Dead or Alive sầu Extreme
You might be wondering where Dead or Alive 6"s lakiểm tra DLC character comes from since Koei Tecmo pretends that Dead or Alive sầu Xtreme doesn"t exist in North America. But it does, & you should know about it.


Dead or Alive has always been a fighting game franchise that has over accentuated their female fighters" assets. The first game released on the Sega Saturn và PlayStation 1 back in the "90s khổng lồ middling success, but Dead or Alive 2 hit the Dreamcast và PlayStation 2 with its vastly improved hardware. Notably, the consoles allowed for then-novel "jiggle physics" that made parts of the women fighters anatomy far more life-lượt thích.

Since then it’s been pretty much standard issue for all Dead or Alive games khổng lồ come after it, including the bizarre spinoff series that began with Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball.

Although the game reviewed relatively well và even had some decent volleyball gameplay, you will not find a more transparent attempt to grab the eyes of lonely hetero male gamers in any other Clip game franchise.


Transparent though it may be, the ploy worked. Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball 2 came out in 2006 for the Xbox 360, followed by Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 for the PS4 in 2016. However, that last game was only available for Asian audiences as Xtreme 3 never made it to North America.

This is where things get weird. Xtreme 3 was eventually turned into a free-to-play PC version called Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation. It reuses a lot of DOAX3"s assets but adds a few minigames to fit the new demographic. It launched in Japan in 2017 và included English subtitles, but it never released in Europe or North America.

Venus Vacation was a huge success in nhật bản, however. So successful that Koei Tecmo regularly advertises using the Venus Vacation name.

It became clear in năm ngoái just what was going on. A Koei Tecmo employee posted a bizarre rant against DOAX3 on the company Facebook page that was quickly taken down, but in their apology, Koei Tecmo made it clear they were keeping the Dead or Alive sầu Xtreme series to Japan/Asia-only.


Fast-forward to lớn 20trăng tròn và we"ve sầu recently found out that one of the new characters added in Venus Vacation is now coming to Dead or Alive 6 as a DLC character. Takamày is a swimsuit mã sản phẩm with no obvious martial arts background, but that doesn"t appear khổng lồ be stopping Koei Tecmo from shoehorning her into a game she was never intended for.

The best part? As Twinfinite points out, the Japanese ads for Takami openly acknowledge her Venus Vacation origins, but the North American ads leave it out. She"s just a "curious gal" that"s wearing a string nội y lớn a street fight.
