Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 will not cross the Japanese border, apparently the treatment of women in the West would be at stake…
We know from the beginning but Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 (DOAX3 for short), the simulation game of beach activities, should not be born in the West. The information has also been confirmed last week on the Facebook page of the game A player who then asked if the game would come out in the US and European regions, the answer that was given to him was very clear:
“We will not get out DOAX3 in the West and we do not INTEND to change planes in the future. Thank you for ask asking.”
This warm response then buried the hopes of the small western rascals who hoped, his eyes filled with stars, to play with girls in swimsuits. Most surprising in this story, it is mainly the justification given for this decision:
“Do you know the problems in the video game industry resulting treatment of women in games? We do not want to mention it here, but we thought a lot about it in arriving at this decision. Thank you. “
So yes, young ladies, scantily clad, with generous shapes that wiggle in futile mini-games is not good taste pure, we agree. Yet it evoked this message rather belongs to a certain form of self-censorship. It’s probably not the reaction of the players feared team in the game, there obviously has a Western audience ready to jump on the portfolio that the first Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 and pretty combatants. It is then the institutions, the PEGI gender or feminist associations that may frighten Tecmo Koei, the title editor? One thing is certain, they believe that the Western market is too chilly for DOAX3 and their decision to reserve the game for Japanese fans seems irreversible.
However, not everybody seems resigned and some are desperate to engage girls in bikinis to Western American … exactly. Indeed, the developer Hunie Pot to whom we owe the game already HunieCam Studio, Tecmo Koei has proposed the sum of one million dollars for the Dead or Alive Xtreme publishing rights to three States:
.@KoeiTecmoUS I'll give you $1M for the rights to publish DOAX in the states. Serious offer, for whatever it's worth.

“Tecmo Koei, I give you $ 1 million for DOAX publishing rights in the United States. Serious offer, for what it’s worth … “
This desperate attempt has very little chance of success, it is hard Tecmo Koei monetize “the dignity of women” too well defended in the West apparently. It is sure to keep you posted if this deal goes anyway, and look at the time from which you can give a million dollars for Europe. Otherwise, it will just as small western coquinous merely videos of Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, and … that’s not so bad:
