Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Could Head West, Says Producer
Koei Tecmo is considering shipping the girls out West, as Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 could be localized if the demand is there.
In an interview with Famitsu (via Destructoid), producer Yosuke Hayashi revealed that Koei Tecmo is interested in a Western release of the upcoming T&A simulator, Dead or Alive Xtreme 3. This sequel was recently announced for the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, though the Vita version is supposedly going to be called Dead or Alive Xtreme Venus. Hayashi explained that Koei Tecmo will translate and localize the game if they think it will do well in the West. Considering the number of times Koei Tecmo re-released Dead or Alive 5 over the past three years, I have a feeling we'll see the girls return with even more skin showing than before.
The Xtreme series is a spin-off from the main Dead or Alive franchise. While Dead or Alive mainly consisted of well-endowed women fighting (with Ryu Hayabusa and a few other males thrown into the mix), the Xtreme series eliminates the brawling aspect and puts its ladies front, center and jiggling. Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball first debuted on the original Xbox in 2003, followed by a sequel three years later on the Xbox 360. If you're unfamiliar with the spin-off series, just picture Dead or Alive's female cast at a beach resort, where gameplay mainly consists of horribly simplistic mini-games and QTEs that act as excuses to watch back-breaking, ginormous breasts flop around like Flubber even after the characters stopped moving.
While you're waiting for Dead or Alive Xtreme 3's localization, make sure you have this song on repeat:
