TRIVIA

Dead or Alive ++ was released in October 1998.

Presented by Team Ninja (see 'Staff' section for more information).

This game runs on Sony Playstation-based hardware while the original Dead or Alive runs on the more powerful Sega Model 2 hardware. Consequently, this game uses 3-D arenas surrounded by 2D backdrops while the original Dead or Alive uses a fully 3-D environment rendered in real time. However, this game compensates with smoother, rounder character models and better lighting effects.

TIPS AND TRICKS

• Play as Raidou : complete a game playing as Kasumi in Tournament Mode and defeating Raidou at stage 8, then in the name entry screen input the word 'SIAWASE?'. Raidou appears now in the character select screen.
