The original boss from the first Dead or Alive game, Raidou, has been confirmed as a playable character in the upcoming Dead Or Alive 5 Last Round update. We all asked if he was actually dead, or alive, and it turns out we finally have an answer!

Oh, but he was dead. Very dead. You saw to that. However, "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."

It's like music to your ears, really. Team Ninja released a wealth of screenshots showing off Raidou's bigger, stronger, faster new look. Check them out below.
