Dead or Alive 6 Will See the Return of Raidou

Raidou is coming back in Dead or Alive 6 but he's not the same as he once was.

One of the Dead or Alive franchise’s most iconic villains will again be returning in the upcoming sixth installment of the franchise.

As announced this morning by Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja, the evil ninja Raidou will again be returning in Dead or Alive 6. Raidou was thought to have been killed via an explosion all the way back in the first Dead or Alive. His body was recovered from the blast though and he now returns through the wonders of science as a partial cyborg in DOA6. Raidou will boast a vicious fighting style and will be able to copy moves from other fighters in the game.

Along with announcing Raidou, Koei Tecmo also unveiled two new modes for Dead or Alive 6 today. Quest is the first new mode and will let players accomplish different missions in fights to complete quests. Upon completion of these missions, you’ll then unlock points which will let you purchase more cosmetic gear for your fighters. The second mode is that of Traning and, well, you likely know what that entails. Training modes are almost always included in fighting games and DOA6 will be no different. If you want to learn how to better utilize certain characters and string together different moves, training is your best bet.

Dead or Alive 6 was recently delayed out of February 2019, but not by much. The game will now be arriving on March 1 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
