Today Dead or Alive Producer Yosuke Hayashi announced the development of Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, but bad news came afterwards.
It might have to do with some of the content that might be in it.
Is PS4 region free? Would love an opportunity to play this :)
Yes it is my friend.
The Asian version might even have English translations.
Has to do with all the SJW BS going on. Not that the game promises to be a masterpiece, especially because its fluff, publishers don't want to deal with the headache trying to put it out in the West will cause.
Aww. Among other things (wink wink) I really like the music and atmosphere of the second game.
I wounder if they're not planning to releasing it in the west because they're afraid of a feminist lynch mod attacking the game as the most 'problematic' thing ever. Really hope they change their mind but hey, at least the PS4 and Xbox One are region free. ;)
If this is to be a japan and Asia exclusive, what platforms will this be available on?
They can disagree, but the question is; why develop to xbone for a japan and asian exclusive market?
We can thank SJWs for this one... they knew they'd be complaining about boobs and "unrealistic" women and feel "triggered" by it all.
Will this be on consoles? because i'm getting a F2P PC only vibe here, with tons and TONS of microtransactions.
Lol! I take it Ur feeling this more than most
And nothing of value was lost.
Agree, this is not even a game ... Just a pervert toy
Good thing PS4 and X1 are region free
Probably because of SJW and reviewers that will complain about sexism.
Yup! If there was a Western version, it would most definitely be edited.
For what though? God of War III, Heavy Rain and Witcher III have more nudity and actual sex -_-
Well done to all the libertarians out there that have upheld the rights of virtual women. They have created a new world full of freedom and justice, enough so that we now have a case of self-censorship for fears of the social media lynch mob.
I pretty sure you mean liberals, not libertarians.
Social Justice Nazi warriors censor games. Thanks for destroying my escapist fictional hobby. Feminism has gone too far.
well that sucks, people around the world on playstation and xbox have been enjoying all their games for years... i hope they put up a poll on how many european and western markets want this game.
Is this an arcade, mobile, or Vita game? These games play up the cheesecake but they're tame enough to where they wouldn't really cause a commotion in the US anymore. So I have to imagine it's a platform thing, unless they plan on making a full on pornographic PC game ...
Well damn...I hope SJWs are happy now ¬_¬ At least you can still import it. It'll be just like the old days when many japanese games never got localized. We're back to niche poverty tactics!
The game makers can not whine after this bombs
Almost feel like importing it just to give a middle finger to the sjw clowns.
I think this game NEEDS to come out to North america and the rest of the world so it slaps these feminist in the face.
Just release this Domestically as a digital title. No need to hold it back because of some silly group
It's all good guys ps4 is region free just get the import version and brush up on your Japanese.
Well this sucks.
Post on their Facebook page , maybe with enough interest they'll change their minds.
so since the ps4 is region free we could still play it!? am i getting this right?
Games like Heavy Rain, Witcher 3 and God of War 3 have lots of nudity and actual sex .. I can't even -_-
Half naked girls beating the shit out of each other = ok half naked girls playing Volleyball = sexism I don't buy that.... It's probably not being released anywhere else because the last 2 didn't sell well outside of Asian markets. Brain dead games with pretty girl eye candy have always had a huge market in Asian countries, and always will.
Oneechanbara, Senran Kagura, and Neptunia all feature heavy amounts of fan service and they had no problems releasing here. I think this actually has more to do with the cost of overseas localization vs the profit turnout. It just isnt worth the hassle despite the last 2 games selling better in the US then Japan
Those are published by niche company like D3 & NIS... most people will overlook or even unaware of them... On the other hand, Tecmo Koei is a main stream publisher.. which guarantee to be the obvious target of SJWs...
But DOA these days is niche in nature. It's never shown at an E3 or any major american event and sticks only to TGS and some FGC tournaments. It's about as niche a fighting game you can get.
BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! The only good news really is that the PS4 and XB1 aren't regionally locked for games released only in Japan & Asian market. I still won't buy it though. They are probably doing this because the first 2 games sold like crap in USA and Europe.
I can't imagine it being any more "sexist" than the 2nd one... It had unlockable pole dances. Shame on them for letting a vocal minority ruin the fun for the rest of us. Won't be importing the game, as far as I'm concerned they just lost my sale. Just release it worldwide, so what if feminists get offended? Let them, it's their choice. The worst they can do is get the game banned, which would be better than not releasing it at all. Idiots.
Please do not import it, vote with your wallets people. Make them earn our money by not being cowards and releasing it over here. Importing this will fix nothing. If enough people stick to their guns and only buy it if there is a worldwide release then maybe it'll happen.
Not enough women of color to make me even remotely interested.
Iam going to theorize that this may very well be a marketing ploy and an attempt to gauge consumer interest in the game. If so excellent idea on tecmos part. At this moment plenty of pissed off westerners on Facebook and Twitter venting about tecmo needing to make this game available here. There is also a petition active on tecmo Facebook asking for signatures to have tecmo bring it here. So most definitely its created a buzz and its growing. It will launch in Japan first of course and if by that time the interest remains strong they will bring it here. Iam certain they will not dedicate the manpower to a well known game to only keep it in their country. On last check doa last round is doing very well and tecmo is so pleased with the dlc interest that it's the reason for the season two pass and continued support. Tecmo is riding a huge wave of success right now and showing no signs of slowing down. With multiple collaborations with other game developers to make costumes based on their games. Aside from a soft ban on sexy costumes during tournaments (which makes sense) they stand firm with the sexiness of their game even against those who would try to bring it down as was recorded during an interview. Tecmo is paving the way toward mainstream acceptance of sex appeal in video games and I applaude them.
the femnist agenda is annoying
I use to love DOA its what made me pick up the original Xbox back in 2001.Then DOA4 on the X360 back in 2006 was just insane fun.Now DOA is a piece of garbage that last game was so bad i dont think it even sold 100,000 on all platforms combined last gen and this gen.They need to do away with this franchise what once was a masterpiece is now a piece of garbage
