Raidou returns to DEAD OR ALIVE 6 roster

KOEI TECMO America and Team NINJA today announced Friday that “THE REGENERATION OF BRUTALITY,” Raidou would be returning to the roster of DEAD OR ALIVE 6.

This announcement comes on the heels of Brad and Eliot’s reveal, which can be seen at the bottom of this article.

The sinister ninja was thought to be killed during an explosion after the first DEAD OR ALIVE tournament, but his body was secretly recovered and experimented on using DOATEC’s biotechnology, and while that leaves Raidou without a mind of his own, he has now devolved into a madman who only craves strength and destruction.

Raidou, who was once known as the most dangerous and evil ninja in the DEAD OR ALIVE universe, is back thanks to the power of science, and his move-set is as brutal as 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.

Not only was Raidou announced, KOEI TECMO America released a new set of DEAD OR ALIVE 6 images showing off two never-before-seen stages: A.P.O. and CHINESE FESTIVAL.

A.P.O. showcases one of the hallways leading deep into the M.I.S.T. research facility where the immoral experiments take place. Meanwhile, CHINESE FESTIVAL is a colorful corner of Chinatown during a spring festival, complete with unused firecrackers scattered across the ground and ready to explode on impact.

In the extremely addictive DOA Quest, gamers will need to clear various missions during matches to complete each individual quest. Clearing missions will be awarded with Player Points and the unlocking of various cosmetic items. DOA Quest missions are designed for players to learn and memorize the various fighting systems and techniques, improving fighting ability while moving through the increasingly difficult set of challenges.

After learning the ropes in Quest mode, fighters can then further their DOA education in Training mode. Here, gamers will be able to learn every aspect of the DEAD OR ALIVE fighting system through the use of Free Training, Tutorial, and the more personal Command Training and Combo Challenge.

DEAD OR ALIVE 6 is currently in development for the PlayStation®4 Computer Entertainment System, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and digitally on Windows PC via Steam®, and will be released worldwide March 1, 2019.
