Raidou Returns in DEAD OR ALIVE 6

By Megan Walton, 20 days ago
After the last trailer showed off exclusive additional characters Nyotengu and Phase 4, we have now been treated to another character reveal and a sneak peek at some modes and levels from DEAD OR ALIVE 6.


DEAD OR ALIVE veterans will remember Raidou from the first game, the original baddie who was thought to have died at the end of the game. After making an appearance in the fifth instalment, he's back once again and deadlier than ever.

With Mugen Tenshin Ninjutsu as a base, he favors a power-focused fighting style. Raidou makes use of his colossal physique while slamming opponents with a series of devastating strikes he is able to mimic from others, while at the same time, mixing in jaw-dropping moves of his own, such as the Tenho-Gorai-Sho and the Rekku-Jinraisatsu.

To accompany this announcement, we've been given a sneak peek at two new stages. A.P.O takes place in the hallway of the M.I.S.T facility. Chinese Festival is set in Chinatown during the festival and has firecrackers scattered across the floor, which could be used to your advantage.

We've also been shown two new modes, Quest and Training. Quest sees gamers complete individual quests and be rewarded with player points and cosmetic items, and Training allows gamers to learn the ins and outs of all the systems in DEAD OR ALIVE 6.

With all this information at hand, you should be ready for DEAD OR ALIVE 6 when it releases on March 1st.

We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the DEAD OR ALIVE 6 achievements.
