A Tecmo source at X05 in Amsterdam has confirmed that Dead or Alive 4 will feature a secret character from the Halo universe. This is the first time that Team Ninja has included a character in the DoA series outside of Tecmo boundaries—we’ve seen Namco make similar moves in the Soul Calibur series. Including a Halo character is a bold statement, re-emphasizing Team Ninja’s preference for the Xbox 360—and it’s also a way to attract some sales from Halo jocks. We should also note that the source stated that Master Chief will not be the secret character, but declined to give further details—will it be the Arbiter? We’ll keep you posted.
