninja had actually been recovered and experimented on by DOATEC’s biotechnology. Now he returns, but not the same as before. Without a mind of his own, all he craves now is strength and destruction.
Favouring a power-focused fighting style, his base moves are Mugen Tenshin Ninjitsu. While he now has the ability to mimic strikes from opponents, he also has brutal moves of his own such as the Rekku-Jinraisatsu and the Tenho-Gorai-Sho.
Accompanying this announcement is the revelation of two new stages – A.P.O in the M.I.S.T. research facility where he was experimented on, and the Chinese Festival which is a colourful setting in Chinatown.
KOEI TEMCO Europe didn’t stop there though! There are also two new modes, which are Quest and Training. Quest is useful for players to learn fighting techniques before getting stuck into the game. This mode will require players to clear missions during matches to complete each quest. Doing this awards Players Points and unlocks cosmetic items. The other mode is Training mode, which will teach players every aspect of the games fighting system.
With a release date of 1st March 2019, Dead or Alive 6 will be available on PS4 and Xbox One. Keep an eye out for Raidou’s reign of terror!
