Team NINJA revealed that the final boss of the original Dead or Alive, Raidou, is confirmed as playable in the upcoming DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Last Round. Currently in development for the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Last Round is scheduled to launch in Europe on 20 February 2015 and will be available at a competitive price.


Team NINJA discloses new information regarding the return of the iconic Dead or Alive character – Raidou in DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Last Round. Presumed dead after being defeated in the original DOA Tournament, Raidou was partially reconstructed with cybernetics and now returns as a half-mechanized killing machine. Having lost his memory as a side effect of his cybernetic upgrades, all that remains is his unquenchable thirst for power, and his willingness to use whatever brutal methods it takes to achieve glory.




Hailing from the same ninja clan as Kasumi and Hayate, Raidou was exiled from his own village when his brutal thirst for power went too far, only deepening his hatred of the clan. His fighting style is Mugen Tenshin Ninjutsu at its core, and he even possesses the ability to recognize and imitate the moves of opponents he has encountered, while keeping original techniques up his sleeve. In new next-gen screenshots released today, Raidou squares off against the two deadly ninjas Hayabusa and Hayate in the electrifying Danger Zone stage. Additionally, characters Kasumi, Phase 4, Tina, Mila and Alpha-152 show off never before seen costumes and customizable hairstyles that will only be found in DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Last Round.
