Bungie Confirms DOA4 & Halo Rumor (HOT ITEM)
Andrew 'Talon' Wilson :: 10:53 AM @ October 4th, 2005 :: Xbox 360: Action
:: Print This Article :::: Send This Article To A Friend ::
The last couple days have seen rumors flying around about a character from Halo appearing in Dead Or Alive 4 for the Xbox 360. The rumor, which started out at Game Informer, this morning (or should we say last night?) has been officially confirmed by Bungie. Done through the latest posting on Bungie's website, the company issued the following blurb.
Game Informer printed a story on their website CLAIMING that a Halo-related character was going to be hidden away in Team Ninja�s upcoming Dead Or Alive 4 for the Xbox 360. Well, we often respond to rumors with immediate denials, often pouring scorn on this type of scurrilous gossip. But not this time�

Bungie has indeed been chatting with the good folks over at Team Ninja. We�re huge fans of DOA and Ninja Gaiden, and when Team Ninja approached us with an intriguing idea, well, we were intrigued. Naturally. Tomonobu Itagaki�s team is among the most talented in the games business, and we�ve SEEN the character in action. Words like, OMG, BBQ and Zoinks immediately come to mind. What they've done so far, is perfectly capture the essence of (insert crackpot theory here) and bring an element of Halo directly into the DOA world. It's cool. And by cool, I mean totally sweet.

Put it this way, we�re already practicing on DOA Ultimate just so we have a head start when we try to unlock OUR character when DOA4 launches. We�re going to tell you lots more about how this idea came to fruition in a future update, and we�ll tell you how this character fits into the Halo and DOA universe too. Don�t worry, Team Ninja handled the fighting style, and we handled the story aspects. You�ll be pleasantly surprised by the explanation for a Halo character in the DOA universe, even if it�s a bit tongue in cheek.

Who is this mysterious character? We can�t say. Almost every denizen of our universe has some kind of capacity for violence, and it could be anyone�or anything. So keep guessing. The answer will be revealed in time. Oh, and although I did hint at this surprise in last week's update, that wasn't everything....

The entire quotable bit above is followed by what appears to be a dismissal of the hidden character being Gravemind, with a somewhat "animated" picture of Cortana and crew. With X05 kicking off, we should have more information on this soon.

Retarded. And by retarded, I mean totally fucking stupid.
#2 - Phobia - 10/04/05 @ 11:43 AM EST
Microsoft told us we had to, so we are excited
#3 - Amnesiac - 10/04/05 @ 11:44 AM EST
Some times I think Bungies love of "theories" and their little games of make the public guess by providing vague details gets a little old. They're like the company who can't tell a story with out first having to try and build a wall of suspense. If Bungie ever did a straight forward press release with real information to answer some questions I'd prolly shat all over my self.
#4 - LostToys - 10/04/05 @ 11:54 AM EST
Is that Cortana or Miranda Keyes? Been too long since I've played the game, so I don't remember how their hair designs were different.
#5 - nVidiot_Whore - 10/04/05 @ 12:27 PM EST
I swear.. some of you bitch about the stupidest shit..

As if any character in a fighting game makes sense.. LOL

But I agree that Bungie's PR policies are retarded... the whole "hype" thing.. ugh..

Well say what ya want. I still love the Gregorian Chant shit. lol I can imagine a bunch of em=Priests sitting around in the depths of a secret church somewhere, chanting while sitting in front of some flatscreens duking it out with Halo Too. ;p

Oh ohhhh ohh oh oh ohhhhhhhhh oh oh hahahaha

A hearty laugh, turned into a joking laugh, turned into "who gives a fuck" sigh

... and with that, a Hot Item was born.

nVidiot Whore, in reply to #5. See #1, but in relation to you!

Wtf do you mean no characters in fighting games make any sense?!

Don't you remember the giant panda in Tekken 3?!
#12 - LostToys - 10/04/05 @ 04:38 PM EST
nemarsde -

Personaly, I am more into men with Jaguar heads, or fighting trees. Definately trees.
#13 - Talon - 10/04/05 @ 04:58 PM EST
What about pandas? How do you feel about those guys?
#14 - colinp - 10/04/05 @ 05:22 PM EST
Yeah but Tekken has always had retarded characters. And Tekken has always been a shitty game. This is DOA! Though the end boss, I think, of DOA3 was stupid (if I remember correctly).
#15 - Megahurtz - 10/04/05 @ 06:09 PM EST
Fighting Vipers had a car you could play as...
#16 - EyeLikeP00 - 10/04/05 @ 08:32 PM EST
Maybe the Halo character will be a Warthog...
#17 - Talon - 10/04/05 @ 08:38 PM EST
You know what was a fun old fighter? Fighters Megamix for the Sega Saturn. It was complete insanity. The game had Virtua Fighter, Fighting Vipers, Virtua Cop characters, characters from Sonic The Fighters. The game even let you fight as the Daytona stock car.

I still have my copy burried within my closet of games. I think I'll take it out tonight.
#18 - Megahurtz - 10/04/05 @ 09:22 PM EST
King from Tekken isn't that far of a stretch. He's more or less a ripoff of a Tiger Mask, one of Japan's most famous pro wrestlers ever.
#19 - Maitreya - 10/04/05 @ 10:03 PM EST
Umm, are we suppose to go ' Yay Bungie' or something?
Here I thought it was about a Halo 2 PC release (prays) or Halo 3.=p
#20 - BiomeXhanoid - 10/04/05 @ 11:36 PM EST
Yup. King I was a fusion of Tiger Mask and Jyushin Thunder Liger.

colinp: You're a f!cktard.

As for DOA's leetness, The last world tourney was won by a guy who had been playing the game for three weeks and who literally used ONE move over and over, and cried after winning his semifinal round. Retarded.
